Help Your Child Embrace the Power of Their Voice

Sharpening communication abilities helps young people succeed in a world that demands confidence, articulation, and the ability to communicate ideas clearly. By building superior speaking skills, students will excel in school, defend their beliefs and values, and become leaders in their schools and communities.

Our public speaking workshop for elementary, middle school, and high school students will:

  • Teach students to quickly engage their audience and hold their interest
  • Write and present EYE-POPPING and CAPTIVATING speeches
  • Show students how to best use technology and visuals effectively in presentations — there is such a thing as too much!
  • Develop valuable social skills — eye contact, poise, articulation, and confidence
  • Train students how to present and support their arguments in debates

Public speaking improves research and organization abilities — crucial skills for high school and college success.

Elementary Public Speaking Classes in Boston, MA

Your child could be asked to present a short speech in front of their class at an age as young as first grade. Will your young learner feel ready to conquer this nerve-wracking experience?

Even adults have trouble giving presentations to a group, so it wouldn’t be uncommon for your elementary schooler to have stage fright on the day of their presentation. You can help them be ready for small speeches in school by signing them up for a public speaking workshop for elementary students.

In our workshop, we will keep things light and engaging, so students can feel comfortable standing in front of their peers while speaking. Our certified instructors will cover the basics of public speaking and how body language, eye contact, voice modulation, and facial expressions can change the meaning of a student’s speech. At the end of the program, each student will have an opportunity to prepare and present a speech on a topic with which they are already familiar. Our public speaking workshop for elementary students is designed to be a solid foundation on which students can build in middle and high school.

Middle School Public Speaking Classes in Boston, MA

Students in middle school are beginning to discover where their true passions lie and are developing their unique personalities. It is in this discovery that they also learn what interests and engages others. Our public speaking workshop for middle school students builds upon this self-awareness and social engagement by teaching students how to capture and retain listeners’ attention with captivating openers, anecdotes, and facts. Over the course of the program, each middle school student will gain the confidence they need to deliver effective speeches that incorporate the issues they are passionate about while catering to the concerns of their peers to persuade them to believe one way or another.

High School Public Speaking Classes in Boston, MA

Practice makes perfect, which is why our public speaking classes for high schoolers are centered on actually presenting topics rather than simply learning about techniques students can use while delivering a speech. In this way, we will lessen your child’s speaker anxiety so that they can effectively present their ideas orally — whether they are in the classroom, at a job interview, or engaging with a college admissions counselor.

Our public speaking workshop for high school students teaches young scholars the fine art of persuasive speaking and debate. The focus will be on helping them present a topic with minimal or no notes so that they can be confident in their ability to communicate eloquently while also thinking critically on their feet. We will also instruct them on the proper way to research topics, outline speeches, and use presentation aids. At the end of each speech, they will receive instructor and peer feedback that they can use to design their next speech better.
