About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I am currently working on my doctoral degree in Psychology at Keiser University's online program. My long-term goal is to become an undergraduate professor and practicing psychologist at a university setting. Yet, my ultimate love is teaching. As a tutor, I enjoy making a genuine difference in the lives of students who have the potential to succeed in school, but just need that individualized attention to boost their level of understanding in subjects, level of comfort in subjects, and their level of concentration/ focus. As a tutor, I have five years of tutoring experience, working with students ranging from Pre-Kindergarten through 10th grade. In addition, I have special experience working with a range of students including those with Learning Disabilities such as Dyscalculia, Dyslexia, ADHD, and Autism spectrum disorder. My teaching methods emphasize successful tutor-student communication in which my pupils have a voice and presence in their learning environment. I focus on forming

I've been taking lessons with Ralph for almost a year now over Skype and I'm so pleased with my improvement. I'm always impressed with the preparation Ralph does for each lesson - a huge list of conversation topics or an article to discuss - and appreciate his enthusiasm, good humor, and patience. I started at an upper-intermediate level and Ralph has helped me refine the finer points of speaking to sound more native. Highly recommended!
