I also realize that it's important to share some of my professional background with you, so here is the short version. I have taught GED classes while completing my graduate studies.

Dear parents and students: I am looking forward to assisting you in the areas of public speaking, proofreading, and professional writing. I also realize that it's important to share some of my professional background with you, so here is the short version. I have taught GED classes while completing my graduate studies. I have worked as a college professor for the last 12 years teaching undergraduate and graduate courses (masters' level courses). I have a doctorate in education with a concentration in instructional systems and technology. In 2006, I won the public speaking championship of North Carolina and then went on to place third in the semi-finals of the World Championship of Public Speaking.

I enjoy helping people communicate. If you want to be able to communicate, either in writing or through speaking, like a top performer, and are willing to follow a step-wise process, I can help you get there. I truly believe that you have much more potential than you realize. Remember, you're destined for greatness!

Also, my cognate area for my master's degree is remedial reading (which is one of the primary study skills that under-prepared students typically need assistance with). In addition, while completing my graduate studies I spent three years as a GED instructor, helping students with study skills and the following content areas: math, reading, English, writing, social studies, and science.

Highly skilled, caring, professional.

Simon was a great asset in helping my son improve his academic performance. He possesses an understanding of the underlying issues of challenging students and an ability to implement a practical and successful strategy for overcoming them. Simon was conscientious in communicating my son's progress and was open to receiving input and suggestions in his work with my son. In addition, Simon's experience in instruction at the college level provides him with insights into the student-professor dynamic. I would recommend Simon to anyone seeking academic support. You would be getting a caring and able instructor who offers a highly professional service.
