Hi, I'm Bill.

I tutor in subjects American Sign Language and English (writing, grammar, vocabulary, composition) as well as provide proofreading services.

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 would love to help you on your journey in mastering ASL or English. I make learning fun in a supportive, encouraging environment! Please do not hesitate to contact me. I would love to be your tutor.

Great service and knowledgeable tutor!

William helped me edit two of my college level essays. I was really impressed with all of his edits and I appreciated all the comments and suggestions he left for me to learn from. I also couldn't believe how fast I got my work back. William is definitely knowledgeable and I am planing on using his help again.
