For more than five decades I’ve devoted myself to the art and craft of communicating in words – as a journalist for print and broadcast media, as an academic, and as a public-relations practitioner.
But perhaps my greatest rewards have come from sharing my knowledge and skills as an English tutor, writing coach, and independent editor. I’ve helped hundreds of clients – native speakers and those new to English, students and established professionals – perfect their communication.
