About Bill

Greetings,

I graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a degree in secondary education for mathematics. I have taken several upper level math courses that include: Calculus 1-3, Introduction to Proofs, Axiomatic Geometry, Precalculus, Algebra 1-2, Trigonometry, Geometry, linear algebra, absract algebra, foundations of analyis, intermediate analysis. I developed an affinity for math when taking Calculus in High School. My teacher really inspired me and made me realize that math did not have to be as dry and boring as it is often perceived to be.

My education courses in college have made me aware of and interested in many different styles of learning and I am interested in developing my own teaching style that revolves around activities rather than the traditional lecture homework style. My interest is in teaching the concepts rather than strictly the material. I believe that learning comes most naturally when you're having fun, and my goal is to make math a fun learning experience. This is certainly not to say that I won't assist in understanding homework assignments, but I feel that a broader understanding can be developed by branching off and covering the material from different perspectives of thought.

I have experience tutoring high school and college students and through the military where I have successfully taught electronics and ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) preparation (where a 70% or higher in electronics and mathematics was needed to qualify for the chosen career field). Personally, I scored in the 90th percentile in every subject of the ASVAB, and I scored top of the class in every military course I have taken including receiving Honor Graduate in Basic Training.

I have tutored over 100+ hours through wyzant and have learned a great deal of things during that time. I prefer to tutor in public locations since many students are much more focused when they are in an environment away from the comfort and distraction of their homes. However, I will do home visits as well since I understand it may fit some students better to be tutored from home. I am also available with additional times for online tutoring, the times that I have listed available are for in person tutoring.

Feel free to ask any questions.

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.

Algebra 2

I have tutored multiple students in algebra 2 in preparation for Regents exams and have taken many proof classes in college exploring the fundamentals of algebra.

Regents

I have successfully tutored numerous students in preparation for the Common Core algebra 1, geometry, and algebra 2 Regents exams. I have also prepared students for the Regents exams while student teaching in Kingston high school.
