Spring dates for the updated SAT and ACT tests are coming up as well, and it's the perfect time to get an early start and put your best foot forward on your college applications.
I tutor at the UCSD campus and at many sites in San Diego and La Jolla. I am proud to have previous students accepted to universities including UC Berkeley, USC, and Stanford.
I look forward to helping students become knowledgeable and excel at all levels of education. Along with a degree from Cornell University in Biochemistry and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, San Diego, I have professional experience teaching, tutoring and mentoring in a variety of academic fields. Locally, I have provided teaching and counseling at the University of California, San Diego, and the Preuss School at UCSD. I also have experience preparing high school and college students for standardized tests including the SAT, ACT and GRE programs.
I understand that your time is precious - I will work with you to tailor tutoring for your schedule.
Learning can be difficult at times, but I believe anyone can learn anything, and do it well. I am here to provide a helping hand!
-Dr. Will

Fantastic chemistry tutor

William is a great tutor and will, no pun intended, strive to make his students understand concepts. In the short time I had to review for the final, he has helped me learn the course material way better. I am looking forward if I can have him as a tutor again next quarter.

Salvador, 2 lessons with William

Patient and simplified everything!

We went through aromaticity in depth and was able to find an easy way to recognize it. Also worked on some synthesis problems and methods to break down the problem in order to achieve the transformation. Very helpful and simplified many concepts during the tutoring session.

Cathy, 2 lessons with William

Invaluable Help

I have been scared to ask for help but I'm glad I have. William knew exactly what to do to help get me on track for an upcoming exam. Booking again ASAP. Thank you!!!

Great Tutor

Will has tutored both of my sons for the past few years in math and science at the high school level and ACT prep. He is a great tutor and my boys think he's great.

Alec , 72 lessons with William

Very helpful

William provided a comprehensive update on our sons progress in his on line courses. He detailed why his grades were a little low and his current work progress towards passing his classes. The work he is doing will hopefully help our son create good study habits and encouragement moving forward. We are very appreciative of Will's efforts...
