My name is William and I am passionate about science - Let me share this passion with you! I specialize in constructing personalized programs for MCAT test-preparation as well as AP/IB chemistry and physics.

I grew up in Minnetonka and am currently located just west of Minneapolis. I cater to all courses and age levels and focus on the highest-yielding approach for each of my students.

I recently defended my Master's degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Minnesota. During my time in school, I fell in love with teaching while serving as a teaching assistant. I began coaching students in my free time and have enjoyed it immensely!

To date, I have completed over three-thousand chemistry, physics, biology and math sessions and personally scored in the 97th percentile of the physical sciences portion of the MCAT! I approach each and every session as a unique opportunity to enliven the passion for science in each of my students.

I have a strong footing in the sciences with an undergrad in chemical and biological engineering and a master's in biomedical engineering. I began teaching in graduate school during several lab instructor positions and enjoyed it immensely. I have been coaching high-school and college level chemistry and physics for four years and focus on targeting "sticking" points in the curriculum that prevent students from excelling.

I have completed a BS In Chemical engineering and build off of this mastery in my graduate degree in bio-medical engineering and computational physics. I have continued to teach many of the topics of chemical engineering, including thermodynamics and mass and energy transport phenomena. I have also used these skills as a professional engineering consultant.

MCAT

MCAT

I have a strong footing in the sciences with an undergrad in chemical and biological engineering and a masters' in biomedical engineering. I have been coaching MCAT for just over a year and have coached college level sciences for four years. I have taken the MCAT and scored well over the 90th percentile. I am well-versed in the MCAT exam mechanics and help each of my students to see which facets are problematic for them. For each student, I create a unique study program and coach them with it through exam day.

Knowledgeable and patient

My daughter has been working with William over Skype, and it has been very successful! He has been very patient with her, as she is on the autistic spectrum, and she can be frustrating to work with. She has had two lessons with him now, and is feeling much more confident. He has been very flexible with his schedule, and reached out to us in order to be prepared to cover the materials that my daughter wanted help with. We are very happy to have found him!

Helpful Mcat

Directed my studying more towards specifics of what I need. Lots of passage practice and review. Gave a bunch of useful tips and items to use. I will definitely be using William as a tutor for more sessions leading up to my MCAT exam on the 24th of August.

Great tutor, organized and patient

I contacted William after my original tutor failed to show up to our meetings. I started preparing for the MCAT one month prior of meeting with William. The MCAT entails a ton of content and I found myself lost in all the material. Within our first session, William managed to analyze all my material, strength and weaknesses and helped me come up with a game plan. He is experienced with coaching people for the MCAT and knows how to teach difficult material and passages. Williams truly loves teaching and is willing to help you with anything you have trouble with. He is very involved and makes sure you get the best out of each session. I am glad that William will be coaching me for this very important exam. I highly recommend him to anyone that finds themselves lost in all the MCAT material. GREAT TUTOR!

10/10 would recommend

William does not mess around. If you've got goals but you're not the person to iron out fine details, Will's the tutor for you. He has a clear vision of where you need to go with your progression. On top of this, he's an insanely patient man and should either win an Oscar for keeping a straight face during your rough patches or is the great great grandson of Mother Theresa. TBD. Elite MCAT tutoring is no exaggeration.

Ankita, 24 lessons with William

Very helpful!

I contacted William about 3 weeks before my MCAT test date because I was really struggling with the reading section. He is an incredible tutor, especially for something as challenging and frustrating as the MCAT. He responds very quickly, is flexible about timing, and is extremely prepared. Not only does he know all the information but he knows how to teach it. He gave me handouts when I was stuck on a concept, walked me through practice problems and helped me with test taking strategy. He is exceptionally patient and understanding. Even though I started working with him only on the reading and analysis section, he helped me with psych, bio, chem and physics too. Working with him gave me the confidence you need to be able to succeed on the MCAT!

Helpful, accommodating, quick to respond, and very patient!

William was wonderful! I had a chemistry emergency and needed to submit an assignment within a few hours. My usual tutor was unavailable and I was at a complete loss until William responded to my tutoring request! He stayed on Skype with me until midnight and explained all of solubility to me. An expensive evening, but I really learned the material and submitted my assignment on time!

Very Intelligent and Personable!

William was an outstanding tutor that was willing to meet my needs in helping me study for the MCAT. He was very energetic and developed a tailored schedule that allowed me to succeed. I personally had trouble with the Verbal Reasoning Section, yet after my sessions with William I’d say it was my best subject. Overall, I can’t say how grateful I am for all William has done for me. Truly a great tutor and person all around.

Drake, 12 lessons with William

Amazing tutor

William is a FANTASTIC physics tutor. My son has some special needs (on the autistic spectrum) and was failing his physics course. After 3 tutoring sessions, he took a test and received a 90%. William is patient and developed a trusting relationship with my son very quickly. I can't say enough about how talented William is in connecting and working with students.

Interested in tutoring, reliable, clear communicator, positive attitude

I have a lot of content and William was able to help me organize and plan for my certification exam. He is very patient and aware of different learning styles. He was interested and engaged in the content for the entire session. William went above and beyond by reviewing my content before coming to the session. He has all the traits one needs in a tutor reliable, clear communicator and positive attitude. I have already scheduled more sessions- great experience.
