Danelle H.
I taught the elements of effective speech, and the techniques used to improve effective speech, in several military schools for over nine years.

I also taught techniques on how to improve when writing speeches, preparing presentations, and developing effective lesson plans, to those qualifying as Instructor’s for various technical and specialist programs.

Martha Z.
I have an extensive background in speech performance and education. My experience with teaching speech began 22 years ago. My method includes breathing to find your center, and projecting from that core. You will learn to control your breath, projection, and lexicon. Further, I concentrate on muscular control to help you increase your pronunciation and understanding. Diction training to improve overall communication. The muscular work will help eliminate things like slurs and lisps. The breathing will help control things like stutters. Lastly, I will help understand and improve your temporal resonance auditory processing so that you can more effectively hear yourself when communicating. The holistic view includes automatic self esteem increases with specific work on taking control of your own eloquence. You will find energy and focus increases as well as a strong sense of control. Let's chat!
Kristin F.
My field of endeavor requires me to be an effective speech communicator. As the pastor of a local church I am tasked weekly to take the words penned by men two-thousand years ago and recast them in contemporary language in a way that is faithful to the original message. The message I present is also required to be relevant to lives of my hearers in spite of originating in antiquity through a different culture and in different languages.While a college student, I participated in the forensic team - which engaged in speech competitions. I competed in impromtu, extemporaneous, and after dinner speech events. At both the undergraduate and graduate levels of my educatin I was required to complete classes in speech communication - including instruction on the hearers responsibility for speech communication.My instruction in speech communication focuses on clear organization in the speech and the authenticity of the speaker. Hearers do not trust, and therefore are much less likely to listen, to a person who tries to be someone they are not. Additionally, hearers tend to tune out if they think the speech os going nowhere - organization is a must.

I also am qualified in the literacy and language curriculum that utilizes a sequence of teaching steps to teach any child to read.

Cyndi N.
I've had over twenty-five years' experience as a theater professional and lawyer and now serve various theaters in the Washington, D.C. area as a dialect coach. I'm a playwright as well, and the sum of my training and experience has enabled me to help students and coaching clients hone the communication skills. My coaching practice has consisted of adult, professional non-natives who have come from Egypt, Estonia, Lithuania, Ukraine, India, Mexico, China, Korea, Columbia and Trinidad. They are anxious to acquire Standard American speech or at least modify their accents if it appears to be keeping them from attaining their professional goals. (In theater, the task is often to help an actor acquire a dialect or work on reducing or eliminating a regional accent that can get in the way of establishing a character. I also coach actors individually on accent remediation because a regional accent can prevent an otherwise talented actor from being cast.) I also received formal speech training as an undergraduate at Tulane, as a theater major and then under the legendary Lyda Virginia Parker at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theater, a professional acting school in New York. Over the years, as a lawyer and playwright, I've also learned how to structure speeches, the various forms that they come in---motivational,persuasive,informative,etc. and how to write an effective presentation using PowerPoint, transparencies and available technologies.
