I am a mathematics PhD student at Rice University with years of experience teaching and tutoring a variety of classes aimed at science and mathematics students at the university and high school level. Having excelled in countless upper division and graduate mathematics classes, I can say, without a doubt, that mathematics is one of the most beautiful subjects a person can explore.

I think this is where the vast majority of math teachers and tutors lose their students. As a result, my foremost goal in teaching is to convey both a sense of understanding and appreciation of mathematics. A student who hates a subject he or she does not understand will never truly learn, and conversely, a student who finds an idea beautiful will be much more inclined to pursue and explore it. I have helped many students of various ages, backgrounds, and levels of knowledge reach this point. During the academic year, I am a tutor, teaching assistant, and grader, and I have years of experience tutoring for many different classes.

I can tutor and have experience with calculus, pre-calculus, algebra I, algebra II, geometry, trigonometry, number theory, real and complex analysis, abstract algebra, discrete math, statistics, high school physics, etc.

For test preparations, I can help with all sections of the SAT, on which I made a 2220 with 800 math (uncurved -- every question correct), and on the GRE.

If you or your child want to reach a level of understanding that most teachers and tutors do not offer, please contact me. I would love to meet and tell you more about my experience and methods.
I look forward to working with you!

Knowledgeable & excellent tutor

William is an excellent Calculus tutor. He was able to help my daughter understand and feels confident about Calculus. She also learns faster ways to derive to the same answers. I highly recommend Will.

Linda, 6 lessons with William

Very helpful tutor

Was very patient in reviewing trig, precal and cal 1 before moving on to Cal 2. I will definitely be using him again in the future. Highly recommend him!

Ronald, 1 lesson with William

Excellent Tutor

William tutored my sons in Algebra 2 and in Calculus BC. He was extremely organized, knowledgeable and patient. He explained the material clearly, came up with a game plan for the semester and discussed strategies for making less errors on tests. His easy going demeanor made my sons feel less stress about their subjects. I highly recommend him as a tutor.

Worth Every Penny!

William does a fantastic job helping with material above my head. He can easily solve problems with no look at a book. His ability to do so makes the time with him more economical, show him a problem and he has no problem coming up with the way to solve it. Some tutors have problem with upper level college material but it seems no challenge to him.

Fantastic tutor!

Great tutor! Extremely nice guy and knows the material very well. I had him help me with Calculus 2 and he has made the class way easier for me. Highly recommend him!

Ben, 9 lessons with William

Very patient!

William connected with my son very well. He has a very easy demeanor and my son enjoyed the hour. His comment when I picked him up was that it went very fast and he enjoyed it. High accolades from a 17 year old. I also appreciate the time that William spent with me discussing a game plan for the summer and what we can focus on at home in between tutoring sessions. Great match!

Great Calc II Tutor!!

William helped me with my Calc II class and really helped me get a better grasp of the material. I learned more from one tutoring session with William than I did studying on my own for a week and a half. I highly recommend him for any math tutoring needs!!
