I have taught chemistry for several years part-time at a community college while working full time as a chemist. I have experience teaching high school sciences and maths as well as college level inorganic and organic chemistry.
I have a Masters Degree in Chemistry from the University of Washington, Seattle, and have been employed as a chemist and educator for over twenty years. I thoroughly enjoy teaching, and tutored all through my college years. My goal as an instructor is to ensure that the student is comfortable with the material, understands the theory/process behind it, and through whatever means available (rote, practice, modeling, schematics, discussion, debate, visual exploration or kinetic exercise) is able to demonstrate that understanding. When teaching, I explore a concept by discussion with the student(s), then demonstrate several applications of the topic, and finally provide practical problems/exercises for review.
In this way, I try to engage students in the subject matter while they strive for competency as well as confidence in the material - even enjoy it(!). Throughout my years as an instructor, I have had the opportunity to work with students of all levels of capability, and am willing and able to assist with study skills or accommodate other needs as well. It is my hope to facilitate their efforts so that they may attain the goals they have set for themselves and advance into their chosen careers.
Could not have asked for a better tutor!
I am so fortunate that I had Bill as my tutor. It is only with his help that I made it through my pre calculus class maintaining a decent grade average as well as my sanity. He is so patient, which is imperative when trying to make someone understand things that are completely out of their comfort zone. If I didn't understand his explanation for a problem/concept, then he'd try it from different angles until I did. His demeanor and approach helped me to relax and not view every aspect of pre calculus as terrifying, and once I was able to do that, it in turn increased my confidence. As this was the last class standing between me and my degree and I was not at all confident I was going to be able to pass it when I first started, "thank you" does not seem adequate, but since that's all I can do... THANK YOU!!!!Stacie, 9 lessons with William
Excellent AP Chemistry tutor
Bill has helped my son gain confidence and improve his grades. He is patient and prepared. He also writes a thoughtful update after lessons that show he is really paying attention to his student’s needs. As a parent, I am grateful for the observations about where my son is improving, what he is still lacking, and how he feels about the process.Mindy, 7 lessons with William
William is a really good teacher. If you prepare questions for the class, you will get 100% of your questions solved. His explanation is very clear and specific. I enjoy the classes with him.James, 5 lessons with William
Systematic with instruction and extraordinarily knowledgeable in chem and math
Mr. Adams uses simple and clear language to systematically cover large chunks of complicated material. He is a wealth of knowledge in both chemistry and math and his style of instruction makes difficult material very manageable.Alicia, 8 lessons with William
William was very helpful and took the time to explain the basics of algebra. My son leaned so much in this one hour. He was actually excited and wanted to go take a test at school! We're excited to see whats next.John, 7 lessons with William

It took him an hour to explain concepts that I had been working on for DAYS! I even aced my Chemistry quiz after our tutor session! Would definitely recommend.Jamie, 3 lessons with William
Professional and effective!
William did a fantastic job at explaining to me organic chemistry. He was very knowledgable and precise. He made sure to teach at my level and I have confidence that he can help me on further studies.Jessica , 4 lessons with William
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
William helped me with my Inorganic Chemistry. He was able to answer all of my questions and helped me understand the material more. He is the best Chemistry tutor. I highly recommend him.Linh, 3 lessons with William
