Reviews
William is an excellent tutor! He is super nice and helpful. I have often struggled with AP World, especially stimulus-based multiple choice questions despite lots of studying. Once I started working with William, I improved significantly on the multiple choice questions. He gave me some useful strategies and worked intensively with me through past exam questions to sharpen my multiple choice question skills. As a result, I got a good score on the AP exam. Not only did William do a good job at helping me with AP World, but he also made me more interested in history. He was very enthusiastic when teaching and he treated me like a friend, which made every lesson very enjoyable. I highly recommend him to students who struggle with AP World History!

William is an amazing tutor who greatly helped my daughter obtain the knowledge she needed for the AP World Exam. Thanks to his exceptional teaching skills, she got a 5 on the exam. Although history is not one of my daughter's favorite subjects, he made it fun and provided her with so much positivity which would not have been possible if it wasn't for him. He gives the absolute best preparation by adapting to the specific needs of your child and allowing them to thrive in the class. I would most definitely recommend William to anyone looking for an AP World tutor!! Thank you SO MUCH for all your help!
- Rashanna W. from Northridge, CA
William was the perfect tutor for my daughter. She wanted review and technical tips on how to take the World History AP, and he was the person for the job! She loved his vibe and his energy. She feels as though she got an enormous amount of out their sessions. It was entirely worth it. He helped sharpen her writing and made her feel less adrift in the material. He was flexible with timing and utterly reliable. I recommend him without reservation.

William tutored my daughter for several AP World History courses. After the first lesson, my daughter already felt less anxious about the test. He exceeded our expectations, is very personable and goes above and beyond for his students. He sent her practice tests and videos for her to study outside of the tutoring sessions and answered any questions through email. I highly recommend and hope to be able to work with him again in the future. Excellent Teacher.

We were really impressed with Dan's knowledge and teaching ability. He gave my daughter several good tips on how to prepare for the AP exam. We highly recommend him.

Energetic and very knowledgeable tutor. Uses his tutor hour really well. My first daughter worked with him on APWH last year and received 5 on the exam. Now my second daughter started with him. Highly recommend.

My 15 yr old son wishes that William was his teacher. He explains everything so clearly and makes it easier to comprehend. He is also extremely understanding and great to work with. I would highly recommend him to any student!!

The title is from the words of my daughter who had AP world history lessons with William. (1) William knows world history inside out. There is no question that he does not have an answer to. He can easily elaborate on any random subject and come up with points that you need to remember for the test. (2) William is effective in preparing your AP exam. He tells you what you must know in order to do well on the exam and what you don?t need to prepare beyond certain points. He also teaches you how to score high for certain types of the questions in the exam. What a great value proposition. (3) William has a good work ethic. He is punctual, yet not nickel-and-dime over lesson time. He gives you homework and writes down clear lesson notes for you to refresh. A big time saver! Choose William! You get the most bang for the buck!

William tutored my son in AP World History - his lessons were so engaging that I myself couldn?t help but want to hear more! He knows how to connect with students by putting concepts in relatable terms and helped guide my son to an A on his first long essay writing assignment.

My daughter was struggling with her AP World class at the beginning of the year. Since she started working with William, her grades went back up to an A both semesters. William has supported her so much throughout the year, instilling confidence and motivation within her as a student. One of the best advantages of working with William is that he himself is an AP world teacher and is always on top of everything regarding the class. He is not only a great teacher but an incredible mentor and has really helped my daughter reach her academic goals and made her love history! William has also demonstrated amazing support and leadership during the circumstances of COVID-19, helping my daughter successfully navigate the last minute changes of the AP exam. Without a doubt, William is the perfect teacher, he made a monumental difference for my daughter, and I am sure he will continue to do so with many other students. I wish him all the best!

William's enthusiasm for history and for teaching more broadly absolutely has an impact on his students. My child really enjoyed working with William in advance of his AP World History exam. I can't think of a finer tutor!
- Susannah F. from Bethesda, MD
Mr. D has been an excellent professor. Knowledge and passion for history defines his teaching success. With few sessions, my daughter was able to assimilate the information she had trouble with since the beginning of the school year. She started to develop a different concept of this subject, a more fun and interesting one. Mr. D tries to explain in a more simple way the most important aspects of each historical time. I will continue to use his services in the future. I only wish our schools can have many Mr. D?s so our children can enjoy and learn more about History.

We feel very lucky to have found such a wonderful teacher! William is very knowledgeable and encouraging. My daughter is learning so much from him. They are working on writing and test taking skills for DBQs at this time and my daughter is gaining a lot of knowledge and confidence from William?s teaching and feedback. He is funny and energetic and my daughter looks forward to her sessions with William. We are hoping to work with William more.
