About Ben

Besides years of professional communications positions in business, government and nonprofits, I have taught writing, public relations and marketing part-time at N.C. State University. I am an entrepreneur who has run his own communications consulting firm. I also coach college students to reach for their peak performance and explore careers, through goal-setting, time management and communications skills.

My ideal student is ambitious and already performs well, but wants help to achieve an edge in academics, extracurriculars or personalization of their education. Encouraging students to take advantage of campus resources that are already available for free or at a low-cost is a hallmark of my coaching services.

I have taught or held professional writing and communications positions at the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), National Education Association (NEA), N.C. State University, as well as in the semiconductor industry and entrepreneurial technology ventures for nearly 30 years.

Please contact me to discuss your goals and how we might work together.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Public Speaking

I have been a professional communicator and marketing executive for almost 30 years, including teaching public relations, writing and marketing part-time at NC State University. All of my communications classes have required either individual or group presentations as part of the curriculum. My business experience has required hundreds of presentations in meetings with clients and in front of large audiences. Also, I have developed presentations that were delivered electronically, via the Internet, telephone conference calls and on television.

Writing

I have been a part-time communications instructor at NC State University and have a 30-plus year career in public relations and marketing. I also coach college students to reach their peak performance and explore careers.

I delivered an awesome presentation! Thank you, Ben!

Ben helped me overcome my life long fear of public speaking or at least be successful with two hour long presentations that I had to do for school. I had been worrying about them for two years, wondering if I could even do them. Ben gave me expert advice and tips that helped me believe that I could do this and that I could do it well! He believed I could do this!! I would love to take my passion f
