We do classes of 8 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 4:1 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.
Students will learn about different types of speeches - from argumentative, to informative, to impromptu!
Especially in public speaking, students have to learn that mistakes are OK, as long as they keep on going and give it their best shot!
Our curriculum is developed so learning happens through interactive and fun activities. For some students, that may mean games and activities that allow them to practice public speaking while having a blast. For others, that means group discussions on debate strategy and practice. Whatever a student’s level or interest, we are here to tailor our activities to their needs.

Our instructors are some of the warmest, kindest people you’ll ever meet. We are all here because we love the challenge of helping every student find their unique voice.
