About William

I graduated with a BA in Neuropsychology with honors (cum laude) from the University of Pennsylvania in 2010.

Last year I was a full time teacher for the SAT abroad in Spain. Before that I also tutored students.

When I took the test in 2006 I received the following scores: 770 V | 750 M | 760 W. More recently I have been administered a number of full length practice tests and have never received below a 780 on any section. I also applied, and was accepted, to a large number of universities. Because I've also worked as an admissions counselor I can also offer a great deal of insight into you or your child's chances at a given school.

I have found that connecting with students on a personal level to be key in capturing their attention and keeping them motivated to garner the score they are after.

I can travel to you or give the lesson in my apartment in Center City.

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.

College Counseling

I provided admissions and college counseling for Club Ivy in Spain from 2011-2012 and for Y2 Academy in the Philadelphia area from 2012-2015.

GRE

I am a UPenn graduate, and current PhD student, offering GRE tutoring services in the Center City area. I have been tutoring the GRE for 4 years and use the Manhattan prep materials as well as my own custom materials tailored to the student's strengths and weaknesses.

I have sat the GRE exam twice, most recently in October of 2013 and received a 169 verbal, 165 math and 6.0 on the essay.
