The Speakers Lab
The Butler University Speakers Lab employs highly trained student tutors to give one-on-one help with the creation and delivery of both individual and group speeches or presentations. In 30- or 60-minute sessions, our tutors provide a relaxed yet effective environment to assist students with all parts of the public speaking process which includes: refining the topic, organizing the content, effectively presenting, and developing visuals. Tutors provide constructive feedback at any stage of the process. They are also trained to assist in the preparation of interviews.
Students who are interested in signing-up for a Speakers Lab session must sign-up using our online system at speakerslab.appointy.com.
Please note the following:
- Individuals seeking one-hour sessions must sign-up on the hour rather than on the half-hour intervals (e.g., 2:00 PM, not 2:30 PM).
- Students must book appointments at least 2 hours in advance. The online system will not show available sessions within that 2-hour timeframe; however, the Speakers Lab does accept and encourage walk-in appointments without reservations if a tutor is available.
- Sessions must be cancelled or rescheduled 24 hours in advance or students will be marked as absent if they fail to arrive.
