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 tutor for Pre-Calc & Calculus!

Bill has been a great tutor for both my sons in pre-calc & calculus. According to them, he was very good at explaining the problems and methods in a way that they could easily understand. He also gave very good tips for test-taking and how to determine what the problems were asking.

Extremely thorough and knowledgeable

After one session with Bill, my daughter feels much more confident in tackling concepts that were daunting to her previously. He was very organized, and addressed her weakest areas immediately. His tips and tricks for approaching complicated math problems were exactly what she needed.

Excellent Trig tutor

Bill is the best math tutor on Wyzant. He is consistently helpful and understanding. Truly directs my kids to comprehend what they’re looking at. Both my kids enjoy their sessions with him which shows his versatility and knowledge in various levels of math as they’re in different grades in High school, my daughter in 9th [algebra]and my son in 11th[trig]. We truly wouldn’t have gotten through the year without Bill and I am positive we’ll keep utilizing him into college level mathematics. He’s truly the best tutor we have used and we have tried many.

excellent communicator

My 17 year old son has nothing but good things to say after his sessions with Bill! He has a gift for teaching math in an applicable and relatable way! Thank you!!!

Excellent Trig tutor

Bill is the greatest tutor! He’s so knowledgeable in all levels of math and tutors two of my three teenagers. His knowledge of mathematics is amazing but his best attribute is how he connects with his students. He’s extremely patient and relatable. My 17 yo old son has ADD but Bill never loses patience with him while tutoring Trigonometry. We’ve tried numerous math tutors on Wyzant and Bill is by far the best. He’s an absolute treasure and huge asset to the Wyzant community.

Helped my son understand precalc

Bill tutored my son in precalc that he was struggling in. After his lesson my son came out and said that Bill explained the material in a way that he could understand. We will definitely be working with him again. I highly recommend him.

Great teacher, very engaging

My daughter though Bill was excellent at explaining the material and engaging her. He had energy, which she appreciated! We will definitely use him again.

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!
