Public Speaking is the #1 fear for most adults. Our goal is to face that fear head-on and turn it into a fun adventure!

              We'll unravel the secrets of different speech types, like informative, demonstrative, and persuasive. We'll equip you with the superpower to identify them with ease. We'll also unveil the 3 things every speech needs to captivate an audience.

     Homework for the day? Choose a topic for your speech and dive into research mode.

It's is all about unlocking your conversational prowess. We'll explore the magic of weaving words together in a way that feels like a genuine conversation. We'll also unveil the secrets of a great speaker, sharing tips on pacing, posture, volume, and much more. Get ready to unleash your inner performer!

       For homework, it's time to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and start crafting your own awe-inspiring speech.

It's is where the real excitement begins. We'll put your newly acquired skills to the test with impromptu speeches—thrilling moments where you'll curate and deliver a speech on the spot, with no time to prepare! Brace yourself for the unexpected and embrace the thrill of speaking on your feet. We'll also introduce you to the thrilling world of beginner debate skills. 

For homework you will put the finishing touches on your speech and practice it. 

Lights, camera, action! You will take the floor and present your speech to the class in a super supportive environment. You might even realize that you enjoyed the butterfly feeling as much as the round of applause at the end!

Get ready to unleash your inner orator and embark on an adventure that will forever transform your speaking abilities. The stage awaits, and you're the star of the show!

Learning Goals

Being comfortable speaking in public is an invaluable asset for any future career. My hope is that by giving learners practice in a small group environment at a young age, they will gain the confidence and beginning skills that they can use all throughout life!
