About William

I have over 12 years of English Language Arts teaching experience in grades 7 - 12, with an emphasis on reading comprehension, developing vocabulary and improving writing skills. Whether you (or your child) are going through challenges in school or working towards college or career, my lessons will strengthen your (or their) abilities to advance successfully.

Prior to acquiring my teaching degree, I was employed for more than 15 years in various aspects of Marketing, Sales and Retail. I have a strong business background and can assist in making your communications stand out. I am keenly aware of the importance of proper wording, especially when you or your company's name is presented to the public.

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.

Public Speaking

Of note, I took Public Speaking as a college course during my undergraduate work. Additionally, I have presided over meetings using Robert's Rules of Order as President of my Homeowners' Association. Also, while holding this position, I frequently met with local government officials and presented materials for discussion and debate. Lastly, I have taught HS English for the past 12 years and incorporate speaking into all my lessons where all students participate in oral speaking and receive critical feedback.
