Anthony G. far exceeded my expectations. He was patient, very knowledgeable and an expert in his field. I highly recommend him for assistance on any speaking engagement. He was always available and worked around my schedule. A true professional.
After our successful initial meeting and evaluation, I formed some fairly high expectations of what I thought Tony would be able to accomplish working with our son. It is now 2 months since that meeting and I could not be more pleased to report that my expectations have been exceeded. My son enjoys working with Tony and the improvement that he has made stands as a testament to the efforts of both.
I moved here from China a few years ago, and am still working on improving my English language skills. Tony's training and coaching has made me a much more confident speaker, and has helped me improve my command of English. He was also of great assistance in editing my admission essays and preparing me for my interview with an outstanding boarding school.
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 over 25 years of practical managerial and executive experience in the telecommunications industry, where I handled organizational development, employee communications, and diversity and inclusion planning. I also have a certification in executive coaching from Penn State University's Smeal College of Business.
I have assisted a number of students successfully navigate the college application process, with a special focus on essay preparation and interview skills. Students I have worked with have been accepted into prestigious schools such as the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Virginia and Boston College, to name a few.
From 2008 through 2010, I worked as an instructor in the MBA program at Stevens Institute of Technology, where I developed and delivered a course in business communications and business presentation skills. The student body in this program is high technology/information technology centric, and approximately half of my students were ESL students whose primary language were from the East Asian family of languages (i.e., Gudrati, Hindi, Malayalam,etc). Other students came from China, Japan, Russia.
More recently, I presently teach public speaking at the undergraduate level, and anywhere from 30-50% percent of my students are ESL students.
Accordingly, I have extensive experience working with students who are not native English speakers, assisting them with grammar and syntax, and with both spoken and written proficiency.
Additionally, I have demonstrated success in teaching business writing and speaking skills to foreign-born professionals for whom English is a second language.
I have 15 years experience in corporate communications handling both internal and external communications for senior executives at a Fortune 20 service company. This includes creating presentations, writing speeches and various other communications, and providing coaching to improve the speaking skills of the executives I supported. I am also a college instructor in public speaking and executive communications, with experience teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
I am an experience college level instructor in communications and public speaking, with expertise in helping students express themselves with great clarity. I have also assisted students improve their articulation and pronunciation, and to reduce their accents.
I have helped students of all ages and skill levels to sharpen their buiness and academic writing skills. I also work as a college-level instructor in communication and public speaking skills.
