About Bill

I am passionate about teaching math and science to children & young adults. I was on the adjunct faculty at Purdue University, Northwestern University and Illinois Institute of Technology. I retired a few years ago as a scientist in a research lab and have tutored many students on a volunteer basis privately and for the City of Carlsbad. As an example, I tutored one 12-year-old recently in pre-algebra, and he moved up from a C+ grade to an A grade in just two months. I enjoy working with children and young adults, and get a lot of satisfaction from helping them learn. I would like to keep busy with tutoring, so try me out - you won't be disappointed!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I hold a Ph.D. in Materials Science and am very comfortable with tutoring any STEM subject.
