I am a certified teacher of Social Studies in the State of Michigan and have taught all Middle School and High School Social Studies courses throughout my career. I am also trained in the Reading Apprenticeship program to help students gain reading strategies and skills for tasks across their curriculum. Currently, I teach Advanced Placement World History and International Baccalaureate History along with being a reader for examinations with both of those organizations. If your child needs extra help preparing for those challenging courses, look no further.***

IMPORTANT: AP WORLD underwent MAJOR curriculum changes for the 2019-20 School year. Make sure ANY tutor you decide to work with is well versed on those changes to help ensure success for your child.

***Note. At this point, I am no longer taking new regular/weekly students. If a one or two-time meeting to provide MC or Essay writing strategies is all you're looking for, please reach out and I'll try to work you into my schedule. Also, if you are interested in being a part of my Pre-Exam weekly practice and review sessions coming this March, please reach out and I'll add you to my list!

Excellent tutor!

My son likes him a lot. He is an excellent teacher and enlights my son's interest in World history. He gave my son some very useful skills for reading and taking tests. I just hope he has more time so we can schedule more classes for my son.

William is Amazing!!

My 15 yr old son wishes that William was his teacher. He explains everything so clearly and makes it easier to comprehend. He is also extremely understanding and great to work with. I would highly recommend him to any student!!

William is the best AP world history prep teacher on the planet

The title is from the words of my daughter who had AP world history lessons with William. (1) William knows world history inside out. There is no question that he does not have an answer to. He can easily elaborate on any random subject and come up with points that you need to remember for the test. (2) William is effective in preparing your AP exam. He tells you what you must know in order to do well on the exam and what you don’t need to prepare beyond certain points. He also teaches you how to score high for certain types of the questions in the exam. What a great value proposition. (3) William has a good work ethic. He is punctual, yet not nickel-and-dime over lesson time. He gives you homework and writes down clear lesson notes for you to refresh. A big time saver! Choose William! You get the most bang for the buck!

Amazing tutor!

William tutored my son in AP World History - his lessons were so engaging that I myself couldn’t help but want to hear more! He knows how to connect with students by putting concepts in relatable terms and helped guide my son to an A on his first long essay writing assignment.

The Best AP World Tutor

William is an amazing tutor who greatly helped my daughter obtain the knowledge she needed for the AP World Exam. Thanks to his exceptional teaching skills, she got a 5 on the exam. Although history is not one of my daughter's favorite subjects, he made it fun and provided her with so much positivity which would not have been possible if it wasn't for him. He gives the absolute best preparation by adapting to the specific needs of your child and allowing them to thrive in the class. I would most definitely recommend William to anyone looking for an AP World tutor!! Thank you SO MUCH for all your help!

Amazing teacher!

My daughter was struggling with her AP World class at the beginning of the year. Since she started working with William, her grades went back up to an A both semesters. William has supported her so much throughout the year, instilling confidence and motivation within her as a student. One of the best advantages of working with William is that he himself is an AP world teacher and is always on top of everything regarding the class. He is not only a great teacher but an incredible mentor and has really helped my daughter reach her academic goals and made her love history! William has also demonstrated amazing support and leadership during the circumstances of COVID-19, helping my daughter successfully navigate the last minute changes of the AP exam. Without a doubt, William is the perfect teacher, he made a monumental difference for my daughter, and I am sure he will continue to do so with many other students. I wish him all the best!

Amazing history teacher and tutor!

William's enthusiasm for history and for teaching more broadly absolutely has an impact on his students. My child really enjoyed working with William in advance of his AP World History exam. I can't think of a finer tutor!

Excellent professor!

Mr. D has been an excellent professor. Knowledge and passion for history defines his teaching success. With few sessions, my daughter was able to assimilate the information she had trouble with since the beginning of the school year. She started to develop a different concept of this subject, a more fun and interesting one. Mr. D tries to explain in a more simple way the most important aspects of each historical time. I will continue to use his services in the future. I only wish our schools can have many Mr. D’s so our children can enjoy and learn more about History.
