About William

Tutoring over the last twelve years has brought me a lot of joy. I enjoy watching students improve, make connections, and having that "ah-hah" moment. My academic expertise and life experiences provides me with the ability to assist learners of all ages.

My four years of classroom teaching experience helped to develop my skills in reaching multiple learning styles. Recognizing and building on the strengths of each individual student is key to my tutoring approach.

I am a fluent Spanish speaker who has lived and traveled in Spanish speaking countries. I served as the director of a Spanish language school in Guatemala and have over 1000 hours of tutoring Spanish.

While stationed as a Peace Corps volunteer in Kazakhstan, I served as an ESL teacher to middle and high school students. I teach reading and writing using the Turabian method, which emphasizes making personal connections with the text. I am passionate about helping all students develop their skills as readers and writers. I enjoy tutoring in English, writing, reading, and history.

I have a BA in History and MA in Latin American Studies. Furthermore, I am a nationally competitive distance runner and enjoy a number of other outdoor sports, including backcountry skiing and mountaineering.

Please contact me with any questions you might have. I am always happy to provide references.

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.

Reading

I use the Turabian method to tutor reading, which is a student-centered method that allows the student to create personal meaning with the text.

Spanish

I have twelve years of Spanish tutoring experience. I also directed a Spanish language school for foreigners in Guatemala.
