About William


Bio

I am a graduate of Fordham University (1980) with a major in Classics (Latin and Ancient Greek). My mother was from France so French was the first language I heard in the home. While at college I pursued other Romance languages, and also have a general knowledge of other languages (both European and non-Indo-European).

I spent some time at NYU on Classical Arabic and Modern Hebrew, and was a regular assistant in several small home-school groups working with students in Latin and...

I am a graduate of Fordham University (1980) with a major in Classics (Latin and Ancient Greek). My mother was from France so French was the first language I heard in the home. While at college I pursued other Romance languages, and also have a general knowledge of other languages (both European and non-Indo-European).

I spent some time at NYU on Classical Arabic and Modern Hebrew, and was a regular assistant in several small home-school groups working with students in Latin and algebra.

I have been tutoring students - albeit at first informally - since I myself was in high school. In college I often worked with fellow students in Spanish, Latin, French, and German.

More recently I have been studying Armenian (both Classical and modern). I thoroughly enjoy the study of all languages, and also very much enjoy making this study accessible to people of all ages. I welcome the chance to share this interest with as many as possible.

An Excellent Tutor and Scholar

I found Bill to have a broad knowledge of French, both spoken, grammatically and the historical roots of the words. I believe he has the skill and knowledge to help me with my goals of developing my French from tourist exchanges to a conversational level. And I think we will have fun in this process, which I also call part of my Alzheimer’s Prevention Program. I also was impressed with Bill as a very scholarly and interesting person; and I will have to discipline myself to stay on subject with him. I suspect he would be an excellent tutor in Spanish and other linguistic studies as his knowledge of the origin of word roots is quite profound. He also seems to have a remarkable sense of sounds and the sounding of the words. I'm looking forward to my next lesson!
