I think that I am strongest in quickly determining the areas in which you need help, and will work with you in a positive manner to improve your understanding and performance so you can achieve your goals.

Public Speaking

I believe I am qualified to provide tutoring in public speaking because of my training and speaking experience. I have successfully completed the Toastmaster's International courses for both the CTM (Competent Toastmaster) and ATM (Able Toastmaster). I was on the board in our Toastmaster's club and served as president, which entailed conducting the Toastmaster general meetings and board meetings. The requirements for the CTM and ATM designations include speech presentations of various types, some of which involve the use of visual aids and A/V equipment. All speeches are timed and formally evaluated. I in turn also evaluated other speakers in the club. Aspects of public speaking in these evaluations included the speaker's body language, use of microphones and visual aids, timing, eye contact, and use of the voice, as well as comments on the content and organization of the speech itself. In addition to participating in Toastmasters, I have given several public presentations, including lecture-demonstrations on musical subjects as well as several presentations of papers at academic conferences. I have also served as president and ran the weekly meeting for a social organization. I feel confident and comfortable when speaking in public, and have the skills and training to tutor anyone who wants to improve his or her public speaking abilities.
