Thank you for your interest in learning with me! I do appreciate your understanding and patience that I am a wilderness survival skills instructor and frequently spend extended amounts of time in the wilderness, away from technological communication and screens. It may take me over a week to return an email to you.

"We hired PrimiTim as the entertainment for our son’s birthday party last weekend and he was amazing. He was knowledgeable, creative, calm, and super hands on. I wish I could post pictures of all the kids (ages 2-6) watching intently as Tim did his thing. Or the video I have of the kids running gleefully in the backyard in cloudy/rainy/40 degree weather! Everyone truly enjoyed, kids and parents alike. 100% recommend!"

"We had an amazing time taking Tim’s survival skills class in Acton, MA.  My kiddo loved the class so much she is asking to do another one.  You learn really important skills, and have fun outside!  Tim is patient and kind with children, I would Definitely recommend his class."

"I took a spoon carving class and walked away with a cool spoon and a whole lot of knowledge. The class was very well designed. Very entertaining and educational, highly enjoyable and fun for any age."

"He is kind, generous and very knowledgeable. Anything with Tim is amazing!"

"Tim is a great guy and very talented in teaching people of every age. His passion for the outdoors and primitive skills shines through in the joy he has when sharing those skills with others."
