About Bill

Hello my name is Bill. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering, an MBA and a Master of Science Degree in Systems Management. I have been tutoring students for several years and I enjoy helping them to succeed and seeing their faces when they understand something new.

I can quickly understand what a student is having trouble with. After watching the student do a set of problems I determine what they need help with and focus on the areas of difficulty. I follow that up with more problems and review it over time until they master the skill.

I help each student build confidence by achieving small successes. These successes grow into mastery and a real understanding of math. I focus on elementary math through Algebra 1 and preparation for the SAT and ACT.

The students that I have tutored have achieved success and confidence in math. I look forward to helping you increase your confidence and improve your math skills to achieve success in the future.

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.

ACT Math

I have a Harvard MBA, a Master of Science in Systems Management from USC and a BS from West Point. I have extensive experience in math up through Calculus. I am patient with my students. I work with them to help them understand the basics and to build confidence. I can quickly determine where you are having difficulty and explain how to solve problems.

I know that the math on the ACT can be intimidating but once you learn the types of problems on the tests and how to solve them, you can take the test with confidence. I will work with you to methodically teach you each type of problem and how to solve it.

After taking an assessment test, I will develop a plan to teach you the areas where you are having difficulty. This will result in a rapid improvement in your ACT math score.

Algebra 2

Algebra can be intimidating but once you understand the rules and how to apply them in a systematic way it is a matter of solving the problem one step at a time. Using this approach helps students improve their math scores very quickly.
