About William

I'm a certified teacher with degrees in Bilingual Education and Linguistics. (Soy maestro bilingüe. Enseño inglés, lectura, matemáticas, y tecnología para todas las edades.) I have over ten years of experience tutoring and teaching. My day job is teaching Spanish to elementary kids, but I have experience tutoring all levels, from kindergartners to adults. I'm also a techie!

I am available to tutor in nearly any subject K-12 but where I especially shine is in my work with elementary-age kids. Struggling readers, kids who think math is evil, and kids who just need a slight boost or extra challenge will all find that some experienced extra attention was all they ever needed to reach their full potential.

In the area of Spanish, I am fully fluent and grew up learning it from my step-father and his side of the family. (In other words, I don't have a "gringo" accent.) I have studied and volunteered extensively in both Mexico and Spain. Whether you want to simply learn the basics for your next visit to Latin America or want to rid yourself of your accent while perfecting your verb conjugation, I'm your tutor.

English as a Second Language (ESL) is a speciality of mine as well. I have taught ESL to all levels, from Pre-Kindergarten to adult, and have five years of classroom teaching experience specifically in the area of ESL. I have worked with students from every continent except Antarctica, and whether you want to improve basic skills or even advanced grammar for a test or formal writing, I can help.

Finally, I'm a computer geek and thankfully I can translate from Geek to English too! Before I caught the teaching bug in college, I was awarded a scholarship from my university's Computer Sciences department, competed and placed highly in various computer science competitions, and received a perfect score on the highest level computer science Advanced Placement test available. More recently, I have taught classes ranging from robotics and video game creation to classes that cover general computing skills. Whether you want to learn about Windows, Mac, Office, basic video editing or even get started programming, I can help.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

C

I have been a self-taught hobbyist programmer for over 15 years. I received a perfect 5/5 on the Computer Science AB Advanced Placement test in C++. I placed highly in various computer science competitions that utilized C++ in high school. I also co-taught my high school's most advanced computer science course which involved material that went beyond any of the Advanced Placement tests.

C++ and C are highly related languages and I have coded extensively in both.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an active Professional Colorado teaching license with multiple endorsements, including one for teaching Elementary K-6. I graduated with a degree in Bilingual Education specifically geared towards elementary grades.
