About Brenda

I've taught public speaking to all ages and kinds of people from adults to high school students. I have an undergraduate degree in Speech and Drama Education and an Interdisciplinary Masters of Arts in English and Education. Since 1998, I've been teaching high school students part time, but before that, I taught critical thinking, writing, and public speaking at some local colleges. I have also worked with professionals to hone their communication skills. Along with speaking, I have also worked with college students visiting from other countries. I helped a woman from Japan gain confidence to contribute in class discussion in English. After working with me, she had the confidence to speak up in class!

But what about you? How can I help you? When we first meet, we will figure out your goals. We then will have you talk about a topic that is simple for you. From this, I will assess where you might need improvement, and we will tailor instruction to best meet your needs. If you are willing to work on improving your presentation skills, you can succeed!
