I TEACH YOU HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SCORES ON THE GRE, GMAT or LSAT.
MATH TUTORS CANNOT HELP YOU LEARN THE TRICKS, STRATEGIES or TECHNIQUES that help you get the highest score possible, nor can logicians teach you best how to improve your LSAT score. While I've mastered the underlying math and other tested material and obtained perfect scores on the GMAT and GRE and an almost perfect score on the LSAT, why would you care about that?

I TEACH YOU HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SCORES ON THE GRE, GMAT or LSAT.
MATH TUTORS CANNOT HELP YOU LEARN THE TRICKS, STRATEGIES or TECHNIQUES that help you get the highest score possible, nor can logicians teach you best how to improve your LSAT score. While I've mastered the underlying math and other tested material and obtained perfect scores on the GMAT and GRE and an almost perfect score on the LSAT, why would you care about that? My sole goal is to teach YOU how to improve YOUR score, starting from where YOU ARE NOW. If you're struggling and need a score just to get past the roadblock one of these tests can present, I'll only teach you ONLY the math you need--the math that recurs most often on the test. Conversely, if you are shooting for a very high score, I can help you hone your skills and pinpoint any weaknesses. For the LSAT, if you're struggling or have very limited time before your test, I'll focus ONLY on the most common diagramming techniques, logical reasoning traps and reading comprehension shortcuts to get you through the test so you can go on to more important things.

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 Ph.D. theses and written and/or edited many legal briefs, personal statements for college applications and fiction. I succeeded in law school and if you're bewildered by law school professors who "hide the ball" by not really telling you how t

GMAT

I have taught the GMAT to students in greater Miami (where I owned a large and successful tutoring and college prep business), 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 GMAT has been administered via the computer, so now I can't make the claim that I've seen every single question that GMAC has asked. But my knowledge of the test remains deep and broad, my strategies powerful and simple. I've taught the GMAT to classes of up to 150 students (in South Florida), through several well-known test prep companies, and one-on-one as I do now.

I attended a Big 10 Law School (Indiana), received a trophy for getting the highest score in Contracts and was graduated in the top 5% of my class. I've tutored law students both in the first year courses but also in many of the electives. I have written many appellate briefs, and know legal writing well.

I have taught the LSAT 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 LSAT has changed a bit and the LSAC has altered the test's scoring scale, but the actual test has not seen significant changes in many years. Yet I've seen every single question that the LSAT has published since about 1990. My knowledge of the test is deep and broad; my strategies powerful and simple. I've taught the LSATS to classes of 150, through several well-known test prep companies, and one-on-one as I do now, mostly for fun and the reward of helping deserving people get past this annoying hurdle and on to better things!

Extremely Helpful!

I am taking the LSAT in the next few weeks and William was exceptionally helpful. I am my own worst enemy and get flustered very easily by certain topics. He was able to help me break them down and be way less stressed by everything. I highly suggest using him if you need some help!

Lily, 1 lesson with William

Knowledgeable and easy to work with

Bill has applicable material to work with, and he’s able to review all problem types in a thoughtful way. He is also able to provide insight on issues and concepts that are likely to appear on the exam.

Joseph, 1 lesson with William

Fun learning

William is super friendly. I had fun discussing a case which I had to brief and he was able to answer my questions and guide me to the right direction.

Veronica, 3 lessons with William

Patient and knowledgeable tutor

Working with William is great. He knows the in's and out's of the GRE. He has plenty of prep material to help you practice for the test. I am confident that I will score better when I take the test because of William's help.

Maria, 7 lessons with William

Great tutor!

He hit right on what I needed to work on and how to go about it. Really made me feel like I could understand math and do it! He explained each problem thoroughly and could explain it in different ways so I was sure to understand the "why" behind it.

Laura, 9 lessons with William

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.

Derek, 1 lesson with William

Excellent!

Helping my son up his GMAT score. William is excellent!!! Relates well to him, adjusts to his busy schedule and most importantly is helping. Very Very happy!!!

Braden, 7 lessons with William

Very helpful with explanations.

He talked through Math and Verbal GRE problems, explaining step by step where I had made mistakes and helping to find trends in the types of errors I was making.
