About William

I have spent twenty three years educating young people as a middle school and high school mathematics instructor, specializing in calculus but capable of instructing all levels of math. My students' test scores are phenomenal, frequently the highest scores in the state of Tennessee. I am that rare teacher who is capable of making math fun, interesting, and applicable.

My style is engaging and passionate because I love mathematics, a passion that is passed along to those who I teach and tutor. For the students I educate I am able to pinpoint areas of weakness that need strengthening, sharpening prerequisite skills to make learning new topics more efficient. I have the ability to take any difficult topic and break it into smaller, easier parts, offering strategies and techniques that will simplify a student's approach to a problem and escalate their success rate.

I have classroom experience teaching Prealgebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Precalculus, AP Calculus AB, and AP Calculus BC.

Choose me as your tutor so that I can make math clear and understandable and most likely enjoyable!

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.

Calculus

I have taught and tutored AP Calculus for almost thirty years (1989-present) with tremendous results and a passion that is infectious among students. My AP exam scores were the highest in Tennessee in eight different years since 2001 and consistently ranked among the best in the nation. The hundreds of students with whom I have worked have averaged a 4.5 on the AP test. I can tutor both the AB and BC levels as well as Calc 2.

Elementary Math

I have tutored elementary-level students in mathematics over the past eight years and have a very firm understanding of what concepts are needed to solidify a strong foundation for topics that will be addressed in middle school. I always find ways to connect new material to existing understanding and make math relevant, understandable, and no longer intimidating.

Geometry

I taught high school Geometry for a decade and have considerable experience making mathematics easy and enjoyable for young people.

Precalculus

I have taught Honors Precalculus at the high school level for 17 years, even serving on a panel in my school district to develop an updated precalculus curriculum for the county. My students' scores on the end-of-year examination have consistently been the highest in the district and are frequently the highest in the state of Tennessee (according to an independent university study on the most successful school districts in upper-level mathematics in Tennessee). Although I use a textbook as a resource, I have completely designed my own curriculum, fine-tuned over the years to perfection to achieve maximum scores and impeccable readiness for AP Calculus.

Very Pleased

My son went into the session not too happy with me for setting this up, but came out with a smile on his face. He was very comfortable with Mr. W., and I believe he will look forward to the next session!
