"More important than all the practice tests and vocab lists-though they can be invaluable also - is the sense of potential and possibility that Dr. Williams gives all his students."
Joshua Yaffa (B.A. Georgetown University; Special Work in Russia; M.A., Columbia School of Journalism; School of International & Public Affairs at Columbia University, Master's candidate 2008)
“Mr. Williams’ tutorial approach coupled with his constant student analysis and individual assessment helped me increase my SAT score well over 300 points (on the 1600-point scale). More importantly, the skills I developed under his tutelage have aided me throughout my life, preparing me not only to perform exceptionally well in college but as an investment banker on Wall Street and, ultimately, as a student at Harvard Law School. Mr. Williams does more than tutor; he instills the tools one needs to succeed in any endeavor.”

“He [Dr. Williams] was the most experienced, intelligent person I have ever met. He wasn’t all-talk. He was all-action. He knew exactly what he was talking about.
“Originally, I went to him as my SAT tutor. However, he taught me that I must have pride and dignity in who I am. He taught me to see that the most important thing to succeed is to excel in everything I do. He told me that I must have integrity and courage to gain respect and honor. Without these two, I will lose myself.
“He gave me confidence. I felt like I could actually do something in the world: I am me, and only me. I am important. He led me to believe that if I try, anything is possible. I owe my deepest thanks to him.
“When I met Dr. Williams, I went through a change. Ever since I’ve known him, I have seen the world from a different perspective…I have found what was missing from my life.”

“When it comes to education or educators, I can’t think of a greater role model than Dr. Williams.
“I have known Dr. Williams since 1990, when my daughter enrolled to study with him…Aside from preparing her for standardized tests, he was instilling in her a love for life-long learning and a desire for the quest of knowledge. He is truly an insightful educator who believes in developing the whole student.
