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.

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.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Thus far, William has honed in on my weaknesses and helped me mitigate the behaviors that are detrimental to scoring in the 700s. I look forward to my continued work with William.

Pat, 7 lessons with William

Excellent tutor with real GMAT knowledge and individually tailored lessons

I took about a dozen lessons with William over the course of two months, and he helped me pull my GMAT score up from 660 to 710, with what felt like minimal effort from me. His online meetings work great, and he tailors the questions you receive so that they are appropriately challenging. He also provides optional homework, so that the lessons can be spent reviewing questions you know you need help on, rather than just working on questions with him there if you need him. He has great insight and tips for the GMAT, and I doubt there is a better instructor out there.

John, 10 lessons with William

Great tutoring method, very effecting, helped me raise my score by 50 pts in 6 lessons

William is a patient tutor. He helped me hone in on my weaknesses and really improve my quant concepts and skills . I improved my GMAT score and was accepted into my #1 choice. I highly recommend William for GMAT tutoring.

Mike, 6 lessons with William

Patient, knowledgable, and effective tutlr

William was a godsend for GRE prep --- he broke down the concepts and provided plenty of problem sets to help you get the score you want. I would 100% recommend him to anyone looking for a quality GRE/GMAT tutor.

Harrison, 4 lessons with William

Great process for helping you focus on the areas you need help the most

I worked with William over the period of several months. He helped me significantly improve both my quant and verbal scores helping me achieve a higher score than I was even targeting. William is patient and flexible, willing to accommodate your needs and requests and work around your schedule. I recommend William for any GMAT tutoring.

Ryan, 25 lessons with William

Very patient and explains in detail

I was comfortable knowing that William would guide me through the material and teach me ways of processing these questions.

Exactly What I Needed, Just in Time for the Exam

TL:DR William has a practiced, methodical system in place to improve your score. He takes you where you are and develops your skill from there. I went from a Manhattan Prep practice test low score of 630 to a test day score of 730 (45Q, 46V). Read on for more details: When I came to William for tutoring, I had all background material read and about a month of practice problems under my belt from both Manhattan Prep and an Official Guide (think 200+). However, my scores up to that point were 710, 640, 630, and 680 on Manhattan Prep tests. While MP tests are known to be more difficult than the real thing, with 700+ as my goal and my test scheduled a month away, I wasn't sure what to do. William took me where I was and built my skill from there. The first lesson is very constructive and consists of finding your current percentile, whether 1st or 99th. You offer your target score, and William candidly assesses how realistic the goal is given the time frame. After that initial lesson, you set up a schedule (William was very accommodating. I felt bad one week when he agreed to a lesson on Saturday AND 4th of July) and off you go. You complete practice problems under his supervision during the lesson and you get a set of explanations to review and homework to complete after each session. What I felt most helpful was the ability to think out loud. I knew the GMAT could be cracked, but it felt like I was missing some important piece of the puzzle. Doing practice problems on my own did not allow me to identify where I was thinking an incorrect way or heading down the wrong path. The hardest part about the GMAT is identifying what the test really wants you to see about a problem and dissecting its components & difficulty. William was able to jump in after I hit a wall or redirect if I was heading down the wrong road. Apart from this mid-problem assistance, his explanations offer shortcuts and insights I never encountered in other resources. His way of thinking about things shone light on new techniques and ways to concept problems. After 4 weeks of these lessons (and reviewing the explanations in-depth and completing the homework), and additional practice test scores of 710, 720, 680, and 740, test day arrived on July 8th. Very happy to report a score of 730 on test day! 45Q, 46V. Thank you for all your help, William!

Knowledgeable and an awesome tutor!

He helped me answer the questions that I did not know and was extremely helpful I can not wait to learn more from my next session. I would recommend him to anyone who is wanting to take the LSTAT and needs help.

Martina, 2 lessons with William

Knowledgeable with clear explanations

William is helping me with LSAT test preparation. He clearly explains how to approach questions and how to survey the answers to find the correct one. He also provides training based on individual strengths and weaknesses instead of just a general overview.

George, 1 lesson with William

Efficient and disciplined tutor for GMAT Quant - RESULTS!!

William has a really useful bespoke system for diagnosing and addressing weak areas in GMAT. He helped me move from 39 to 48 on Quant in two weeks. An insane improvement made possible by William's streamlined approach. Online sessions can be really valuable it turns out!! Also William is a super friendly, agreeable guy :)
