About Bill


Bio

I really enjoy working with students to grasp and master math concepts for Calculus, Pre-Calc, Trig, and Algebra. I am passionate about breaking down complex problems into clear steps that are easily understood. I have helped hundreds of students gain skill and confidence in their math classes. I draw on my 10 years as a math tutor working with students 1:1 as well as my 5 years teaching math at a private school.

I really enjoy working with students to grasp and master math concepts for Calculus, Pre-Calc, Trig, and Algebra. I am passionate about breaking down complex problems into clear steps that are easily understood. I have helped hundreds of students gain skill and confidence in their math classes. I draw on my 10 years as a math tutor working with students 1:1 as well as my 5 years teaching math at a private school. Additionally, I have experience in a math lab setting, where students bring their questions that I explain in simple steps. I have helped failing students pass, and moved students from "Bs" to "As". My goal is to unlock your potential and enable you to achieve your best grade.

My goal is to make you successful and I invest in you so we reach your goals together. My experience over the years 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 2000 students over 5800+ hours of tutoring.

If you need help to raise your SAT or ACT math/science test scores, I would also love to work with you! Students typically increase their SAT math scores by 100+ points and their ACT Math/Science test scores by 4+ points on test day. 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 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

The best at building your confidence

My son was struggling with calculus. Was hesitant to use a tutor because of pass experience. After his first lesson with Bill, he immediately regained his confidence. I highly recommend Bill for calculus. I wish he could tutor my son in all subjects.

The Best Ever Result!

Bill has been tutoring my son Advanced Functions ( Pre Calculus) and Calculus since last summer. He is patient, easy to work with, and my son achieved the highest average on math in his whole life so far. He seldom got high 90s on math before but this year he got the highest marks both for the final exam as well as the average, and therefore, will receive the subject award, which is the best gift for his last year of high school. Thank you Bill for your support and we look forward to working with you till the day my son doesn’t need to study math for good.

Bill is a great tutor

Bill served as my daughter's ACT coach from May 2020 to January 2021 - a total of 17 tutoring sessions. Our primary goals were to increase her Science and Math scores. True to Bill's bio, my daughter increased both her ACT Math and Science scores by 4+ points. Bill provides tailored tutoring and assigned work that should be accomplished between sessions. The student must be driven and focused to take full advantage of Bill's excellent approach. Bill his outstanding and he has my family's full endorsement as an ACT Science and Math tutor. I noticed that Bill's tutoring rate has more than doubled since he was my daughter's tutor. My opinion is that Bill is an outstanding tutor and that he will live up to the assertions made within his Wyzant bio. However, I'm convinced that a parent can find an equally fantastic tutor around the $100/hour price point.

Best Tutor on Wyzant!

My kids have worked with various tutors over the years, and Bill is by far the best. With Bill's instruction, my son achieved his goal of a 36 on the ACT (36 English, 36 math, 36 reading, 35 science). My son's scores were quite high before he worked with Bill, but Bill was able to take his scores to the next (highest) level. Bill distinguishes himself with his highly efficient lessons which are customized and targeted to the individual student. He is also flexible and responsive with the scheduling. In short, he is worth the higher than usual hourly rate!

super knowledgeable and helpful!

Bill really takes the time to fill the gaps on knowledge and give some really helpful tricks for problem solving. I look forward to working with him more!

Patient, thorough, great teacher

Bill helped my daughter with AP Calculus. He was able to explain and break down concepts for her to better understand. The look on her face after two lessons was filled with relief. Bill is very patient and kind while teaching. My daughter is on her way to a much better understanding of this challenging subject- thank you, Bill!

TRACY, 51 lessons with Bill

Very knowledgeable with clear teaching methods.

My son has been doing so much better in math than I could have hoped for! Bill teaches math from different approaches depending on his student and he challenges traditional teaching methods for methods that work best for you or your child. He is excellent and knows his subject matter extremely well. Thank you Bill!

Heather, 25 lessons with Bill

Great ACT and SAT Math Tutor!

We have used Bill for two kids, one for ACT math and one for SAT math. Both kids improved their scores significantly, with one scoring a 34 and the other a 780. He provided great tips and strategies and focusing in on the areas in need of improvement. He really helped my kids understand the concepts and he gave homework in between sessions to reinforce them. He also provided detailed feedback after each lesson. Don’t hesitate to use him!
