Public Speaking

My course begins with the basic elements of the theory and method of effective and responsible public address;then students are exposed to a variety of speech situations; relevant technology; analysis and criticism. Next, students are taught skills in composition and delivery of speeches to inform and persuade. For six summers, as an adjunct instructor for The University of Georgia, I traveled the Southeastern United States conducting communication seminars, “Teaching the Tough to Teach” workshops, and doing motivational presentations for educators who work with at risk children. I have coached first place winners in the Mock Trial Competition, Optimist Club and Woodmen of the World oratorical contests, from local through national levels. I am currently working part-time as an adjunct English instructor at Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia.

Outstanding Tutor!!!

Dr. D. is a great tutor. I have been out of the classroom for almost twenty years. I was very anxious and intimidated about the subject matter. He was very patient with me, and very encouraging. Dr. D. simplified everything for me, and taught me how to really understand Literature. He was very accessible, and responded very promptly any time I contacted him. I will highly recommend him to anyone needing assistance. I was very lost when I started the World Literature course, but after being tutored by Dr. D., my final grade was an A. His fees are very reasonable and worth even more. Thank you so much Dr. D. for your assistance, and thank you WyzAnt.
