About Bill

I can help guide you through problems, to help you build your skill and confidence.

I am a semi-retired physicist, 50 years old, with 20 years of experience as a Los Alamos scientist and biophysicist. I have recent experience tutoring all levels from high school to graduate students! All positive feedback! I also have a bachelor's degree in mathematics from MIT.

Einstein said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." Physics is not so much about knowledge, it's about insight.

Advanced subjects include: Mechanics, Electro-Magnetism, Statistical Mechanics, Quantum mechanics, Relativity theory, Introductory Physics, Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Vector Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, General Physics, General Statistics.

I have published dozens of papers, with a total of over 2000 citations. I have served as an advisor to the World Health Organization in Geneva and as a participant in an international expert panel convened by the Electric Power Research Institute in Palo Alto, California.

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.

ACT Math

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics. I scored a perfect 5 on the AP calculus test. I have tutored high school students in math. I tutored at MIT and Berkeley.

Algebra 1

I graduated from high school second in my class, and math was one of my best subjects. I then got a bachelor's degree in math from M.I.T.

Algebra 2

I have a B.S. in Math from M.I.T. I studied two semesters of linear algebra at MIT. I scored a perfect 800 on the math SAT. I have tutoring experience.

Calculus

I was top of my class in high school calculus, scored a 5 (the highest possible) on the calculus ACT, hold a math degree from M.I.T., and studied vector calculus and physics.

Geometry

My entrance essay to MIT was about geometry. I have a degree in Math from MIT. I have experience tutoring in math.

Linear Algebra

I took 2 semesters of linear algebra at MIT. I have published papers that make use of linear algebra, including one with John Pearson in PNAS. I tutored students at MIT and Berkeley.

Physics

I have a Ph.D. in physics, have taught introductory physics, and tutored physics at M.I.T.

Precalculus

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics. I took calculus in high school. I got a perfect score of 800 on the math SAT. I tutored students at MIT and Berkeley.

SAT Math

I scored a perfect 800 on the math SAT back when I took it. I have worked with students at all levels from elementary school to graduate school.

Statistics

I did well in one statistics course at MIT, and have since written papers with PhD statisticians, and have done statistics research. I am strong in the fundamentals, but my knowledge will be spotty for any advanced statistics courses.

Extensive Knowledge of College ME Dynamics

Bill has a very extensive knowledge of physics and calculus. He was able to identify my weaknesses and help me improve upon them. He may not hand you the answer right away but instead will push you to use the knowledge you have and assist you in applying it to problems. Even on the most difficult of problems he is able to clearly identify and assist you with both the strategy and execution of the
