About Bill

I have taught at the college and University level for 20 years. I have experience with algebra and calculus-based introductory physics courses, honors physics and modern physics. I have taught at a residential high school for the past five years.

I enjoy hands-on cooperative learning activities with Physics. Relating concepts to real-world applications exposes students to connections between the classroom and their everyday lives. I particularly enjoy developing an understanding of a student's strengths and skills in problem solving. Physics is particularly unique in High School courses because success relies on language skills (word problems), algebra/calculus, trigonometry, geometry, abstract reasoning and disciplined problem solving. I try to guide students to make connections between different "blocks" of course material and to see the myriad applications of core concepts.

I am very experienced in teaching physics. I enjoy helping students develop their skills and understanding of diverse concepts so that they can communicate it to others and demonstrate it on assessments.

I look forward to meeting you and to getting you on track for success in your pursuit of knowledge.

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.

Physics

I have a doctorate in Physics. I have taught at the college and University level for 20 years, and at the high school level for five. I enjoy sharing the learning of physics with students as a guide for their mastery of the subject rather than serving only as a source of knowledge.

Trigonometry

I have an undergraduate degree in mathematics. I have tutored physics to undergraduates for decades: physics requires trigonometry in many applications. In addition, the mathematics of quantum mechanics extensively used trig.

My daughter was tutored by Bill for only 2 hours and obtained a better understanding of the topics and he went above and beyond what sh3 needed to cover. She did extremely well on her physics test that week. Highly recommend. Thank you Bill for your expertise.
