A lot of people don't connect clear speaking with writing skills, but I've noticed that lots of students, from elementary school through college make errors in spelling and grammar because of the influence of hearing others pronounce words incorrectly.
For example, "I don't know weather I'm going" or "Could you be quite, please? or "Me and my friend are...." The...

Do you have a friend you want to officially beat in a debate? Are my fees too high? Do you like showing off in front of people?
If this sounds like you than bringing a friend is the perfect solution! Friends are only 10$ more making it fun and cheap!
But all good things must end. The largest a group can be is six persons, no more. More than six is just redundant unless...

Public Speaking- From Fear to Fierce
I went to a high school that put great emphasis on classical skills: Logic, Latin, and Rhetoric. The term “rhetoric” has a bad reputation in today’s society that is completely undeserved. The word “rhetoric” simply referred to the art of communication, often
in public speaking or in discussion format.
That discussion aside, I loved the...
I used to be a quiet person who didn't like to talk in front of a group of people for fear of making a mistake and having them laugh at me. Luckily, I learned from my high school basketball coach that making mistakes is a good thing, and nothing to be
ashamed about. "How can it be a good thing?" I wondered.
She told me that my fear of making mistakes...
Philosophy of Education for M.J. T.
To me the purpose of education is threefold:
(1) provide students with a basis of knowledge,
(2) teach students how to reason so that they can continue their education throughout their lives, and
(3) instill in them a life-long excitement about and love of learning.
Students must acquire a basis of knowledge, a framework on which to sort...
My cousin once asked, "Where do you get your confidence?” Before I had time to consider the idea, the response came out, "I've made mistakes, and I'm not afraid to make mistakes in the future.” In public speaking, writing, and publishing; the speaker or
writer must be confident. Confidence builders for me always include preparation. Here are ways I prepare to write and to present...

Q WyzAnt wants to know
If you could go back in time and give your younger self one piece of academic or professional advice, what would it be?
My greatest piece of advice to my younger self would be to have more courage in following your true passions. For example, I knew very early on that I loved writing but was fearful that my writing "wasn't good enough" and that I...
I learned in my human development class that babies learn through repetition = Rote memory
You may have also witnessed the ease with which the ABC's were learned. Mary Had a Little Lamb? Twinkle Twinkle?
It is easier to commit something to memory through a song. Why is it so easy to remember that annoying tune on the radio?
To better memorize

IF I could go back in time and give my younger self some advice on how to be a better student, be more successful in school, life, etc, I would definitely tell myself that being involved in everything comes at a cost. It is better to find a few things that
you like to do, do them well and often, than feeling stressed because there is so much on your plate at one time. Being a 'Jack of all Trades'...
I have received this question many times in many forms. The short version is it depends on what you, the student, needs. Do you (or your children) need speaking confidence? To stop stuttering? To speak loudly and proudly? But below are some specific skills
and abilities I can teach in addition to whatever you need.
Proper body movement while speaking - foot work, hand gestures, even facial...
In my experience working with learners from various education levels and backgrounds, I understand the feelings of frustrations and concerns that many have when struggling with a subject or studying for a test but not receiving the results you would like
or expect. It creates a feeling of helplessness or the sense that you can't overcome or you'll never get it. That's not true. With the right...
