I have a degree summa cum laude from Boston University in journalism and economics and an MBA from the University of Chicago in marketing and finance. During the week, I run a branding and marketing company in New York City. I have tutored both of my sons since they were very young. My oldest will go to Bates College in September on the strength of his good grades. My youngest, a sophomore, has also become an exceptional student.

My belief is that English, grammar and presentation skills are fundamental to academic and business success. Achieving mastery in these areas requires the type of one-on-one instruction that is not available in the classroom. My experience, patience and skills can make all the difference for your child. I also can help your child become more organized, which will result in improved performance in other subjects as well.

Because my children have become so self-sufficient, I have more time on my hands than I used to. I like working with young children and would welcome the opportunity to tutor yours. I am available most evenings and on the weekends.

Elementary (K-6th)

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.

Public Speaking

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.
