I have tutored both my children, who are now in high school, and many of their friends. My oldest had language retrieval issues, so we spend a lot of time boosting his English, vocabulary and grammar skills. He is about to go to Bates College on the strength of his good grades. I am especially proud of his writing ability, which made a difference when he applied to high school and college.
Besides English and related subjects, I am particularly strong in math, as demonstrated by my educational background. I have an undergraduate degree summa cum laude from Boston University in journalism and economics and an MBA from the University of Chicago.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you. I will ensure you take a more organized approach to all your schoolwork and boost your grades across the board.
I work in the advertising industry and routinely pitch for business, which has enabled me to hone my public speaking skills over a 20-year period. I have taken courses at Dale Carnegie and my employer has invested in providing me with one-on-one presentation skill-building as well. I have used what I have learned to help perfect the public speaking skills of my staff and to help my children with assignments that require that they speak in front of their classmates. Being a great public speaker requires a comfort level with the material, lots of practice and most importantly, that the speaker project an air of self-assurance. The support of a tutor can ensure early success, which will provide the confidence needed to excel in this area.
