About Bill


Bio

I'm the Math teacher you always wanted.

As a former math teacher I committed long age to finding a way to explain a concept that my student could understand. I get back to what makes sense to a student and then build from there. I do all of this with a sense of humor and a smile!

Slow down, it really is easy. Once we establish the base building on it is fun. My preference it to meet online. It is an incredibly powerful environment.

Study Skills

I learned study skills over time from experience as a student, teacher and business professional. I enhanced these skills by taking and teaching classes on the subject. Tutoring in this area is a logical extension of this work. I find it very gratifying to be a part of a student's continued success.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have both tutored individuals and been a classroom teacher for Algebra. It is a favorite subject of mine. Having fun and using real world examples are just a couple of my strengths.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have tutored Algebra II for years. The subject is a challenge for many students. we will reinforce Algebra I subject matter and build knowledge. Fun and learning is what we do. In College Algebra? I'm the person you are looking for.

I was truly lucky to have a teacher who made Geometry real, I do that now for my students. We work hard, and have fun, as we discuss current topics.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

What a great subject!! The basis for years to come. I am experienced teaching this subject both in a classroom and 1 to 1 and have excellent skills explaining the subject in terms a student 'gets'.

Precalculus is a critical point for most students looking for more advanced studies. It doesn't matter if you're in high school or college we will approach the subjects with both fun, clarity and rigor.

SAT Math

Standardized testing has always been a strength of mine. We will talk about strategy, when to guess and when not to guess, trust your instincts, and my 7 rules of test taking. Part of test taking success comes with feeling prepared. We can work on that.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

Sometimes when you are studying Trig you wonder, "How did someone come up with this?" Well that's part of the joy of the subject. Although I have been very successful tutoring trig I felt a need to refresh the concepts in my mind. So I enrolled in, and completed, a review.

As a math guy, science has always been a big draw for me, especially the physical sciences. It is such a clear look at the relationships between the forces at work in our world. An adventure in exploration!!

ASVAB

I have tutored, both in person and online, in a number of subject areas. My strong suit is math but I have covered the full range of subjects included on the ASVAB exam. Most people that need help with the exam are either very good in some areas and not so strong in others or have 'test anxiety.' We will work on both.

Praxis,

Praxis

As a teacher I assisted coworkers who were using the Praxis exam to add mathematics to the list of subjects they could teach. Our approach will start with a Study Companion and use it as our base for planning a strategy to be successful on the test. Much of the training will be crossover from other test taking skills I have developed.

Katelyn, 6 lessons with Bill

Excellent Tutor

Our 13 year old son came out of the online lesson cheerfully and smiling. This teacher does an awesome job because what’s better than making a kid coming from hard work with a smile and in a good mood?

Christine, 3 lessons with Bill

knowledgeable and patient turtor

This was the first session - My son really like s how Bill teaches. We have more sessions to come and I'm positive this will have a good outcome.

Ryan, 3 lessons with Bill

Algebra 1

He taught my son Elimination. Bill was extremely patient and helped my son learn the concept of Elimination. I highly recommend Bill for tutoring any area of math.

Kurt, 2 lessons with Bill

Expert tutor with tons of patience

I was pressed for time on an exam regarding verifying Trigonometric Identities. Considering I only had 2 days Bill was very excellent at covering the key points and then breaking them down in a very easy to understand manner. Without his help I would have surely bombed the exam but when I went to take it I was not stumped at all. I will be going back to Bill for tutoring for the remaining school year to stay ahead and not be left cramming. I can only imagine what the results could be staying much further ahead.

John, 13 lessons with Bill

Excellent teacher, very helpful!

My son was beaming after his first session with Bill because he found him to be so helpful. Cannot recommend him enough!

Audra, 13 lessons with Bill

Extremely helpful and patient!

My daughter was very happy with him. Thank you. I believe he is very calm and doesn’t rush through. She loved how he took time to explain everything she needed even more.
