    What I know is that 'would' is the past tense and participle of 'will'.
    Also, 'would' is used to express uncertainty while 'will' is more certain that what is said would be accomplished.

    Re: Will & would

    Would is,sometimes, the past of Will
    In the present: I'll see you on Monday (I'm free and have plenty of time)
    In the past: I'd see you on Monday, but I really have something important to do.

    I'm not a teacher, hope this helps..

    If you say "I would see you on Monday", it is expressing a future intention.
