Meet Nick Timpone
Geographic areas served: U.S.
Nick Timpone has been teaching with the Singapore Math
® curriculum since 1998. He was one of the first teachers in the United States to implement Singapore Math® curriculum in a U.S. public school. Nick began his teaching career in Paterson, NJ School #2 where he was a member of the first Japanese lesson study group in the U.S. Nick then moved on to become the founding Math Teacher and Principal at Harlem Village Academies in New York, one of the highest performing middle schools in the country. It was during his tenure at Harlem Village Academy that Nick developed his passion for coaching teachers and in 2012 he decided to pursue that passion full time.
Since then he has worked with numerous public, private and charter schools to guide them through their adoption of the Singapore Math® curriculum. Nick provides teacher workshops, classroom observation/feedback sessions and model lessons. Teachers have found that watching Nick teach their own students is perhaps the most effective and efficient way to truly understand how to implement the concrete-pictorial-abstract approach unique to the Singapore Math® curriculum.
Nick holds a masters degree in Math education and has presented at many conferences nationwide including NCTM national and regional meetings. Nick specializes in coaching K-8 math teachers but has extensive experience coaching teachers of all subjects and grade levels.
Nick is currently the Founder/CEO of Primavera Professional Development LLC, based in Rahway, N.J. providing math training and pedagogical coaching for elementary and middle school teachers nationwide.
