Online appointments

Classes have moved online, and the Speaking Center moved with them. We will keep offering online appointments for the rest of the semester!


The Speaking Center can help you prepare for calls, video chats, and all the other oddities of discussion from a distance. Work out your virutal presentation with us before you try it live! We also offer conversation practice, interview prep, and help with any other speaking tasks you face.

The Speaking Center offers two kinds of online appointments:

Video chat (called "online" in our system): Meet with your tutor via live voice and video! No extra software is necessary—just return to your appointment in our schedule and click start when you're ready to begin. Most of our tutors offer live video chat.

Document exchange (called "e-tutoring" in our system): Send your tutor documents or other files, and we'll send them back with comments! Great for low-bandwidth Internet connections, as well as speaking projects that involve writing, PowerPoint, or other elements you prepare in advance. Tutors Lu Ann Dvorak and Bryanne Estes offer document exchange tutoring.
