About Bill

My college degree from Ohio University is a B. S. Ed. in Comprehensive Communications. I taught English, journalism, and speech in Ohio public high schools for eight years. During that time, I was the faculty adviser on both student newspapers and yearbooks. I coached football and track. Post-teaching, I edited weekly papers for nearly three years. After journalism, I became a Technical Writer, and have done that for more than 25 years.

I am equally at home with grammar or literature. I am a big history and government buff, and I can teach those subjects, as well. I have written for for the aerospace, information technology, communications, and advanced medical imaging industries. I'm comfortable with technical material, but also I write fiction. I am the co-author of a book of short ghost stories that centers around the Geauga County/Chagrin Valley area, and I have edited both technical and fiction books for other authors.

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.

Desktop Publishing

I have extensive experience in designing and laying out newspaper and yearbook pages. I worked as a newspaper editor for nearly three years. I have worked with several software packages.

English

I taught English for 8 years in Ohio schools. My specialty is grammar, but I am very good at other areas of language arts. I was very nearly a social studies teacher. My teaching heroes were social studies teachers.
