About Bill


Bio

After having worked 30 years as an engineer for major aerospace firms, I have recently decided to retire. I can now pursue the things I like to do. One of things I like to do is to tutor.

I love working with people, especially when they see significant improvement because of my help. I have been successfully tutoring the last six years and have helped many people along the way.

Excellent Experience!

Bill was so knowledgeable, helpful and patient with me. I am very new to Java and he took the time to clearly explain the assignment and answer my many questions. I will definitely work with him again!

Bill is an excellent tutor for C++, he explained the material, prompted and challenged me with developing the logic, and most importantly he walked me through the steps of writing the code.

Great Teacher

Bill was awesome! He help me find my mistakes on my java code, and was of great help on my java course. Definitely going to get more help with him.

Highly Recommended

We tackled a few PERL techniques that in and of themselves were not difficult. However, Bill's approach to solving the problem was highly instructional; by sharing his experience with me I learned new ways to handle general problem solving, which will help me write cleaner code in the future. I would work him again without hesitation.
