I am Master student in Public Health with a background in Biochemistry and minor in both philosophy and chemistry (University of Miami) and a bachelor degree in Frontiers of Life Science in France (Paris). So I am comfortable to teach both in English and French. I enjoy playing soccer, tennis and enjoy listening to music. I am outgoing, down to earth and easy to connect to.
Well, I have been a tutor for quite a while now. I love tutoring, making very difficult subjects easy to understand. I break them down in ways that build confidence with every problem solved. As with any new material learned, you have to get yourself involved with it. It would be really helpful if you keep your mind open and try to eliminate any doubtful and negative thoughts. I use different methods to teach material, based on the content of the subject that we are working on and the student's style of learning. I believe that if you can see it, you can imagine it, and later on you can use it. It is really important to make connections with whatever you are learning with how they are commonly used on an everyday basis. That’s why I do not teach based on memorization. Rather, I make you sure you understand the subject and are able to use it later on. We will be learning some basic skills that will be useful to help you solve problems that you haven't covered.
Math is all about repetition: the more you practice, the better you will understand. If you put the effort into learning the material, with my help you will be doing math in no time.
My ultimate goal is to make math and science more comprehensible and hopefully increase the number of student later on who goes to focus in a career in math and science. The career of the future.
I had a student tell me that I make math sound easy and fun. I hope the experience will be the same for you!

Patient and efficient
Billy tutored my 10th-grade daughter in chemistry over a two-week period prior to her final exam. She did very well, even though she had been struggling. He helped her focus and hone in on the main topics by paying attention to her exam outline and her overall curriculum. He was efficient with the time we had. He is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about chemistry and at the same time quite laid back, which is a good combination for teaching what some consider a difficult, stressful subject.Jordana, 3 lessons with Billy
Billy was tutoring my son who is in an Honor's College. Billy was always punctual, courteous and very knowledgeable on the subject my son needed help with. Billy is a highly educated and responsible young man and it was clearly evident that he enjoys what he does and has a "knack" for helping others. Billy was able to bring light to a subject my son was having difficulty understanding and my son ended up receiving one of the highest grades in that class. Thank you Billy for doing what you do and keep up the good work! My son and I both thank and appreciate you.Haydee, 11 lessons with Billy
Made the impossible possible
Billy, Thank you so much for all your help. The material was very difficult, but you helped me to get one of the highest grades in the class. Most of the students failed the test- so this speaks volumes for what you did for me. Thanks again.David, 9 lessons with Billy

Excellent tutor, outstanding service!
At the least minute before leaving on a trip overseas, we contacted Billy who agreed to give biology classes on Skype to our daughter who is in 9th grade. Billy is an outstanding tutor and it worked perfectly. Billy really knows his subject and was able to give many details and examples on each specific point of the chapter. This really helped my daughter to understand and remember the lessons. Even back in Miami, since our house is quite far from Billy’s, we will continue to use the Skype method because it worked so well. Thank you Billy!Clotilde, 10 lessons with Billy
The value of tutors
I was recently on a trip to Miami with my teenage daughter for 2 weeks. When I wasn't able to help her with algebra, I turned to tutoring. I explained to Billy that we were only in town for a short time and that we really needed some help. He came over that night. He was prompt, professional and it helped tremendously. When she returned to school and met with her teacher to review her work, everything was perfect. Her teacher said we were very smart to get a tutor. Thank you Billy.Donna, 2 lessons with Billy
We brought Billy in to work with our 13 year old 8th grade son for math. From the first session, we have been very pleased with Billy's ability, his easy going attitude and his way of relating to my son. Billy is punctual, efficient with the time and polite I highly recommend him and think this the best use of resource and money for any parent looking to give their kids the opportunity to improve their grades and their confidence. Thank you Billy.Rachel, 4 lessons with Billy
Exceptional Tutor with reasonable fees
Billy has been tutoring my 13 year old son since Feb of this year and I must say he's a great tutor. My son looks forward to his session and raves about how much he enjoys them. My son has expressed that learning with Billy is fun and that he makes learning easy, he will also go over the material more than once if needed to make sure that he's understanding the math concepts. Even my son's math teacher noticed a different in him, I remember her saying to keep the tutoring session up because my son went from disrupting the class to actively participating. She also noticed that he had begun to understand the math lesson. Anyone in need of a tutor should definitely consider Billy, his fees are reasonable and he's always on time for his sessions.Mashonda, 16 lessons with Billy
Billy ,my great math teacher
Billy is great! I really improved a lot, very worthy :) I kind of like math now; it's not so scary anymore.Sophia, 5 lessons with Billy
Billy is a fantastic tutor! I took some private classes at UM library over the summer in organic chemistry and it really helped me relax for an intense year at Northwestern University. He is very helpful and really understands the subject well. He cares about what he does and it is easy to understand him also. Good luck Billy!Sari, 2 lessons with Billy
