About William

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I have taught math classes in preparation for the ACT, SAT and GRE test since leaving graduate school 19 years ago as well as tutored students from Middle School to Undergraduate University level. 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.

Algebra 1

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.

Algebra 2

I have a deep understanding of algebra and can help explain complex ideas in a concise and clear way that meets the needs of any learning style. 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.

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.

Photography

I have been a professional photographer since 1997. I have worked as a wedding, portrait, sports, motosport, product and stock photographer. I currently submit to multiple agencies in New, York, London, Barcelona and Calgary.

Prealgebra

I have tutored students in prealgebra and algebra for over 20 years. I have a Bachelor's and Master's in Physics which has given me a deep understanding of mathematical concepts as well as real world applications used in teaching prealgebra to students new to the subject. During graduate school, I taught multiple undergraduate classes that required a solid background in math as well as tutored 5-10 students per quarter.

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.
