Hello…
I am confused between "I will be available on 1/1/2001" and "I will be available for 1/1/2001". I think both of them mean I will be available only for that certain date which in this case is 1/1/2001. What if I want to say I will be available since certain date? Can I say "I will be available 2 weeks from now" and "I will be available 2 weeks from accepting date"?

Thanks...

I will be available on 1/1/2001. OK.
I will be available for 1/1/2001. Not the best possible way of saying it. It seems like a contraction of
I will be available for you on 1/1/2001.

When should we make the appointment?
Let's make it for 1/1/2001. (You make an appointment for [date]) (More common.)
Let's make it on 1/1/2001. (You can also make an appointment on [date]) (Less used.)

I will be available two weeks from now. OK.
I will be available two weeks after I've accepted. OK, but not used much. It's difficult to imagine a lot of contexts where this would be a useful thing to say.

I have been available all day. OK.
I have been available since last Tuesday. OK.
I have been available since 1/1/2001. OK.

Correct me if wrong.

> "I will be available on 1/1/2001" and "I will be available for 1/1/2001"
I don't think the second one is correct.
I would say I will be available for help, comment etc. (= for something you can do/offer etc.), but not you can offer a date which m#does not make any sense to me.

Relating to your second question,
> "I will be available 2 weeks from now"
It can be regarded as wrong (especially for serious writer).
You should say:
- ... (with)in 2 weeks [NOT "after"!! It cannot be used when it refers to from now to a certain time]

>I will be available 2 weeks from accepting date
A preposition is missing.
You should say:
- I will be available after 2 weeks from accepting date
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
 CalifJim's reply was promoted to an answer.
>I will be available two weeks from now. OK.
I would like to emphasise that point.
I was told by a native speaker that it is not a good/natural way to say like that. If strictly speaking, it is incorrect to say in that way.

Instead we should say:
- I will be available (with)in two weeks.

Using "from now" is simliar to the following:
-You say "I will go to school next day" (very unnatural!) instead of "I will go to school tommorrow" (natural!)

Any comment is welcome
