I am a published author. "The First Fig Tree," a novel (nominated for the Booker Prize) and "Men of Vision: Claflin College and Her Presidents," a history, are my major works.

I have worked in network television news and also taught English and Liberal Arts courses at the university level.

As a tutor, I'm particularly interested in helping high school students and adults who want to upgrade their educational skills, complete courses or seek undergraduate degrees.

Tutoring sessions are specifically designed for each student. Patience, encouragement and building confidence are always included in each session.

My skills and experience in the area of public speaking include: 1) A semester course in public speaking - Grade A 2) Three years in a debating society 3) Exercises in voice and enunciation 4) Years as a high school and university guest lecturer 5) 15 years living in England, where I was a guest speaker in literary forums I consider myself to be an effective and credible public speaker, with years of experience and an understanding of the components of addressing a group of whatever size. Standing before an audience can be a very successful and rewarding discourse when confidence is apparent and respect for an audience, as individuals, is communicated.

Extremely knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Vivian is an awesome tutor! She is very friendly and aims to make sure you really understand the material. I loved how Vivian took extra time to do research on her own, making sure she was best quailified and up to date for the paper she was helping me with. She explained the material to me in ways that were very easy to understand and actually made history interesting! I would highly recommend her!
