About Bill

Hi,

My name is Bill and let me take a few moments to give you a little background on myself and my experience.

I am a former executive manager who spent twenty years in local government. I have an extensive knowledge of both government and politics. I have given instruction in both the medical and law enforcement fields. I have had the opportunity to work with young people in community organizations and have learn the best methods to communicate with them.

My method of teaching is a give and take with lots of discussion and debate. It allows for students to get a true feel for the subject matter. When a student feels someone is truly listening to them and cares they tend to be more free with there concerns and will openly admit there problem areas with this type of information it allows me to make the learning experience much more enjoyable.

I have spent my life in front of the public or public service if not on a one to one basis then in front of the them speaking. The fine art of public speaking is not the statement but its presentation to the public and your ability to get your message to them.

My easy going manner relaxes students and puts them in a "can do" frame of mine which gives them more confidence in themselves.

As to my baseball ability, I have coached the game for over twenty years and brought home to my local community three district championships, two sectionals and a trip to our state finals. The art of baseball is not about power but understanding the raw talents and learning to use them to your best in the game. Basic baseball leads to good players - learning the points of the game and using your ability makes you a winner.

I have a strong love for government and enjoyed working in it for twenty years, that coupled with a great pride in our history allows for me to work with a student to ensure that they clearly understand the subject matter.

I hope this gives you an overview of what I can "bring to the table" to you for yourself or your child.

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.

Baseball

I have coached baseball for twenty years to age levels 10 through 17. I have coached clinics for Little League baseball. I have seven years of All-Star manager/coaching experience and won 3 district Championships, one sectional and earn one trip to the state finals. I am a certified umpire and have umpired for ten years. My basic coaching style is to ensure that each player learns the basics of the game both on the field and the game plan. I instruct players in hitting, pitching, fielding and the game itself.

Criminal Justice

I served as a Special Patrolman for the City of New York with full Peace Officer Powers. I was also an Instructor of the Peace Officer Program with the New York State Municipal Peace officer course. As a Special Patrolman I performed patrol duties within a geographical area that included a housing project and normal street patrol. I learned the criminal justice system first hand. I also served in the military as a member of the Staff Judge Advocates Office as a Legal Clerk assigned to both the Prosecutors Office and then later the defense office. I've prepared cases for trail, witness questioning and study of individual laws and defenses. I have appeared in both military and civilian courts.

Public Speaking

I spent twenty years in government, part of that as an elected official and most as a executive manager of local government. I have spent those years speaking to the general public on all issues and getting my points to them, whether through debate or Q&A.
