Project details

I am proud to offer my Comprehensive Concierge Programs that I created based on my 20+ years teaching as an English professor. These programs typically take place over a semester, a semester plus winter break, or a summer break.

Speed Reading and Comprehension Improvement (6 hours + outside work) lays out the foundation for the other programs and activates the learning process.

This program can be combined with either or both of the following programs, for totals of either 12 or 18 hours.

Study and Note-Taking Skills (6 hours + outside work), developed and taught at college level. This program includes examples of the most essential note-taking techniques from print, digital, and spoken word materials, all applicable to students’ own work.

Grammar Brush-Up (6 hours + outside work), improves your ability to communicate ideas clearly and effectively in all forms of writing and speaking.

The three programs above are usually 6 hours plus outside work. However, very slow readers, non-native English speakers, and people with learning or processing differences will often need an additional two hours, increasing the program fee(s).
