About Craig

I've been writing and communicating successfully and clearly in business for a long time. Along the way I have taught and mentored dozens of young employees in the art of writing and speaking clearly and well. Reading, writing, and speaking well are all a function of thinking clearly--and practice. And communicating well is an absolute requirement for succeeding at school, in business, and in life.

If you are challenged by any aspect of communicating (reading, writing, speaking) I can help you become more adept and confident. I love teaching and mentoring and get great joy out of watching students (or anyone!) overcome their anxiety and nervousness about how well they read, write, and speak English. It's all about building confidence--one step at a time.

I was an English major in college and then an editor at a major book publishing company in New York where my job was to read and summarize all types of books for publication. I have been a copy writer at advertising agencies and in marketing departments at major corporations. I am an avid reader and writer and love to teach students who think that reading, writing, and comprehension are difficult, maybe even impossible. They are not. You can do it!

I admire and respect students who want to do better and are willing to get one-on-one help with their lessons. It shows drive and perseverance and character. My goals as your tutor are to build up your confidence in your ability to improve your skills as a writer, reader, and communicator. Confidence is the key to doing well. You can do this. Let's give it a try.
