Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of public speaking basics and will increase their comfort with speaking in front of others. 
I am a licensed English teacher. I spent four years in a public middle school, and I worked with many students on public speaking skills. 
Students will be expected to prepare their own speech for the final meeting of this course. This might take about an hour each week to prepare. 
Students should bring something to the first four classes that they are comfortable reading aloud. Students will chose the material they bring to class.
Students will receive feedback about their presentation on our final meeting day.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Your child will speak in front of others. If they are not able to do this, I suggest a one-on-one meeting with the teacher before joining the class to determine if this will be a good fit.
