About Bill

I have over 20 years experience teaching English to speakers of other languages and I love this work. I am also a long-time language learner and have achieved different levels of fluency in Spanish, Polish, German, Chinese and French, so I know the challenges and frustrations of learning a second language. One of my specialties is improving pronunciation. I know that it is one of the hardest things to change once someone has already achieved reasonable fluency in the new language, but I also know that with the proper guidance and motivation, it's certainly achievable. I also see how favorably people respond to a foreign-born speaker of English who has worked on his or her pronunciation compared to someone who makes the listener work to understand him or her. Of course, getting better in a second language requires work and an adjustment of attitude, but it doesn't have to be painful, boring or slow-moving.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
