My name is William and I am passionate about science - Let me share this passion with you! I specialize in constructing personalized programs for MCAT test-preparation as well as AP/IB chemistry and physics.

I grew up in Minnetonka and am currently located just west of Minneapolis. I cater to all courses and age levels and focus on the highest-yielding approach for each of my students.

I recently defended my Master's degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Minnesota. Dur...

I worked with William for 4 months while I was studying for the MCAT. I had started studying with the Kaplan 7-book set but found that I wasn?t making much progress, so I reached out to him. William was quickly able to pinpoint my strengths and weaknesses and developed a study plan that was tailored to my individual needs. Each day, I knew exactly what to work on and study, and I could trust that I was making the best possible use of my time. William clearly cares a lot about his students? progress, and he would frequently check in and made adjustments to my study schedule as needed. William is incredibly knowledgeable (It seems like he knows everything!) as well as an excellent teacher. He is able to think about concepts in many different ways and adjusts his explanations to fit your learning style. After working with him, I saw huge improvements in both my understanding of material and in my test scores. In addition to being an excellent teacher, William is really enjoyable to work with. Studying for the MCAT can be a rough process, but he made it feel more manageable, and I really looked forward to my sessions with him! I am so grateful to have found him, and I would highly recommend him to anyone studying for the MCAT or just looking for a great tutor!

I had the pleasure of discovering William on Wyzant before taking the MCAT. From day one, he helped me create a tailored study schedule for which I was held accountable. In every one of our sessions, he was able to pinpoint my weaknesses and provide me with targeted practice problems and reading material. He was always prepared and immensely patient. Even though I asked him so many questions about my mistakes on practice exams, particularly those in the Chem/Phys, Bio/Biochem, and Psych/Soc sections, William took the time to answer every single one of my questions in the most comprehensive way possible. He even posed follow-up questions to test whether I had truly understood the material. After every session, he sent me his detailed notes as well. I feel so grateful to have had William as an MCAT tutor, and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

William had taken time to review my daughter?s course syllabus before the session. He asked her what she wanted to do first, and proceeded to help her with specific examples. William was encouraging and taught or reviewed again when needed. He sent her extra practice problems immediately after the session, and made a plan with her for the next session. Unlike other tutors, William prepared for the session, used every moment to help and encourage her, and helped her plan for a successful next session. I have been a teacher for more than 26 years, and William is doing the work of a master teacher - not just going over random problems or offering general advice. We are instant fans of his methodology.

My daughter has been working with William over Skype, and it has been very successful! He has been very patient with her, as she is on the autistic spectrum, and she can be frustrating to work with. She has had two lessons with him now, and is feeling much more confident. He has been very flexible with his schedule, and reached out to us in order to be prepared to cover the materials that my daughter wanted help with. We are very happy to have found him!

Directed my studying more towards specifics of what I need. Lots of passage practice and review. Gave a bunch of useful tips and items to use. I will definitely be using William as a tutor for more sessions leading up to my MCAT exam on the 24th of August.

I contacted William after my original tutor failed to show up to our meetings. I started preparing for the MCAT one month prior of meeting with William. The MCAT entails a ton of content and I found myself lost in all the material. Within our first session, William managed to analyze all my material, strength and weaknesses and helped me come up with a game plan. He is experienced with coaching people for the MCAT and knows how to teach difficult material and passages. Williams truly loves teaching and is willing to help you with anything you have trouble with. He is very involved and makes sure you get the best out of each session. I am glad that William will be coaching me for this very important exam. I highly recommend him to anyone that finds themselves lost in all the MCAT material. GREAT TUTOR!

William does not mess around. If you've got goals but you're not the person to iron out fine details, Will's the tutor for you. He has a clear vision of where you need to go with your progression. On top of this, he's an insanely patient man and should either win an Oscar for keeping a straight face during your rough patches or is the great great grandson of Mother Theresa. TBD. Elite MCAT tutoring is no exaggeration.
- Ankita K. from Lagrange, GA
I contacted William about 3 weeks before my MCAT test date because I was really struggling with the reading section. He is an incredible tutor, especially for something as challenging and frustrating as the MCAT. He responds very quickly, is flexible about timing, and is extremely prepared. Not only does he know all the information but he knows how to teach it. He gave me handouts when I was stuck on a concept, walked me through practice problems and helped me with test taking strategy. He is exceptionally patient and understanding. Even though I started working with him only on the reading and analysis section, he helped me with psych, bio, chem and physics too. Working with him gave me the confidence you need to be able to succeed on the MCAT!

William was wonderful! I had a chemistry emergency and needed to submit an assignment within a few hours. My usual tutor was unavailable and I was at a complete loss until William responded to my tutoring request! He stayed on Skype with me until midnight and explained all of solubility to me. An expensive evening, but I really learned the material and submitted my assignment on time!

William was an outstanding tutor that was willing to meet my needs in helping me study for the MCAT. He was very energetic and developed a tailored schedule that allowed me to succeed. I personally had trouble with the Verbal Reasoning Section, yet after my sessions with William I?d say it was my best subject. Overall, I can?t say how grateful I am for all William has done for me. Truly a great tutor and person all around.

William is a FANTASTIC physics tutor. My son has some special needs (on the autistic spectrum) and was failing his physics course. After 3 tutoring sessions, he took a test and received a 90%. William is patient and developed a trusting relationship with my son very quickly. I can't say enough about how talented William is in connecting and working with students.
- Terryl S. from Chanhassen, MN
I have a lot of content and William was able to help me organize and plan for my certification exam. He is very patient and aware of different learning styles. He was interested and engaged in the content for the entire session. William went above and beyond by reviewing my content before coming to the session. He has all the traits one needs in a tutor reliable, clear communicator and positive attitude. I have already scheduled more sessions- great experience.
