I am an adjunct professor at a leading university, published author, communications coach, and attorney with over 25 years of practical and academic experience.

Over the years, I have helped scores of students, business people, non-English speakers, and professionals to develop high-level writing, English, public speaking and presentation skills to out-pace their competition. I also help students to analyze, understand and communicate complex business and legal issues.

Students consistently give me high marks for my practical tips and insights, my commitment to their advancement, and for giving them the confidence and competence to achieve more.

My areas of expertise include: basic and advanced writing; English; advanced editing and proofreading; public speaking and presentations; government and politics; business analysis, and law.

If you are applying to college, graduate or professional school, I can provide insights on how to create a compelling essay and personal statement.

If you are preparing for an important interview for a new job or school, my expert tips, guidance and insights will give you an edge over the competition.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the pursuit of your goals, and wish you much success in the future.

Remember, all of the top performers in sports and business have coaches, and I believe top students should, too.
