Middle Tennesee State University (Master's)
I am an enthusiastic teacher and am well-trained in the mathematics and science disciplines. I have over twenty years of experience tutoring in math and science classes. I am very good at breaking the skill sets down into systematic and learnable processes. I believe that students who want to learn these skills can master them and I consider it my job to find ways to make that happen.
In addition to a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Auburn University, I have a Master's of Science degree from Middle Tennessee State University which I completed in 2010. I have over twenty years of experience teaching and tutoring math and science classes at a local college.
I believe in taking students from the level where they are and developing them to the level they need to be to successfully pass the course. I begin by working out in detail examples of the types of problems over which you will be tested. I not only work the problem but I explain and emphasize the key principles that you will need to understand and master the material which is being learned. I then transition to letting you work problems of this type. During this stage, I carefully watch and analyze your work and then provide any needed reminders or coaching.

Will is a patient. enthusiastic. and fun tutor. My son enjoys his sessions with Will. And is accomplishing his goals with Will as his tutor! We are very pleased with Will as our tutor and highly recommend him!!
I was having trouble with my online Calculus Dual Enollment homework. Will was able to explain the problems, rules, and solutions in ways I could understand. He was a big help from the very the first meeting. Highly recommend Will for anyone who needs help with their Calculus!
Zach - Student
I could not have been more pleased with how Will S. was able to help my son with his Calculus Dual Enrollment subject. Zach had become very frustrated in a class that he wanted to enjoy and with Will's help, he got on track quickly. Will was great in communicating with me as well and very flexible in his times to meet with my son. Will S. definitately has the knowledge, but just as impotant to us is the fact that he has the heart of a teacher.

Will did a phenomenal job tutoring my high school daughter in Calculus. He provided step by step details on problems. We will now schedule weekly sessions with Will.
Will was very patient and kind, and looked into ways he could continue to help my daughter as we move forward.
Mr. S. is a great tutor! Identified the problems my daughter was having and went right to work! Very patient at going through the steps and breaking down problems.
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.
I have a strong, well-rounded education and have had success on most standardized tests. I have taught and tutored classes in mathematics and science. I also have a college minor in English. My twenty years of experience teaching and tutoring math and science classes while preparing students to perform well on tests make me an ideal candidate for this subject.
