Patricia and Tim Bowers have each taught in both public and private high schools and middle schools. With a combined 48 years teaching experience, over 30 of which were in the classroom, the Bowers have the knowledge and methods to guide students, including those with challenges, to academic excellence.

After graduating from Bellarmine College Prep in San Jose, Tim attended San Jose State in the late 1960’s where he received his degree in secondary education. He completed two graduate years at Arizona State University and San Jose Sate and began his career in the Phoenix Union High School District.

Tim and Patricia started teaching in the Santa Clara Valley in the mid 1970’s. For the past twelve years they have tutored students from second grade through graduate school levels at their BBC Tutoring offices in San Jose.
