> I have bee noticing an extreme drop off in my timing, and it isn't just off-speed pitches. I mean i can get the bat around it's just i get so out in front that when i adjust at the plate, i seem to loose all of my power when i try towait just a little longer before I launch my hands. I have tried loading more "quiet and early" as my private instructor said, so that i can fire my hand whenever i is necessary depending on the speed/type of pitch. It just seem like whatever I do it just doesn't help my timing nad it continues to get worse and worse, although I am seeing the ball fine, and when i actually get my timing right i can get the ball to go a long way

I would suggest trying to take the ball first to the opposite field and gradually work your way around to your pull field. Do this in batting practice first and move to use during the game. The purpose is to promote solid contact. Hitters like Wade Boggs, Carew, and Rose made a living doing that.
