I write a nationally syndicated workplace advice column and teach writing at two local colleges. I may be more expensive than other tutors, but I am among the best writing teachers/private tutors you will ever have. My writing ability ranges from business to creative to features to public relations and advertising. I excel at writing resume, cover letters, and college admission essays.

I have received stellar evaluations from both students and administration. I have worked with all levels of students, and I use many teaching methods so the student WILL LEARN regardless of his/her educational history.

Writing is an art and a science. I recognize raw talent and can help direct it; I also have worked with students with learning disabilities, and I will be honest about the student's ability to learn. Telling students they can do ANYTHING they want is wrong, because it sets them up for failure. I can't teach math; but if you want to write, I can teach you any style, any media.

I will adjust my fee if a student wants a series of tutoring appointments.

I counseled individuals involved in mass layoffs, as well as delivered 3-day resume and interviewing workshops for Drake Beam Morin, an internationally known outplacement firm. I received the Stellar Performance Award for my commitment and results helping people to become more successful in their job searches.

If a student is undecided, I have administered assessment tests and counseled individuals to help find the path that best suits their skills and talents. I have also guided people through my syndicated column, At Work.


I have tutored ESL college students, achieving positive results in helping them improve both their written and verbal language skills.

I was a regular guest on TV38, a Christian station featuring a talk show called "Among Friends." I appeared every three weeks to answer viewers' workplace problems.
