  • English language instruction & tutoring

    Services for pupils in Gymnasium or students at the University, businessmen or businesswomen who are studying English and need additional guidance or tutoring for reading and writing skills.

  • English language conversation

    Services for students, members of the government, military and business communities who need practice or guidance before giving an oral presentation. Prepare for a speech in front of a large group with confidence that you will not be misunderstood. Practice your pronunciation and use of terminology. Even one meeting can be useful in helping you sound better. Prepare for your English language Matura exam or your English language Abitur exam.

  • Editing: Books, Doctoral Dissertations, Term Papers

    I provide the service of proof-reading and editing of your writing with my explanations and suggestions. Whether it is a short paper of 4-5 pages or a 300 page dissertation - you want to make sure that your work is properly written. Publishers will require a written contract but all others "pay as you go."

  • Web site English language editing

    Make your website attractive to the English language reader, whether it is in preparation and you need final editing or you need to correct existing errors, never let the world see your mistakes. I can also provide translation assistance from German or French into English for the web.

  • Research Assistance & Advice

    I can help you do the research and gather primary sources of information in your field so that you can focus on the writing and analysis.

  • Business consultant - USA

    Let me guide your through the rules, regulations and codes when you wish to conduct business in USA. Let me help you identify the correct marketplace(s) for your business in the 50 states.

  • Legal research & consulting - Pennsylvania and the United States Federal Courts

    As a researcher I serve as a "consultant" for you. I am not a lawyer (a graduate of a law school) nor am I an "attorney" (a lawyer who has passed the bar exam and can represent you in courts). I can conduct legal research and provide you with current case law if you are in litigation or preparing for future litigation in the Pennsylvania state courts or the United States Federal Courts. I can guide you through the Pennsylvania Code and/or the US Code when you are "stumped" or confused.

    I can teach you how to take legal action on your own, "pro se," without an expensive attorney. It can cost $150 to $600 an hour to engage an American attorney. I can help you get started for much less. I can teach you how to fill out the forms, how to write legal papers -- BUT I am not permitted to do it for you. If you actually need an attorney who can represent you then I can help you find a qualified attorney for you in your particular situation.

    American law is divided into two areas, CIVIL and CRIMINAL law. The legal system is based upon the British legal system in 49 states, the Napoleonic legal system is used in Louisianna. Let me help you achieve your goal at the lowest possible expense. Do your research carefully and pay attention to details before you file any legal papers.

  • FEES:

    Here is my fee structure and some examples:
    • You can hire me by the hour (or) for an entire day.

    • You show me your paper or dissertation to edit and I will determine your fee so you will know the cost before I start to work. A deposit of fifty percent begins the agreement. The balance is due upon completion of my work.

    • There are no additional fees added later even if I underestimated my time - the total fee is set.

    within Vienna, Austria:

    Hourly rates:
    1 hour:........ 125 euros
    4 hours:........400 euros
    8-hour Day:..750 euros

    Outside Vienna, Austria:
    I can travel within Europe to suit your needs especially
    to Berlin, Munich and Prague. All of western Europe can
    be booked if it fits into my schedule.

    My travel fee is 800 euros per day (8 hours) of work or consultation, PLUS
    all of my travel expenses (incuding transporation, hotel & two meals).
    I work in four hour shifts with a one hour lunch break.
    You can make the travel arrangements via train or airplane to fit
    your schedule and budget, but the return must be within the same
    calendar day before midnight to avoid being charged for a 2nd day.

    Additional days are discounted

    A one week arrangement (5 days) is discounted at 3,200 euros (20% discount) plus travel & hotel & meals.

    My usual practice is to have breakfast & dinner in the hotel restaurant,
    lunch is taken between the 4 hour sessions at my own expense.

    Longer arrangements are available - please inquire.

    I created this video in honor of the sport of GYMNASTICS
    and the gymnastic athletes from AUSTRIA.
    The photography is by Czech sports photographer Pavel R.
    and the music is by Rainhard Fendrich.
