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 has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 1 question submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Highly recommend! Fantastic tutor!
William was an absolutely fantastic tutor. I met with William several times to prepare for my final exam in an advanced college linear algebra class. William is incredibly knowledgeable and his clear, concise explanations were exactly what I needed. It was especially impressive because I never had to send messages ahead of time giving him specific concepts or problems I wanted to review. No matter what topic I brought up, William had the answers. Highly recommend A+++.Judy, 6 lessons with William
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
William was very patient, helpful, knowledgeable on diff equation subject and problems. Also, responded promptly and tutored with limited advance notice. He is also very technology savvy - also appreciated! Absolutely planning to set up more regular tutor schedule! Thank you!Ginger, 39 lessons with William
Knowledgeable and Helpful with Linear Algebra
He allowed me to learn at my pace and taught accordingly. He was very clear with explanations and ensured that every step towards the solution had a purpose and was correct. I enjoyed my first session a lot!Nathan, 1 lesson with William
Patient and Supportive Tutor!
I started taking a discrete math class that previous students said was very hard. Once I started the class, I knew I needed help. It is very hard to find a math tutor who is good at explaining discrete math concepts because the class is a smorgasbord of loosely related math subjects. Thankfully I found William. He is great at taking abstract concepts and breaking them down into easier step-by-step processes. As well, he is very patient and supportive. If you’re taking discrete math, I can’t recommend William enough!Todd, 30 lessons with William
William is a fantastic tutor, who explained some tough concepts in terms I could understand. He also worked with me through some tricky problems, and showed me a few new tools for evaluating multivariable limits.Darcy, 4 lessons with William
Very helpful tutor
William was extraordinarily helpful. He helped me break through a mental logjam that had plagued me for months. about an obscure area of abstract algebra. When I again need a tutor, I will use William.Greg, 2 lessons with William
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
