Speech and Language Center

The Speech and Language Center offer Online Tutoring

The Speech and Language Center provides support for public speaking and presentations. In the Speech and Language Center, students are able to work with tutors on upcoming presentations and speeches. The tutor can assist with everything from creating an outline for a speech, articulation, diction, and body language to creating effective PowerPoint presentations or even strategies for public speaking anxiety.

The Speech and Language Center has shifted its focus to online presentations. Our goal is to guide students to become better public speakers and presenters.
