William "I am a Ph.D. student in Cognitive Science and Philosophy at the University of Arizona, but I discovered my love for teaching as a high school substitute teacher after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Highest Honors and Distinction). Since then, I have designed and taught many advanced undergraduate courses at the University of Arizona from the ground up, but my teaching abilities are strong in a one-on-one setting.
