About William

I am a state certified math teacher (M.A.T in Math from Bowie State University) with a diversified and wide range of teaching/tutoring experience, from teaching math in high school to tutoring in Spanish/English overseas.

My experience as a teacher taught me how really important it is for students in today's world to have a solid background in algebra if they are to succeed in college and beyond. Tutoring provides me the opportunity to make a real difference in the student's learning by tailoring instruction according to her/his needs, and taking the time to do it.

I tutor students for the purpose of improving grades, getting ahead, doing well on exams, preparing for college, among other things. My teaching method entails the understanding of concepts rather than just processes and procedures. My goal is also to encourage and motivate students to learn and build their confidence, and in the case of math be able to enjoy it enough that they don't have to hate it.

I am available mostly in the evenings however, I try to be flexible with scheduling. I will also travel to a location that is more convenient for the student.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 in high school and tutored it as well.

Algebra 2

I have taught algebra II in high school, and tutored students for several years.

Prealgebra

I am a state certified teacher that has taught this subject in high school and tutored as well. My strong belief is that students must develop a solid math foundation in order to do well in upper level math/science subjects, prealgebra is the first stepping stone.

Precalculus

As a certified math teacher I have tutored kids in Trig/Pre-Calculus.

Spanish

I am a native speaker from South America that has had the opportunity to live, teach and travel extensively to several Hispanic countries, such as Peru, Mexico, Puerto Rico, among others. It was as a result of my travels and close relationships with members of our Hispanic Community that I became quite familiarized with the way Spanish is spoken in different Latin American regions.
I have also worked as an interpreter and translator for different companies/organizations. One of these jobs involved working as a contractor for the U.S. Govt. translating documents from English to Spanish. My last Govt. (DoD) job, consisted of tutoring and assisting H.S. students with homework on all school subjects, but mainly in math and Spanish. I am currently working as a Spanish interpreter for a MD Public School system.

Very Pleased — My 7th grade son needed help in Math. After his first tutoring session he came very happy, said everything he was having trouble with was making a lot more sense and did the rest of his math homework in record time . Mr. William went above and beyond to make sure my son understood the math concept he is working on at school. We are very pleased and highly recommend him to any other student/pare ...
