Mr William S. of Philadelphia PA USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mr William S.
Gender: Male   Age: 65+
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have been a tutor at the Center for Literacy since 1998. I have taught reading, writing and English as a second language to men and women from Korea, Senegal, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Hungary and Jamaica, as well as the U.S. I helped the man from Ivory Coast become an American citizen and am currently helping the man from Jamaica prepare for his citizenship test..

I have also tutored students at Germantown high school (with AmeriCorps) and the Lingelbach middle school.

Since I've been a professional writer most of my working life, as well as a voracious reader, I am uniquely qualified to tutor reading, writing, creative thinking and English as a second language. I have had 22 short stories published as well as hundreds of movie reviews.
