Present Like a Pro- Improve Your Public Speaking Skills and Confidence
In this ongoing class, each week learners will pretend to be different presenting styles to improve their public speaking, and presenting skills, or build their confidence, it is also perfect for any budding TV presenters, or YouTubers.
In this ongoing class, each week we will develop our public speaking/presenting skills and speaking confidence in a fun way, by pretending to be different TV or YouTube presenters. Each week the learners take it in turns to choose which style of presenting we will explore next. The list grows all the time, but learners can choose from areas such as: News, Nature/National Geographic, Science, Space/Astronomy, Chemistry, Mathematics, Lifeguard, Giving instructions, Weather, Arts, Crafts,...
Learners will learn how to present themselves more professionally and confidently (verbally and non verbally) through tips, techniques, and personal anecdotes from a presenter who has worked across many media.
I have worked as a live presenter (events, theme parks, holiday camps, and hotels), on TV, and as a radio presenter. I have also recently branched into creating and presenting drama teaching videos, and YouTubing. I am a fully qualified teacher (BAPA, PGCE) with 16+ years of experience teaching Drama (and some Music, PSHCE, and English) in bricks and mortar schools, where I currently still teach part-time, including running small group and 1:1 confidence-building workshops. I also have many years of experience leading community workshop schemes (like create a play in a week) and local drama groups for ages 4 to 16. As a professional actress, I've performed to children from ages 2-14 in theatres, arts centres, social clubs, historical properties, nurseries, and schools. Playing roles such as the Gingerbread man and a tortoise, to a wartime headmistress and Queen Elizabeth the first! With lots of Q & A and interactive workshops along the way. I have produced and directed many productions (musicals and plays) as well, including some I have written myself.
Learners will need to be able to confidently read up to 2 paragraphs of text which will be presented in the chatbox. I am happy to help them pronounce any difficult words or new vocabulary though.
Please note that learners will need to be able to use the chat function in Zoom and be able to read up to 2 paragraphs of text to be able to access this class fully.
