I have over 35 years of experience in chemical analysis, medical services, and technical support in military, civilian and contracting environments. I am experienced in FAA, GFAA, UV-Vis, ICP, XRF, IC/HPLC, GC and wet chemistry analytical methods, and have trained culturally diverse groups of personnel in both industrial and military settings.
I have delivered technical support to sales agents and customers, both from sales and teaching standpoints. I have prepared training-specific documents for sales staff and customer users; developed hazardous materials and chemical hygiene plans for main office and staff; and performed general and specialized chemistry and specific bacteriological tests for industrial waste water.
I generally like to teach to the problem, coaching the student through the specific problem, stressing fundamentals and recalling previous rules for use in addressing the particular issues. I generally maintain that I will guide the student, lead the student and point the student towards the goal; however, it is ultimately up to the student to grasp the concepts sufficiently to apply them.

Bill worked with my son mid way through his 9th grade year of geometry. After only two sessions my son had better quiz scores. After four sessions he had brought his GPA up by and entire letter. My only regret was that I didn't hire Bill sooner this year! He was excellent in communicating with me. My son had a tough sports schedule and Bill was very accommodating. We always found a way to make a time work. Bill is someone you can be confident in hiring. Hoping he's available next year for Algebra II.
Bill has been tutoring my son whom had been struggling in honors Chemistry. Since Bill started tutoring him in March things have gotten dramatically better and he now has a B in the class. Bill is very responsive.
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.
