About William

Hello

I'm an excellent tutor in both English and writing. I'm a published author, I've written for newspapers and magazines (Salem Gazette, BlogCritics, Muddy Water Magazine) I have a literary agent and a novel being considered by major publishing houses. While writing is my strongest area, I have a strong background in English and English Literature. I attended the Breadloaf Writing Conference and studied with National Book Award winner Charles Baxter. I had a wide knowledge of both contemporary and classic English literature. As far as writing papers, I have excellent skills in teaching organization, composition, sentence clarity and persuasive argument. I've taught writing and English and I'm confident I can be an excellent tutor for you in these areas.

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.

Writing

I have published fiction, poetry, non-fiction and journalism. I wrote for four years for the Salem Gazette, publishing over fifty articles on numerous subjects. I also am the Boston Music Examiner for Examiner.com I attended the prestigious Breadloaf writing conference, and have studied with fiction authors Charles Baxter, Jill McCorkle, and Bret Lott.
