About William

I have recently returned from working abroad, in Mexico and South Korea, as an ESL/English instructor. During the past ten years, I have worked mainly with elementary and middle school students. I also have experience working with high school students and adults and on occasion have proofread and edited documents.

Prior to teaching abroad, I was employed at universities in North Carolina and assisted students intending to study abroad as well as those who came from other countries to study with us. In addition, I have tutored many students over the years, in English and other subjects.

When I meet a new student, I like to learn about their interests and I do my best to gauge how they learn best, adapting to each situation in order to most effectively assist the student in gaining confidence and ultimately proficiency in their target area. I try to keep the learning environment relaxed but focused. I encourage students to use what they know and build upon that. Working together, we accomplish what we set out to do.

I am able to effectively work with people whose backgrounds may be quite different than my own. I am not judgmental and am willing to tutor anyone that needs help. I only expect students to do their best and I promise to do likewise. I hope they will enjoy studying and make progress during the time we are together.

Finally, I am willing to travel to assist students that may be farther away. So don't let distance deter you!

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.

ESL/ESOL

For the past ten years, I have been employed as an ESL instructor in Mexico and South Korea. I continue to maintain a good relationship with my previous employers and also continue to assist former students online as the need arises.

Phonics

During the past ten years, I have assisted elementary level students in phonics, both within the classroom and during private lessons.
