After the first lesson I can truthfully say that I'm looking forward to working with Bill. He's very approachable and down-to-earth, and he gives great feedback from the very start. It's easy to tell he's an excellent teacher!

I highly recommend Bill. I was looking for a voice coach to help me strengthen my voice for work presentations and found Bill on take lessons. I was happy to learn the Bill also frequently presents. Not only has he helped improve my speaking voice, he's also helped me improve my presentation style and calm the pre-jitters. Bill is prepared, on time, and a very professional. He's been so helpful, that I just recently signed up for even more lessons! Don't hesitate. If you want to get better, Bill's will help make it happen.

Like Adrian said, the basic package is pretty good and have solid information on how to be more efficient at using the vocal instrument better.

But Bill has a hard time being specific, if I didn't ask him specific question that he just resort into generic statement,

From time to time, he even has this passive aggressive attitude. I signed up to improve my speech and accent because I know I need to work on it. I don't know why he sometimes need to emphasis on that almost to the point of gaslighting but hey maybe he just had a couple of bad days.

There are four type of knowledge:
the knowledge that you know you know,
the knowledge that you know that you don't know,
the knowledge that you don't know that you know,
the knowledge that you don't know that you don't know.
If I know what I don't know then I wouldn't need to sign up for a class, I would just work on it.
People sign up for classes to move the fourth and third category into the first and second, so here is the lesson every instructor in every subjects should probably know.

I have taught many subjects to all ages for decades. My primary focus at present is English. Although I love teaching English in general, whether reading comprehension, grammar, or general verbal skills, my ultimate passion is writing. Expressing oneself in writing can be very cathartic, and I find that I enjoy helping students find their voice, their perspective and various ways of expressing themselves through the written word. Most students have something to say but lack the tools to effectively express it, so I patiently enlighten, empower and provide those tools.

have been teaching for five years. I match my curriculum to the goals of my students. I help with homework and add additional problems for the areas that they are having difficulty understanding. I like to use real life and visual representations as often as possible to help the student gain a more thorough understanding of the subject matter. I believe that learning should be fun and strive to inspire my students to enjoy learning even if they think the subject is a challenge.

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
