About Bill


Bio

Greetings,

Let me start by saying, that although I am a certified teacher, I do not teach in a classroom and I do not wish to. By being a professional tutor and tutoring for as long as I have, I have been able to learn so many techniques for solving the same types of problems. This allows me to be able to adapt my instruction in order to effectively teach you in a one-on-one setting, no matter your personal learning style.

I graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a degree in secondary education...

Greetings,

Let me start by saying, that although I am a certified teacher, I do not teach in a classroom and I do not wish to. By being a professional tutor and tutoring for as long as I have, I have been able to learn so many techniques for solving the same types of problems. This allows me to be able to adapt my instruction in order to effectively teach you in a one-on-one setting, no matter your personal learning style.

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, Algebra 1-2, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Foundations of Analysis, and 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 will always adapt my lessons to suit your needs. I believe that learning comes most naturally when you're having fun, and my goal is to make math a fun learning experience.

Feel free to ask any questions.

Excellent Trig tutor

Bill is the best tutor on Wyzant, always helps my teens understand their levels of math. He breaks down concepts and teaches in ways that get through to the student. We have used him for my 9th grader in Algebra and my 11th grader in Trigonometry many times. I have hired various math tutors on Wyzant and out of all of them he is the best by far.

Knowledgable tutor

Bill went over a few problems with me that I didn't understand. He also went over some problems that were going to be on my next quiz. He taught me a trick about factoring. I would use him again.

Game changer for my son

Bill continues to be the game changer in my son’s Algebra class. My 7th grader was so close to dropping out of the highly capable program during virtual learning. I begged him to try two weeks of tutoring and if he was still not understanding I would let him drop hi-cap math. Ever since then my son has been doing weekly sessions will Bill and my son’s understanding of content has gone from nothing to being able to held his friends through problems after a session with Bill. A half an hour of tutoring = a week of virtual learning with his teacher. We will definitely be continuing tutoring throughout this year and for years to come!

Math magician

My son loved his first session with Bill. He felt like all of his questions were addressed. He has a plan for moving forward with his studies and he learned some great tricks for being more efficient with problem solving. Just what we hoped for.

Excellent Trig tutor

We have been using bill on a consistent basis for in the past month. I have tried several trigonometry tutors on Wyzant and they were OK but no one broke through to my sons understanding of the concepts as well as Bill. He has a way of explaining trigonometry that makes sense to my son and to me that’s everything. Bill is extremely effective and uses the time efficiently. He has become our “go to” trigonometry tutor and he always fits us into his busy schedule.

Excellent Trig tutor

We used Bill for first time today and my 17yo son said he was the best Trig tutor we’ve used on Wyzant. They got through the chapter test review in one session and Bill left me an email with detailed feedback on progress. Very impressed and will be scheduling additional sessions going forward.

Very patient and knowledgeable

Bill has done a great job w my son. He is tutoring him in honors trig and pre cal. Like any kid, my son doesn’t like having to get a tutor but after His 1st session he is smiling and actually looks more confident. Him having confidence in an area that he is struggling in, makes me feel good as a parent that I made the right decision to get Bill to help him. Only 2 sessions and it’s a huge improvement. Some people just have a way with teaching.

Algebra

Bill was very helpful and flexible in helping my son with his intensive online algebra summer school class. My son was really struggling and neededblittle extra help.

Catherine, 2 lessons with Bill

Extremely helpful

My son was amazed at how well Bill explained each problem until he was able to do it on his own. One hour and an entire unit was completed! As a mom, I am grateful he is our son’s tutor. A big sigh of relief that we’re going to get through this semester!
