Introduction: ONLINE communication coaching of ALL ages is my sincere passion! Dealing with people’s livelihood and young people’s skill development is very important to me, so I patiently and enthusiasticlly coach many LIFE and BUSINESS essential communication topics from Public Speaking to ACTING and VOICE to Sales Training to Job/School Interviewing to Business and General ESL to even strategically critical thinking games of POKER and CHESS! If you’re indeed serious about next level learning, ask me about a FREE online complimentary session to showcase my unique approach. I am willing to do that so that you have 110% confidence in your trainer decision! I’m so appreciative of the wonderful response here on Thumbtack. I have classes seven days a week! My Momma always said, “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life!” Very true. Limited openings so contact me to review options and let’s get you started right away! SPECIAL NOTE: All coaching prices are now largely discounted for a limited time due to recent circumstances of COVID-19! But. Will be going up SOON due to appreciative demand and simple limitation of available coaching slots. Let's set up a brief call to discuss TODAY!

It’s always a wonderful opportunity to connect the kids with other children their age and chess level to play. What a terrific way for kids to make new friends too! Modern pen pal! Especially during these Covid times.

Coach Schulman has been helping me refine my presentation skills. I find him extremely engaging and thoughtful. His lessons are well planned and thorough. I’m still in the learning process but I find that my presentation skills have already improved. Thank you Coach Schulman! I really appreciate your insight! You are a pleasure to work with! I also appreciate that you understand that your clients are busy professionals and you are flexible with your calendar!

Coach Joshua Schulman's reply
It’s a pleasure working with you, Carmen. Flexibility with schedule is certainly important with busy professionals these days! Glad to accommodate!

I started taking chess lessons with Josh a few weeks ago and have already noticed a difference in my game. He provides great resources outside of our scheduled lessons that make learning the game an ongoing discipline. No tests, books, or filler exercises, which is important for adults who want to learn the game, and can only dedicate a few hours a week to it. Highly recommended for those on tight schedules as Josh runs efficient lessons. Thanks, Josh!

Details: 26 - 44 years old • Beginner • I don't have an Elo rating • Once a week • 45 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

Coach Joshua Schulman's reply
Always a joy teaching chess to adults! Great development, Hugo! Interesting to see the transferable skills we learn! From the board-game to the board room! …or the Zoom room!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Contact me to discuss. I have various pricing options. As a speech coach I work with children on the Autistic spectrum all the way to seasoned CEO’s and sales teams. So the prices vary for needs. Pricing is based on tailored programs particularly for your needs and often can accommodate various budgets using live or online modalities. Please note. Live face-to-face sessions are only in Southern California. But these days with COVID-19 all sessions are online with students all over the world. It works great! Like we're in the same room. Affordable and effective. You'll see!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Initial consult to clarify and identify specific goals, then a weekly tailored syllabus will be designed for your private coaching or team training program. If qualified and sincere, I often will offer depending on availability a free 60-minute session for absolute confidence in your trainer decision to work with me.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Extensive storytelling and performance value training with Drama and Theatre degrees from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and the University of Southern California, as well as thirty years of corporate training sales management and sales training experience in addition to active competitive public speaking wins in over 40 speech contests including third place in the Regionals of the Toastmasters’ World Championship of Public Speaking. As an actor, I have performed in over 50 professional plays, had a professional Shakespeare company, a member of SAG/AFTRA for 36 years and have done over two dozen national commercials.
