I am a professional Tutor/Coach providing private individual or group Tutoring, Coaching and Training Services to Adult Learners. I offer my services (1) on a regular on-going basis; (2) as a predesignated number of sessions toward a targeted proficiency or accomplishment of a goal; and as short term/quick turnaround prep for tests/exams and “refreshers”. I also offer editing services for your written products, essays and web content.
I specialize in tutoring all aspects of the English language (including: Grammar, Vocabulary, Reading Comprehension, Writing) and English-as-a- Second Language (ESOL). For those entering secondary school/college, I specialize in SAT and ACT Test Prep (Verbal, English, Reading, Writing), as well as assist in entrance essay and interview preparations. For job seekers, I assist with the preparation of professional cover letters and resumes, teach interview skills, and provide tutoring for pre-employment exams (such as TOEFL, TEAS, FTCE and CJBAT). Please review my individual "Subject Qualifications" for more information.
I specialize in Next Level/New Direction Life Coaching. I can assist you in achieving your desired next level - personally or professionally - or in moving into a desired new direction in life. I can assist you in reviewing options, devising SMART goals, creating a plan of action, and most importantly, gaining the MOTIVATION and ACCOUNTABILITY needed to see it through to successful completion. I can assist you in moving past fear, procrastination, self-sabotage, lack of self-esteem, and disorganization ...into a better YOU...and a better life!

I hold both Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from Florida International University. During my career, I served as a senior level public administrator for the government, excelling in management, team development, and communications. Post-career, in addition to tutoring, I have also served for many years as a life coach, motivational speaker, workshop presenter and trainer for professionals. My native language is English and I also speak Spanish proficiently. I am a published author. My most cherished post-career accomplishment was being selected as the February 2005 Commencement Speaker for Kaiser Career College in Pembroke Pines, FL.
I enjoy tutoring a great deal - the subjects which I tutor are my passions and it shows! I am gifted to be able to spark the student's interest, hold their attention and maintain their focus by presenting the material in a variety of creative and innovative methods. I work to assess and address deficiencies resulting from earlier disconnects in learning, progressing the student at his/her own pace, while simultaneously challenging them to move forward to new vistas. I am a strong proponent of positive feedback and encouragement...building the student's self-esteem and confidence while building skill and proficiency in the subject area. Regular feedback and skill assessment is provided, as well as homework assignments (in most cases) to further hone skills and continue learning through consistent practice. Please read my "Student Feedback" to better assess the effectiveness of my methods!
