Public Speaking

I took classes in public speaking in high school and college. I was also on the high school debate team and placed second in the district. I also routinely speak at service clubs and public events. I find the organization of a feature story for a newspaper and preparing a speech to be very similar.

Paper to edit

I absolutely loved Bob! He is an outstanding editor and writer, Bob helped me with a letter that needed some adjusting so that it would make a whole lot of sense to the reader. Bob got the job done for me and made my letter flow beautifully! Thanks Bob!

Very nice tutor!

We read a text from Stephen Crane's "The Open Boat". Bob taught me SAT vocabulary words and an assortment of homophones. He gave me many reading tips. Bob is a nice tutor, and I intend to keep classes.
