I have taught Public Speaking and Oral Business Presentation Skills at the undergraduate and graduate level at The University of Michigan School of Communication and Ross School of Business as well as Madonna University and through The University of Michigan/Dearborn for Ford Motor Company employees.
I have my own coaching business where I concentrate on media training student-athletes as well as pro-athletes and executives. Additionally, I coach business executives in presentation skills.
However, I like to give back what I've learned through my years in the corporate environment and higher education research, so I'd be happy to help high school students as well.

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.
I am not a PGA golf pro, but I am an avid golfer and have played for a long time. I've helped many friends and golf league members improve their swings and enjoy golf more. I'm very patient and love teaching golf and helping people improve. I'm especially interested in teaching women.
I have a background in communications, marketing, media and PR. I have worked 20+ years in the marketing arena and currently teach marketing classes at Schoolcraft College.
