Results Are Everything
They say “results are everything” and this rang true in our experience with Bill. My son’s SAT score went up almost 100 points, which has allowed him to competitively apply to his top tier choice of colleges. My son was not interested in doing the online tutoring program until he spent one hour with Bill and knew it would be worth the work. Bill uses Facetime, a white board, and a workbook so seamlessly that my son felt he was sitting right next to him at a table. Bill focused on the exact subject and questions my son was having trouble with and wasted no time. He was articulate and concise, and also held my son accountable to finish all of his practice tests. Going over the results of the practice tests was also productive and even fun. I highly recommend Bill for your Wyzant needs. Diann

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

I cannot say enough good things about Bill. He has given my son renewed confidence in his ability to excel in math, and enhanced his skills and critical thinking. We used Bill for pre-calculus and 3 sessions on SAT math prep--which resulted in a 50 point increase to 720! Whenever I overhear the session, Bill is so kind, patient and encouraging. He also has a gentle way of getting my son back on topic if he starts chatting about other things. I can't recommend Bill highly enough, though concerned he will get too busy for us to schedule next fall, which we plan on doing for Calculus!
