ESL (English as a Second Language) or ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) refer to the studies of the English language by non-native English speakers.
Having lived for more than ten years in the United States and Taiwan, I have experience working with ESL students from both countries, and am familiar with foreign cultures and different ways of teaching students' whose first languages are not English.
Public speaking is delivering deliberate speech to a group of people with the intention of informing, persuading, or entertaining them.
It is a skill that everyone should possess, one that will come in handy in every situation.
As a communication major at the University of Illinois, I focused on public speech, taking classes in debate, persuasive speaking, speech-making, and speech analysis. I participated in several extracurricular activities that required public speaking, and emceed several conferences.
I can coach you in whatever field of public speaking you would like to focus on, from speech-writing to presentation.
