About William

I graduated January 2015 with a PhD in history from the University of Oxford. I have five years of teaching experience, including at Oxford, an LAUSD public school, and a private high school. When I'm not consulting or teaching, I'm writing about 14th-century Italian history.

As a tutor, my goal is to train students in best practices, helping them move beyond the superficial to engage with a subject's core themes and methodology. Students are mentored to understand their subject's inner logic -- that is, the mindset of a historian, a writer, or a Latinist. Students generally show marked improvement after only a couple lessons. I boast a superlative track record: no student of mine has failed an AP test (and most have earned 4s or 5s).

I specialize in European history, English composition, the SAT/ACT verbal sections, college-application essays, and Latin. Weekend appointments preferred, but weeknights are possible with advanced notice.

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.

European History

I have a BA in history from UCLA and am about to complete a PhD in history from the University Oxford. I have taught renaissance and medieval history at Oxford and an English prep school. I have also tutored American students in AP European history (100% of my students have passed the exam, most with 4s and 5s).
