I have educated and inspired college, high school, and middle school students for twenty five years as a mathematics instructor, specializing in calculus but capable of teaching all levels of math. The quantitative success of my students is phenomenal, consistently among the highest achievement in the state of Tennessee, and I have played an instrumental role in designing curricula for district and state testing. I have also developed my own curriculum for home school students, allowing them to earn official credit for precalculus and calculus.

I am that rare teacher who is capable of making math fun, interesting, and applicable. My style is engaging and passionate because I love and deeply understand mathematics, a passion that is passed along to those I teach and tutor. I am able to pinpoint areas of weakness that need strengthening, sharpening prerequisite skills to make learning new topics easier to absorb. I have the ability to take any difficult concept and break it into smaller, easier parts, offering strategies and techniques that will simplify a student's approach to a problem. Most importantly, I am able to change a student's conception of mathematics, altering their approach to a drastically different method of thought that is far more efficient and allows effortless simplification of even rigorous problems.

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!

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable tutor

William has helped me so much throughout my semester in calculus. He was great at explaining all the problems, making them manageable, and gave me many helpful tips. I would not have gotten through my course successfully had it not been for all of William's help. Greatest tutor I've had by far!

Samantha, 15 lessons with William

GRE tutoring

William was a great GRE tutor, he helped me work through several sections of the quantitative portion that I was struggling with and was always accommodating to my schedule. Would highly recommend!

Matt, 5 lessons with William

Great Tutor

Gabriella always appreciates her geometry lessons, though she does not yet appreciate geometry. Always finds her lessons with Mr. W helpful.

Rachel, 17 lessons with William

Very helpful and excellent tutor!

GREAT tutor for AP AB Calc class. He's very patient and thorough. He made my daughter feel very comfortable. Extremely helpful! We look forward to the next session!

Karen , 4 lessons with William

Mr. William came to the rescue

My daughter was having a difficult time understanding Precalculus from her school's teacher that we decided to seek help. The first lesson was two hours and it was enough to clear up all her confusion about the upcoming test material. We will continue with Mr. William.

Nancy, 7 lessons with William

Exceptional skills!

William's teaching style clicked with my daughter unlike any previous teacher or tutor ever has. He helped her raise her ACT math score 5 points from one test to the next. It was an amazing increase for a girl who hates math and has never felt competent in the subject. It really boosted her confidence. Her new ACT score places her safely in scholarship range so that we can afford the college she loves.

Dana, 15 lessons with William

Intuitive leadership

William instinctively knows where to meet my daughter intellectually and emotionally. She is a reticent student who responds beautifully to William's low key, calm and confident tone. They are a productive match.

Traci, 19 lessons with William

Knowledgeable and engaging tutor

William has the ability to make calculus fun and easy to learn. He is helping me prepare to take AP Calculus this coming year. I am looking forward to taking the class knowing I have an excellent tutor who will help reinforce the concepts.

Lorna, 27 lessons with William

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!
