About William

I earned my B.S. in Neuroscience from Duke University in 2014, where I graduated with distinction, and began teaching MCAT courses for The Princeton Review soon after. As a certified instructor for both Chemistry and the Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills sections, I taught classroom courses and tutored students in 1-on-1 sessions. I have scored in the 93rd percentile on the MCAT and the 99th percentile on the DAT. In addition to my time as an instructor, I have also worked for 6+ years as a researcher, and have multiple abstracts and publications. I am currently seeking admission to the University of Iowa's School of Dentistry.

I very much enjoy helping students realize their potential, whether it be in the classroom or on an admissions test. I have developed many tips and tricks for making sense of scientific concepts that are feared by many students. Whatever your learning style may be, I will tailor my lessons and examples to best utilize your thought processes.

While I have the most experience with chemistry, my strength as an instructor is being able to transcend subject boundaries and relate scientific material across disciplines. I have found that understanding how certain chemical reactions occur can help students studying cell metabolism, while a knowledge of momentum is necessary to analyze gases. By breaking down concepts into their most simple form, you will be able to apply what you learn in our sessions to multiple subjects!

As your tutor, I will work hard to make sure you get the very most for your time and money. With your hard work, I can help you achieve whatever your goals may be!

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.

Biology

I graduated with a neuroscience degree in 2014, which required a wide array of biology courses, including molecular biology, genetics and evolution, cell biology, and anatomy. I have worked for the past three years as a microbiology research assistant. I scored in the 99th percentile on the biology portion of the DAT.

Chemistry

I completed coursework in General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry at Duke University. I taught General Chemistry for the Princeton Review as part of their MCAT course. I scored in the 95th percentile on the Physical Sciences portion of the MCAT and the 99th percentile of the General Chemistry portion of the DAT. I have experience teaching chemistry in both a classroom and private tutoring environment.
