William’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
I have taught basic English skills as part of a college prep course and constantly edit student work for grammar, but I believe in effective writing as a crucial skill in the digital age.
With my help, students develop the understanding of the rules of grammar, but also the ear for good writing.
Before I decided to study International Relations and Business, I almost wanted to become a mad scientist. I took some physics in college but couldn't get up early enough for the Saturday morning labs (I had to work on Friday nights in college).
I consider myself good at teaching the concepts and relationships before suggesting the rote use of formulas.
When students can grasp the concept first, they are more likely to grasp more complex concepts later (math builds). At the least, they develop critical thinking skills grow more comfortable visualizing abstract relationships.
I played basketball in high school with excellent coaching. I played while in college, but not for a college team. Both my high school coaches became WI hall-of-famers.
I am comfortable that with the coaching I had, and the fact that I played for so many years afterward, that I could help and coach someone.
While not a CFA, I am a professor of finance and have held numerous licenses for financial services (six in total).
I am confident that I can tutor this subject effectively.
I teach some mostly introductory finance courses to adults and helped to design some finance curriculum.
I can introduce you to the concepts and show you some tools.
I took college calculus and might only need to briefly brush-up on some aspects of Trigonometry. I always felt comfortable with Geometry in that I was able to understand the relations first and in some cases could then generate the formula logically from that understanding.
I have taught at the college level for ten years, and this includes courses in world literature, finance, economics, international studies, sociology, and more.
I had college calculus, so I can handle the math.
Overall, I have a broad educational and teaching base and am used to teaching adults.
I taught World Religions and Diversity multiple times in recent years as a college facilitator for a major educational institution. I also taught many sections of Diversity for a local university in a classroom or online environment.
I held the 63 for almost twenty years in AZ and had to take some continuing education tests. I also had to recently retake the exam as part of a combination license that included the series 65 license. I currently have an active license for 7, 63, and the advisory license.
I was a securities professional for twenty years and took numerous licensing and continuing education tests. I held six licenses at one time and currently hold two active licenses, having recently had to retake one. I recently took many practice tests for the Series 7 before I learned that they waived the test for me.
I understand note-taking strategies and reading methods as I have taught college orientation classes. I understand the different learning styles and intelligences.
