About William

For the subjects that I tutor -- English language, writing skills and literature, Ancient Greek language and literature, Latin language and literature and mathematics-- I bring present and past elite University level teaching experience. I am former Rhetoric instructor at the University of California at Berkeley where I designed and taught my own freshman writing course. I am a recent Adjunct Professor of Law at USC Law School where I teach a class on the Law and Finance of Venture Capital, a class which is heavily focused on financial and mathematical skills applied to real life situations and a broad based survey class on the first year law subjects.

I bring an enthusiasm and a love of learning to my tutoring and teaching. I believe an education is a great opportunity for both the student and the teacher to make discoveries about themselves. I understand that learning certain subjects may present difficulties for some students. I have years of experience teaching both in the classroom and as a tutor and believe that my teaching methods, which are focused on tailoring my techniques to the individual student, have a very high success rate which results in my students receiving better grades and enjoying their education.

Approved subjects

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.

Greek

I was a comparative literature major at Princeton University for my B.A. Ancient Greek was my primary language. I wrote my senior thesis on an Ancient Greek linguistic topic and graduated magna cum laude and phi beta kappa. I attended UC Berkeley for comparative literature for two years as a Berkeley Fellow where my main concentration was in ancient literature.

I continue my studies to date in Ancient Greek. Special areas of emphasis: Homer, Plato, the Greek tragedies, lyric poets.

I am in the process of re-filing to complete my PhD degree at Cal.
