I am a professional GMAT and GRE tutor with eight years full-time experience. I have logged over 4,500 hours on the Wyzant platform and I consider myself an expert. I use practice questions from a variety of sources to focus on principles and procedures I have designed over the years to enable my students to avoid the impediments that have prevented them from answering exam questions correctly. We discuss when and how to use these principles and procedures to most efficiently answer each step of each question the student answers incorrectly.

After each lesson, I provide homework consisting of (1) explanations we discussed, (2) questions missed several days earlier, (3) questions not previously answered during our lessons, and (4) flashcards of all the underlying principles and explanations we have discussed. Missed homework questions are discussed in the next lesson, after which they continue to go back into the homework until the students can correctly answer them at home.

Very methodical, helpful and patient tutor

William did an assessment of my skills to get some data on areas I might need more help in. From there, we worked on problems based on my skill level so my accuracy could improve. He was great at explaining questions I did not get right, and would pause to ensure I understood the concepts. Overall, I've enjoyed working with William and can tell I am retaining some of the concepts we've gone over in our sessions.

Knowledgable and Patient - Quickly diagnosed some of my weaknesses

This was my first session with William, but I appreciate how he was able to quickly diagnose my Quant weaknesses and assign offline homework to improve my skills in those areas. Looking forward to second session.

Patient Tutor with Exceptional Organized Plan of Study for Students

William is extremely patient as he understands I really need to go back to the basics. I chose William not only because of his reviews and experience, but that it sounded like he had a very organized plan for his students. He has a great program that he works with you on that adapts to your knowledge.

Thorough and structured

I’m using William for the GRE. Very organized and thorough tutor. Places you on a tailored / structured program based on your weaknesses. Patient and clear. I’m looking forward to learning more.

Patient and experienced tutor

I recently tutored with William for my GMAT and was stuck around the 650 range. With a little over a month's work I was able to crack 700 with his guidance. William is a very patient tutor and will do his best to cater to his students. He’s also very experienced and easy to talk to. To be honest, I was very skeptical in my ability to crack 700 up to the very last second of seeing the score on my screen. He believed that I had the ability even when I had my doubts. Haha I am by all means a very slow paced test taker. I need time to do my problems and understand. William helped me realize a lot of my mistakes were because I was trying to do the problems too quickly, making mistakes. I ended up slowing my pace down to make sure I got the questions in the first half of the test right, which I think helped bring up my score a lot. William has his own website and program he created with which you will use should you decide to tutor with him. This program is extremely useful and was one of the reasons I chose him over other tutors. The programs consists of a large question bank of OG questions with explanations for each! Yep, amazing. His program is very nifty for review and practice especially if you aren’t very organized. It also keeps an error log of your incorrect answers and you will be prompted to answer the questions again after a certain period of time. It’s basically a self-built study guide for you catered to you. Highly recommend. Thank you, William!

Intuitive and Clear Tutor

I worked with William for nearly six months on GMAT prep. As a background, I have never excelled at standardized test-taking and was a shoo-in for a sub-600 score on a good day. Through his explanation of key principles and knowledge of the GMAT strategy necessary to achieve a high score, I raised my score (from practice exams to the real thing) by 180 points! He is remarkably patient and willing to accommodate bookings around hectic work schedules. He outlined a timeline of when it would be most important to devote extra study-time to be ready for test day. He is the piece-of-mind I never had on my undergraduate standardized exams, but the guide from whom I benefitted tremendously on the GMAT. The value of his instruction cannot be overstated! Have him be your tutor and beat the GMAT.

Patient tutor

We went over some quant math and some basic tools and techniques. He is very patient. He has an online system to track your progress and trouble areas. Looking forward to the next lesson and learning more tricks.

Best tutor I've ever had.

William is an excellent tutor. He goes out of his way to make sure I understand each problem before moving on. William has incredibly effective teaching methods, including reviewing and practicing problems as "homework". My practice tests have improved significantly since I began tutoring with William and my GMAT test will show these same improvements. Highly recommend.
