If you want your son or daughter to get into a good college with a good scholarship--or, if you are a college student who
needs expert help with a research paper--or, if you are looking for a way to distinguish yourself from other job applicants--or, if you want to excel on your job by writing hard hitting memos and/or articles--or, if you have a business and want attention getting letters, documents and press releases--I am the person for you.

I taught at LaGuardia High School of Music, Art and the Performing Arts--the Fame School--for 15 years, where
I helped students write essays and research papers that led to acceptance into top notch colleges with scholarships .One of my students won a- $80,000 scholarship! I also ran a writing program at New York University
and an MA program for adult students where many of my students went on to outstanding executive careers! I created and
taught a class, "Writing for Careers," where my students wrote resumes that got them jobs and memos that
gained them money!

I am a highly experienced teacher, professor and writer. I hold a Columbia Ph.D., in English and Comparative Literature. I have many years of experience working both with high school and university students. I wrote for the New York Times, Washington Post and many academic and professional journals.

If you want excellence and results, I am the person for you!
