If your child needs to take the AP World Make up exam and is concerned about the process/content/writing-please reach out!

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.

I can also offer guidance for the IB Extended Essay in History and the Internal Assessment in History

IMPORTANT: AP WORLD has 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.

In addition to one-on-one, I am also running online group sessions at half my normal cost for an hour. Reach out for more information if you're interested.

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.

Great tutor! Very knowledgeable and kind

We feel very lucky to have found such a wonderful teacher! William is very knowledgeable and encouraging. My daughter is learning so much from him. They are working on writing and test taking skills for DBQs at this time and my daughter is gaining a lot of knowledge and confidence from William’s teaching and feedback. He is funny and energetic and my daughter looks forward to her sessions with William. We are hoping to work with William more.
