Bill is an incredible math tutor. I have been out of school for quite some time and needed a refresher of basic math plus everything I had to know for the GRE. Bill is extremely passionate about math and teaching. His ways of teaching made it not only easy to remember but enjoyable to learn! In a short time, I was able to improve a previous score and develop an appreciation for math. I would highly recommend Bill to anyone who needs a math tutor. He is an excellent teacher and a math genius. I feel very grateful to have been able to work with him as part of my journey into Graduate school. Thanks, Bill!Nov 7, 2019VerifiedBill Knows Math's reply
It was indeed my pleasure to work with Doreen. Although she described herself as "terrible at math", I suspected that she simply never had a teacher that could explain a math course to her in a way that made sense. As with many students, the study of mathematics is a difficult chore with so many things to memorize (e.g. the unit circle during the study of trigonometry), to which I say "nonsense." Instead of memorizing a bunch of JUNK, I chose to understand the concepts in such a way as to avoid the need to memorize all of that nonsense. When I meet with a student I try to convey the essence of what really is important to know without all the extra bull**** that is not necessary. Doreen bought into my way of thinking (I believe that I am a good salesman in that regard) about mathematics which helped her to learn a great deal in a short time (about 3 weeks). If I had as much time to work with her as I have with most students, I believe very strongly that she would have achieved an even better result.
I hired Bill to tutor my daughter in Algebra II based on the other references. We are happy to confirm BILL is great! My daughter said she is now understanding math and that he did a great job explaining everything she was having trounle with in class. Highly recommend!!Sep 4, 2018VerifiedBill Knows Math's reply
I will continue to support Jane (name changed to protect privacy) during this school year. She asks good questions during our tutoring sessions. It is a joy to work with her.
Mr Pow has really helped my daughter through a difficult school move - her grades have improved and she really engages with him during the tutoring. Mr Pow is friendly, approachable and knows how to identify weaknesses quickly. Thank you.Dec 6, 2018Verified

I enjoyed working with Rachel (name changed to protect privacy). She was extremely attentive to my instruction and she asked questions for clarification on some of the points to ensure that she understood thoroughly. I will be pleased to provide her with support in the future.
Bill has been tutoring my son for over two years, in Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2. He is a great tutor, very energetic and makes sure that my son understands the material. I would highly recommend him.Apr 24, 2017VerifiedBill Knows Math's reply
It has been my pleasure to work with Scott (named changed to protect privacy) since the fall of 2014. Scott also brings energy to our tutoring sessions which increases his ability to learn. I will continue to support Scott during his high school studies of mathematics. This will continue into college if necessary.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge clients by the hour. If you wish to commit to 10 or more hours of services, then I will apply a 10% discount.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?If a new customer is not satisfied with the first session, I will not ask for payment.
