Students tell me that I help them to become more successful than they ever thought possible.
I have long been sought by the most effective people in the world to help them advance the state of the art in what they do. From these experiences, I have a unique perspective on what it takes to be extraordinarily effective in important tasks. I take delight in meeting and sharing these insights with young people and seeing them excel beyond their dreams.
The difference between someone who is outstanding in performing a task and someone who is average can usually be found in only two to eight practices ... which are unique to that individual. My strength is quickly identifying these differences and demonstrating easy ways to eliminate them. Consequently, my students rapidly become the highest performers in their classes and schools. When it comes time to apply to a highly competitive college, professional or graduate school, or for a job, these students are highly sought by admissions officers and employers. My students obtain merit scholarships and bonuses seldom offered to others.
I am good at explaining subjects in simple English in many different ways so that it's simple and fast for someone to learn. For instance, in standardized test preparation, students who can quickly stop doing old practices have told me that they achieved their target scores after only one tutoring lesson. English and writing students usually advance two grade levels within three months. Students who have worked with other tutors say that they learn four to five times faster with me.
Each student is different, and I adjust each session to focus on what will help that student the most. My philosophy is to teach the student to excel beyond what occurs in a classroom ... rather than just cover the subject from the text's perspective.
I love it when my college and high school students send e-mails for help with papers due in a few hours. It's never too late to create a great paper.
Since I teach students to become outstanding and don't need much time to do it, the total cost of working with me is less.
I have an undergraduate degree in history from Harvard with high honors. My thesis was placed in the permanent Harvard archives. I am also a graduate of Harvard Law School. While in law school, I studied marketing and strategy at Harvard Business School.
I am an author or coauthor of 14 nonfiction books, write professionally about business and education as well, and have one global best seller (The 2,000 Percent Solution). Many people describe me as the most popular book reviewer in the world.
I have been a part-time online business, economics, history, law, science, social sciences, and writing professor and tutor for graduate students in more than 60 countries around the world during the last ten years. One of my tutees won the Texty award for writing the best new physics textbook for college students. For over a decade, I've also been teaching art, business, problem solving, and reading in local adult education classes.
Over 50 of my clients for whom I did career counseling went on to become CEOs of Fortune 500 companies.
I'm the founder of the 400 Year Project (working since 1995 to develop ways to accomplish 20 times more with the same or less time, money, and effort). Successful breakthroughs have been accomplished in more than 60 countries by people applying the project's methods.
I am also an entrepreneur who has started more than 100 businesses. My main enterprise is a management consulting firm. I am considered an expert on business innovation, business-model innovation, and entrepreneurship. Rather than being someone who just teaches how to do better, I'm someone who has led a life of high accomplishment.
I'm a member of the Massachusetts bar.
