About Melissa

Public speaking skills are essential to success in the business world. Unfortunately, the public speaking curriculum in most schools does not adequately prepare students for this aspect of professional success. As a public speaking coach, I help bridge the gaps between what schools teach and what will be needed for teens and adults to be successful in business environments.

I have experience working with students ranging from 8th graders to business executives, focusing on both content and delivery. I tailor my curriculum to your needs, helping you improve your weakest areas while building confidence in your strongest.

Qualifications:

* Provide one on one coaching and teach classes for students ranging from 8th graders to business executives

* Mentor Stanford Toastmasters, a public speaking program for Stanford Staff

* Facilitate Stanford Leaders in Communication, helping postdoctoral students improve their persuasion skills

I look forward to working with you and helping you become a better speaker!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Microsoft Excel

On LinkedIn's HR team, I was the resident Excel guru. I designed scalable tools using Excel to automate and streamline compensation and 401(k) reports.

I can teach pivot tables, v-lookup, conditional formatting, logic- based testing, basic Excel skills, and more.

Public Speaking

As a professional public speaking coach, I have experience working one on one and teaching classes for students ranging from 8th graders to business executives.

I've given workshops at Stanford University, guest lectured at Santa Clara University and coached clients at companies like LinkedIn, Symantec and Cisco.

Writing

As a professional public speaking coach, I often help my clients improve their speech writing, organization and grammar. I minored in Writing in college, and I've always had a very strong intuitive understanding of grammar. I love writing, and I'd love to help you or your child become a better writer!
