About Billie


Bio

I am a UCI honors graduate in mathematics with a minor in computer science. I started tutoring as a favor for a friend and have found that tutoring is one of the most rewarding experiences I can have. Many of my students have gone from D's with no understanding to A's with the ability to peer tutor their classmates. It is always wonderful to enter a student's home and hear "I got an A on the test!" or "the teacher says I am her most improved student."

I started tutoring as a favor for a friend and have found that tutoring is one of the most rewarding experiences I can have.

It is always wonderful to enter a student's home and hear "I got an A on the test!" or "the teacher says I am her most improved student."

I look for the concepts that students may not have totally grasped and help them get up to speed so that future classes are easy and fun. Most of my students continue to call me back on an "as needed" basis when they don't understand some one concept in class, even in college. I frequently am recommended by parents to friends and family members.

Precalculus,

Precalculus

In my opinion, Pre-Calculus is the most difficult math class offered at the high school level. The trigonometry portion presents many new and difficult concepts, but the algebra portion takes everything from Algebra II deeper making everything very complex and solving problems you don't really see any reason to solve. In truth, the main objective is to solidify your Algebra skills. Most of the problems that are presented are much more easily solved in Calculus next year.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

There are several easy things that you can do to help your SAT math score. Knowing the Pythagorean triples will make several problems easier. Understanding basic Geometry, the formulas, and principles are also helpful. Using a book to learn the types of problems is good, memorizing the specific problems is not. Once you know which problems you are having problems with, it is important to learn how to solve all similar problems. The books are always easier than the test.

Excellent teacher, knowledgeable and patient.

Billie helped explain formulas so I could understand how to solve them. She was knowledgeable on various math concepts and was able to help with word problem. Very patient and good at explaining. I would definitely recommend her to anybody.

Patient and knowledgeable tutor.

My daughter was happy and immediately had more confidence with her trig. This was only after the first lesson, which gave me the confidence to schedule another one.

Good Tutor

Billie has a good knowledge of her subject. She also understands what is it that is causes the most problems for her students. She has a clear idea of where my son needs the most help. Her approach is patient and quiet.

Billie is great.

Billie has been working with my son for almost 2 months now. She talks to him and questions him to ascertain what he is struggling with. His algebra grade is going up steadily now. And the fact that Billie can come to our home to do the tutoring sessions is amazing. My schedule varies every week and I cannot commit to driving him to lessons. The fact that she comes to our house is a Godsend.

Excellent Experience!

Billie has helped me a ton in my AP Calculus class. She had a thorough understanding of every concept I needed help on and she is very pleasant. I highly recommend her.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Billie has been working with Gargi for over a month now and we already see an improvement in grades. Gargi has scored well in her last test. Billie works patiently with her and Gargi likes to work with her.

Knows Trigonometry inside and out!

Billie helped me understand the Unit Circle Method of Trigonometry. She was able to teach and illustrate examples to make it easy for me to grasp. I recommend Billie for her knowledge of Trig and the ability to teach in a way that it is easy to understand.

Best tutor we have found through Wyzant!

In a way, we hate to let people know how good she is because then we have to share her. She is fantastic.

Great Tutor - Highly Recommend!

My daughter was a senior at a private Catholic High School last year, enrolled in Pre-Calculus. We had a teacher who was very new to teaching and caused the class to be a disaster for the students. About mid-year, after many conferences with the school, it was determined that my daughter needed a tutor to get through this class! We found Billy and my daughter's life changed! The stress went down to almost nothing, her grades came back up and she became one of the best students in the class - because Billy was now her teacher! I can't say enough about Billy - she is patient, caring and very, very good at teaching math courses. With her calm and patient demeanor, she helps the students get in touch with what they know and build confidence. In watching Billy tutor my daughter, she really helped build her confidence back up and reduce the stress she was feeling so she could think and relax as she was working on her math. Whether you child is taking a high level class like pre-calc or calculus or a lower level math class and your child is younger, I highly recommend Billy. Thank you Billy!! Big hugs from our family!
