We'll have a video discussion to fully understand the student's needs. If I can help, then we discuss and agree on specific goals, and a plan of action.
The coaching is typically online as most students are too far away. Some students receive in-person coaching.
We will work with whatever projects/assignments the student wants to use. If there are none, I'm happy to provide them.

I am a state and national champion in multiple countries in multiple categories of competitive speaking/debating. I have a 30-year career as a business executive and a professional coach.
