"Is English your second language? Do you wish you had more confidence in your ability to speak English at work or in college? Do you want to improve your ability to convey your thoughts in clear and succinct written English?

If so, then let’s work together. I am a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School and a member of the bar of the U.S. Supreme Court. In my career as a lawyer, I worked in private practice as a trial and appellate lawyer, taught legal writing and research at Brooklyn Law School, and served at a senior management level in New York City government. I gained extensive public speaking experience, not only in court, but as a guest speaker at continuing legal education events and professional conferences at the local, state and national levels.

I currently teach in the Intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) Program at a Community College, where I have also taught Business English, Accent on Fluency, English for Academic Purposes and a wide variety of ESL levels. I have coached students from over 30 countries on how to make effective and clear presentations in English on a wide variety of topics, ranging from international trade and business, to health care, technology and current events.

In addition to my teaching, I write a bi-weekly ESL blog for TESOL International that is read by ESL teachers all over the world. I have recently been invited to speak about my innovative approach to teaching ESL at several conferences sponsored by New York State TESOL, including the Applied Linguistics Winter Conference at Teachers’ College in March 2014.

If you feel you need extra help with grammar, I will show you how to use a small handful of very practical Internet websites to practice and polish your ability to master the English system of verb tenses. If you need help preparing for a speech or a presentation, I will us" less...
