Education and Qualifications
|school:||University of Georgia|
Hello! I am a (somewhat recent) graduate from the University of Georgia with a B.S. in Mathematics currently working in the financial sector. While in my undergraduate, I became aware that office hours were a necessity with certain subject areas. You see, while class was sufficient to cover the required teaching material, there was simply enough time to ensure that every student was retaining the information the way they should. Much in the same fashion, I believe that having the extra time to go over material is pertinent to retaining information. I always try to present the material in a way that perhaps is different than in the classroom, often times tying in the subject matter to real world applications. I always ensure that there is ample time to work through problems together, reviewing steps along the way. So often Math is a subject area that has a bad association, my goal is to make the learning experience as pleasant as possible through a hands on approach.
I have been tutoring in and around the Athens area since August 2010 for a wide range of students. While at UGA, I was a member of the Math Club as well as volunteering at many organizations in the Athens and Atlanta areas. My experience includes tutoring on a weekly basis for numerous clients as well as working with students over a short period of time to help them get caught up. I have worked with students aging 12-23 over the course of the last six years or so. I have tutored in group settings in the past, but I found that one-on-one engagements seem to be the most effective. I specialize in Math ranging from the common core, to High School Calculus, to College Courses including (but not limited to): Linear Algebra, Graph Theory, and Vector Calculus on Manifolds. Aside from my experience tutoring, I have also grown up in a teaching environment. These experiences have bolstered my ability to assess a student’s challenges, and rather than judge these challenges as inhibitors, recognize them as helpful information to best understand the student’s learning style.
My target tutoring clients do not have age, level, or rigor limitations. I am happy and interested in working with clients and students who range in age, stage, and skill level. Whether you are a parent seeking extra help for your child in any range of subjects, a young person trying to pass that one math requirement, or a student engaged in a deep pursuit of math, I would love to work closely with you and develop a course of action that will best serve your demand. Ultimately, I aim to benefit the students. I always encourage feedback and suggestions from both students and parents in order to make myself more effective. I am almost always available short notice, and will always respond promptly. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a time to meet!

Rating and Reviews
"An excellent tutor "
I was very impressed with Will. We had a great phone conversation on 02/22/2017 and made arrangements for Jackson's first math tutoring session on 02/23/2017. Jackson felt 100% better after just one session. I have already noticed a change in him when he has math homework. We are going to continue with Will for at least 6 more weeks. I couldn't be more proud, excited and relieved. Will is an excellent tutor and you should be proud he is affliated with TUTORZ.
