My name is William. I am a certified by the state of Florida to teach K-12 Spanish and 5-9 Social Studies. Furthermore, I also umpire high school baseball. I am required by the state of Florida to have cleared a background check and have a copy of my fingerprints on file with the state.
I taught high school Spanish 1 and 2 for five years. I also taught 7th-grade Social Studies as a long-term sub for four months.
In addition to the areas in which I am certified, I am also very good with elementary math through percentages. I expect my students to rise up to the challenge of learning the subject I am tutoring. I have access to materials in a variety of subjects to help students succeed. All I ask is that students and parents trust my methods. The activities and my methods may not always be fun, but they are effective.
My goal is to keep in line with the school's curriculum and get students caught up or ahead in the concepts with which they are having difficulty. The benefits will only be realized when the student is successful in the demands the state put on him or her. That's why I will give students assignments and assessments to help them better understand the concepts and allow me the ability to see where we are succeeding and where more work needs to be done.
My rate is $60.00 per hour and I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. Lessons may be made up, time permitting. I also welcome feedback from parents regarding my performance.
I look forward to hearing from anybody who believes that their child can achieve great things with my assistance. My name is William.

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.
I am a certified teacher in K-12 Spanish. In order to teach Spanish, kids must know basic English. I spent a lot of time in my Spanish classes teaching kids English skills. A a substitute teacher, I was a long-term sub for ESOL classes, which means I spent a lot of time working on reading skills with the kids. I am very good with match basics: adding, subtracting, multiplication, long division, fractions, decimals and percentages. I know how to read, so I can help students with any subject, which requires reading, such as science and history.
I was born in Miami and learned to speak Spanish before I learned English. I minored in Spanish at Appalachian State University (1979). After a career in journalism, I was hired for my first job teaching Spanish 1 and 2 at Lake Region High School in 2005. I went to Lake Wales High School in 2008, where I continued teaching Spanish 1 and 2 through 2010. I was named Teacher of the Month in May of 2010. My mother is from Colombia, South America, and I have visited the country 11 times.
