« Perfect! I really enjoyed working with Bill. Although I wished I had more time to dedicate to my classes, the hours I spent working with Bill have been very helpful and valuable to me. He is a very dedicated professor who spent time to understand my needs before we started the lessons. He customized each classes to respond to my needs and took the time to research information which I always found very useful. He brought very useful business related and cultural information. I can only recommend him if you're looking for a dedicated, engaged and fun English teacher. »

I will help you create, write & edit compelling,English-language documents on virtually any topic.

Methodology

I am the author/producer of 30+ non-fiction books and and also am a retired professor of International Management for the University of Texas at Dallas. I will help you improve your proficiency in written English using learning methods & tools that are directly relevant to your business and professional objectives.

In today's world many writers work without the benefit of an editor, and as a result their finished product is less effective at communicating their knowledge and ideas than it could be. I can help you take your manuscript, paper, report, presentation or proposal to a level of professionalism that you will find difficult to achieve on your own.

Background

I have been teaching and writing on practical approaches to communicating effectively in English for over 30 years. Almost all of my work has been with business and technical professionals who want to be more effective at creating compelling English-language professional and technical documents, presentations, advertisements, marketing plans, business reports and proposals. I can also assist you in writing and editing clear and accurate, high quality academic papers, dissertations, and case studies.

When I am working with a student as an editor, much of my editing work is done offline. The student always knows beforehand what my estimated time is for each portion of the editing work that I propose, and the student is free to ask me to meet their budget constraints if necessary. The online portions of our work together is a matter of coordinating their writing with my editing, clarifying their evolving goals, and consulting on the finished product.

Details

My approach to editing your work assumes that you are already reasonably competent in writing in basic English and would like to work on becoming a better written communicator in Business, Professional or Technical English. My editing services are intended for adults professionals with high standards and serious objectives. I am also available to work with small groups that share common objectives in virtually any field of written English, such as a software development team or a marketing group.

Bill's resume

I will be happy to work with you on documents that you are already in the process of writing - I am not a "ghost writer"; in other words, I will not write for you, but with you.

Since I have been teaching spoken and written English for many years, and have published over 30 books on a wide range of non-fiction topics, I understand the processes of creation, editing, and publishing very well.

I can help you improve the quality, clarity, and effectiveness of any English-language document that you are creating. Whether your document is a full-length book, a script, a business report, an academic dissertation, a public presentation, a proposal, an analytical paper, or a case study, we can work together to make your document the best that it can be.

Perfect! I really enjoyed working with Bill. Although I wished I had more time to dedicate to my classes, the hours I spent working with Bill have been very helpful and valuable to me. He is a very dedicated professor who spent time to understand my needs before we started the lessons. He customized each classes to respond to my needs and took the time to research information which I always found very useful. He brought very useful business related and cultural information. I can only recommend him if you're looking for a dedicated, engaged and fun English teacher.

Xin

Excellent! Bill is both a nice person and effective teacher. He is easy to talk with and focuses on forming a good relationship with the student. Based on students' needs, he creates new customized teaching methods on the fly and ensures the specific requirements are addressed. I highly recommend Bill as an English teacher.

Bill's response

Working with Xin has been a great teaching and learning experience. His field of Computer Science is very demanding that he speak, clear, concise technical English while thinking "on his feet". He is dedicated, smart, and works diligently at mastering English on his way to becoming a first-class university professor and ground-breaking research scientist. Xin has challenged me to find new ways to help him learn, and together we have achieved real, measurable success.
