More About Coach Tim

I have taught all academic subjects to grades 6-8 in the Boston Public School system since 2005. My specialty is working in Special Education, including adaptive physical education. I modify lesson plans to suit the needs of children with learning disabilities as well as physical limitations. There is a way for everyone to get better at any sport/activity that they desire and become successful. I played college basketball at Northeastern University in Boston, which is a part of the Colonial Athletic Association with powerhouses like VCU, George Mason, Old Dominion, etc. I have extensive coaching experience as follows:

*Coached Middle School boys basketball from 2007-2011 in Boston Public Schools.

*Coached Dorchester High School Boy's Basketball in 2005-2007

*Coached Dedham High School Boys Basketball 2007-2008

*Coached Bunker Hill Men's Basketball from 2008-2011

*Northeastern Summer Camps (Co-Ed Camps, 10-16 year olds, 2007-2010)

*BC High Summer Camps (Co-Ed 10-14 year olds, 2000-2002)

High school All-State and All-American nominee from Chicago, Illinois.

Led high school team to state championship (Illinois)

Earned athletic scholarship to Northeastern University (Boston, MA.)

Completed four years at Northeastern University, started my junior and senior year and led team in rebounds and field goal percentage.

Drafted to play in the Korean Basketball League in 2002.

Depending on the player and the skills we need to work on we will determine the session plan. It will usually consist of stretching, agility, coordination, rebounding, shooting, dribbling, etc. I have a rigorous plan that ensures the player will improve in all areas.

It was a great first with Coach Tim. His attention to detail is unbelievable and he would correct mistakes right away. I was glad to see that conditioning was tops on his list as well as ball handling drills and defense. This guy knows what he's doing and I hope to continue a long relationship with him as the boys trainer. Book him and you won't be disappointed.
12/2/2017 and my son is still going strong with Tim. I can't believe how good he's gotten since he's been training with Tim and the help he has received outside of training including AAU help. My son recently got his first prep school offer and I really believe his coachup training has a lot to do with it. 14 sessions so far and as long as Tim is a coachup trainer we will continue to book him. Best trainer period!!!

Our daughter has been working with Coach Tim for about 3 months and it has been a phenomenal experience. His workouts are challenging and geared to the aspects of the game that she needs to work on. Her skill level has improved tremendously as has her confidence. We highly recommend Coach Tim to any player looking to improve their fundamentals and take their game to the next level!

Tim has been great with my 13yo daughter. Her game is definitely improving under his guidance. He's extremely knowledgeable about the game and quickly recognized the areas she needed to focus on. I would highly recommend Tim as a coach.

Good workout--pushed hard and worked on shooting, finishing and footwork.

Coach Tim was very responsive and took the time to communicate with us to help nail down a location and time that worked for us. The location was out of his way, but he said that he wanted to work with my son and thats what mattered most. I was impressed by his dedication to his clients and my son was very happy with his session. I gave Tim five stars for meeting and exceeding the clients expectations. Keep up the good work!

Coach Tim has been great. He puts together excellent sessions and really is helping our son grow in a challenging but very encouraging way. He is very easy to work with and extremely responsive!

Coach Tim is an excellent coach. So hands on with my son. Just seeing my sons progress is outstanding. Can't wait to continue working with Coach Tim.

My son really loved his session with Coach Tim! They worked a lot on the fundamentals and Tim was great about supporting him and encouraging him. He gave him great suggestions to work on at home and my son has been in the basement dribbling nonstop! Tim was also really responsive to emails and scheduling changes with me (due to the weather). We are excited to work with him again!

Coach Tim was the best coach!! I'd like to recommend Coach Tim to my friends for sure!!!

Tim has the skill of tuning in each kids's need. That is a gift, and when my son was discouraged, Tim had the ability to build in his confidence and didn't allow him to give up. The results were outstanding. An absolute pro!

Coach Tim brought great energy, knowledge and positivity to our session. My son left feeling like he really accomplished a lot by meeting the challenges Coach Tim put before him - so much was done in just one session. Looking forward to the next one!!

Coach Tim is a great coach. He motivates my son during the sessions and always stay positive. He has a vast variety of drills that challenges my son to better himself. I would recommend coach West.

Coach Tim is fabulous! He worked our 12 year old daughter really hard and helped her improve her skills. He is a great guy and an excellent coach.

Tim is a great coach to my 12 year old son. Teaching him technique and raising his basketball IQ. He's a good mentor and I look forward to his involvement through my son's high school and hopefully college years.

We had such a great first session with Coach Tim that we signed up for two more sessions right away. He took our boys through an intense and focused set of drills and exercises. They already feel more prepared for tryouts. Thanks Coach Tim!

My son has completed three sessions, and Coach Tim has been fantastic in all respects. My son has enjoyed the sessions, has learned a great deal, and had great workouts. In addition, Coach Tim has been extremely flexible and responsive in scheduling, and has followed-up with valuable feedback and suggestions after each session.

My son has now had two sessions and already considers coach Tim to be the best coach he has ever had. The workouts are high intensity, well organized, and specific to what my son and coach Tim have targeted as areas needing improvement. We plan to work with Coach Tim long term to help my son reach his full potential for the upcoming season and beyond.

Coach Tim has been great for my son. My son wants to take his game to the next level and Tim is helping him do that but pushing him to work harder

I am most impressed with Coach Tim. He is a highly skilled coach who runs a very tight coaching session. He is highly focused on skills development along with conditioning. My son Matt really enjoys working with him. He is also a perfect gentleman! I recommend Coach Tim without any hesitation or reservation.

Tim is a fantastic coach. My son really enjoys his sessions and comes away from them very excited about what he has learned. We see a real improvement in his skills during games and a growing confidence level. Highly recommended coach!

Tim was awesome - his drills were very well thought out, and he was very well prepared...
he kept me motivated even though I'm a bit out of shape, and was tired - and the session was very fun, yet intense.

I can't wait for my next session

It was a pleasure to meet Coach Tim. I was extremely impressed by how professional and organized he was. Likewise, my son found his session with Coach Tim extremely effective. His feedback was specific and extremely helpful. My son is looking forward to working with him through the year on a regular basis to reach his goals.

I help my players exceed their goals!
