Hi there, I am a professional tutor with 7+ years of experience! I specialize in tutoring Honor Physics, AP Physics, College Physics, as well as Algebra and Geometry. I really enjoy helping students grasp complex Math and Physics concepts, gain confidence and get better scores.

For 5 years at Rutgers University while pursuing my PhD, I taught Physics lab sessions to large classes of Pre-Med students, as well as tutoring them individually. Being a teacher and a tutor provided me two very different perspectives: the former focuses on selecting and presenting materials with clear learning objectives on course contents and science practices, the latter thrives on identifying and satisfying the student's individual needs.
With proficiencies in both aspects, I've developed and honed a set of effective tutoring approaches over the years. I provide tailored services to improve each student's course understanding and test performances:
1. Comprehensive review of concepts and laws of Physics I and II.
2. Systematic problem-solving techniques for challenging topics.
3. Quick-solving tips and tricks to gain speed in a test.
4. An ample collection of practice problems with various difficulties.
5. Effective heuristics for easier memorization of formulas.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is extremely important for developing a child's mathematical intuition, logical thinking and problem-solving skills. If taught improperly, the child will suffer from the rote memorization of the math facts and the confusion of scattered math concepts, which lead to reluctance and resentment toward the subject. My tutoring starts with sparking the child's interests by showing what's possible, teaching them Why as well as How, and utilizing relevant examples to motivate the child. During the session, I apply an 80/20 rule to the ratio of given praise/criticism to keep the child content and engaged. After each session, I will assign tailored exercise for the child to practice and connect learned points to strengthen the understanding.

Knowledgeable, precise.

Went through my son’s homework problems with a breeze. Very good. Will come back and request for his service again. So happy my son has a coach for physics. Knowledgeable. Precise. Intelligent.

William is the man!!

In a short time working with our son, a junior in high school, he’s made great progress in grasping a better understanding of his work in honors physics. William is always on time, replies to messages quickly and is super patient.

Knowledgeable tutor

My daughter just had one lesson with Dr William. She understands her AP Physics much better with Dr William’s explanation. Looking forward to have more lessons with Dr William!

Lifesaver!

I am so thankful that we found William to help our High School Freshman with Physics. As a homeschooling mom who never took Physics, I needed someone to be able to explain concepts that I cannot. We only had one lesson and my son already feels more confident and he is amazed at how much he learned in just one hour. We hopefully will be able to find open spots on Williams calendar so we can continue working with him!

Great tutor.

William is a great tutor. He has a wealth of knowledge that has helped my son tremendously with AP Physics. My son was very impressed with Williams ability to explain the material and help him navigate through the equations.

Erric, 14 lessons with William

Very Patient and Helpful

Physics has been very hard for me to grasp. William helped me so much. I plan to go to him for help more often in the future. He is very patient and explains in detail when you are confused how something works or why it works. Very knowledgeable. I was able to explain to my dad afterwards how to do the same question that confused me and my dad only 2 nights ago.

Great Teacher!

William Z is helping my son with Physics. After one lesson, my son finally understood what he’s been trying to figure out for the last three months. My son also appreciated that William Z, before the start of the lesson, went out of his way to gather as much information as possible for the purpose of understanding his challenges with physics. My son said William Z was very knowledgeable and was able to demonstrate how to solve problems he was struggling with for some time. Thank you William Z for helping my son understand physics.

Knowledgeable

William used different techniques to help my daughter understand the lesson . We were both very satisfied with the session.we will recommend to any parents with children struggling in math. He was well prepared.

Very knowledgeable

My son wasn’t too thrilled when he found out I scheduled today’s tutoring session. That changed after he finished the session. He was comfortable and definitely couldn’t wait to have the next session thanks to Mr William.
