About William

I am a former English language instructor, with 3 years experience teaching adults and university students in both Korea and China. My major in university was International Studies, with a minor in Communication. Through studying and working abroad on many occasions since high school, I had the chance to learn much about other languages and cultures. In working as a foreign language instructor, I learned an excellent technique known as Student Centered Learning. This technique focuses on engaging and building on existing language skills whenever possible, using teacher explanation only as a last resort.

In addition to offering insight on grammatical accuracy and conversational fluency in English, I am also able to offer much insight about writing. In high school I won awards as a writer and editor for my high school's newspaper, and also have taken courses in both Expository Writing and Business Writing. I can offer helpful insight for writers of all levels from beginners to university applicants. As an avid reader and scholar of communication, I can help with building vocabulary in both writing and reading. I look forward to helping build students' skills and excel at any subject where I can be of assistance.
