I am an award winning Professor of Humanities, Social Science, and Liberal Arts for 30 years at university and colleges including U. C. Berkeley. I have mentored more then 50,000 students into vocations and successful careers. I am an excellent writer and I have been published in a number of books and periodicals. I am also a distinguished public speaker and have presented at numerous conventions and conferences. I can tutor Social Studies, Humanities, Social Science, Ethnic Studies, African American Studies, Sociology, Religion,and Liberal Arts courses.
I'm a freelance university and community college instructor with over 15 years experience teaching and tutoring various subjects––from English literature and essay writing to creative writing, the humanities (history, philosophy, social sciences, and theology), and public speaking. I've taught at my alma mater New Jersey City University, as well as William Paterson University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Berkeley College, Bergen Community College and Hudson County Community College, and I've given lectures at Montclair State University, Columbia University, and Parson's School of Design. My own writing (poetry, fiction, and nonfiction) has been published in dozens of print and online publication, and I have given a TED talk on fundraising based on my book, Crowdfunding for Filmmakers. I'm looking to put my skills to good use tutoring middle to high school students (ages 13 - 18), college students, and professionals. Workshops and classes are also available, too––just let me know what you need and I'm sure I'll be able to oblige!
