About Dimitri

I have experience in the business world as a professional writer, entrepreneur, upper management, financial consultant and project manager in Europe and in the US for over 20 years and have worked with individuals, small and family businesses, big companies and non-profit organizations. I have also been the chief editor for a magazine read by 12,000 people, for about 4 years and during that time I have mentored many young writers.

I was fortunate to work as an administrator of an IB school and to have the opportunity to provide guidance to students and their parents about choosing the right college and help them prepare outstanding applications.

As I have lived overseas for a few years, I fully understand people's needs for effective communication in English. I have worked with international students, newcomers from international organizations and their families and helped them with writing, listening, speaking, grammar and conversation skills in English.

My second language is Greek and I have attended part of my grade school in Athens, Greece. I have also worked as an interpreter helping business professionals and investors from the US.

Throughout these years, I have helped many students with papers, theses, college and job applications, interview preparation and have mentored numerous individuals as the leader/editor of a magazine writing team. I have also organized and implemented computer training sessions for individuals or small groups. My services have been highly appreciated as I offer effective and realistic solutions and for being an out-of-the-box thinker. I offer personalized attention and I take your success personally as a new challenge, from a small business plan or personalized coaching to a project management task. Using my experience and background I try to boost people's self-confidence, and make the best of their judgment abilities and skills.

I can effectively help you with Business and Finance classes, writing and presenting your papers, preparing for an application and/or an interview, developing your study skills, organizing your career and implementing your business plan, shape up your investments and finances and enhancing your computer skills. I have a B.S. and M.B.A. in Finance and multi-year experience in investment/real estate planning.

I have an expertise in helping graduate nursing students. If you need help with the data collection, statistical analysis or writing your DNP thesis, or with an EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE (EBP) and/ or PICOT project, please let me know. I have helped numerous busy nurse practitioners submit excellent projects and get top grades in their classes.

During my free time I enjoy playing and watching soccer. I have played in both my high school and college teams, for years and have taken soccer coaching courses in college.

If you want to get organized in school or work, enhance your study skills or better communicate your skills, I am looking forward to working with you. Whether, you are a student, or a professional, I can guarantee you a positive attitude, lots of patience and a big smile!

I hold an MBA in Finance and have a long experience from the business world having worked as an entrepreneur, CEO, a project manager, real estate and financial consultant. My experience comes from working in the US and Europe for over 20 years. I have successfully helped individuals (students and professionals), small and big companies and non-profit organizations.

Career Development

I have experienced changing paths in my own career and I have also the experience of the "other side" as I have spent more than ten years being responsible for hiring people. I have also worked at a non profit organization for creating networking opportunities for the alumni of a historical college. My expertise is on providing the resources, helping with resume writing and interview preparation and coaching individuals on best representing themselves, their businesses and their ideas. I can effectively help individuals ranging from college students to mid and upper career professionals.

College Counseling

I have worked in Europe as an I.B. administrator and also as an adviser for college acceptance and summer internships. Through my experience as the chief editor of a magazine for a few years, I have mentored many young people with essay and paper writing. From my business background, I have interviewed numerous people and am well aware of the interviewer's expectations so that I can coach you for an outstanding interview.
Through my background, I have the skills and experience to provide future college students all the guidance, for every single step of the way to their acceptance: filling out applications, getting transcripts and recommendations, writing essays and preparing for an interview.
Additionally, I can provide the guidance so that students target and apply to colleges that would be the right fit based on their goals, personality and academic skills.
Because of my long experience in dealing with students, parents and mentoring young professionals, I can help on building the foundations of a successful college application realizing and providing support for various life/family situations, language barriers and low self-esteem.


Through the years I have helped students and adults to master the concepts in written and spoken English as well as build their confidence with the language.


I have lived part of my childhood in Greece, and completed my middle school education in Athens.
I am bilingual (English and Greek native) and have a solid fluency and excellent pronunciation of the language. I can provide help to Greek learners at any level, whether the focus is on grammar, reading, writing, speaking or mastering conversation and/or communication skills.
In the past, I have worked as a tutor for modern Greek to numerous students and also as a translator of magazine and journal articles from English to Greek. Part of my education includes studying the ancient Greek classics like Homer and Plato (translated into modern Greek). If this is one of your interests, I will be happy to assist you.

Microsoft Publisher

I have worked as the chief editor for a quarterly magazine read by over 10000 people. I am "fluent" in using Microsoft Publisher not only for big publications but also for small newsletters, group announcements, advertisements, etc. and I will be happy to walk you through it.

Study Skills

I have a B.S. and M.B.A. in Finance and multi-year experience in investment/real estate planning. For many years, I have helped numerous young people (of all ages!) to make the best out of their studying time. For every stage of student life from elementary school to college, I have a lot of experience in helping students first master their study skills as a necessary path before they master concepts. This experience comes from the path structure of learning a foreign language and/ or a new computer software in a limited time. My extensive background ion helping people in both of these is what makes me really effective. The key to success consists of building confidence and time management skills. I also try to engage students using their common sense and understanding instead of memorizing. This way students never experience any frustration or disappointment as they maximize the utility of their studying.


My experience in writing consists of having worked as a consultant where I had to prepare numerous written reports and also as the chief editor of a magazine for four years.
I have helped numerous students and professionals to enhance their writing skills.
