Hello, I am William G. B. I was born and raised in Mesa.
I completed my Master's degree in Linguistics, which was offered as an Interdisciplinary study within the Liberal Arts and Studies Faculty at Arizona State University. While a Masters candidate, I sought study in Pragmatics and Syntax. My study included research of mobile technologies and their influence on formal written language texts. My research included developing specific pools of test subjects and gathering samples of their SMS texts messages. My subject pools varied in gender, age, and social strata. I drew high praise from my thesis committee and graduated successfully completing all theoretical and research qualifications with high marks.
I also have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Linguistics. The course of study included Second Language Acquisition, Phonology, Morphology, Syntax, Pragmatics and English Language History. I graduated with my B.A in English Linguistics with Cum Laude Honors.
While an undergraduate and graduate student, I attained fluency in over six different languages: Serbian, Croatia, Macedonian, Bosnian, Old Church Slavonic and German.
Previously, I was a full time ESL Instructor of Al Kaleej-Direct English Sari Branch in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I completed my one year contract this past July 2012. I have more than eight years' experience teaching English as a second language. Of those eight years, I have three years teaching university level English as a teaching assistant for composition, literature, and linguistic courses. These experiences were garnered at Arizona State University in Phoenix, Arizona, University of Sichuan in Chengdu, China, and the private business University of the Zagreb School of Economics and Business.
My research and teaching philosophies reflect my joy for life, and serving those which have a similar desire to accumulate more knowledge to enjoy and mutually respect all of the world's inhabitants. I have a passion to teach the English language. I believe this may be achieved by using three means. First is the individual desire from a student to attain English for themselves. Second is the instructor's readiness and preparation for their students to transfer intelligence, and last is the implementation of educational technologies, such as websites, smart boards, database web forums, and Powerpoint presentations to be used as supplemental tools to maximize students' language success. I love to teach and serve people who have a desire to learn English and how to use it more efficiently and effectively. I believe teachers are means to a better future, and are vessels, which will solidify common grounds for people to connect with each other. I believe there is no such thing as a bad student only a bad teacher.
My website is used as a supplementary tool for my English students' success to learn English. The design and implementation was contrived and designed by me. This website displays my continuing commitment to provide methodological, and theoretical second language acquisition, while maintaining the highest professional standards for my students.
I look forward to hearing from you, and appreciate your consideration.
