Speakers Lab

A peer-to-peer tutoring organization, the Speakers Lab assists students with the creation and delivery of both individual and group speeches or presentations. In order to provide a comfortable and relaxed yet effective environment, our trained tutors will walk students through various speaking competencies in which the student excelled, as well as where the student struggled. This is done in order to leverage strengths and to improve upon weaknesses.
