About William


Bio

My name is Billy. I have an engineering degree and an MBA. I am a published author and member of the Mensa society. After years as an executive in a NYC based, international firm, and a mid-forties semi-retirement, I've turned my attention to helping students excel on the all-important SAT college entrance exam.

While I mention my success first because I believe the overall success of a person should be a key factor considered when hiring a tutor, I also have plenty of experience tutoring...

My name is Billy. I have an engineering degree and an MBA. I am a published author and member of the Mensa society. After years as an executive in a NYC based, international firm, and a mid-forties semi-retirement, I've turned my attention to helping students excel on the all-important SAT college entrance exam.

While I mention my success first because I believe the overall success of a person should be a key factor considered when hiring a tutor, I also have plenty of experience tutoring teenagers. For five years, I volunteered with an organization that helps families in need. My focus was on tutoring high school students in English composition. It was a process of exciting the teenagers about words, showing them how to mold those words into unique sentences, and then teaching them how grammar and vocabulary could make those sentences even better.

I kept my volunteering experience in mind as I prepared to tutor the SAT. First, I had to review, and relearn as necessary, the details of the exam. This I did until I could consistently score, as I did in high school, in the top 1 to 2 percentile. As I studied, I analyzed my approach to studying. This enabled me to create an organized, building block approach similar to the one I used to teach English grammar. This approach will optimize any student's SAT score. Whether starting near the beginning of my plan - learning English grammar and math skills - or nearer the end - mastering the tricky questions and time constraints - I guarantee the success of my system.

Your success (or that of your child) is my goal. Please contact me through the Wyzant website and we will make that success a reality.

I have focused on the SAT Reading because there tends to be a greater need in that area. However, as an engineer graduate, my math skills are excellent and I've carefully reviewed the math sections of the SAT.

I've carefully reviewed the new SAT Writing format and consistently score (last five tests) 740 to 780 on strictly timed practice tests. (780, 770, 780 on the last three). Never nailed a perfect score, but I know exactly why and can explain that too.
