I founded Bishop Consulting Inc. and created BEST WORD COACH with a simple purpose: to help people refine their English-language communication. I work directly with every client and personally manage each project. My goal is to customize my coaching, instruction, and consulting to meet a client's specific writing/speaking needs, priorities, and interests.
(Bishop Consulting Inc. is an S-Corporation chartered in 1999 in the State of New York.)
