MIT PhD for Tutoring in Math, Physics, and Other Fields
I am available to tutor any area of mathematics: arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, statistics, linear algebra, differential equations, etc. I can also help with more advanced college-level topics. My experience with advanced mathematics gives me insight into how different mathematical concepts are connected, which means that I can present these ideas in several different ways.

I am available to tutor any area of mathematics: arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, statistics, linear algebra, differential equations, etc. I can also help with more advanced college-level topics. My experience with advanced mathematics gives me insight into how different mathematical concepts are connected, which means that I can present these ideas in several different ways. So if one way of looking at a problem doesn't work for you, I can find others! I remember my own experience learning math and have worked with many students in the past, so I am very patient and willing to try a variety of approaches.
I hold a bachelor's degree from UChicago and a doctorate from MIT, both in mathematics. I am available to tutor Latin, physics, and all levels of math. Outside of academics, I am an avid tournament chess player, and I enjoy running and cycling.
From my experience teaching math to a range of students, from middle school through college, I know that it does not come easily to everyone. However, I firmly believe that everyone has the capability for mathematical reasoning. Everyone has their own strengths and challenges, and my job as a tutor begins with identifying these. I like to have students work through problems while I guide them and make suggestions, so that I can get a sense of what they understand and what they don't. Then we can build on their knowledge and break down the challenging parts of the problem into smaller, more manageable chunks.
William was a fantastic tutor. He was patient and was able to put concepts into easy to understand terms. I was able to finish the material with a clear understanding. I would recommend him for anyone needing assistance with linear algebra. I will be back for my other Masters courses.Nathan, 1 lesson with William
Gets you there
William was great - focused on the aspects of the problem I did not understand and explained the concept from a different perspective to help comprehension. Excellent support and glad he's in my corner.Shawn, 5 lessons with William
Very knowledgeable - great tutor!!!
William helped me prepare for an exam in my multivariable calculus class. I was able to ask specific questions and get exactly the help I needed. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for math help, particularly in complex areas.Tommy, 3 lessons with William
William is great for Set Theory!
I have had a few sessions with William on Set Theory and he is always a great and knowledgeable tutor. His explanations are thorough and clear. Would definitely recommend William for Set Theory.Petr, 5 lessons with William
Best tutor on Wyzant
I had used numerous tutors before William and they were all very good. But after working with William, there is no chance I'd ever use anyone else. He explains things perfectly and makes subjects that are supposed to be difficult so much easier. Would recommend a million times over.Joshua, 15 lessons with William
The best tutor we have had! William is able to make complicated BC Calculus concepts easy for my son to understand. His grade and morale have improved. We are very grateful to find William!Shaila, 67 lessons with William
William helped show me my mistakes from my last exam and how to properly solve the problems I got wrong.Travis, 1 lesson with William
I reviewed Discrete Mathematics material. My lesson was online and worked very well. William was very pleasant and helpful. William really knows the subject perfectly and takes the time to explain the concepts.Paola, 1 lesson with William
Outstanding Tutor. Far and above the best math tutor I've worked with.
I really hit the jackpot working with William. Very patient and incredibly knowledgeable. For an advanced undergraduate math course, it's rare to find a tutor who can jump into a subject without first reviewing practice problems. As a student on a budget, working with William has been an absolute godsend. We get through two to three times as many problems per session as I've covered with other tutors. Cannot recommend enough.Rachel, 7 lessons with William
Prepared, knowledgeable, and very patient tutor.
William went over a statistics practice exam with me. He came right on time, and was very prepared as he had asked to see the material I was working on in advance so he could better help me during the session. Not only did he walk me through every problem step by step, but also explained when to use certain formulas over others. He wrote down strategies I could use for each problem, and gave new examples or drew pictures to explain further when I couldn't understand a topic. In addition to helping me with the problems on the practice test, he explained nuances and variations of the problems that could appear on my final exam and talked me through those, too. I feel a lot more confident with the material and a lot more prepared for my exam. Thank you, William!Ruja, 2 lessons with William
