Want to improve your SAT math score by 100+ points? Your ACT Math score by 4+ points?

My goal is to make you successful and I invest in you so we reach your goals together. My experience over the years in a private school and in 1:1 tutoring has shown me the simplest ways to break down concepts so they make sense to you. This results in increased test scores, both in the classroom and for the college placement tests. Effectiveness is reflected in the 5 Star ratings from over 1100 students over 3200+ hours of tutoring.

The best test takers are prepared test takers. Scoring well on tests first depends on knowing your gaps. I will give you a free assessment, and create a custom plan for you. Once I teach you the concepts, I will give you opportunity to practice, honing your math skills, and learning the best test-taking strategies. I will clearly teach you the underlying concepts and problem solving techniques, reinforced with focused practice, versus confusing techniques that may be forgotten on test day. My students have increased their SAT math scores by an average of 100 points, their ACT math scores by an average of 4 points. I have helped many pass the ASVAB and realize their goal of joining the military. If you are lost in math class, and dread going to school, I can help you turn your class around. My goal is to unlock your potential and enable you to achieve your best grade.

I enjoy working with students to grasp math concepts for Pre-Calc, Trig, and Algebra. I have worked in a math lab in a private school, working each week to explain math problems to students in a way they understand. I have helped failing students pass, and moved students from "Bs" to "As".

I have an engineering degree from Texas A&M, a master's degree in Computer Engineering from SMU, and have taught math classes and SAT/ACT preparation classes at a private high school, working with students of varying learning styles. As I work with students to help them understand math problems, they often say "is that all I have to do?" Typical math problems on these tests can be solved in just a few lines of work, once you know the proper approach. I enjoy working with students and get excited along with students when they see their tests scores improve. My goal is for each student to achieve their best score on these tests to improve their chances of being admitted to the college of their choice, and increase their chances to earn college scholarships.

I tutor online, and love the Wyzant learning platform. It provides full audio/video, an interactive whiteboard, and records sessions for late review. Sign up today and begin increasing your confidence, grades, and test scores! Thank you and I look forward to working with you!

First lesson - amazing

My son, who is not full of compliments, appeared from his first session super excited saying “he’s amazing!!” Looking forward to what’s to come!

Shari, 2 lessons with Bill

Very knowledgeable and easy to work with

My son has met online with Bill for two sessions so far for ACT math and science. My son told me that Bill explains things very well and feels he is really helping him. We have scheduled another session. I’ll update after my son takes the ACT in September.

Highly Recommended

We were thrilled with Wyzant and our son's math tutor Bill F. My son was preparing for the SAT with a goal of raising his score over 1500. Thanks to Bill's help my son raised his math score 60 points to a 780! My son really enjoyed his tutoring sessions with Bill, who explained the concepts in clear language and utilized a white board to demonstrate. I highly recommend him!

Nathan, 6 lessons with Bill

Extremely knowledgeable, patient, flexible, and kind

When I started working with Bill, my SAT score was 1350, with a 600 in math. A group SAT instruction class done through my school hadn't helped me as much as I wanted; my goal for math was 650. So, I turned to Wyzant on a recommendation from a family friend. I found Bill within a few minutes of looking at top-rated tutors, and after an initial session, it seemed like a good fit. We started working together at the end of March, a few weeks after that month's SAT. I immediately gained a better understanding of math concepts I had only vaguely recognized, and I sharpened the skills I already had. He answered all my questions with patience, and if a particular method stumped me, he would teach it from a different angle. It was easily one of the best teaching experiences I've ever had. After weekly sessions -- often at odd hours due to my busy schedule, but Bill was always flexible and understanding -- I took the SAT again in May. When my scores came back, my math had raised by 50 points to 650. It was such a dramatic improvement that I debated whether or not I needed to take the test again -- I'd gotten the math score I wanted and the June SAT seemed like it would only be added stress. However, the low-stress style of Bill's tutoring was anything but a cause of anxiety, so we decided to keep working toward June 1st. We covered last-minute struggles and reviewed test-taking tips so I'd be prepared for my final SAT. During the test, it was obvious how much more I knew. I felt confident and actually understood the majority of the problems, no small feat for a non-math person. My scores came back in July, and I was blown away. I had scored 1460, 110 points above my original, and got 680 in math. Both scores were much higher than anything I thought I could do. In just eight or so sessions, my math score had jumped 80 points. Based on my experience and the results I saw, I would highly recommend Bill to anyone in search of a math tutor. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, flexible, and kind. He understood that I had a busy life and was willing to work with me on my own schedule to make change happen. Working with Bill has been one of the most beneficial academic experiences I've had, and I'm very grateful. Whether or not you choose to work with him as a tutor for the SAT, I can almost promise you that you'll see improvement!

Very knowledgeable!

Bill is a patient tutor who makes sure you understand the concepts needed to improve math skills. He provides instruction and practice which are both beneficial.

Krysta, 15 lessons with Bill

My son wants him for a math teacher!

Knowledge can be par for the course, but I look for a tutor who knows how to truly teach the knowledge he holds to the student. Bill is that tutor. My son so wants him for a math teacher next year. Bill also communicates well and quickly (lightening fast) to me as a parent. Thanks for helping my son increase his speed and score on the ACT Math section!

Joy, 6 lessons with Bill

Top notch. Knowledgeable and Patient

Bill is great with my 17 year old, helping him prepare For SAT math. Bill identified his areas of weakness and gave a personalized plan to help him improve. Great guy and tutor!

Saad, 9 lessons with Bill

Great SAT math specialist

My daughter is working with Bill to raise her SAT math score, and in two lessons has made progress on practice tests. Encouraged for the next test in August. She says he’s great at identifying her specific weaknesses and I’m really appreciative of his very prompt and clear communication with me, both in regard to scheduling and in feedback about their work together. Grateful to have found him.

Best investment I've made in a long time

After only four weeks of math tutoring with Bill F, my son was able to raise his ACT composite score by 3 points. He's being recruited by some amazing D1 football programs, and we knew he needed to raise his score to ensure he remained at the top of their list. The scores came out on the 18th, and today, he was offered by the US Naval Academy. On the way home after receiving the offer, he immediately asked me to thank Bill for him. I must admit, I was a little skeptical about paying for online tutoring services initially. However, after the very first session, I was sold. The Wyzant platform is very user-friendly, and Bill is a true subject-matter expert with great patience and professionalism. He provided progress reports and homework assignments to me after every session and I found it very easy to collaborate with him in helping my son reach his goals. I can't remember the last time I reviewed an item or service, but I couldn't let the day end without expressing my most sincere gratitude to Bill, for helping my son find the confidence he needed to re-test and succeed. If your child is presently struggling with math and like me, you've been out of school for 20+ years and unable to help in this area, I highly recommend Bill F. Without a doubt, the best investment I've made in a long time.
