"Hello, friends! My name is William, and I’m a science and math tutor based out of Las Vegas, NV. I have aPhD in Physics and a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. With over 10 years of combined teaching and tutoring experience, I’ve taught introductory physics in a college classroom setting, and I have tutored students from age eight to sixty-eight to improve classroom grades, prepare for standardized tests or simply for the joy and personal enrichment of learning.

I firmly believe that the best knowledge comes from doing, and I encourage my students to see math as a tool rather than a task for memorization. Practically, that means that I do no more than half the talking in a tutoring session. Frequently, I will ask students to explain concepts or steps in a problem back to me as a way of seeing how much they understand. I'm not around just to hand out answers to the problem in front of a student -- I'm here to hand out tools to solve problems they haven't even seen yet!

The main issue commonly plaguing math students is the idea that there is just a lot of math to memorize. There is a lot of math out there, true, but every bit of it is built on baby steps while leaning heavily on what you've learned before. Identifying, leveraging and building upon a student's past successes, however small they might seem, is the key to building mathematical confidence.

I'm excited to get to work with you to achieve your personal and academic goals. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson!" less...
