Public Speaking

I took classes in public speaking in high school and college. I was also on the high school debate team and placed second in the district. I also routinely speak at service clubs and public events. I find the organization of a feature story for a newspaper and preparing a speech to be very similar.

Paper to edit

I absolutely loved Bob! He is an outstanding editor and writer, Bob helped me with a letter that needed some adjusting so that it would make a whole lot of sense to the reader. Bob got the job done for me and made my letter flow beautifully! Thanks Bob!

Very nice tutor!

We read a text from Stephen Crane's "The Open Boat". Bob taught me SAT vocabulary words and an assortment of homophones. He gave me many reading tips. Bob is a nice tutor, and I intend to keep classes.

Fabiano, 1 lesson with Bob

Great Editor!

I worked with Bob for two solid hours on a admissions essay for an Ivy League undergraduate school. Bob is an amazing listener. He could listen to me talk about stories and show me how to relate them to my personal essay and the assigned writing prompt. At first I dreaded if I could manage turning in a good essay before the application deadline. With Bob helping me, I know my chances of getting in to my school have increased drastically. Thanks Bob!
