All of Bill’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Bill’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

I have an engineering degree and am still good with Algebra. I also used algebra concepts in my computer programming, and Visual Effects work.

I am certain that I can explain the concepts so you have a better understanding and a better mastery of Algebra.

Algebra 2

Algebra is a quantitative way of establishing relationships between different variables.

There are regular rules and procedures to simplify these relationships, so you can find the fundamental descriptive relationship.

This allows you to then find the optimum value for the variable you are concerned with.

With practice, the procedures, and processes become easier to use and to set up.

American History

I love history and find American history especially interesting because it is so relevant to the life we live today.

If we look closely, we can see how past events have shaped the world we live in, and we can see how events today might shape the world of the future.

The fascinating thing about history is to imagine what it was really like to live in those times and how it felt to witness those great events.

English

I have read over 2000 books on a variety of subjects, but mostly history, philosophy, science, religion, and the arts. Reading the writings of noteworthy people is a way to improve our thinking and better ourselves. Reading an essay is like having lunch with a famous person from history and listening to them explain their opinions. What better way is there to improve our minds and our ability? How else could we share such distinguished company? As Dennis Wholey said, "We are the same person we were five years ago, except for the people we have met and the books we have read."

Piano

I play piano and have produced 20 albums of original and traditional music. I can sight read fake books and have a good understanding of music theory.

Prealgebra

I have an engineering degree and am very good with Algebra and mathematics.

Pre-Algebra is setting up the concepts and relationships between variables to model real life situations.

Basic math concepts like order of precedence of operators and solving for a variable are explored.

At first it can seem difficult, but with practice it becomes easier to understand.

Video Production

I worked for 25 years in video post production and VFX. I have my own youtube channel with over 160 entries. I am familiar with all phases of video production.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
