About William

Hi Everyone!

My name is William K., and I'm currently an master's student at USC. My educational background includes graduating from Whitney High School and from University of California, San Diego with a 3.82 GPA in Biology. My career goals include eventually becoming an adult rehabilitation occupational therapist and a physician.

I have numerous years of teaching experience, which includes over 5 years of tutoring and 2 years of being a teaching assistant at UCSD within the Division of Biology. I led discussion sections for thirty undergraduate students per quarter, and facilitated their grasp on the most difficult concepts in biology. This included leading midterm and final examination review sessions for more than 400 undergraduate students. In addition to aiding students, I also assisted professors with grading exams and data input. As a result, UCSD has acknowledged my efforts with the Excellence in Teaching Award.

If you want someone who truly understands blocks towards academic success, I am the person to contact! I am very student centered in that I work with students in goal setting and implementing evidence-based methods of achieving academic goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADHD

As an occupational therapy student at USC, I work frequently with children, teenagers, and adults who have ADHD. I have a host of evidence based interventions in my tool box which includes environmental modifications, sensory strategies, and cognitive reframing in order to tackle ADHD. Additionally, I also studied ADHD both in college at UCSD and in my OT program at USC and have a clear understanding of the accepted theory behind it as well as the mechanisms behind commonly used interventions. My hope is to help students make lifestyle changes in order to combat ADHD.

Trombone

I've played the trombone for nine years during which time I was first chair at my high school for two years and first chair in my district honor band (out of four high schools). Additionally, I played one quarter in college as well. I used to help other trombone players in my high school with difficult musical pieces.

Yoga

I have been practicing yoga for over 2 years for 4-5 times a week at a yoga studio. In addition, in occupational therapy school, I worked closely with a yoga instructor in delivering yoga based mindfulness exercises to individuals with mental illness. I believe I am qualified to help individuals with their yoga practice.
