“**Excellent tutor!**”

Hello,

I have been a college math instructor for more than 15 years (twice named Teacher of the Year by the student government association.) During this time, I have also been a professional tutor in my school's Learning Center. While I enjoy the challenge of classroom teaching, I have found that students often benefit most from the

William is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message William to get started.

William is a great tutor! He Takes the time to explain the material to you (so you thoroughly understand the material). He is very professional and prepares well for your session. Best tutor you could get for math!

Take a session with him, you will not be disappointed!

Thank You William for helping improve my grade in Calculus. I now have a better understanding of the subject matter. You were able to simplify the problems which gave me confidence and less anxiety when taking a test. I will continue to use your services as long as I need to, Thank You again.

Was able to grasp quickly where student was at and explained the reason behind math concepts. Professional and made both student and I feel at ease.

William helped me understand some of the concepts behind the central limit theorem in addition to providing simple tips to distinguish between population and sample proportion in word problems. He also helped me with my technique which saved me a tremendous amount of time in regard to completing my work. He did all of this in small amount of time. He's definitely a worth while tutor.

Excellent communication skills and his explanations were very clear and easy to understand. Look forward to working with him again.

He is so helpful! He goes the extra mile to help me understand math. Has tons of patience!

My first lesson was mainly review to prepare for the new school year. I appreciated the worksheets he provide that supplemented the material in the book. Excellent teaching style.

William was able to accommodate my quick need for a tutor as well as meet me as requested

He is courteous and extremely professional

I would recommend him to anyone looking for a math tutor.

Needed this class to graduate and had dropped it twice before to avoid a failing grade. Ended up with a C (which is great for me!) and headed to graduation. Thanks.

William is very patient and never makes me feel like any question is foolish. He explains the math in such a way it is much easier for me to understand. I was hesitant to hire a tutor I didn't know but William was very responsive right from the start. Within the week he was meeting me in my college library to tutor me. I feel very comfortable meeting with him and the tutoring sessions are very productive for me.

William was very patient and extremely helpful. I actually think I learned something which I thought was impossible when it comes to algebra. I am confident that I will receive a good grade on my assignment. I look forward to working with William in the future.

William was very thorough in his review of material for calculus II. Very knowledgeable and always was available whenever you needed him. He was a great help and I passed the required course due to him.

Bill is a very professional tutor. He is always punctual. Bill was very available and made time to fit me into his schedule to make sure I understood the information before my quiz. Bill was able to help me doing better job and understanding. Bill was very patient and try to help me understand the subject. I would definitely work with him again. Thanks a lot. I highly recommend Bill P.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

In obtaining my Bachelor's degree in mathematics, I took the standard undergraduate course in ordinary differential equations. Partial differential equations were also included in one of my undergraduate advanced calculus courses. In addition, I learned many aspects of the theory of differential equations in various advanced undergraduate and graduate math courses. Differential equations finds some of its most significant applications in the field of physics, and I gained a knowledge of many of these applications in obtaining my B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics. I also taught an undergraduate course in differential equations at Binghamton University, and tutored many students in diff. eq. as a professional math tutor at Penn State Wilkes-Barre. I look forward to the opportunity to help you succeed in differential equations.

In obtaining my BS and Master's degrees in mathematics, I took a number of courses that included the essential topics of discrete mathematics. These courses included logic, set theory, sequences, mathematical induction, number theory, combinatorics, probability and graph theory. As an instructor at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, I had the opportunity to teach discrete math several times. In addition, I also successfully tutored discrete math students in individual and group settings as a professional math tutor in the Learning Center at Penn State. I hope to have the chance to help you in discrete math.

In the course of obtaining my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in mathematics, I studied all the essential topics of finite mathematics. I also taught a finite math course at Penn State (University Park). In addition, I tutored many students in finite math while serving as a professional math tutor in the Learning Center at Penn State Wilkes-Barre. I would be glad to help you with finite math.

The understanding of the importance of the applications of linear algebra to many different fields has grown significantly in recent years. As a result, students in many different majors are now required to complete linear algebra courses. I completed the basic undergraduate linear algebra course (for math majors) while obtaining my Bachelor's degree in math. I also completed a graduate level linear algebra course. In addition, I have a good appreciation for the applications of linear algebra in science (particularly physics), engineering, and other fields. While at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, I taught an undergraduate linear algebra course (for engineering majors) several times, and also tutored many students in linear algebra while serving as a professional math tutor. I look forward to the opportunity to help you succeed in linear algebra.

In obtaining my BS in mathematics, I was required to complete a "transition to higher math" course. This course included the basic concepts of logic, stressing those necessary to do mathematical proofs. In completing my master's degree in math (Binghamton University), as well as in PhD courses I have taken at Penn State and Binghamton U, I have continued to put these concepts of logic into practice. In addition, I have taught many aspects of logic in college courses on Discrete Math (at Penn State Wilkes-Barre) and Finite Math (at Penn State University Park) These courses included basic propositional logic (truth tables, negations, logical equivalence, rules of inference), quantifiers, and applications. I hope to have the opportunity to help you in logic.
