About Maurice

I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Management. Every month I host or attend celebrity events; i.e. Red Carpet Events, Comedy Shows & various Up-Scale Celebrity functions. I publish an entertainment magazine that gives insight to up-and-coming entertainers, while gaining insight from established actors, athletes and industry executives. I teach from experience, not just theory.

With over 15 years of corporate management (and three businesses of my own), I can explain what it takes to start, run and operate a retail business, while managing employees. My management experience includes two Fortune 100 companies (ATT, AutoZone) and two Fortune 500 companies (Radio Shack, Mens Warehouse).

I am a retired 24 year Army veteran (military policeman/logistician), trained to teach in simple terms that can easily be grasped. My approach is friendly and inviting, as to allow the student to learn and grow while feeling at ease. I have 7 years of active duty (1 year deployment to Kuwait & Iraq) and 17 years in the reserves - a total of 24 years of honorable service. I am a highly decorated/honored veteran.

I played college basketball, met, and continue to meet professional athletes (active and retired) who openly share their perspectives on the business side of sports.

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.

Basketball

I played power forward in high-school; Flint (MI) Northwestern. Some teammates went on to play professional sports and win championships. I received a full scholarship and played two years in junior college (Alpena Michigan Community College) and one year at University of Minnnesota - Moorhead. While at Minnesota I played under coach Dave Schellhase, who played one year professionally with the Chicago Bulls.

Business

I have a bachelor's degree in business. I've started and ran three businesses, one of which I still run today.

My clientele list consist of entertainment enthusiasts, actors, athletes, singers, rappers and entertainment executives.

I publish a hard-copy entertainment magazine.

Career Development

With 24 years of military experience, I have assisted in the career development of hundreds of young men and women.

In corporate America, I've held management level or higher positions, hired, cultivated and promoted dozens of deserving individuals.

I am a college graduate, received scholarships (NCAA and General Motors) and am a highly decorated (retired) Army veteran. My credentials offer many aspects of career development.

Marketing

I've successfully built a brand name for a business magazine over the last four years. I've been featured in two ABC interviews, attracted several clients and even established a subscription base - all through creative marketing. I reach target audiences and gain accounts, which translates to branding and money.

I've done this successfully in the private sector as well. I provided marketing campaigns for several California automotive dealerships.

Public Speaking

I host monthly high-level celebrity events. Every month I speak to hundreds of attendees, guests and executives. It is my job to communicate well to individuals and the masses.

As you can see from my "writing" certification (90%), I can put together sentences that flow, make sense and are grammatically efficient.

I have several celebrity interviews on Youtube.

Writing

I am the editor of a publication that is read by executives, athletes, actors and performers within various entertainment fields. It is critical to be able to write in a way that flows and is comfortable to the reader.

Although it may seem like it, most writing isn't at all that crucial. Actually, it can become fun even to those that dread doing it. All you have to do is approach it with a game plan and confidence.

Let's take the latter approach and make it fun as your daughter accomplishes her goal of becoming a better writer, finishes her assignment and/or prepares for an upcoming test.
