Want to improve your SAT math score by 100+ points? Your ACT Math score by 8+ points? The best test takers are prepared test takers. Scoring well on these tests requires 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 130 points, their ACT math scores by an average of 8 points, and I recently tutored a student who improved their PSAT score from 194 to 225, and is recognized as a National Merit SemiFinalist. My goal is to unlock your potential and enable you to achieve your best score.
I enjoy working with students to grasp math concepts for Pre-Calc, Trig, and Algebra. I work 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 currently teach 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 was looking for a tutor for my niece to improve her SAT score and after working with a couple of SAT Math tutors on WyzAnt I found Bill to be outstanding. He responded to my emails quickly, gave me an overview of his plan for the first lesson which I appreciate because it set my expectations, he then did a followup email after the first meeting and detailed a plan of what the student needs to work on and next steps. My niece said that Bill was very nice and encouraging and she is looking forward to working with him. Part of what I look for in a tutor is his timely response, his impression on the student and if he has a plan on what needs to be done to achieve a goal and so far Bill has been outstanding.
Since working with Bill my niece has improved her math score by 100 points and today she got accepted to the university she wanted. We couldn't be happier. We owe a lot of her success to Bill and I just want to say to him THANK YOU! we truly appreciate your work, advise and encouragement.
Bill taught my daughter easier methods to answer questions. He is patient and very good at what he does. You won't be disappointed. My daughter feels more confident that with Bill's guidance, she will accomplish her goal without a doubt.
He made sure my son was comfortable with the concept and moved at a pace that matched my son's. He took the time to explain the why's and the how's in terms my son could understand.
This is just our first session but very satisfy with Bill's knowledge and patience. well organized and excellent explanation. We look forward to the next session.
loved working with bill, he's super patient and really understands the concepts of what he's teaching you making it comfortable for students to ask questions- and a lot of them
Rating 4.5. It is difficult to rate following just one session however Bill was knowledgeable, initiated working on what we were looking for with re: to my daughter's PSAT preparation, and provided her with strategies and tips she felt would be helpful.
The initial session with my daughter went very well. She is excited to learn from Bill and improve her ACT Math score.
It has been great experience working with Bill. He has great personality and approach to teach core concepts. He has great approach to go over the strengths and weakness and put a plan together to work on each step.
I have always struggled in Math. I failed every semester and couldn't even pass my Math TSI to graduate. In a matter of weeks Bill brought my math skills from a middle school level to a college level and now I can graduate with my associates this semester. He is very patient, gentle demeanor, personable and builds confidence within yourself to achieve. You couldn't ask for a better tutor. Thank you Bill for your encouragement and dedication to my learning.
My son scored well on his ACT test, except for math. Because his scores were not high enough he was accepted to his college on probationary terms of him taking two Algebra course. The only way he could get out of taking those courses were if he took the math Compass test and scored a 42.
My son only had enough time to have 7 lessons with Bill before he had to take his test. I am happy to say that he passed with a 57.
I tried two tutors before Bill. They were very nice people but did not have a plan on how to prepare my son for his test. The thing that I loved most about Bill was that he had experience in preparing kids for testing. He had a game plan to figure out were the holes were, so he knew what to focus on. He also did research to find out what my son needed for his test, so he could better prepare him. Bill was definitely worth our time and money.
My son went for the first lesson last week and he really liked Bill and his tutoring skills. We booked few more of 2 hour sessions with Bill before my son's SAT exam. Very flexible in his schedule and easy to reach him if any questions.
Bill is willing to go above and beyond with detailing out a working plan to help my child succeed and jumps onboard with his flexibility for added support when needed. I am very grateful to have him helping my child!
My son was very excited after working with Bill. He said Bill was very patient and explained concepts in ways he could understand. My son is looking forward to the next session with Bill and is very confident that Bill will help him raise his SAT scores.
From the first day of working together, I knew right off the bat that Bill would be the best tutor I'd ever had, and I couldn't have been proven more right. Bill is absolutely phenomenal. He's so encouraging, down to earth, and very personable. He breaks the stereo-type of math tutors being nerdy and difficult to understand. Definitely one of the most relatable guys ever! Math has plagued me since my early high school years. The defining moment came when the only thing that stood in between my graduating with a college degree, was a single math credit, which I had put off for three years. I enrolled in a wintermester algebra class, which packed a 16 week semester of college algebra into 10 days. I hadn't touched math in four years. My first test score was a 27 in my math class. That was before Bill started tutoring me. By the time Bill had guided me through the course and the final exam rested on my desk, I was more than prepared and ended up nearly tripling my score, receiving far above a passing grade. Frankly, it was a miracle, and my math phobia was overcome through the guidance of Bill F. Hire him. This guy will rock your world.
Bill is an AWESOME AWESOME math tutor!! We can only hope he tutors for a long time! We as parents get the feeling that he really enjoys tutoring math and wants our daughter to succeed!
First ACT session, but my son was impressed by Bill and felt he will really help improve his score. Fingers crossed!
Bill is an amazing tutor. His method allows for you to not going over redundant stuff rather information that will help you improve your score. After one session, I feel much more confident in what we went over during the session. I feel as if I can apply the concept we went over in more esoteric situations and still be able to work it out. Amazing tutor. I recommend.
Bill is tutoring my daughters for the ACT Math sections, and PSAT Math sections. It was the first tutoring session and he's very knowledgeable and patient.
My son improving his math skills faster. Bill is a wonderful tutor!!! I recommend him highly.
Thanks Bill for your hard work!!!!
I like that Bill first assessed my son's Algebra II strengths and deficits, and then developed a plan to for success in Precalculus. He was prepared, organized and knowledgeable, and demonstrated excellent rapport with my son. Highly recommended!
We need some one who could help our Son in his ACT Math I contacted Bill he was very prompt in his response and was on time for my sons first class he right away found out why my son was having issues with his Math and gave him strategies as to how to improve his Skills I was very impressed and we will continue using him as a Tutor.
He is teaching my kids Math. I like that he first makes an assessment of the students abilities and then accordingly tailors his program.
Bill, you have done excellent work with Jordan. He is actually more confident in his ability figure out his Algebra homework and is looking forward to the next time you meet.
Very patient and thorough with answering questions. Let her work through problems so she hopefully will do amazing on Friday's test!!
Bill is now working with my second child on the math portion of the SAT. We are beyond pleased with his style as both of my kids understand his explanations. Highly recommend.
My son really likes Bill for a tutor. He is very patient and doesn't make him feel stupid when he doesn't get something. I would definitely recommend him.
Bill is an excellent tutor! He is very patient and can really explain Precalculus in a way that my son can understand. He has helped my son bring his grade up in that class. My son was making a D in Precal so we were in desperation mode when we heard about WyzAnt and found Bill! My son had a lot of catching up to do but Bill was patient and quickly discovered what my son knew and didn't know. After several sessions, he had helped my son catch up to where the class was. Like so many other reviews of Bill, I only wish we had found WyzAnt and Bill sooner! I have an older son who could have used him in high school also. We are continuing to work with Bill on any Precal that comes up that my son has trouble with AND Bill is tutoring him in ACT prep now also. Bill is also a great communicator with parents as he is willing to work with you around kids' busy schedules to find what fits into your life and budget.
We have had several math tutors work with our daughter and I am amazed at how well she learns from Bill. She is in IB math and it is very challenging. The tutor has had approximately 5 sessions with our daughter and she has gone from being totally lost in calculus to completely understanding it. He is an excellent tutor and I highly recommend him.
My daughter needed to raise her ACT math and science scores to increase her overall score from 28 to a minimum of 30 to be considered for Early Decision admission to a top 20 university. After just 4 sessions with Bill, she took the test again and made a 31, applied ED and was accepted. The increase in her ACT score allowed her to be seriously considered, and without that score there probably would have been a different outcome.
Bill was extremely reliable, flexible, and responsive. When working with my daughter, he explained things in a simple, logical way that was really easy to understand. She had worked with other tutors in the past that were much more expensive but never felt that the sessions were helpful. She always left her sessions with Bill feeling better prepared and more confident about the test, and knows that the help that he gave her was the key to her increased score.
I highly recommend Bill!!
Bill has a way with young people in addition to being an excellent teacher. He is also good at making sure our sessions happen on the right day with respect to tests and other goals. I wish we'd found him sooner, but thank goodness we have him now.
Michael is really enjoying his sessions with Bill. Bill teaches to make sure that Michael understands the lower level concepts and then stretches him to do better on the higher level concepts. Would highly recommend for PSAT/SAT tutoring.
Bill did an amazing job tutoring our son. Bill was very patient and easy to work with. Our son's scores went way up, and we have Bill to thank for helping and encouraging him! He is honest in his assessment and what he thinks your student will need. He doesn't ask or push for anything more. If the need arose, we would definitely hire Bill again!
Bill tutored my son for his ACT Math and Science, as well as his pre-cal. His pre-cal grade went up by 8 points. He made 29 on both Math and Science ACT. Bill was patient and easy to work with. I would definitely use him again.
Bill was extremely helpful and accommodating to our needs. After 2 and 1/2 hours of tutoring my 11th grader proclaimed, " I have learned more in the last two hours than I learned all year!" I would recommend Bill to a donkey. Not saying my son is a donkey, but when a son or daughter is just lost in a subject and having someone like Bill helping them over the hump, gives a parent so much hope.
Bill has been working with my son to improve his SAT Math scores. Bill's style is one that doesn't involve a radical system but addresses how our son is working on math problems. Bill has helped with keeping pace on the SAT so he is able to complete the section in the time that is allotted. Bill's feedback is very constructive and positive that help reinforce his math skills. My son struggles in Math and Bill's style is very refreshing to the point he feels confident in his problem solving skills that he has learned from Bill.
Bill's summary notes on the tutor sessions are prompt and detailed. I highly recommend Bill for any Math tutoring or SAT preparation.
Bill has been tutoring my daughter in math for her SAT. His approach has been great. He was able to quickly establish where her weaknesses were and address them. She feels much more confident now in her abilities to work and solve math problems. She has made great strides since starting to work with Bill. She is now not fearing her upcoming SAT, but is actually excited to see how much she can improve her score.
I would highly recommend Bill as a tutor. He has been great at motivating, encouraging, and building my daughter's self confidence in her math skills.
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.
I teach an ACT prep class at a private school, helping students grasp underlying concepts so they can work a variety of problems. Students improve an average of 6+ points. I show students multiple methods so they learn new approaches and pick the one that makes most sense.

The best PSAT test takers are prepared test takers. Students improve their math score by 10+ points after coaching. I identify growth areas after giving an assessment, and ensure students understand the underlying concepts. Students practice using sample tests and see improvement after 4-5 sessions. I have helped two students achieve Semifinalist status (224+ scores).
