About William

Hi, my name is Will, and I am a High School Mathematics teacher and tutor. I believe that everyone is able to learn and grow, and I really enjoy helping students break down and analyze difficult problems in order to solve them.

After earning my Bachelor's Degree in Integrated Science and Technology from James Madison University, I went to work as an Environmental Scientist for a government contractor. After a while, I realized that although my work was meaningful, I wanted to give back to the community and help others more directly. I decided to become a high school teacher. I went back to school and earned my Master's Degree in Transition Special Education from The George Washington University, got a job with Fairfax County Public Schools, and have never looked back. I can truly say that I have found a job I love.

I specialize in Geometry, which I currently teach full-time, but I also have experience with Middle School Math, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus. I have tutored students of all ages, from elementary school to high school. My students have had a wide range of backgrounds and abilities, from those at magnet and private schools to those with multiple disabilities. I have extensive experience working with students with learning disabilities, emotional disabilities, autism, ADD/ADHD, etc.

If you would like to schedule a session, please send me a message. I look forward to working with you.

Thanks for your consideration!

Sincerely,

Will
