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 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.

Great Teacher

William was very knowledgeable and helpful. He was engaging and in the first lesson itself, he gave many tips and tricks that are exceedingly useful.

Goes above and beyond...

William has been my daughter’s tutor for couple months now and his dedication and his enthusiasm shows at every lesson. He sends my daughter extra information or practice tests etc after lessons to make sure she understands what they went over. I wish he was her AP teacher...

Best AP World History teacher!

Mr. Dobbie has taught so much in only a span of one hour. He makes it better to understand and there is so much in the textbook to read and Mr. Dobbie sums it up really well for a better understanding. World History is supposedly a very hard AP class but Mr. Dobbie goes over numerous topics in one lesson that definitely improves your grade plenty. The numerous topics aren’t overwhelming at all because he teaches them thoroughly so I can understand a lot better. Overall, he is a great teacher and I definitely recommend him even if you aren’t struggling in World History.

Last minute, thorough, bright and entertaining tutor

So wonderful that this teacher sent a link to his videos that my son could watch online ahead of time at no charge which he did, including videos from today where he reviewed the material. Then when he actually met with my son on Wyzant, they could review it and they did well. It was so terrific and unique; we highly recommend this teacher tutor.

Awesome Teacher that goes ABOVE and BEYOND

William tutored my daughter for several AP World History courses. After the first lesson, my daughter already felt less anxious about the test. He exceeded our expectations, is very personable and goes above and beyond for his students. He sent her practice tests and videos for her to study outside of the tutoring sessions and answered any questions through email. I highly recommend and hope to be able to work with him again in the future. Excellent Teacher.

Very helpful for test preparation

My daughter had a lesson for AP world history with him. She said he was very knowledgeable and gave her good tips for preparing her AP test. I will definitely book more lessons with him in the future.

Great tricks to ace WHAP!

Mr. D. taught me many useful tips and tricks to keep in mind while writing WHAP free response questions and his experience as a reader and grader really enhanced the lesson!
