I am fully aware of the different approaches to teaching courses in AP Calculus or AP Physics for students who learn differently and assimilate material at different rates. "Eureka Moments" do exist and I know how to evoke that sought- after response in my students.

I am fully aware of the different approaches to teaching courses in AP Calculus or AP Physics for students who learn differently and assimilate material at different rates. "Eureka Moments" do exist and I know how to evoke that sought- after response in my students.

My high school experiences included summer sessions of advanced concepts in Mathematics and Physics while living at The Hun School of Princeton, Penn State, and Phillips Academy.

My passion for teaching began during my undergraduate years at University of Nebraska – Lincoln, tutoring dorm-mates and participating in the university’s approved teaching internship with a S.T.E.M. faculty member (for 100+ verifiable hours) at both Parkview and Pius X High schools in Lincoln, Nebraska which allowed me to honed my skill and ability to teach Calculus and Physics. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Physics with a minor in Mathematics (Class of 2013) which included college Algebra through Calculus I, II, III, and Differential Equations, a requirement of my original Agricultural Engineering major specializing in circuits and sensors, which comprised the disciplines of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.

After graduating my interest in teaching continued when I worked as a substitute teacher at Lake Travis High School in LTISD for 8 years, while tutoring in the evenings and weekends for Wyzant. Currently, I tutor exclusively online, for over 2,241+ hours, through Wyzant Tutoring Services in Mathematics and Physics..

As a result of my broad background in mathematics, engineering, and physics, I can help you succeed with your academic challenges.

Let’s see what we can accomplish together!!!

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I have an extensive background in Differential Equations as a result of my dual major in engineering and applied physics at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I have utilized Differential Equations not only from a mathematical perspective, but also applied differential equations to electrical engineering, physics and other disciplines involving non-static systems such as: engineering dynamics and thermodynamics. The field of Differential Equations can be a fascinating branch of mathematics that combines an individual's math talents into one course. A solid foundation in Differential Equations will allow you, as a student, to appreciate physics, chemistry, and engineering courses from a whole new viewpoint. As a tutor, I believe, Differential Equations are the capstone course for all other pursuits in mathematics and the hard sciences and will allow the student to pursue a myraid of applications ranging from Newton's Law of Cooling, radioactive decay problems used in a bacteria laboratory, computing the lift and drag velocities of a 747 aircraft to the flight path of a fighter plane landing on the deck of a moving aircraft carrier. I will try to provide the student with a mathematical background of Differential Equations plus present a practical application of that knowledge to reinforce the concepts presented.

Great teacher, and very patient!

My daughter was able to improve her grades and she is feeling more confident . Williams was patient and understanding. We will ask for Willian on a need base or to prepare before a test.

Asia, 9 lessons with William

Very helpful

Very helpful with advanced calculus, tutored both my kids to get ready for finals. I like that the kids can go back and review the lesson and scheduling was easy

Tristan , 2 lessons with William

Excellent tutor

William helped my son with honor’s high school physics. My son informed me that after his tutoring session, he was able to understand the material much better because William was able to convey it an understandable manner. William used examples that my son could relate to and, therefore remember for future test questions. Highly recommend William.

Catherine, 5 lessons with William

Great with physics!!!

William was great with my 11th grade daughter preparing her for an honors physics test. We would use him again for general homework or test prep.

Ariana, 1 lesson with William

Great teacher, and very patient!

My daughter was able to understand several concepts and she is feeling more confident . Williams was patient and understanding. We will ask for Willian help again!

Excellent tutor

William helped with AP Calc and did an excellent job! Very knowledgeable and great with explaining the information in an understandable way. I would recommend highly.

Laura, 1 lesson with William

Highly recommended

William was very professional and friendly. He did a great job of helping me understand complicated physics problems and concepts. Highly recommended.

Andrew, 2 lessons with William

very detailed, and calm

William made sure I really grasped the material, and didn’t make me feel dumb for not knowing something. He’s a great guy.

Carlos, 4 lessons with William

Great math tutor

William has helped our son through a very difficult school year of math. William is patient and is explain to explain concepts in a way that can be more easily understood even for a student who isn’t naturally gifted at math. William was our son’s actual math teacher this year, not the teacher who was teaching the class at school.
