Coaching: speaking online or in public, speaking voice work, stress management.
Managing stress, controlling your voice when you have to speak in public (in a conference, webcast or webinar), offering clear and well-structured information, these can represent famous challenges, especially today when it is necessary do this online. To achieve your goals, I offer you a holistic approach to public speaking because, to convey a message, form and content are intimately linked. After a few sessions, you will feel more confident, more convincing. Your interlocutors will be more attentive to the information you want to transmit. Your voice will stay clear longer. Through stress management, you will feel a great boost of energy and concentration. Regarding the form, we will work in particular, the posture, the breathing, the modulation of the voice, the volume, the height, the intonation, and also the eye contact, the gestures, the pauses, in short, what one calls the "non-verbal". We will also see the elements that take precedence during a presentation or an exchange on the Internet. And, if it helps, we'll see the different ways to handle your stress. We will establish your profile to choose the tools that suit you best. Finally, if you have short deadlines (or not), you can put yourself in situation and, for example, prepare an interview, a presentation, a conference or a meeting. We will make simulations that will allow you to be in full possession of your means and the content of your intervention.

MAKING ONESELF HEARD! (For Public Speaking & Presentations)
Explore Public Speaking through... Intonation and Melody When training for a presentation, decide which words and passages deserve extra attention and increase the tone to emphasize these points. If something sounds exaggerated or false, your audience can turn against you. Volume A speech is not ordinary conversation, and a presenter can’t convey passion and enthusiasm if the words are delivered softly. Clarity Don’t forget to articulate every word, to ensure clarity on your part and understanding on the part of the audience. Emphasis Even in the same sentence, emphasizing different words can change the focus of a message. Changing emphasis can alter meaning and/or implication. Pauses when pauses are placed in strategic spots in a speech, they can make the difference between a good and an excellent presentation. There are several purposes for which pauses can be used: to give listeners a chance to absorb something that’s just been said; to generate expectations about something that’s going to be said... Pacing & Tone If you often get negative feedback about the faster or slower delivery of your speeches, practice delivering a speech sometimes faster and sometimes slower, so you can arrive at a natural pace.

Sarah
English class by Zoom with certified Native US teacher & actress / English class with native teacher (United States) graduated / actress /
Hi, I am Sarah, Language Teacher, Professional Actress and Acting Coach, native of the United States with over 10 years of experience giving online classes for all levels and for all ages (child, teen, student, adult, executive, professional actor, etc.). Please read the ad to the end before responding. I mainly give private lessons through Zoom / Facetime etc. Face-to-face course not possible at the moment. For the available slots, please understand that the list is not always up-to-date. I can help you prepare for a TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge etc exam, a job interview in English, learn English or improve it quickly and efficiently. School support in English for children / teenagers. For executives etc. I can help you improve your presentations in English. For the children we use songs, drawings, videos and I always try to make the lesson interesting for them. For actors, speaking English fluently and with less emphasis is important for an international career and we work in English using different scenes, roles, accents. For singers, less accent in English is also very important when considering an international career. The courses are both practical and theoretical (grammar, pronunciation, writing texts, improvising and thinking in English, etc.) thanks to my career as an actress and also marketing / the business world (master's degree in Marketing Communication & Languages and the experience of international companies). I use improvisation techniques, communication etc, and in my lessons, each lesson is personalized to the student and his needs. Taking lessons through Zoom / Facetime is a fantastic way to learn, flexible and it's very intensive, even more than a face to face lesson, and especially now during Covid-19, it's the best way to study. See you soon!

Political Communication, Public Speaking and Presentation
The course module is adapted to the student. The summary will be communicated during the first lesson. I teach you to speak and/or write with an approach to the sciences of political communication, international relations, social and human sciences while convincing the person(s) in front of you with several negotiation techniques. ▪️ The techniques used will improve your level of confidence in your public presentations and storytelling. ▪️ Political communication is about the creation and exchange of ideas and opinions between citizens, public officials, political institutions, and related entities, such as the media. It includes discourse throughout the political process in local, state, national, and international political systems, as well as how political information can be exploited for political ends or to achieve political goals. People with a background in political communication may work in policy advice, foreign service, market research, public relations, journalism, and digital media, community organizing, lobbying, political campaigning, or other related fields. ▪️ BUT! in order to achieve your goal you must master public speaking which is the process or act of giving a speech in front of a live audience. Public speaking is generally understood to be formal, face to face, speaking from a single person to a group of listeners.

TOEFL TOEIC IETLS SAT ESP preparation for international level English tests
FULL ENGLISH (ESP/ESL - EFL/TOEFL TOEIC IELTS etc.) Dear Mr/Mrs, I am sending you this short presentation as a proposal for an extracurricular complement which aims to support your pupils/students or your company staff in a specific follow-up concerning their subjects and general subjects of specialization and their field of work (business , trade-logistics, assistantship, science, technology, engineering, mathematics, personal and professional development, media etc.) or even a particular and individual or grouped incubation in the field of professional English. In addition, this request also concerns that of a teaching position in the Senegalese education system (ESL/EFL) and the American curriculum (K-12). Knowing that English is the language par excellence of the international baccalaureate, higher education and international professional interactions, it becomes essential in local and international professional transactions. I therefore come to propose this modern and effective approach. The documents that detail the tailor-made program about the courses and activities that target these different specialties will be available to you once the learning has begun. and follow-up with periodic reports and evaluations will be provided to you. I am a researcher, bilingual instructor, teacher of the American program program and curriculum designer, educational advisor for parents and preparers for English level tests etc. Regards,
