About William

I'm currently a Senior at Southwestern University and I have been working as a private tutor throughout my college experience and tutored for the National Honor Society during high school. I have experience directly teaching as well, through an AmeriCorps internship I completed where I worked as an elementary English teacher for a summer. I am enthusiastic about learning and get a great deal of satisfaction from helping a student successfully understand a challenging topic. I work best one-on-one where I can become familiar with a student's individual strengths and weaknesses and tailor my teaching style to connect with the student. I am very good at breaking down complex, difficult topics into their core components for the students, which I have had considerable success with.

I specialize in test prep for the SAT/ACT. I have excelled on these tests personally and become very familiar with the particular strategies and methods that will allow your student to succeed on them as well. What I do is optimize how your student approaches and takes these tests. I will work problems with them to get a feel for their learning style and then tailor my approaches to best fit them. This allows your student to use their natural talents in the most effective way and earn the best possible score on their exam.

As an accounting major I have taken a wide variety of accounting, business, and economics classes at Southwestern, and this is an area of tutoring expertise for me. I have significant experience tutoring students in almost any class that falls under the business umbrella. Because of this I can break down complicated subjects into more easily understood pieces, and teach students how to properly apply formulas to easily solve problems.

I offer a free initial consultation session for my students, so don't hesitate to contact me! I look forward to helping you find success in your studies.
