I am a full-time, professional GMAT, GRE and EA tutor. I have logged over 7,500 hours on the Wyzant platform over 11 years of full-time tutoring and I consider myself an expert. I use practice questions from official guides and major schools to help my students focus on the impediments that have prevented them from answering questions correctly. Each of those impediments involves an underlying formula, theorem, number property, shortcut, process, trap, argument analysis, approach to various verbal reasoning question types, word definitions reading passage types and pitfalls to avoid.

After each lesson, I give my students the explanations we discussed and then several days later they attempt to answer the questions again at home. Any of those that the students still cannot answer correctly are discussed again in the next lesson, and this continues until the students can correctly answer every question.

In addition, I give my students new practice questions to answer at home and we discuss the ones the students missed in our next lesson. I also provide flashcards of all the principles we discuss and GRE word flashcards with definitions and sentences containing the words.

I have tutored GMAT and EA prep more than 7,500 hours on the Wyzant platform over the past 11 years and I am able to explain difficult-to-master material in an understandable way that is clear and concise. That requires an unusual combination of exceptional information management skills and effective communication skills developed through 25 years managing large, complex processes to deliver superior results. I focus on principles and procedures that enable my students to avoid the impediments that have prevented them from answering exam questions correctly. We discuss when and how to use these principles and procedures to most efficiently answer each step of each question that the student answers incorrectly. After each lesson, I provide homework consisting of (1) explanations we discussed, (2) flashcards of all idioms that appear in homework sentence correction questions, (3) questions not previously answered, (4) homework questions missed previously, and (5) flashcards of all the underlying principles and explanations we have discussed. Missed homework questions are discussed in the next lesson, after which they continue to go back into the homework until the students can correctly answer them at home.

GRE practice session

William is a very helpful and patient tutor! It’s been a great experience working with him while preparing for the GRE. I highly recommend him to anyone preparing for this exam.

Experienced and Knowledgable

William tutored me for the GMAT over the course of little over 2 months. His lesson structure and practical approach enabled me to rapidly identify and deal with gaps in my knowledge and skill set, while challenging me using questions set at an appropriate level of difficulty to help raise my skill level. I ended up scoring a 770 (99th percentile score) out of 800 on an August 2022 GMAT. I highly recommend his work - especially for those who are looking for advanced assistance and advice to take your score to the next level, which few (if any) GMAT prep courses are equipped to do half as well as William can!

Amazing and Well organized

He has a very detailed and specific plan for his sessions. He’s a great tutor. I felt very comfortable in our first session.

Professional. Encouraging. All-Around Excellent

I worked with William for 3 months to help me improve my GRE math score -- not only did I hit my target score, but William gave me the foundational knowledge and confidence to know that I was tackling my weaknesses in the right way. He's an excellent communicator who cares about his students, and I'm very lucky to have found him. After re-taking the GRE, I ended up being accepted into my top-choice graduate program; I attribute a lot of my success to him.

Knowledgeable and Experienced Tutor

William is a terrific GMAT tutor. After a couple of months of work together, he helped me raise my score by 70 points and achieve my goal of scoring in the 700s, which I am absolutely positive I could not have done on my own. In particular, my quant score jumped up significantly, which is quite important for b-school applications. We spent our lessons quite effectively, focusing mainly on the material with very little chit chat. Outside of lessons, William assigned homework on his proprietary website that adjusts the material and content tested in real time based off of our lessons. Besides focusing on the quant and verbal sections, William was also able to provide essay and IR prep where needed. Throughout my time with William, I took GMAT official practice exams to test my progress, and with each test, my scores would increase, proving the success of the program. I would definitely recommend William for someone looking to get right down to business and achieve great results (with hard work put in as well). Thanks for everything, William!

Excellent Tutor

William has a strong, data-driven system for teaching and reinforcing the underlying principles required to be successful on the Executive Assessment. My target score was 150, and I got a 153. I highly recommend William.

Ryan, 13 lessons with William

Excellent GMAT/Executive Assessment Tutor

William was a terrific tutor in all subject matters for the GMAT/Executive Assessment - particularly in the quant sections. I had not reviewed any of the material in close to a decade and William was able to get me back up to speed very quickly. He is calm mannered and does a great job of explaining concept comments. Additionally, he is extremely responsive with questions on homework. William would be a terrific choice as a tutor.

Daniel, 14 lessons with William

Really exceeded my expectations

William helped me increase my GRE scores by 10 points in about 1.5 months. He is so knowledgable and is always willing to answer any questions you want to go over. He has a customized plan to help you achieve your goals and his homework sets truly make you work for your scores. Would recommend to anyone looking to increase their scores on the GRE.

Great Tutor!

William is patient and works with you all through the process. You can't go wrong if you pick him as your tutor. I am currently taking his help for the EA and his approach is already showing improvements. Hopefully my score reflects the same!
