About Bill

I graduated from Towson State College in 1972 with a BS in Elementary Education. I taught Special Education and grades 4-6 for more than 30 years in County Public Schools. I strongly believe that learning has to be fun. Teachers should teach students, not subjects. I am a fun person, love children and if you want to have a good time learning, not just your subject, but a little about life, I am the tutor for you. I also believe that if I am working with a student, they have to work with me and put out the effort to improve. Otherwise, tutoring is not going to be of any benefit.

Read, read, read and then do some more reading. It doesn't matter what you read. Just get reading material and try to understand what you are reading. If you do not understand, it may not be your fault. You are unable to understand a concept unless you have your very own experience to compare your understanding. This, in educational jargon is called activating your schema.

As I have said before, if you want to have a good time learning, not realize that you are actually learning, because you are having fun, then I will be able to set up the experience for you. Learning has to be fun. A person will not learn, unless they have some personal reason or desire to learn a particular subject. And I do not teach subjects. I teach students.

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.
