MAKING ONESELF HEARD! (For Public Speaking & Presentations)

Explore Public Speaking through...

Intonation and Melody

When training for a presentation, decide which words and passages deserve extra attention and increase the tone to emphasize these points. If something sounds exaggerated or false, your audience can turn against you.

Volume

A speech is not ordinary conversation, and a presenter can’t convey passion and enthusiasm if the words are delivered softly.

Clarity

Don’t forget to articulate every word, to ensure clarity on your part and understanding on the part of the audience.

Emphasis

Even in the same sentence, emphasizing different words can change the focus of a message. Changing emphasis can alter meaning and/or implication.

Pauses

when pauses are placed in strategic spots in a speech, they can make the difference between a good and an excellent presentation. There are several purposes for which pauses can be used: to give listeners a chance to absorb something that’s just been said; to generate expectations about something that’s going to be said...

Pacing & Tone

If you often get negative feedback about the faster or slower delivery of your speeches, practice delivering a speech sometimes faster and sometimes slower, so you can arrive at a natural pace.

Jay’s an amazing teacher, he truly helped me with my university’s application and I really enjoyed his lesson! Looking forward to the next one
Public speaking classes with Jay were top-notch! Even though we held the classes online, he has the rare ability to make you feel at ease in a second and I felt fully engaged. Jay covered a variety of subjects regarding tone, speed, volume, pronunciation, etc. with different exercises. I've noticed continuous progress throughout the classes and I have now a better control of my public speaking skills, which will be of great use both in personal and professional contexts. I highly recommend!
A highly recommended teacher. He immediately understood my needs and wishes, and in such a short time I've already learned so much.
I needed a professional, impactful CV to start my applications for internships. Jay discussed, arranged and finalised the content with me online first, and then he also designed a fantastic editable Word Document, that I will be able to update in the future. And he was very quick too, my CV was ready in two days after I got in touch with him! I'll definitely keep him in mind for future needs.
Jay est un prof très didactique, il explique très bien et est très agréable, on ne sent pas le cours passer.

As an Academic English Specialist, I provide Immersion Courses, American English adaptation/translation services, career-building tools and documents and have a niche for pronunciation correction and TOEIC Preparation. I teach general ESL (English as a Second Language), business and industry-specific English and all-purpose English too! This is also a communicative English class for developing speech. Here we will explore, vocabulary with nuances in meanings, synonyms, idioms, proverbs, some phrasal verb and prepositional verbs and all-around social English. The possibilities are endless for focusing on Public Speaking, Intonation and Voice Projection as well. This may be stimulated by interesting audios, short readers or videos. If there are topics you have in mind, we can additionally explore and incorporate this into your lessons. If you need to start speaking English, this class is for you. **NOTE: This class can also be offered and adjusted to accommodate multiple teenagers, adults or professionals as a group session, to make it more economical for you. It is advised that groups not exceed more than 5 persons per session. Charges apply to distances teacher must travel; especially, if out of standard office hours or on bank holidays!!
In this class we may choose from the following towards literacy exploration and development: -current news articles -reports -biographies -reviews/critic reviews -books/ magazines -or literature of your choice My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson with limitless opportunities to examine various styles of writing which may be practical for a wide array of needs. Included is grammar correction, punctuation correction, proper time tense usage, proofreading, interpretation and text adaptation. Bear in mind that a document of 1-2 pages could require 2 or even 3-sessions depending on the complexity, context and objective of what you may want your end result to consist of.
In this workshop, we will aggregate necessary content from you, formulate and organize your ideas and thoughts with precision, structure and format two drafts of your resume/C.V. and finalize a document that best represents you professionally. Note: Variations of the document (for other contextual usage) can also be created with advance notice, discussion and negotiation. Tools for examination: -curriculum vitaes (resumes) -cover letters (presentation letters), -formal letter writing, -creative writing, -in-kind donation letters, -and related documents! (*This includes punctuation, salutation and apostrophe usage in writing.) Note (specifically for WEBSITES): Translations are also possible; however, thorough discussion about price adjustments depends on word count, whether adaptation/translation/proofreading is needed. Project deadline of completion must also be calculated and agreed upon prior to making your final reservation for such a service.

Mainly for adult and professional learners, this session is dedicated to identifying your needs as a first-time learner of English. It includes an English Assessment exam to help determine your level and assist in diagnosing your current weaknesses with grammar/speaking. What better way to understand your linguistics needs than through the ears of a Native English speaker and trainer?! Find out your weaknesses and strengths so that you can build a plan for yourself. If you are an INDIVIDUAL for private courses, we may meet at a café or bakery. If you are a BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL or GROUP for Career English courses, we may meet at: -your office within central city limits.
Learn different recording techniques & tips towards quality voice and audio recordings, and develop in-studio efficiency in a relaxed and fun environment. We can instruct you on how to dub and layer vocals, ad-lib and produce quality sound that is specific to voice type and vocal register. Additionally, this class can teach you how to quickly develop a fluid communicatory dynamic with new sound engineers or visa versa, encourage productive and precise communication from sound engineer to recording artist. Other insights could include consultation for Future Sound Engineers and Recording Artists such as: where to make their sounds fuller, rounder, where to take breaths and/or change rhythms or shorten syllables where needed; how to take different creative songwriting or beat-building approaches to music. This course is only given in English. This is for individuals that are striving towards voice quality and enhanced composition in the English language. This is not a voice class nor a language class. It is a tutorial class for individuals who already have talents or aspirations and professionals seeking or in-training!

Accent Reduction for non-native English speakers (USA or UK English)
Welcome! I specialize in aiding non-native English speaking professionals with accent reduction. I can help you learn either the American or British English accent. I'm also able to aid a client in public speaking skills if desired. I am a native American English speaker (born and raised in the USA), and I am a professional private voice instructor. I have several years experience teaching languages and specialize in English diction. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Education and therefore have the ability to cater my lessons exactly to each individual student's needs. I specialize in developing a keen, discerning ear, and connecting that identification of sound to slight physical alterations that can make a big difference for you in your daily professional and social life. I can help you communicate more articulately and efficiently. First I help you achieve the correct recognition and production of the speech sounds necessary for English. I will then help you use correct intonation patterns, stress, and rhythm in conversational speech. Accent Reduction will help you speak more clearly, freely, and directly. Feel free to send me a quick message, and we can set up a lesson. I look forward to meeting you!

Clases conversacionales virtuales de español para todos los niveles y edades
Hola, Mi nombre es Santiago y estoy ofreciendo clases de español virtuales individuales y personalizadas para mejorar tu comunicación oral y escrita. El enfoque principal de mis clases se centra en desarrollar una comunicación fluida y estructurada del idioma español, ya sea para preparar exámenes internacionales, para poder comunicarnos adecuadamente en el campo profesional o para reforzar y mantener el conocimiento previo de este idioma. Soy un hablante nativo de español de Uruguay, me gradué de la Florida Gulf Coast University en los E.E. U.U. y estudié artes de la comunicación durante año y medio en Tailandia. Mientras estudiaba artes de la comunicación, tuve varias clases de comunicación, aprendí técnicas de cómo hablar mejor usando no solo nuestras palabras, sino también nuestro cuerpo para ayudarnos a hablar de forma más natural, tranquila y sin ponernos nerviosos si nos quedamos en blanco u olvidamos lo que queríamos decir. Durante mi carrera en los Estados Unidos, escribía constantemente ensayos para mis clases, además de tener que presentar proyectos frente a mis maestros y compañeros de clase. Al mismo tiempo, estaba trabajando en la universidad y después de graduarme trabajé durante un año, principalmente teniendo largas conversaciones telefónicas con personas de todo el país. En los últimos años adquirí una experiencia invaluable viviendo en el extranjero comunicándome usando mi segundo idioma. Ahora, ayudo a otros que buscan hacer lo mismo. Ayudo a personas de todo el mundo con su español para que puedan cumplir sus objetivos. Podría ser estudiar en el extranjero, vivir en un país de habla hispana, mejorar su comunicación en el campo profesional o seguir practicando para no perder su nivel previamente adquirido. Si lo que buscas es mejorar tu conocimiento del idioma español, te ayudaré. Mi metodología es simple. Cada persona es diferente y adapto el contenido de mis clases a las necesidades e intereses de mis alumnos. Todos aprendemos de diferentes maneras y en diferentes momentos, es por eso que diseño mis clases individualmente ofreciendo una lección de prueba sin compromiso y así ver la mejor manera de lograr sus objetivos.
