About Kathleen

My clients tell me they appreciate my ability to guide and coach them based on their individual strengths and their specific areas for improvement. That's great feedback because every executive is an individual with their own unique style and stength. Together with the executive, I quickly assess and recommend how to gain rapid improvement in delivering major pitches on key projects. The working sessions are typically held at a public library in a room reserved in advance.

My background as a Chief Executive Officer and a professional educator means I am a highly experienced presenter. I understand how to successfully "sell" an idea and address client objections. It is never "easy" to be front and center. However, specific, practical techniques can make your presentation polished and effective. With my doctoral degree in philosophy, I can quickly teach you basic standards for universal elements of thought. (This is what my clients tell me is "the secret sauce." To me, it's the easy button!)

If you need a little polish, some encouragement, a major overhaul, or maybe all the above, I can help. My work is confidential. The results will speak volumes!

My students tell me I am a great teacher because I quickly take what seems complex and make it easier. They like my tips, strategies, practice sessions, and how I share feedback. As a freelance writer, I appreciate the student's experience of doing their best work under pressure.

My clients and students get the results they are looking for. If you need honest, effective, and practical guidance -- we can quickly achieve the improvements you're seeking. Get in touch. Share with me whatever details you can. We'll come up with a quick plan and go from there!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. 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.

ACT Reading

ACT Reading Coach with a M.Ed. from Wayne State University. Former Reading Tutor with Read Right Systems. Five years experience teaching English & Composition at a private high school.

Public Speaking

My undergraduate degree from Oakland University is a double major in English and Speech. I was given a provisional teaching certificate by the State of Michigan for grades 6-12 in English and Speech. I taught speech for 5 years and was the forensic speaking coach for the Lincoln Douglas Debate.

As a result of my Master of Education from Wayne State University, I have conducted an average of 10 paid public speaking events a year for 15 years. That means I have delivered over 150 presentations to business and industry audiences.

Additionally, the work on my dissertation in Human and Organizational Systems at Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara, California required the analysis of many leadership presentations and decisions. This meant studying everything from printed management statements to YouTube videos to popular books by business leaders.

I have faculty references, business references, and transcripts to back up all my statements.
