About Billy

Dear Student,

I went to College at Coastal Carolina University just up the road in Conway, SC, and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics in 1998. Since that time, I have taught Algebra at the high school level at Grace Preparatory Academy in Arlington, Texas, as well as conducting private tutoring. In addition to that, I have worked in the private business sector in jobs that have utilized problem solving skills and analytical thinking. These jobs include being an actuary and commissions analyst. These different jobs have made me a better problem solver and have helped me understand Algebra better. In addition, I have worked as a manager who trains analysts for several years so I have learned how to assess learning styles and adjust training accordingly.

My approach to tutoring and teaching is very similar to my approach to training in the business world. First, it is very important to understand how the student learns best. Different students learn in different ways. My first priority is to determine that. Once that is determined, I am able to present the material in a way that benefits the student most. Secondly, I work to find the root cause of the difficulty and address that. In some cases, it could be something as simple as a concept from a previous lesson that needs to be reviewed. As I am addressing the root cause I am also working to show the student how to think through things and what questions to ask themselves if they are having trouble doing so. Ultimately, my goal is to build a base of understanding that will help the student become self sufficient in mathematical study in the future and to help the student develop problem solving skills that will aid them throughout their lifetime. So far, this approach has worked well. I have had the privilege of seeing students go from struggling to success and understanding. I hope you will contact me and allow me to help you understand math better. Who knows, maybe in time, you will love math like I do.
