NEW! Public Speaking/Presentation is now offered in the Learning Center

Throughout each session, public speaking/presentation tutors will be focusing on these aspects of the tutee’s speech/presentation, so it is important for the tutee to specify which parts of the speech/presentation they would like to focus on during the session: 

  • Organization/Structure: Is the speech/presentation logically organized and easy to follow?
  • Evidence: Does the speaker utilize resources that support their argument? 
  • Nonverbal communication: Does the speaker display confidence, maintain a proper stance, have solid eye contact, etc. 
  • Timing: Is the speaker mindful of how much time to speak on all aspects of the speech/presentation in order to meet the allotted time?
  • Verbal communication: Does the speaker have good pacing, enunciation, emphasis, word choice, cadence, and pause effectively when speaking? Are there any vocal fillers that the tutee needs to avoid? 

Note: public speaking/presentation tutors do not focus on the content of the speech; rather, they focus on how the content is conveyed. Tutees who are wanting to go over the content of their speech/presentation should schedule an appointment with either a writing tutor or a tutor who is able to tutor the specific course.
