About William


Bio

My passion for teaching began during my undergraduate years at University of Nebraska - Lincoln after tutoring dorm-mates and participating in the university’s approved teaching internship where I taught AP calculus and AP physics at two Lincoln high schools: Pius X and Parkview, on a prearranged, alternate basis, with a permanent S.T.E.M. faculty member (100+ verifiable hours). I received my Bachelor’s degree in physics with a minor in mathematics (Class of 2013) which includes algebra...

My passion for teaching began during my undergraduate years at University of Nebraska - Lincoln after tutoring dorm-mates and participating in the university’s approved teaching internship where I taught AP calculus and AP physics at two Lincoln high schools: Pius X and Parkview, on a prearranged, alternate basis, with a permanent S.T.E.M. faculty member (100+ verifiable hours). I received my Bachelor’s degree in physics with a minor in mathematics (Class of 2013) which includes algebra through college-level calculus I, II, III, multivariable calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and statistics. All my course work completed in the fields of mathematics and physics was required by my original agricultural engineering major specializing in circuits and sensors, which comprised the disciplines of electrical and mechanical engineering. This interest in teaching continues today as I regularly substitute teach at my local high school and tutor privately, as well as, tutor over 230 hours through Wyzant Tutoring Services predominately in mathematics and physics.
I can help you succeed in your academic challenges because of my broad background: mathematics, engineering, and physics coursework.
Mathematics Courses: algebra I and II, trigonometry, calculus I, II, and III (multivariable), differential equations, linear algebra (matrix theory), and statistics.
Engineering Courses: thermodynamics, statics, dynamics, fluid mechanics, fluid power circuits and controls, MATLAB programming, material science engineering, electrical engineering, and laser optics engineering. Differential and integral calculus are used extensively in these courses.
Physics Courses: basic physics, AP physics B and C, mechanics: physics I for engineering, electricity and magnetism: physics II for engineers, solid state physics, and plasma physics including an aspect called relativistic plasma physics. Differential and integral calculus are used extensively in these courses.

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.

Knowledgeable and patient

William helped me understand the math behind the physics problem sets I struggled to complete on my own. My learning style is compatible with his teaching style, which makes challenging concepts and calculations easier to grasp. Overall, I am beyond satisfied.

homeschool physics

William jumped in to take over teaching my daughters physics mid-year. He was very knowledgeable with the subject matter, flexible with scheduling, and came to the lessons well Prepared. I highly recommend him and will use him again in the future if the need arises.

Knowledgable and Cool

Helped me learn the concepts of liquids and pressure in physics. I feel a lot more competent and confidant now to tackle physics problems on home worksheets and lecture exams.

Good tutor

William is working with my son on AP Calculus AB and doing great. He is knowledgeable and patient. We will be tutoring with him for the foreseeable future. He helps my son work through his homework and makes sure he understands the concepts.

Great help!

He assisted my son who is new to engineering complete a much needed assignment. I plan to use him in the near future to help my son understand the course and engineering. .
