Hi, I'm Bill.

I tutor in subjects American Sign Language and English (writing, grammar, vocabulary, composition) as well as provide proofreading services. I received the "Top 10% Tutor Award" from Wyzant in 2020. This means I am among the top, elite 10% of tutors on Wyzant having consistently high student ratings, quick response times and providing consistently excellent tutoring services. I would love to tutor you.

I am currently retired after 45 years teaching American Sign Language and English to deaf and hearing students and serving as a school principal during the last six years of my career. I retired as a full professor of American Sign Language and Deaf Studies from the National Technical Institute for the Deaf where I taught for 26 years. Prior to NTID I worked as a Teacher of Deaf and Hard of Hearing students in middle school and high school. Over my career I have taught ASL and Interpreting to adult learners and English to deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing students.

I am a past president of the American Sign Language Teachers Association and have served on the ASLTA board in capacities of President, Member-at-Large, Treasurer and Newsletter Editor.

I am the lead author and project director of the "ASL at Work" curriculum published by Dawn Sign Press and used throughout the US and Canada at many programs teaching ASL and Interpreting. In addition, I have written and published many research-based articles in scholarly journals.

I am the co-developer of the Sign Language Proficiency Interview: ASL (SLPI:ASL) and can help you to prepare for taking this nationally recognized proficiency assessment as well as the ASLPI [a similar assessment based on the same principles].

I also tutor in English Reading and Writing and can help you with writing assignments, college essay preparation, and other writing and research tasks.

I am a homebrewer with over 40 years experience. Want to learn how to brew your own beer? I'll be happy to teach you or answer your questions.

I would love to help you on your jou
