I am a personable, easy going, good-humored tutor who is passionate about science, writing, business & project management, math, and world travel; and, who thoroughly enjoys coaching and mentoring others.

I was a research meteorologist / scientist during the opening chapter of my career. Focusing on honing technical expertise in computer applications development and infrastructure deployment, I became proficient in technical writing, public speaking, and business oversight. These skills helped to lift me to positions of Senior Vice President and Senior Managing Director in large, global companies. As such, I was awarded Distinguished Alumni status from Purdue University, where I earned my MS degree.

Living in England for several years enabled me to conduct business throughout Europe and Asia (and naturally, in the USA, my home country), and so, I am accustomed to working with folks from all walks of life. My wife and I raised two children who are now successful, independent adults, and who are out on their own. We discovered that active engagement in every phase of their education meant that they could pursue and earn any career goal that they sought. I can bring that same engagement and excitement to others as well.

If you feel you have a need to advance the essentials required to become a productive and successful student, technical resource, and/or business executive, I am at your service to provide salient guidance that will earn you tangible success. Please contact me.

Business

My career commenced as a software engineer with expertise in meteorology. It evolved into myriad technical roles and led me into middle management, an ultimately into executive management with firms specializing in IT products and services. My chosen career path allowed me to conduct business in over 30 countries. I earned a corporate-sponsored Advanced Managed Program certificate from Harvard Business School.
Project Management,

Project Management

I earned a certificate in Project & Program Management from General Dynamics Corporation. In the period that followed, I led numerous high-visibility projects and programs, some which had implications to the defense industry. I also oversaw a number of project leader seminars whereby I joined other peers in inculcating neophyte project managers in the use of sound project management practices and tools.
Public Speaking,

Public Speaking

Spanning forty years, my career covered both technical and managerial roles, up through senior managing director / senior vice president in large corporations. To achieve that level of management demanded strong verbal communication skills - both written and oral. During the period of my tenure with companies over four decades, I crafted and delivered over 3,500 presentations. My mastery of PowerPoint is unsurpassed, but more importantly, I can convey the embedded messages with clarity. I can show you how to do the same.

I hold BS and MS degrees in physics, applied physics, and meteorology (atmospheric sciences). I worked as a research meteorologist for a Connecticut-based consulting firm in the first five years of my career. Meteorology is a childhood passion that prevailed throughout my adult life. I enjoy following recent technological advancement in the field and have passed my love of physical science to my kids.

Herb is very knowledable and patient

I needed help with my Microsoft Excel skills for a project I have been working on. Herb gave me a tutorial on various functions in Excel. He is knowledgeable, patient and a great teacher!

Great class - Coaching

He is a nice coacher, I am sure he was born to teach. He has a uniquely inspirational and influencing coaching style. His classes are tailored to the student, unlike standard teachers who do not prepare for the class he does his studies about the subject before the class. When he speaks demonstrates the mastery of his domain, not surprising that he went to Harvard. He is great coaching for aspiring professionals, he has the mindset of an executive and can coach you in getting a better job and help you with the aspiration that you are looking for in your career.
