  • determining the purpose of the speech and working with a clear focus
  • researching the topic and organizing the content of a speech
  • constructing well-reasoned persuasive speeches
  • writing clear and interesting speeches to inform
  • improving oral skills, such as expanding the range of vocal choices
  • developing appropriate nonverbal communication techniques
  • controlling nervousness and developing confidence as a public speaker

About our O.C. Lab Tutors:

Andrea Asacker is a senior at Champlain College in the Communication program. She can be seen around campus hula hooping, juggling, and of course doing her homework. She is always happy to help another student reach their potential in public speaking and presenting. Along with believing that public speaking is a valuable life skill, Andrea believes that everyone has something important to say, and has the potential to be truly heard.

Sasha Darovskikh is a sophomore at Champlain College, majoring in Communication. He enjoys writing as well as many outdoor activities such as mountain biking, skiing and sailing. In addition, Sasha is an owner at our very own The Lodge and is currently creating his first prototype mountain bike, which he hopes to unveil sometime this year.

Leslie Duclos is a junior Communication major with a minor in Foreign Languages. This is her first year as a tutor for the Oral Communication Lab. Leslie is actively involved in Champlain Theater and with Champlain's improv comedy troupe, Los Dormant Volcanos.
