I successfully completed two speech classes while a student at Columbia University.

My pronunciation is excellent, and I speak standard American English on the level of a radio or television news reporter or anchor. I have taught public speaking in English classes and have tutored and critiqued students preparing to give presentations and dramatic performances.
While teaching English on the Middle School level for over 25 years, I have prepared hundreds of students for their state ELA exams.

I am well versed in both the NY State Regents English and Math exams and can definitely help students to improve their scores in both of these exams.
