Personally, tutoring has been a very rewarding experience! In school, math classes can be boring, but I am here to make learning math more interesting! My favorite moment is always when I try to explain a concept using modern or funny examples to a student and he immediately gets it and appreciates mathematics even more.
Willie is a very kind and knowledgeable tutor. I approached him through Tavistock Tutors London because my daughter needed help pass a number of math exams. Not many people know the IB syllabus, so I am glad that Willie is not only familiar with it, but also puts the detailed effort in helping her in many aspects of the syllabus. It's been a pleasure working with him and I am glad that my daughter aced her exam and is now admitted to her dream school.
I reached out to Will because I needed to prepare for my college admission interview at Ecole Polytechnique last summer. He put so much effort for my preparation and compiled a comprehensive list of things in math I should know and we did went through a lot in the end. He is very clear and knowledgeable and thanks to his help, I got in!
As someone who hasn't dealt with any basic math for the last 4 years, I needed help to prepare for my GRE quantitative test for graduate school. Willie is so accomodating and he shows dedication in planning lessons and communicating what I need to know. I would recommend him if you need to learn something quick with results!
Will is an incredible teacher who’s amazing at explaining difficult concepts in a simple and easy to understand way! He offers great communication and support in any kind of Math related problems and has helped me so much over the last year! Starting from Further Maths basics, I’ve now been taught how to solve these problems with ease. I would recommend him as a great maths tutor, you cannot go wrong!
During the first lesson, I would firstly find out everything about the student as much as possible, from his/her expectations of the lessons to his general interests as well as performance in school or college. To make sure that the goals are met, I would propose a plan and start the lesson immediately.
A typical lesson with me starts with going through the basics of a topic, followed by a number of exercises to ensure that the student fully masters the topic. Of course, depending on the student's needs, I will vary the structure accordingly. I will try to make every explanation I give as relevant and interesting as possible!
For younger students, if parents are involved, I would give them regular feedback on the student's performance.
I obtained a first class Masters degree in Mathematics at Imperial College London and I am currently a PhD candidate at Stony Brook University, NY. For the last three years, I have also been working as a teaching assistant in both universities, teaching a variety of undergraduate level math courses. I am glad to have been awarded a Prize for Excellence in Teaching by Imperial in 2019.
Due to the current pandemic, I will only do online lessons. The rate is $50/hr for middle/high school students, $60/hr for college students and adult learners.
I have a wide experience teaching students in middle school, high school, college students, as well as adult learners.
Many of my previous students sought a general support throughout their studies and boosted their confidence, while a few others already had certain goals in mind, such as acing entrance exams (e.g. SSAT, SAT, ACT, AP, IB, A Levels, GRE Quant). I have also done a couple of interview practice for college admissions, the most recent one was for one of the top science colleges (grandes écoles) in France.
