About Benjamin

Are you terrified of public speaking? Have you read all the books and articles, but nothing seems to help? Do you want to become passionate, powerful, and persuasive?

I teach by example. I explain what I am doing and how I am doing it. No matter what the topic or style I can and will break it down for you. I have been a professional coach for 10 years with 20 years of public speaking experience.


But that's just the beginning. I have experience with every form of public speaking there is.

After graduating college I began working in politics. I worked on multiple campaigns where I was promoted to captain, then coordinator, and finally acting manager. I won all of my campaigns.

In college I was the captain of the mock trial team, but we didn't have a coach. This meant that I was the captain, coach, and administrator.

In high school I was the captain of the speech and debate team, most awarded speaker for the model United Nations team, and my senior year I became the coach of my new schools speech team.

Even before high school I was where you would expect me to be. The leading role in theater, the funny kid among my friends, and I loved to talk.

My first time in the newspaper was when I was six. My first time on television was when I was eight. At 14 I was a youth correspondent for KRCB Radio.

Along the way I studied rhetoric, joined clubs (Toastmasters, JSA, etc), and learned a whole lot.


I am familiar with every form of public speaking from oratory to improvisation. I have even performed stand up comedy. I have trained students and professionals of all ages. I am comfortable with any problem related to speech.

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.

Public Speaking

In addition to my public speaking history I currently work with many clients:

I am a high school debate coach.

I am the head public speaking coach of two organizations dedicated to serving kids.

And I work with private clients like you!
