Knowledgeable & Friendly

It has been a delight to work with Phyllis on improving my presentation skills. She is very detailed when sharing feedback and advice. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing help with public speaking.

Yessika, 2 lessons with Phyllis

Phyllis made me feel accomplished in my Capstone Project. Phyllis’s tone of voice and patience enlightened me and helped me finish my paper and submit it with no fear.

She was open-minded from the beginning, which helped me ask her question and not be afraid of her reaction. Her self-assertiveness and positive feedback encouraged me to accomplish the last steps of my Capstone Project.

Phyllis helped me with a speech that I just gave that was so authentically me. She had a lot of helpful ideas, suggestions and feedback. Also, she helped me realize what I was doing well which improved my confidence. I highly recommend her if you need help with a speech or just want to improve your public speaking skills.

Wonderful energy and great advice

Phyllis was a fantastic coach for my professional presentation. She was able to help me fine tune some presentation skills as well as add some much needed structure to the material. The presentation was a huge success with many compliments received from my peers. I would recommend her without reservation and will definitely use her services again!
