About William

I have taught all subjects in high school social studies. I am also certified to teach high school German. I taught at a private high school on Long Island for the past 25 years. I have had great results teaching regular and honors classes. 95% passing rate for reagents exams in global and US history.
My approach to teaching is thematic and chronological. I provide historical context as well as insight. I have a passion to understand which I love to pass on. In all subject areas this is necessary but it is especially so in today's globalized world.
Learning any subject area engages the human mind with its world. It can be realized by any student who naturally desires to know. I hope to develop this desire which can lead to economic as well as personal growth.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Political Science

I have a bachelor of science from the University of Scranton where I took many classes in political science. I spent a year in Germany during my junior year studying German and German culture at the Goethe Institute, as well as at the University at Freiburg. I studied political philosophy and political science at St. John's College in Annapolis, MD, during a summer semester. I have taught high school social studies for 25 years and still continue to read and learn which is my primary passion.

Social Studies

I have a master's in teaching of the social studies from Stony Brook University. I am certified in the state of New York to teach social studies and German from grades 7 to 12. I taught high school social studies for 25 years and continue to love learning about people, their history, and our common world.
