About William

I am a full-time, professional GMAT, LSAT and GRE tutor. I have logged over 2,000 hours on the Wyzant platform and I consider myself an expert. I can provide an entire course or act as a supplement to your current studies. Regardless of where you are in the process - whether you've already taken the exam and not yet reached your target score, taken a course but didn't learn as much as you thought you would, starting from square one or somewhere in between - I will position you to excel on test day.

Working with me, you will learn how to approach every question type. Recent educational research shows that answering questions, as opposed to listening to lectures, dramatically increases retention of new knowledge. I train students to quickly recognize question types and break questions down into manageable steps. These methods go far beyond typical strategies such as picking numbers and plugging in answer choices. With my training, my students know exactly what to do with every question that shows up on the exam.

My style is efficient, direct, and effective and I enjoy helping others achieve their objectives. I am friendly, but at the same time I take the training very seriously and I like to work with motivated people.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

GMAT

I consider myself a GMAT expert in all five of the question types. I can provide an entire course or act as a supplement to your current studies. I maintain a top student rating receive positive reviews like those that follow. My experience in over 1,000 private GMAT sessions over more than 2,000 hours on the Wyzant platform alone qualifies me as one of the top GMAT tutors available.

I make clear how a limited set of underlying principles and practices are the keys to the ability to answer the questions correctly. Knowing the cues that should alert the student to which principle to apply at each step is fundamental to my tutoring strategy. I assign homework that is coordinated with the overall program and review it with my students.

Many students are finding that it is better to employ a more qualified, experienced GMAT tutor online than one who happens to be nearby. With screen sharing, the experience is just as though they are sitting next to their tutors, and once they have tried it, they rarely go back to in-person meetings. I offer a free 20 minute demonstration of how that works.

GRE

I consider myself a GRE expert in all of the question types. I can provide an entire course or act as a supplement to your current studies. I maintain a top student rating receive positive reviews like those that follow and are in my Wyzant profile.

I make clear how a limited set of underlying principles and practices are the keys to the ability to answer the questions correctly. Knowing the cues that should alert the student to which principle to apply at each step is fundamental to my tutoring strategy. I provide follow-up material for review following each session, vocabulary flashcards to help you master the sentence completion questions, and I assign homework that is coordinated with the overall program and review it with my students. I can also help with structuring, writing and editing the essay.

LSAT

I consider myself an LSAT expert in all of the question types. I can provide an entire course or act as a supplement to your current studies.

Microsoft Access

The tutor earned the highest score ever achieved in the United States on a competency test and has used the program extensively in his own businesses. He has designed Access based applications for an Internet commerce site selling hundreds of books daily, a real estate brokerage, an art gallery, and a Hong Kong company tutoring students in GMAT, SAT and SSAT Preparation as well as Business English (his own business).

Microsoft Access is a database management system from Microsoft that combines the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical user interface and software-development tools. Software developers and data architects can use Microsoft Access to develop application software, and "power users" can use it to build software applications.

Students of this course will receive one-on-one instruction on how to utilize the program to achieve their desired goals, which can be specific to a particular application, or alternatively can be to attain broad competence in the use of the program. Depending on the student’s needs and interests, this can include:

• Setting up and managing tables including relationships among tables, determining when tables are needed and when they are extraneous;
• Designing queries including queries to filter data, to add data, delete, data, change data, and create new tables from data in other tables, how to create queries that filter only when specified conditions are met;
• Designing and managing forms to display data, make data editable or not, create events to occur when certain actions occur such as pressing buttons or changing the data in fields, formatting forms such that data is displayed in the desired format, creating fields that display or are enabled only when specified conditions are met;
• Designing reports that display data without allowing users to change the data, grouping data such that reports contain a hierarchy of data;
• Designing and managing macros to perform a series of events when activated by controls on forms, events that can activate action queries, open forms, set properties on forms, set values in fields on forms, activate other macros, and events that are conditioned on specified circumstances such as the state of controls on forms or the results of a query.
