    Timothy Simpkin

    Center Director

    As Center Director, Timothy leads sales and parental outreach for Sylvan of Buffalo. A former care management supervisor and after-school site facilitator, Tim chose a career in the tutoring business because he felt his experience and education would be well suited to the task of helping struggling youth in succeeding academically. He studied at the University at Buffalo for his undergraduate and graduate degrees. When Tim isn’t at Sylvan, you’ll find him playing with his dog, exercising, playing music, or relaxing at home.
