About the lesson

I graduated from Seton Hall University with a Political Science degree in December 2015. Now, I am a graduate student and debate coach at Cornell University.

Writing tutoring focuses on concise language and sentence variety. Public speaking coaching will vary by experience level.

About Chris

If you're looking to be a competitive speaker, a more confident presenter, or just to conquer a fear of public speaking, I can help. My students come from all over the world with varying goals: American high schoolers seeking help with interscholastic speech and debate, an Italian musician preparing for job interviews, an Indian scientist who needed his academic papers to be presented more accessibly. No matter your goals, I can teach you the technical elements of public speaking and presentation.

I have worked in some capacity as a speech and debate coach for 9 years with over 200 students. I have coached two national finalists, a national semifinalist, and three national quarterfinalists in Public Forum debate. I am a One Diamond coach with the National Speech and Debate Association and I am an assistant coach with Cornell University's speech team.
