About William


Bio

Since I retired (last worked as an Associate Technical Fellow engineer and Lead Technical Engineer at the Boeing Company), I've been tutoring fairly full time. This is my 5th school year and I love tutoring. I also am the father of 7 children. Additionally, I have many years experience working with, teaching, and counseling youth in a variety of age groups ranging from age 6 to 18. I love working with kids and enjoy helping them both learn and love to learn.

Since I retired (last worked as an Associate Technical Fellow engineer and Lead Technical Engineer at the Boeing Company), I've been tutoring fairly full time. This is my 5th school year and I love tutoring. I also am the father of 7 children. Additionally, I have many years experience working with, teaching, and counseling youth in a variety of age groups ranging from age 6 to 18. I love working with kids and enjoy helping them both learn and love to learn.

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Mathematics from Brigham Young University and have more than 35 years of practical experience in working with Math on a daily basis.

I would love to help any student understand, enjoy, and develop proficiency in math and the sciences. Contact me to learn more or to set up tutoring times.

Elementary Math

I was recently notified by Wyzant that I am rated in the top 3% of their tutors. The principles of math have inherently many ways of being viewed, performed, and understood. My experience working with youth and my background with mathematics, have prepared me with the ability to see the best ways a particular individual understands these principles and I will be able to apply that to help your son/daughter both learn and enjoy the subject. I am an experienced teacher and mentor being the father of 7 children, having served as a Boy Scout leader for over 20 years, and having been a church youth teacher and leader of age 6 to 18 year olds for many years.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I was recently notified by Wyzant that I am rated in the top 3% of their tutors. I have a clear understanding of basic algebra, as well as the supporting math leading to it and the math it builds toward. A bachelors degree in mechanical engineering, a minor in mathematics, and the practicality of 35 years of engineering experience have prepared me. There are many ways of viewing, performing, and understanding basic algebra and my background and experience enable me to see how individuals best understand, learn, and perform algebraic work.

I was recently notified by Wyzant that I am rated in the top 3% of their tutors. I have a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering with a minor in mathematics and have 35 plus years of engineering experience involving the use of complex math and the sciences (with the application of math) on a daily basis, including Calculus. I am an experienced tutor, teacher and mentor and can use that experience to help each individual understand in their own way.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I was recently notified by Wyzant that I am rated in the top 3% of their tutors. I was an Associate Technical Fellow at the Boeing Company with an Electronics Packaging focus which included expertise in chemical properties of metals, semiconductors, and gases. It also included expertise in understanding chemical reactions, such as those occurring in corrosion, thermodynamics, and heat transfer. Additionally, I took undergraduate honors chemistry classes at the University of Washington.
Geometry,

Geometry

I was recently notified by Wyzant that I am rated in the top 3% of their tutors.

Patient and Knowledgeable Tutor

He is very knowledgeable and extremely patient and kind. A great tutor, would definitely recommend. Even though he has not taught Geometry in a while, he was fantastic coming back to a subject he had not seen for some time.

William, 2 lessons with William

Very clear and very helpful

William taught probability and algebra 2. I always learn so much from William. He is always clear and concise. William is also very patient which I appreciate very much.

Mark, 4 lessons with William

Great Tutor

William is thorough in his explanations. He is patient and ensures understanding by asking questions as part of his teaching methods. He is an excellent tutor.

Abby, 85 lessons with William

Very knowledgeable tutor...

He helped me review trigonometric formulas that I haven't used in a very long time. He's patient and tries a different teaching approach if I'm having trouble understanding what he's trying to show me. Very professional tutor...

Patrick, 3 lessons with William

Great Tutor

William is kind and patient. He really knows how to explain things in a way that our daughter understands. Common Core math is so confusing and William can cut through the confusionso it makes sense.

Cathy, 24 lessons with William

William is very helpful...

William has helped my daughter many times when in need last minute when extra work comes up and he's always very patient and kind and has a lot of experience. Awesome Tutor!

Vanessa, 2 lessons with William

Great Test review

Bill reviewed my previous tests with me and helped to bring me up to date on what I need to know. He was knowledgeable and was able to show me different ways to solve the problem.

Experience Tutoring Students Showed

Great first lesson! Looking forward to seeing my son do well in these difficult subjects this year. William communicated well throughout the initial process and quickly established a positive rapport with my son.

Richard, 22 lessons with William

I Definitely recommend

William has a talent for teaching. He is able to simplify complicated processes, which really helps to make what can be confusing clear. William has a demeanor that makes you comfortable and opens your mind for learning new stuff.
