About Vivian Harte

I am delighted to be teaching self-confidence to you!  I have been a teacher for many years.  I taught college classes in the classroom for over 14 years at a community college and a private university, and I currently teach online classes on assertiveness, self-confidence, and teamwork.  I have helped over 15,000 people learn and use assertiveness skills during the last 16 years. 

I am the co-author of Self-Esteem for Dummies in the Dummies series.  But I didn't always have high self-esteem and self-confidence.  When I was a girl, I was shy and had difficulty relating to people.  I did well in school, but I didn't have close friends and I had trouble getting along with my family.  Finally, in college, I started joining clubs and making friends.  I learned I had a lot to offer, and my self-confidence began to increase. 

I'm a singer, and over the years, I've sung for hundreds of thousands of people, even having my own radio and television shows.   

I was the Chair of the Arizona Solar Energy Association as well as the Chair of Concerned Arizonans for Renewable Energy, a statewide group that created and lobbied for solar legislation.  I also was the Arizona Manager of the Southwest Public Recycling Association, assisting rural communities around the state to start recycling programs and educating the recycling coordinators in those communities.  

I am currently the President of the League of Women Voters in my town and part of the Speakers Bureau.  I was in Toastmasters for three years, so speaking to an audience is easier for me now - as long as I practice beforehand.  

I have two grown children, one of whom works at the University of Arizona and one of whom teaches high school students in China.  I live in Tucson, Arizona with my husband, three dogs and two cats.


I teach online courses on assertiveness and teamwork at


Bachelors degree in Sociology from Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, USA; and Masters degree in Public Administration from the University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, USA
