About William

My experience in teaching incorporates not only one-on-one instruction but teaching groups of individuals in technical subjects. This experience has been extensive in computer software where I not only taught about technology but worked with customers to explain complicated technology in terms they could understand. This ability to explain complicated subjects at the comprehension level of the student allows me to tailor not only the content but the method of instruction as well. Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing the spark of recognition in a student who now grasps a new concept or technique.

I specialize in the areas of computer technology, math, English, and physical science. This reflects by educational background with degrees in physics, English, and computer science. My experience in working with people from many backgrounds allows me to respect different cultures and their related learning styles. I enjoy both science as well as English and can explain both math as well as how to craft a well written essay. I have tutored English language learners from elementary through college levels. I like to challenge students but not overwhelm them with too much work. Learning math is like learning a new language and requires practice to become fluent.

I understand that in today's somewhat hectic environment difficulties can arise in your schedule. I will work with you to makeup classes when you must cancel.

I look forward to helping you achieve academic success in your studies.

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.
