About William


Bio

I started my career in education 10 years ago, tutoring students in German at Truman State University. Since then, I've been fortunate enough to have taught both German (at the University of Missouri-Columbia) and English (at the Philipps University in Marburg, Germany). I've taught beginning and intermediate-level German and German History, as well as English writing, grammar, and conversation courses.

My favorite aspect of teaching is seeing my students improve day over day and week over...

I started my career in education 10 years ago, tutoring students in German at Truman State University. Since then, I've been fortunate enough to have taught both German (at the University of Missouri-Columbia) and English (at the Philipps University in Marburg, Germany). I've taught beginning and intermediate-level German and German History, as well as English writing, grammar, and conversation courses.

My favorite aspect of teaching is seeing my students improve day over day and week over week, both in terms of their language skill, and the confidence that comes along with it. Few things were better than seeing a student who was struggling at the beginning of the semester improve to a point where they were thriving and excited to move onto bigger challenges by the end of the semester. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you to get you to the same point!

I have taught the following German courses:
- Beginner's German at Kirksville Middle School in Kirksville, MO (2004-2005)
- Beginning and intermediate German at the University of Missouri-Columbia (2006-2011)
- German Civilization at the University of Missouri-Columbia (2011)

I have also tutored German, either through Truman or Mizzou or privately, from 2004-2011.

I taught English writing, grammar, and conversation courses at the Philipps University in Marburg, Germany (2007-2008).

I have also tutored English composition privately from 2007-2011.

I look forward to the opportunity to help you reach your academic and personal goals!

Excellent tutor

William evaluated my current level and is tailoring his curriculum to help me achieve my timeline goals. He's also taking into account other training tools I'm using, and working with them in conjunction.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor, computer skills

Will is very knowledgeable in the area of computers and technology. He is helping me become more adept at using various devices, including a desktop, laptop, and mobile devices, to best advantage. He allows me to proceed at my own pace, and answers all my questions to the best of his ability; whenever he does not know an answer, he makes it a point to find out before the next lesson. Will is friendly and patient, and creates the ideal learning environment by treating me as a peer. I highly recommend him.

Patient and smart!

My son is very quiet and has little confidence in the subject. He easily could have completely clammed up but William was very patient and supportive. My son even enjoyed his lesson!
