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!

One thing that math students often despair of is knowing what the math they are learning is *for*. "When will I ever use this?" is a dreaded question among teachers and tutors alike. Being able to show real-world connections is key to keeping students interested in what might be otherwise dry material. Students frequently have not learned to place math questions in the context of the world they are familiar with. For young students, this can mean the use of physical models to understand operations and concepts; for students a little older, this can mean contextualizing the history of what they are learning and including the why and how rather than just the what. For teenagers and adults, this usually means analyzing an object, situation or process that they are familiar with on a surface level and using the tool being studied to think about it one level deeper.

The other issue commonly plaguing math students is the idea that there is just a

Discrete Math

Discrete Math is the first time most students encounter proofs in a serious context, but they form the backbone of math education post-calculus. I have years of experience working with and tutoring in higher mathematical subjects, but for the most part, all of the different structures of proofs are taught in discrete math classes, and so it's important for students to get a solid grounding.

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!

Consistently Excellent

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!!

Clutch

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.

The Best!

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!

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.

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.

Data Wiz

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.

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.
