She has also taught at local colleges' English Language Institutes. Her experience includes English teaching/writing for many years, ESL Coaching, and commercial voice-acting work.

In her classes, you will work on your pronunciation and self-expression, so you gain confidence using English in meetings, social events, and general day-to-day interactions. We will discuss real-life work or social situations and rely on multiple sources like movie clips, newspapers, magazines, the internet and other media of interest to YOU.

Lori combines years of experience facilitating groups and consulting one-on-one in business and home settings. She worked for over 20 years as a Manager of Training in a major engineering company. Her classes are designed specifically to your individual needs, are highly interactive, and fun -- because YOU are engaged and YOU do the speaking!

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have over twenty years' experience using platform skills, whether delivering a talk in a live venue, teaching, or presenting to multiple locations over the web as an 'mc' at corporate technical talks. I am currently applying presentation skills in voice acting venues, classroom instruction, and comedy improv performances. I taught public speaking for ten years in a corporate environment to all levels of technical professionals. I used technologies such as video recording to provide students with immediate performance feedback. I shared best practices to help students engage/use pre-presentation nervousness to their best advantage. I served as a graduate assistant for the Dale Carnegie program.
