About William

I am a retired Math teacher who has taught in regular and Special Needs classrooms. I have a B.A. in Math and Psych from Boston College. Later, I received a M.Ed. in Special Needs and taught Math in the Public Schools and Special Needs Private Schools. I have taught at the Community College Level and University Level (" Math for People Who Hate Math"). I have observed that students who have a LD problem or who do poorly in Math get discouraged and give up. I help them have more success by making it more practical to them.
I am also a high school Varsity Tennis Coach and can coach several sports. Finally, I can also tutor students in Psychology at high school and college level.

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.

ADHD

I have an M.Ed. in Special Needs from Boston College. I taught ADD/ADHD students for 10 years in schools and in their homes. I know that they are easily distracted and hyperactive. They need a structured approach.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I was a Spec. Needs teacher with Autistic students. Then I received a CAGS(M&36) and became a School Psychologist. I evaluated students on the spectrum and gave a Psych Report at the Team meeting. I would recommend the educational plan for the student( tutoring, therapy,social skills training, etc.)

College Counseling

I am a college professor in Psychology. I do college counseling by helping students transfer to a different college or change their major. Sometimes students don't know what to major in. They don't know what they want to do as a career. I do vocational counseling with them. Many students don't know what colleges to go to for specific majors. Lastly, it is a big decision about to go to a big school or a small college (a 4 year school or a Jr College and then transfer). In a few cases, students feel homesick and want to come home. Many freshmen feel overwhelmed and do poorly in school. They may need counseling.

Dyslexia

I have an M.Ed. in Special Education. I am a retired Special Needs Teacher. I have taught many students with Dyslexia and Reading Comprehension problems.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored students at the Elementary Level in a Resource Room and in the Regular classroom. I was a Spec. Needs tutor with students who were below grade level in Math,Reading, Reading Comprehension, and Spelling. I have a M.Ed. in Special Education.

Psychology

I have taught 10 Psychology classes at the college level.I have taught Intro. to Psych. 5 times. I have taught Comm. Psych, Abnormal Psych, and Adol. Psych. also.

Special Needs

I am a retired Spec. Ed teacher. I have a M.Ed. in Special Education from Boston College. I have 10 years experience working with D.D., LD, and other Special Needs students.

Study Skills

I have a M.Ed. in Special Ed. I have tutored many students with study skills problems in the regular classroom and resource room. I help them get organized(write down their assignments in their agenda). Then, we work on the homework and most importantly pass it in.

Tennis

I have 20 years' experience coaching tennis at the high school level. I presently coach at Canton HS. I have been Boston Globe Tennis Coach of the year. I teach tennis privately, play and umpire tennis professionally.

Great Experience

I needed to hire a tutor for my daughter to do her AP work before school startsd. She has some issues like ADHD and OCD but she was extremely bright. H e was really good at assessing what her needs were very quickly. We had a great experience with him and my daughter felt immediately comfortable with him which was a hug plus!
