About William

I started tutoring my nephew in math while he was in high school. With a college degree and a career in helping others I thought in working with him we could be a successful team. After three 6 weeks we had completed high school algebra 2/trig. with an "A." Now my other nephew is taking the same subject and has asked me to be his tutor. While my degree is not in math I have been successful in working as a team with both of them, to not just pass but to be successful. I thought this was a great opportunity to expand and tutor also in the areas of my degree of writing and history. My goal with all students is to see them succeed in understanding the material not to just a level of "getting by," but in knowing the material so they can move on to higher levels.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

While in college I worked as a tutor at the local elementary school helping a different child each semester. Starting in 2006 my oldest daughter was enrolled in kindergarten and I have worked with her and my other two daughters, currently in 3rd grade and Pre-K, ever since. I also have several neighborhood children who come to my home for help and I also tutor my nephew. I am an active volunteer in their school and am currently tutoring a learning disabled adult in elementary math.

Public Speaking

As a Broadcast Communications graduate I have spent countless hours in front of a camera and in coaching on air news talent on techniques in speaking to the camera. I spent 6 years as the Executive Producer of a newsroom, coaching and teaching 3 dozen or more employees on public speaking. I currently deliver training to more than 900 employees at my current job and am a certified trainer through Achieve Global.

Study Skills

Having worked as a tutor for more than 3 years I have come to find with all of my students, study skill improvement has been the key to them improving their understanding of the subjects they are having difficulty grasping. I feel that my educational and professional background qualify me as a study skills tutor. I was able to complete all necessary work to obtain my Bachelor of Arts college degree, with a double major, in just 3 years. The study skills that I applied to finish at such an accelerated rate are the same skills I teach to my students. I also am currently certified as a soft skills trainer, teaching managers of people how to handle different situations they encounter with their work force.
