For students, academic success often depends on powerful language skills. You have to know exactly which words and phrases will say just what you want. Your best ideas call for the best treatment you can give them in vocabulary and grammar. I can't give you the ideas, but I can show you how to make your ideas come alive.
For professionals, it's no longer enough to have job skills; you need presentation skills. Most hiring managers are going to be more impressed by the way you speak than what's written on your resume. You need to show a recruiter, in the first 30 seconds, that you are the right person for the job.
I've been a published author since the early 1970s. My work's appeared in the Encyclopedia's Micropedia, on the NY Times editorial page, and in newspapers from New Jersey to Louisiana and New Mexico. This sort of professional editorial experience gives me the background to identify and correct your weak areas in reading, writing or speaking (including an accent).
In addition, I was a language coach for foreign-born students with the Princeton, NJ-based International Software Group, handling anywhere from one to 20 students per session. Since a too-strong accent often worked to an employee's disadvantage, I made sure that they became as proficient as possible in a neutral English voice.

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.
I have given speeches, talks both formal and informal in venues across the United States. I have spoken on such diverse subjects as "The Place of Poetry in Day-to-Day Life," "How to Build Confidence through Use of Power Words," I have been trained in classical methods of speech through intensive drama coaching and through modern methods designed for salesmen and top executives.
