Hello, and thank you for reading my profile. I am currently working as a substitute teacher, and I am a retired educational diagnostician. You may ask, "What is a diagnostician?" A diagnostician is the person, along with the school psychologist, that tests students (IQ and achievement, usually) for eligibility for special education services.

Hello, and thank you for reading my profile. I am currently working as a substitute teacher, and I am a retired educational diagnostician. You may ask, "What is a diagnostician?" A diagnostician is the person, along with the school psychologist, that tests students (IQ and achievement, usually) for eligibility for special education services. It is a great skill because I am fortunate enough to be able to help students reach their maximum potential, regardless of any disabilities they may have.
I possess a masters' degree in special education, and I have taught all grades, from K through college, although I'm most successful with middle school through high school-age students. My specialties are SAT/ACT preparation, math (algebra, geometry, etc.), and written expression. Nearly all my students have shown improvement in their overall understanding of the subject, their test and report card grades, and, most importantly, their ability to succeed independently. I'm quite proud of my previous success teaching at Sylvan Learning Center as well as in students' homes, which is where I enjoy the most success.
In conclusion, I am grateful to be a part of a student's education. My first priority is to teach how valuable learning can be and that it is a lifelong process for every successful person. Teaching has been the most rewarding part of my entire working life, and I hope to continue well into the future.
Teenagers love him!
We hired Bill for SAT Math tutoring for my son - H.S. senior. He really liked Bill, his personality, his humor and worked very well with him. We had 3 sessions with Bill in one week (even though it was a bit of a drive for Bill) and taught my son the strategies and "tricks" of the SAT Math. My son felt much more confident in taking the SAT for the 2nd time after working with Bill. He raised his math section score by 70 points!Janeen, 6 lessons with Bill
Awesome with our teenager!
Our son is understanding more of his coursework in algebra. His frustration level is going down and his comprehension is going up. Bill is able to break the topics down in a way that make more sense to our son. Thank you!Sarah, 6 lessons with Bill
Very knowledgeable and patient tutor and enjoyable person!
Bill worked with Daniel on SAT review, he was very helpful in going over key elements that the SAT math section covers. Bill was very knowledgeable about the SAT test and was very helpful! They developed a strategy for Daniel to prepare. Very effective tutoring session. We will do more with Bill! He's also a very enjoyable person as a plus!Suzanne, 10 lessons with Bill

A Caring Tutor!
Bill is an awesome tutor for my grandson. He establishes a caring and interested relationship with students from the beginning. My Grandson feels safe to learn and work with Mr Bill. This is essential and helps him be receptive to the lesson. I know this year Wyatt will have much more confidence in math!Shelley, 3 lessons with Bill

We are Very Lucky having Bill as our son tutor. We see his progress and his willingness to learn.Pat, 7 lessons with Bill
Great tutor! Will call again next school year!
Bill was very patient with our daughter who was having difficulty in math. He was on time, and worked with us on scheduling. Our daughter's math grades improved immediately. Our only regret is that we didn't contact him earlier in the school year. Would definitely recommend Bill to anyone looking for a reliable, proficient tutor.Brian, 9 lessons with Bill
