About Scott

Hi potential students/employers

In 2013 I returned to the U.S. after 30 years of overseas experience.

I taught English in graduate school for 10 years, and undergraduate school for 6 years. I have written my own Business Writing, Business Presentations, Public Speaking and Speech courses,
and taught them for the largest consulting firm in the world, Accenture Consulting in Thailand. I have trained over 5000 Thai managers in these courses.

I've conducted 15 of my Business Writing courses for Thomson Reuters, the largest education and news media company in the world.

I invented a commercial 3D animated computer pronunciation software program, Speak As You See (SAYS) to teach English pronunciation. Version 1.2 of the App is available from the App Store on iTunes.

I specialize in Business Writing, Presentation Skills, Conversational English, pronunciation, and executive coaching. Ten years of professional editing experience of M.A. theses, Ph.D dissertations, professional journal articles, speeches and presentations.

I currently do part-time on-line proofreading and editing of press releases for overseas clients such as Microsoft, BlackBerry, Apple, Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, Dupont, Dow Chemical.

I also have experience in radio and television broadcasting, voice-overs for animated films, and recording of professional training materials.

If you need someone with my background and experience, to help you attain a professional level of speaking and writing, please contact me.

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.

Public Speaking

I have 20+ years experience teaching Public Speaking and Business Presentation Skills to native and non-native English speakers, to graduate and undergraduate university students, to managers from Fortune 500 companies, and to private students.

I have written my own Presentation Skills workbook, which I give to my students and use for teaching and coaching.

I have won several speaking awards, and have a background in radio and television broadcasting. I have done voice-overs for animated films and recorded professional training materials.

Speech

I have 20+ years of teaching Speech overseas to non-native speakers of English. I taught Speech to graduate students for 10 years, and undergraduate students for 5 years. I have also taught doctors, lawyers, engineers and IT professionals individually to prepare and deliver speeches at work, and at professional international conferences.
