About WILLIAM

I have taught test prep for 20 years including the GRE (entry into graduate school), LSAT (law school), GMAT (for "MBA school" entry), and SAT/ACT prep for college entry. I have taught classes and tutored students in Miami, Namibia (Africa), Indiana and the Twin Cities to diverse students and learners. Methods are chosen based on student needs. I work now as a consultant and really enjoy tutoring. Weird, maybe, but it's my idea of a fun break in the work week.

I also can teach math and know how to make learning fun. I have taught Trig, Algebra, Game Theory, Probability and even Calculus to 5th and 6th graders, so I definitely know how to explain difficult subjects simply.

I have also edited PhD theses and written and/or edited many legal briefs, personal statements for college applications and fiction.

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.

GRE

I have taught the GRE to students in greater Miami, Indiana, Minnesota and Namibia (through the US Embassy) since the late 1980s. I've carefully looked at every single written test, published or unpublished, since that time. In the last few years, the GRE has been administered via the computer, so now I can't make the claim that I've seen every single question that ETS has asked. But my knowledge of the test is deep and broad, my strategies powerful and simple. I've taught the GRE to classes of 150, through several well-known test prep companies, and one-on-one as I do now.

Great

He is great at reviewing all the topics I have forgotten since high school and elementary school. I would recommend him to any of my friends. If you can't remember exactly how to do topics such as long division and adding and subtracting fractions, he is great at reviewing those topics with you.
