About William

Concerning my verbal skills, I have an excellent grasp of English grammar, practical literary style, and logical structure. My writings have been published in internationally-recognized professional journals (Journal of Medicine and Philosophy, Journal of Medical Ethics, Faith and Philosophy, etc.). I have taught college courses for over twenty years. I scored 99th percentile on the MAT. More importantly, I am patient and able to explain the rules of English and the subtleties of writing style so that anyone can understand them. I have experience teaching or tutoring English to high school students and college students.

Concerning my math skills, I attended graduate school in mathematics and have taught algebra and trigonometry to college students. I scored a perfect 800 on the Graduate Record Exam quantitative section.

I have been teaching online for over ten years through a community college.

I have two daughters, one in middle school and one in high school. I understand the need for reliability in a tutor.

My teaching method is always to help students build on what they already know. I am always looking for ways to connect the new material being presented to things already familiar to the students. In that way, the students can understand and remember what they are learning and can move on quickly to the next task.

I want to build a justifiable confidence in students as they hone their new skills. As students see positive results from their effort and begin to feel a sense of control over the subject matter, they will be able to complete tests and quizzes more efficiently with less stress.

My letters of recommendation includes the following comment, “Dr. H. has exhibited mastery of his subject and complete fluency in working in the online course environment.”

Please contact me through the WyzAnt email system. From there we can discuss time and location. I am available to tutor on most days and would enjoy working with you.

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.

Bible Studies

I have a Ph.D. in philosophy. I have studied the Bible for years as a believing Christian and as a professional philosopher. I designed and taught a senior-level college course in Christian philosophy, which, of course, heavily referenced the Bible. I have published two papers on theology in Faith and Philosophy, the journal of the Society of Christian Philosophers. I read Koine Greek, as so can, and do, read the New Testament with reference to the available Greek editions. I have designed and taught several discipleship courses for my local church contrasting biblical precepts with current secular ideologies.
