Hello, friends! My name is William, and I’m a science and math tutor based out of Las Vegas, NV. I have bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and Physics, and am finishing up my PhD in Physics (with an emphasis in Chemistry and materials science) this fall. With over 10 years of combined teaching and tutoring experience, I’ve taught introductory physics in a college classroom setting, and I have tutored students from age eight to sixty-eight to improve classroom grades, prepare for standardized tests or simply for the joy and personal enrichment of learning.
I firmly believe that the best knowledge comes from doing, and I encourage my students to see math as a tool rather than a task for memorization. Practically, that means that I do no more than half the talking in a tutoring session. Frequently, I will ask students to explain concepts or steps in a problem back to me as a way of seeing how much they understand. I'm not around just to hand out answers to the problem in front of a student -- I'm here to hand out tools to solve problems they haven't even seen yet!
The main issue commonly plaguing math students is the idea that there is just a lot of math to memorize. There is a lot of math out there, true, but every bit of it is built on baby steps while leaning heavily on what you've learned before. Identifying, leveraging and building upon a student's past successes, however small they might seem, is the key to building mathematical confidence.
I'm excited to get to work with you to achieve your personal and academic goals. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson!
William is an excellent tutor. He can explain one problem in different ways so its easier to understand, he also can provide different ways to solve a problem. He is very knowledgeable, patient and friendly. Patricia, MBA candidatelilia, 3 lessons with William
Knowledgable and patient
I liked how William had an easy way of explaining Statistics to me without it seeming overwhelming. I already booked another lesson with him and will continue using him as my tutor for the summer semester! Thank you so much, William!Brooke, 15 lessons with William
We have been working with William for several weeks now, initially just for AP Calculus, but added AP Chemistry as well.. My normally optimistic, curious, and excited, 'A" student was discouraged, losing confidence, and close to failing. William came with a fun, engaging, and easy nature my student connected with well. His commanding understanding of the material, and his ability to teach at the students present level, is amazing!! My students' confidence and enthusiasm are high once again, and her grades have improved radically. Her understanding of theory for both courses is maturing and expanding. William is a first-class tutor with superb subject mastery and communication skill. HIGHLY recommended!!Mauricia, 41 lessons with William
William is responsible for me getting through a Data Analysis course without hating my life. It would be enough as a tutor that he is an expert on the subject, but what sets him apart is his ability to relate the concepts in a way that makes sense for me. He would often explain things in a few different ways to ensure that I fully grasped the concept. If you are on the fence about getting some help, go with William. Think “Headphones” from The Internship with more personality. He is clutch, and I genuinely appreciated his help.Travis, 9 lessons with William
Our ongoing sessions with William continue to be very fruitful. Comprehension is way up and grades are steadily improving. Most importantly, confidence is SOARING! So grateful for this tutor. My student actually looks forward to her sessions!Mauricia, 41 lessons with William
Such a good tutor!
William continues to exceed our hopes and expectations. My student is not only understanding the material, is beginning to ENJOY Calculus. After pre-calc online, knowledge gaps and a fast paced AP Calc course saw her discouraged and defeated. William is patient, creative and has a thorough and thoughtful approach. My daughter is even answering questions in class....and they're correct! Wonderful tutor. So glad we found him.Mauricia, 41 lessons with William
a true answer to prayer.
We began our first lesson today in AP Calculus. VERY intuitive, easy to understand and patient. William is very thorough in assessing current skill level, and ways to improve subject depth/knowledge. His subject mastery is apparent and his encouraging remarks refreshing. Very pleased with his level of professionalism and help.Mauricia, 41 lessons with William
We went over the steps of my assignment that I wasn't fully grasping, He was patient and went through document to show me best steps to complete analysis. Knows his stuff in data ! Planning for future sessions.Jackie, 1 lesson with William
Knowledgeable and communication
William was knowledgeable about the subject matter and was able to communicate it in a way that I could understand. He stepped through the problems and was able to show me how to come to the correct answer.Xan, 3 lessons with William
