6:1 Student Teacher Ratio

We do classes of 10-12 students with 2 instructors per class. We've found that, especially for online coaching, having a small class size is absolutely critical for making sure that every student gets to speak - even our shy or more reluctant students! The 6:1 student teacher ratio also means that our instructors really get to know each child's strengths and weaknesses and provide targeted coaching throughout the week.

Private Coaching And Guidance

Throughout each week, students will get edits and advice as they research and write out their speeches. In addition, they'll have a chance to do one-on-one conferences with instructors to work on their tournament preparation. And of course, during our classes, students will have a chance to do speaking activities and practice debates so they can get immediate feedback!
