About Bill

Why you should choose me as your teacher: Teaching experience: I've taught English and rhetoric in Taiwan, learning skills to secondary school students in the UK, and beginning Chinese and English for Academic Purposes to adults through the Open University. I've recently earned a CELTA certificate. Learning experience: I've studied French and Chinese, and lived and worked overseas, so I know what it feels like to be learning a foreign language. Language skills: I have a degree in Comparative Literature from Princeton. I've written a book and many magazine articles, edited magazines and newsletters, and copy-edited and proofread for Oxford University Press. As an American living in the UK, I have a thorough understanding of the differences between American and British English, including spelling, usage and grammar. I've even 'translated' EFL learning materials from British to American. Personality: I'm relaxed, patient, curious and attentive. I let you do most of the talking.
