About Bill

I am a writing tutor, and an editor. I can also help people with their reading skills. I'm the author of a novel, and I've published short fiction and a memoir. I've tutored and taught composition at the college level, and I believe that each student and tutorial session is unique, and should be tailored to the individual's inclinations and current circumstances.

I enjoy helping others, because it makes me feel useful. I attended college late in life, and during the decades prior to my formal education I was an obsessive self-teacher, out of both instinct and necessity. This is why the learning process itself has always been of special interest to me. When I entered the teaching profession finally, I was able to apply much of what I had learned from self-teaching by helping students get past their own, often very unique, individual obstacles to acquiring literacy and the ability to write clearly.

I have a BA in English and Art History, both from Rhode Island College, and an MA in Creative Writing from the same institution. I also have an MFA in Creative Writing from Oklahoma State University. I taught Composition and tutored undergraduates at OSU for eight years.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you need assistance!

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.
