Expert Reading Comprehension/Writing/Language Skills Coach

Greetings. I would like to introduce myself and my services as a writing tutor. I'm an expert writer - and I know how critical this skill is in both the academic world and in life in general.

Study Skills

As someone who earned a GPA of 3.6 in college and 3.7 in grad school, I know all about good study skills. It starts with taking good, copious notes and - most important of all - re-reading the assigned texts in correlation with one's notes. I'm not a naturally organized person: I had to teach this skill to myself in order to stay on top of my college assignments. More recently, in the corporate world, I've led study groups for such dry topics as insurance-certification exams - showing my colleagues how to master the material and pass the tests they needed to complete. In summary, I can help your student become more successful in school through the development of effective study habits.


Marketing

I have an MBA in marketing from Fairfield University and have worked in marketing and corporate communications for approximately 30 years. I know it all - both online and traditional print marketing. Moreover, I'm an expert in many of the key sub-disciplines of marketing, including copywriting, advertising content and strategy, web content management, email marketing, marketing research (including compiling mathematical data and presenting it), and face-to-face sales. I've mentored and tutored students and junior staff in the workplace in marketing, communications, PR, writing, and publishing technology.
