About Bill Vasilios

I have been working as an ESL and Business English teacher in the United States and abroad since November 1998. I work with corporate executives who desire to improve their command of the language as well as with learners who prepare for various examinations such as the TOEFL, the Cambridge FCE and CPE, the Michigan ECCE and ECPE and the IELTS (my students' success rate is approximately 90%). In addition to teaching, I also work as an interpreter and translator. My translation work focuses primarily on business, legal and medical documents, but it also includes marketing and economics texts. I am currently preparing students for the TOEFL examination in the Dallas metropolitan area, while before that I worked for The Language Company at the Texas Wesleyan University campus in Fort Worth and for Felician University at the Northridge campus of California State University.

What I love about my work is the teacher-student interaction and the satisfaction they both draw from the entire process. Another extremely important element is my students' success which can really change their lives and help them achieve their dreams. Every test passed is a step towards a better future for them and brings happiness within their reach.

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.

Greek

I graduated from a Greek high school before my college studies in the USA and the UK (I am bilingual in English and Greek). In addition to holding a Greek high school diploma, I taught Greek to foreign executives who resided in Greece and I also worked as a translator and interpreter.

IELTS

I worked with both high school students applying for admission to a bachelor's degree program and college graduates who desired to continue their studies towards a Master's degree in British universities. I mostly used the Cambridge IELTS preparation material and methods which offered candidates the necessary set of skills. In all, I had approximately 50 students taking the test with a success rate of about 85%.

Public Speaking

Many of my adult students were high-ranking corporate executives who had to participate in meetings in Greece and abroad. For example, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Public Power Corporation had regular meetings in Brussels with European Commission staff. To help the aforementioned executives perform the task to the best of their ability, I taught them how to abandon their comfort zone, that is, their habit of thinking in their native language and then translating into the target language. I also worked on building their confidence by showing them how communication can be effective even when some mistakes are made.
