About Terry

I'm not only a teacher, but a doer: a two-time National Magazine Award-winning writer, a top editor at the world's largest magazine, creator of one of the Web's largest news networks, ghostwriter to prominent business leaders, writing instructor at one of Americas largest universities, high-school and college valedictorian, and father of three scholarship-winning children who have excelled in both private and public high schools and colleges. I've consistently earned A's in every subject that I teach -- and so have most of the students I've tutored.

Soon to retire as CEO of a tech and media company, I've decided to dedicate part of my time to providing youngsters the same high-quality instruction and mentoring that I was lucky enough to receive from teachers, relatives, and friends during my own youth. I teach not just rules, but principles. I also teach winning attitudes. If I agree to work with your son or daughter, it's not because I need the money (I don't), but because I see potential. Your first hour, dedicated to exploring that potential, is free.
