Writing Center | Tutoring Services tutors, who have also been trained in tutoring students in oral communication tasks, also offer assistance with speeches or oral presentations and multimodal (PowerPoint, Prezi, Loom, etc.) presentations. In addition to practicing your speeches and presentations, these tutors will also give you feedback on how to make them stronger. To make an appointment, click on the button above, and select "Speeches," Oral Presentations," or "Multimodal Presentations" from the "limit to" drop-down menu. 

These tutors follow the composing process to give you advice on your work. They go from the invention stage (analyzing the assignment, brainstorming ideas, outlining, finding resources) to the drafting stage (laying out the major points and creating cues for the oral performance) to the performance stage (rehearsing). Throughout this process tutors will follow best practices for delivery: speaking from notes, using extraverbal communication strategies, connecting with your audience, and enhancing projection, articulation, pace, and appropriate diction.

Please bring a printed copy of your speech/ presentation for your tutor to peruse while you present. We also request that you bring a copy of the prompt.
