About Al

I consider myself as one of those rare people who has always had natural gift for public speaking and giving presentations in front of groups. Public speaking is often cited as being the #1 fear fro many people, but fortunately it is a skill that we can learn and a fear that can be overcome with practice, coaching and mentoring.

I have dedicated my adult life to mastering the art public speaking and presentation skills. In my early career, I used these skills as a successful sales and marketing rep in some of America's top corporations, giving sales presentations to all levels of key decision makers in a variety of industries. Over the past 20 years, I have given hundreds of speeches and presentations and have mentored and coached both youth and adults to speaking success.

My goal is to help you to overcome your fear of public speaking and to help you to make a winning business presentation with hands-on coaching and mentoring. I can help you write and develop your speech or presentation, and will give you specific feedback on all aspects of your speaking style and delivery.

I am generally available for tutoring Mon. - Sat. from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and I can travel to meet students at a designated location. Since public speaking is something that you need to do in front of people, I recommend coaching in person vs. online. My base rate is $30/hour and I offer a package discount for multiple lessons - contact me for more details.

As an award-winning professional speaker and trainer, I have given and listened to hundreds of speeches over the past 20 years. I have honed my skills to be able to evaluate, analyze and make specific recommendations for improvement and will help you to practice and to incorporate these recommendations into your presentation. I am very patient, and I will help you to build on the skills that you already have.

I am passionate about public speaking and I take it very seriously. I have studied to become a professional my craft and I believe that communication skills are essential to helping people to be successful in school, work and life. My mission is to use my skills and talents to give back and help you reach your full potential as a speaker and presenter.

If you have a big presentation or speaking engagement coming up, or just want to improve your public speaking skills in general, give me a call. I will work with you to help you practice and will coach you to success!
