About Bill


Bio

I'm 55 years old and I usually teach at the college and high school level. I have experience teaching writing, logic and literature courses. I've also developed learning modules and courses for general instruction. I believe that every assignment has the potential for a uniquely creative perspective that any student can call his or her own.

I'm 55 years old and I usually teach at the college and high school level. I have experience teaching writing, logic and literature courses. I've also developed learning modules and courses for general instruction. I believe that every assignment has the potential for a uniquely creative perspective that any student can call his or her own. Writing does not have to be the boring practice that many students fear that it may be.

Tutoring is taking the entire classroom experience and narrowing it down to the needs of one individual. What I enjoy about tutoring is the partnership between student and instructor that leads to problem solving and greater confidence with writing.

I'm a writer, painter and teacher, so creativity is at the heart of my approach to teaching. I believe that students need to be engaged in the process so that they can see writing and literature as forms of discovery rather than boring assignments that have no relation to their lives or their futures. To be an excellent communicator requires deep thought about what other people, such as authors and poets, have to say and why they feel that it is important. Any student stepping into a classroom becomes an author and a communicator, so it's in their best interests to learn how to do both well.

I've suffered through some dry, mind numbing classes that tested my ability to stay awake and alert. I assure you, this class will not be like that.
