30 year retired Business and Policy prof offers English, Business, and/or Policy lessons in Madison, WI

Methodology

My teaching method is similar to sports coaching in which I work with the student to identify strengths and improvement areas, set achievable but challenging goals, and help the student achieve those goals in a friendly, supportive, fun environment.

Background

I have taught numerous Business and Public Policy topics at 5 well-known universities since 1990 to nearly 3000 students at every level --- bachelor's, masters, and doctoral. Many of these students have become leaders in business and public organizations and in academia, helped by my extensive knowledge and experience in each of these important sectors.

Rates

Details

Rate increases 10% for each mile of travel. Most preferred location for in-person tutoring would be the UW-Madison Memorial Union (for the standard rate). First lesson is free.
