Although I am new to WyzAnt, I have been tutoring students in all areas of math, physics, astronomy and photography for over 20 years.

While teaching Physics in Graduate School, I quickly realized that every student learns and is able to absorb information in a different way.

Although I am new to WyzAnt, I have been tutoring students in all areas of math, physics, astronomy and photography for over 20 years.

While teaching Physics in Graduate School, I quickly realized that every student learns and is able to absorb information in a different way. I found that most students who struggled to comprehend my lessons in the classroom would inevitably understand the subject matter once we had one on one time during office hours. I needed that time to discover the disconnect between the lesson and how it was perceived and interpreted by the individual student.

To this end, tutoring has been a way for me to help students who have difficulty dealing with the cookie cutter approach to teaching that occurs in many school systems. One on one time with a student allows me to gauge how they retain or understand the material. I can adjust my delivery to suit each individual learning style for maximum benefit.

I will work with the student to find a location that allows the best environment for learning. I am very flexible with scheduling and although I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, I will allow rescheduling.

I have taught math classes in preparation for the ACT, SAT and GRE test since leaving graduate school as well as tutored students from Middle School to Undergraduate University level. I worked for 13+ years in the Semiconductor industry and continually trained and taught high level math to new employees and coworkers.

I have a Bachelor's and Master's in Physics with an emphasis in Astronomy and Astrophysics. During graduate school, I taught multiple undergraduate physics classes as well as tutored 5-10 students per quarter.

After 13+ years, I left the semiconductor industry to pursue a career in photography. Overlapping with my engineering career and continuing to consult for analytical laboratories afterward, I have been a professional stock photographer for the last 17 years. I have led instruction in all areas of the photography field over the last 10 years.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or want to discuss times and availability. Thank you.

Astronomy

I have a Bachelor's and Master's in Physics with an emphasis in Astronomy and Astrophysics. During graduate school, I taught undergraduate classes in experimental and theorethical physics. I tutored 5-10 students per quarter while in graduate school and have continued to pursue my passion for astronomy and astrophysics. I feel I have the ability to explain the very complex concepts in astrophysical study to anyone on a level that can be learned and absorbed.

Excellent tutor

Bill knows how to present concepts in a way anyone can comprehend. Got more out of my two hour session than I did in two days of instruction in class.
