I have been working as a public speaking coach for over 15 years. I have taken clients who could not even stand in front of a group let alone speak and directed them to becoming strong, self assured public speakers. I have worked all across the country and continue now to work with people either in person or remotely. My success rate is overwhelming and I have many references to back up my claims.
I also work with people who are looking for accent reduction help. I have been doing this for over 10 years also with great success and the references to back that up as well.
I graduated from Illinois Wesleyan with a BFA and have taken classes in Chicago, NYC, and Los Angeles as well.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

I graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University with a BFA in Theater. And have taken classes in theater and public speaking at Northwestern University as well. I have been teaching public speaking to groups and individuals for over 15 years. I have taken people who would get physically ill with the prospect of getting up in front of a group to speak to becoming the ambassador of public speaking for their firm/company, the "go to" public speaker. My greatest pleasure in life is the success of my students. And giving someone the ability to overcome the "fear" of public speaking is my proudest achievement each and every time I do it. I have had hundreds of students and all of them are my success stories.
