Currently accepting new students for the 2022 exam year!

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.

Review for William D

William is an excellent tutor! He is super nice and helpful. I have often struggled with AP World, especially stimulus-based multiple choice questions despite lots of studying. Once I started working with William, I improved significantly on the multiple choice questions. He gave me some useful strategies and worked intensively with me through past exam questions to sharpen my multiple choice question skills. As a result, I got a good score on the AP exam. Not only did William do a good job at helping me with AP World, but he also made me more interested in history. He was very enthusiastic when teaching and he treated me like a friend, which made every lesson very enjoyable. I highly recommend him to students who struggle with AP World History!

A wonderful, focused and chill tutor

William was the perfect tutor for my daughter. She wanted review and technical tips on how to take the World History AP, and he was the person for the job! She loved his vibe and his energy. She feels as though she got an enormous amount of out their sessions. It was entirely worth it. He helped sharpen her writing and made her feel less adrift in the material. He was flexible with timing and utterly reliable. I recommend him without reservation.

Always reliable

Energetic and very knowledgeable tutor. Uses his tutor hour really well. My first daughter worked with him on APWH last year and received 5 on the exam. Now my second daughter started with him. Highly recommend.

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!
