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.
...
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.
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.
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!!
English Language Homeschooling (for students aged 13-15 years old, face-to-face only) is the education of school-aged children at home or a variety of places other than school. Many homeschool families prefer less formal, more personalized and individualized methods of learning that are not always found in schools. It has a vast range of advantages for learners of English as a second or third language. Distant English Language Homeschooling (for students aged 15-17 years old, with a basic understanding of English) which generally refers to the arrangement where the student is educated online, rather than being educated face-to-face, due to movement, health or time limitations. **NOTE: For ethical and developmental purposes, Distant English Language Homeschooling is NOT offered to teenagers under 15 years old that do not already live in an Anglophone environment.** Points for improvement focus on: -Time tense meanings and usage -Vocabulary nuances -Assistance with school-administered homework & academic documents/assignments -Developing speaking skills for socializing/presentations/traveling -Test-taking

Communication Training (Professional / Personal) & Public Speaking
Whether your goal is personal or professional, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, relying on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations, reflecting the involvement of the speaker in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? How to regain self-confidence and control the management of his emotions? Knowing how to speak in public is now a necessity for the company and in the company. From a personal point of view, this is a vector for better relationships and optimal messages. On the phone, in a meeting, in front of a client or a banker (…), your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages, creating a match between the message received and the message sent. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented and then put into practice for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering trust ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups. Controlled, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation • to work on his ease, leadership, his NLP, his charisma, his creativity and to go towards a certain personal development, through a set of scenarios * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitch, intention, flow) Completed by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management ...), role plays, improvisations and simulations will be set up. With the key words: pronunciation, rhetoric, verbal and non-verbal communication, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee, structured speech (…). The goal is not only to focus on verbal communication but also on nonverbal communication, so as to make the control of his body, his voice (...), a real and lasting strength. Depending on the interaction between the trainer - coach and the one who consults, there is no single way to operate: each type of session depends on the needs and difficulties of each. In all cases, it is very often a question, while adapting to your own needs and after having precisely diagnosed your desired objective and the blockages encountered, to combine the theory (the bases of the studied concept, for example NLP / information asymmetry / the "how to say no" / the tools of non-verbal communication or the application of kinaesthesia) and its application (through exercises and direct applications). For example, are discussed: - the fundamentals of public speaking: breathing, gaze and body language - diction and elocution: rhythm and range of your voice - management of your emotions and your emotional overflow (example: stress) - work on the body, to amplify your charisma and ensure consistency between your message and your body ... with the aim of: * Enhance your presentation and arouse interest by focusing on your strengths, your qualities ... your personality * Match the content and form of your message * Improve your charisma, your self-confidence and the benefits of your emotional intelligence THE TRAINER: Postgraduate School Training & Ivy league college in the United States, our teacher has specialized and worked for over 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking in renowned public and private international institutions, involved in forums and conferences, and focused on two areas: training and coaching, with the key words pedagogy and careful methodology. PLACES - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (example: notes that can be re-read on the chat). In this context, the videoconference sessions for which you asked me to seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place very optimally and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.
