About Bill

I have more than 15 years experience teaching at Columbia University. I have taught math and physics to both science and non-science majors and am confident that I can help students appreciate and understand the beauty of math.

I have tested in the 99 percentile on SAT, GRE, LSAT, and GMAT exams. Many students do not like standardized tests but with the proper training and practice I can help any student improve his scores on standardized tests.

I have multiple years of college prep and college counseling experience - placing many kids into top ten colleges. I will provide guidance for students in all aspects of their preparation for college - including advise on courses, extracurricular activities, volunteer work, test preparation, essay preparation, etc. so that they can get into a college that suits their interests and talents.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chess

I have played chess since 10 and achieve USCF rating of 1800. I have taught chess and many other board games to many students. I believe that chess, bridge and other board games help students learn how to think, compete, and solve problems in a fun way.

College Counseling

I have worked as an Educational Counselor for MIT for 3 years. During that time I interviewed dozens of students for admissions and counseled them as to what they need to do get into elite colleges in the country.

MCAT

I have tutored many students in the math, science, and verbal skills required to succeed in the MCAT and other standardized tests. I have also tutored many students on improving their study habits and how to prepare for standardized tests. I have gone through a couple of full sample MCAT tests and achieved better than 90% scores on all sections of these tests.

Microsoft Access

I have worked with MS Access for over a dozen years. I have created and maintained dozens of MS Access database applications in those years. I have managed and taught a group of programmers that provided database support for thousands of employees.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used all versions of MS Outlook since 1995. I have adapted MS Outlook for many desktop and web users. I have taught MS Office suite of applications to many students over the last two decades.
