Bio

I have been working in engineering for over 15 years, as well as writing science fiction and fantasy novels, and teaching Wado-Ryu karate. At my engineering job I have helped many interns with the basics of becoming a successful engineer. In my writing career, I critique and provide feedback on up to 5 submissions of up to 5000 words a week, helping new and experienced writers hone their craft to come up with the best stories. I have also taught students from age 8 to 64 how to learn karate,...

I have been working in engineering for over 15 years, as well as writing science fiction and fantasy novels, and teaching Wado-Ryu karate. At my engineering job I have helped many interns with the basics of becoming a successful engineer. In my writing career, I critique and provide feedback on up to 5 submissions of up to 5000 words a week, helping new and experienced writers hone their craft to come up with the best stories. I have also taught students from age 8 to 64 how to learn karate, which is an excellent way to focus the mind and become more disciplined.

I love seeing my students come to a new understanding of the subject they're studying, and following their progress from beginning to end of a course. I've personally raised over ten students to black belt, a five-year journey, and I've followed along with writing student as their first books are published. I love seeing students succeed!

I have been using algebra, geometry, and trigonometry on a daily basis for over 20 years, and I understand not only how to use equations, but why the equations do what they do and how to get answers in real life, when the problems don't have a simple example like in textbooks.

I have a Master's in Mechanical Engineering, and use it every day, whether I am at work, or simply observing the world. One of the best things I learned is how to learn, and once you know that, anything is open to you. I have worked with many different aspects of mechanical engineering, from DIY projects where it's important to understand tolerances and variability, to releasing engineering drawings with GEOTOL requirements, to talking with suppliers about creating parts, to simple force and balance equations. I can give you great insight into what being a mechanical engineer really means.

I have been writing and editing my own books, and critiquing and editing others books for about ten years. I have ten science fantasy books published, and I am deeply involved in the craft of writing from the mechanical side all the way to advanced p

Microsoft Excel

I've worked with Microsoft Excel for over twenty years, from the 1998 version all the way through current. I know how to use functions, import data, write VBA script and run macros, and I am also a data analyst who uses Excel for condensing large volumes of data in easily read and well formatted results.
Project Management,

Project Management

I have been involved in corporate product introduction for 15+ years, and am familiar with the pitfalls of project management. I have seen projects fail or run late due to bad management and taken note of areas that could be improved. I have run one major engineering product introduction on time and in budget, and have published 10 books, always staying within publishing deadlines. I also routinely design small projects for customers and routinely deliver results with a week.

Writing

I have published ten books and novellas so far and written even more books and short stories that are unpublished. I have been a published writer for five years, but wrote extensively for the last twenty five years. I am very familiar with making a cohesive story structure whether it is a email, a presentation, a short story, or a three hundred-page book.

Professional and subject matter expert

I was so disappointing with 3 failed sessions on Wyzant and almost gave up. William is very knowledgeable, actually worked my assignment instead of telling stories like others to kill time and charge students. William was quick, excellent with excel, pivot table, charts etc. I am know a firm believer of Wyzant again and highly recommend Williams to anyone. I went in knowing he had only 4.1 stars but he’s definitely a 5 star!! Never judge a cover by the books because the other tutors with 5 stars came no where close to Williams expertise and help. Highly recommend!! A++++++
