William has made a tremendous difference in my son's life! William uses a fantastic curriculum that challenges kids and makes them love math at the same time. My son is very passionate about mathematics and William was the ONLY person we were able to find in NYC who was willing to find the appropriate approach for an 7 year old. We have taken 3 years worth of courses so far. William focuses on skills and teaches problem solving methods so that kids can succeed in the future. It's not just about getting the right answer. After 3 years, my son has improved dramatically! Thanks to William and his individualized approach, my son will be taking pre-Calculus in 5th Grade! He has also placed nationally for the past 3 years in the Kangaroo Math Competition.
In addition, I have recommended William to friends and several have enrolled their kids. Even kids who did not like math started to enjoy it after seeing William!!! I can't say how impressed I am with Computing Wisdom. I have been recommending it to kids who are struggling and kids who are excelling in mathematics! You won't regret it!

I first had Mr. William tutored me in Algebra when he opened Computing Wisdom. It was a really challenging course, however, it made my math work from school looks really easy. When it was time for SHSAT, I went to Mr. William for preparing for the math section. Not only did I score pretty well on the SHSAT, but I also got into my specialized high school of choice, Brooklyn Technical High School. In my 10th grade, I took Mr. William's Geometry Course. Not only did I learn a lot from this course, but it was also the favorite course I attended there. Schools would just make us memorize equations and theorems, however, Mr. William truly made us understand the proofs of each and every theorem that was taught in the Geometry Course. During the summer of 2019, I took Mr. William's SAT Math course along with a course from another tutoring place that provided tutoring for both math and ELA. From what I experienced, I learned more from Computing Wisdom than the other tutoring place. Because of Mr. William's help, I scored a 790 on the math section of the SAT. As well, I was introduced to Mr. William's competition course Junior Math Olympiad--which isn't taught by the New York school system--and the math competition Purple Comet Math Meet. With these exposures, my math knowledge expanded even more. I truly recommend Computing Wisdom to students who would want to learn more in the math field because you're guaranteed excellent test results and more math knowledge than you would get from regular schools.

Susanna has tutored our 3rd grade daughter (8-year old) for 1 year now and we could not be happier with the ongoing results.
Susanna is an extraordinary educator who takes the time to tailor an agenda to ensure our daughter fully masters the material before moving on to the next lesson; precisely what we were looking for in a math tutor.
In full transparency, the Beast Academy workbook is extremely challenging and would have impossible for us (both time and patience!) to teach our child ourselves since it requires a math professional to communicate the concepts properly and in the right academic setting.
Our 3rd grade daughter has already been introduced to introductory algebra, geometry, and even basic algorithms over the last 12 months under Susanna’s highly curated curriculum.
Another challenge for our daughter was ‘word problems’ containing multiple steps / concepts, which could be very frustrating for any student (at any age). Our daughter can now systemically attack the problem in a logical manner by showing her work step-by-step.
Susanna even taught Leela multiplication short-cuts and our 8-year old can now solve problems faster than her well-educated parents : ) For example, our daughter can multiply 73 x 8 or 85 x 85 in her head faster than my iPhone calculator!
Susanna is passionate, patient, and persistent and has developed a genuine connection with our quiet daughter; we couldn’t be more grateful.
Our daughter went from being a good student to top of her class in a matter of months and is now 2-3 years above grade level. Our very shy girl is exuding daily confidence in the classroom which is directly attributed to her Saturday morning classes with Susanna.
My wife & I were on the fence on adding yet another extracurricular activity (ie: reading tutor, chess, technology, tennis, swimming, etc) however we could not be happier in the investment and we have seen immediate returns.
We are so thrilled with the progress and passion that Susanna has instilled in our daughter, we would be happy to ‘pay it forward’ and speak to anyone in greater detail, just ask the staff of Computing Wisdom for our contact details.

William is one of the most challenging tutors I have ever had but it pays off in the long run. I was learning college level math that made the math in high school really easy. I took Algebra 2/Trig, SAT Math, Precalculus, and SAT Math 2. All of these courses set me up for success in school because of William’s encouragement. I grew confident in myself as a student and I wasn’t afraid to ask questions. When I didn’t understand a problem after William’s first explanation he was able to explain the problem again in a different way - a skill that some of my teachers lacked. In public school, there was only one way to explain a solution to a problem which made it hard for me to understand since I had so many questions. William made math very enjoyable because he took the time to explain why we have certain rules in math instead of just having me memorize rules. In his class, it was understanding math over memorizing math. I am really glad that I had a tutor like William.

Mr. William is one of the most professional tutors I have ever met. Before Computing Wisdom, I joined many tutoring centers throughout Manhattan. But they all lacked a sort of concept: Explaining to the students. Most tutoring centers will use the most traditional method to boost your scores, by drilling. However, if one doesn't understand the topic well enough, it is just a foolhardy journey. The course that I took was the Geometry course. Geometry taught at my school was just by memorizing theorems and postulates. But Mr. William actually took the time to prove said theorems to me making me understand the subject better. It is this sort of step that he takes that other tutors don't that actually makes a difference in our learning experiences. I would recommend this tutor to those out there in search for the best math learning experience.

Mr. William is a sophisticated math tutor, and I've been training with him for almost two years now. His classes have brought me through elementary school and placed me as one of the students with the highest math grades in my classes. Through his training, I had been accepted to NEST+m. He has also helped me get into Hunter College High School with his intense Hunter Test Prep. I have also been accepted to Trinity School, which I will attend next year. I am happy that Mr. William has been backing me up these years, and without him, I won't be who I am now.

Mr. William is a teacher that pushes students to the limits of their ability and encourages students to understand the underlying concepts of mathematical ideas rather than having kids memorize formulas. Each of his lessons is always fast-paced and intriguing, where Mr. William truly cares about your understanding of the principles he teaches. Due to his help, I gained admission to Hunter College High School, one of the top schools in New York.
Primary & Junior Math Olympiads, Hunter Math Prep, 2017-2018
William's lectures are both insightful and challenging. He is unparalleled among math tutors and his lessons are always fast paced and interesting. I highly recommend Computing Wisdom for children who want a leg up in math.
Senior Math Olympiad, 2017
Mr. William is a wonderful teacher. He is very specific when he teaches and out of all the math courses I took, he was the tutor that helped me the most. I ranked 1st place on Grades 5-6 division at 2017 Stevens Math Olympiad, and 23rd nationally & 10th in New York on Level 5 & 6 at 2017 Math Kangaroo because of him. I also took a preparation course with Mr. William to help me get into NEST+m, and because of the course, I got accepted to the school! Thanks, Mr. William!

I found William through a brochure and he was a life saver. I had been using tutors for my daughter for a few years and nothing worked. I was desperate. She was struggling in Math and needed help. I found that help with William. William brought her grade from a 67 to a 98 in only a few months.
His methods works and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs math help. He was a life saver.

We put our daughter for Computing Wisdom's SAT Math tutoring course to prepare for McNair's High School math admissions test. Her score increased about 200 points at the end, and she was accepted into the school!! We knew she worked very hard and constantly being challenged throughout the 16 sessions. We were extremely happy with the instructor William Chau. He genuinely cares about children's learning.The attention and learning experience our daughter got went above and beyond expectations, and was simply priceless.

William's very experienced in math and always knows what he's talking about. Explains concepts in full depth and also explains how and why these concepts are created, which is not usually found in a normal classroom setting. Always encourages to ask questions and takes me to a math level one year ahead. Overall, he is a very experienced teacher.

He is a great educator always teaching above and beyond the school curriculum and teaching in lots of detail. He is quite encouraging in terms of going ahead of the curriculum, i.e. he never stop us from learning more. Not only that but he is quite easy to understand and very friendly as a teacher. Over all, he provides a great learning environment to his students. I really enjoyed my learning experience with him!

William was very resourceful when it came to studying for my SATs. How you study or prepare for a test really depends on the student taking it and he taught the sessions personalized to my needs. We covered all of the major topics that you are required to know. We then went through a collection of problems he made, which consisted of the hardest SAT math problems directly from the Collegeboard. These sessions were very targeted and helpful. Overall, you can make the sessions the way you want and focus on what you think you need to work on. William covers that material as well as how to take the SAT. This includes timing, how to score the most points, and how to tackle the harder questions. Recommended for anyone who wants to push their score to the next level in math.

William was so helpful when it came to my ninth grade year where I would be taking geometry. It was really important for me to get more advanced in math to help me manage my time through the year and the program definitely boosted my math skills in just a few weeks. His teaching style is perfect especially if based around a book because there are chapters that he assigns with homework to reinforce things learned in class. Now in ninth grade, geometry is much easier and comes more natural to me.
William has tutored me since I was in elementary school. He taught me challenging materials that I haven't learned in school, using a variety of shortcuts to solve problems. At times, the shortcuts and methods he used are not taught in school. Although the materials he taught me are challenging, it has helped me in school. By the time I learn the materials in school, I have already build a strong foundation on the materials, making it easier for me in school. William is very dedicated. He takes the time to prepare for the class material. I am grateful for having him as mentor because he has helped me in many ways. He has helped me increase my score in SHSAT, SAT, and SAT subject test in Math Level 2. Through his dedicated help, I was able to get accepted into a specialized high school and a good university.

William has tutored me since I was a young child. He has taught me numerous tricks to solve mathematical problems easily. He's also helped me increase my scores in math. Asides from mathematical tutoring sessions, he has helped me with my high school and college applications. It's always been a joy having him as my tutor and mentor. I'm very grateful for his generous help, because without him, I wouldn't be able to increase my grades and understand the whole process to college. William was also someone who helped shaped who I am today.
