Hi, Everyone,

I am a recently retired senior engineering physicist who worked at a national laboratory. I have a Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics from the State University of New York-Stony Brook. During my working years I enjoyed interacting with students and other groups visiting our laboratory as well as participating in online physics forums with middle-school and high-school students. I've also been a middle-school science fair judge at local and regional levels for more than twenty years.

I enjoyed these activities so much, in fact, that about ten years ago I decided to broaden my education outreach efforts and start tutoring, focusing mainly on physics and math, including AP Physics and AP Calculus. My goals are to improve each student's conceptual understanding of a subject along with his/her specific problem-solving skills. Because of my background and experience, I also believe that I can help make a connection between those seemingly mundane homework problems at the end of each chapter in a textbook and the "real world".

I would be pleased to work with individual students ranging from middle-school through college undergraduates as well as small groups of students. I look forward to meeting you and discussing your tutoring needs.

Bill F.

Great Lesson

Great lesson - Bill takes his time and explains concepts. He has the ability to connect with his students - he is an exceptional teacher and tutor.

Frank, 47 lessons with Bill

Thorough and concise

Bill works with my son making sure he understands concepts and ideas before moving on. He has also gone above his lesson time following up with problems that have come up during the session.

Anonymous, 14 lessons with Bill

Knowledgeable, Patient, Positive, and Extremely Helpful

The best tutoring experience. Bill helps you learn topics at YOUR speed, is always open for questions, and makes sure you know the material before the session ends. Very welcoming and positive attitude. Very knowledgeable about not only equations or specific questions, but can explain overarching topics extremely well, true professional. Helped me get through undergraduate algebra based Physics 2.

Evan, 31 lessons with Bill

very accommodating on short notice

Helped my son with factoring. My son said the session was great. Very accommodating on short notice.

Megan, 1 lesson with Bill

Rescue tutor!

Bill helped my high school senior with Physics as she approached her finals. She had been struggling for a while and just couldn’t dig out of it by herself. Bill responded quickly to my request and after meeting my daughter, he promptly identified the problem and helped her feel prepared for her final. Thank you so much!

Amy (Parent), 1 lesson with Bill

Helped my daughter with AP Physics C

She was struggling in her class, and Bill helped her understand her homework and material for upcoming test. Given the difficulty of this class, it is nice to have a good tutor for it.

Laura, 3 lessons with Bill

Patient and explains content well.

Answered questions thoroughly and helpfully. Clarified material that was not clear and reinforced content emphasized in class. Only first class session!

Linda, 8 lessons with Bill

Great tutor.

Great tutor. He responds back immediately. He is a good tutor for math, physics and also has a specialty in radiation physics. He explains concepts well and is a patient tutor.

Elaine, 5 lessons with Bill

Patient, helpful, responds quickly.

Bill is a great tutor. He's very good at explaining concepts and working through problems making sure that you understand every step. He's very patient and friendly and is also quick to respond by phone. I highly recommend Bill as a tutor.
