About Eric

I enjoy the creative aspect of visually defining an English Language word for an ESL Student. I believe it makes the learning more engaged and fun! Allowing the ESL student to feel at home in a new country is also important to me. Learning a new language is a challenge - feeling welcomed while learning a new language should not be a 2nd challenge. With encouragement and patience I create a learning environment where students feel safe enough to expand their English Language Confidence!

I am a professional Hollywood Actor who offers in depth coaching on how to break into Hollywood. I help students mainly high school age and above to define their type for casting, how and where to create marketing tools, how to generate work and much more! Students at every skill level will feel welcome to stretch and grow as they reach greater levels of proficiency Working with Eric - Nothing is left to chance! You will be equipped to succeed!

As a Speech Coach I have coached high school and college aged students in all aspects of competitive public speaking. Curriculum includes material selection and cuttings, developing characters, overcoming speaking difficulties, navigating local, regional and state tournaments, integrating judges feedback to enhance their performance, and finally polishing performances to showcase on the National Tournament Level! - I am proficient! And you will be, too!

Analyzing literature for themes, plots, and characters archs are my forte. I have an acute understanding of basic human behavior which is central to good storytelling and good literature. I make use of that skill and my imagination to relate to the student varied ways to analyze literature. The end result will be the student having ownership of their own set of tools to then make up their own mind about a piece of literature and what it is speaks to them.

Proofreading is part of my perfectionism. Having a critical eye for detail is important. I have a specific back ground in Communications which allows me to review written material and identify where it can be adjusted or improved. During my work as a speech coach I have been charged with proofing written public address speeches to identify weak arguments, grammar errors and language use to form a cohesive narrative and ultimately proving a strong argument.

Public Speaking is my most well-honed skill. I hold a Bachelor's of Science in Speech Communication from Bradley University. I have coached high school speech students at the Bradley University Summer Forensic Institute. In addition I have coached at Limestone High School, Downers Grove South High School, College of DuPage, and currently coach Bradley Forensic Team members in Public Address and Interpretation of Literature events. Results have included several students winning local, regional, state and national Championships in their respective events. Be ready to work. Be ready to win.

I have personally won over 100 speech awards including 8 national titles! My awards included National titles in Poetry Interpretation, Dramatic Interpretation, Informative Speaking, Communication Analysis, and Duet Interpretation.

I believe you can succeed! Let's chat so I can get to know you, your coaching needs and how my skills, experience and concern can best serve you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught English as a Second Language at a Community College in Chicago. I worked with a class of 30 students using strictly English to educate and build confidence in the new language. I also make it fun so the experience is easy!

Public Speaking

I hold a B.S. in Speech Communications from Bradley University. While a student I competed in Forensics on the Bradley Speech team. During my experience on Speech Team I won over 100 awards including 8 National Titles and overall speaker my sophomore year.

Since I have shared what I learned as a coach for Bradley, The College of DuPage, Limestone HS, Downers Grove South HS and as a Private Speech Coach. Several of my students have placed in finals at state, regional and national competitions! One was national champion in Poetry Interpretation 2 years running!
