Tutoring in Southgate, Michigan.

03/06/2015
Most kids shudder at the thought of standing in front of the classroom doing a required oral presentation. Here at The Tutoring Center in Southgate,MI, your child would have an opportunity to practice his or her presentation with a tutor before stepping in front of the classroom at school. Here are a few guidelines you can use to help your child in creating a great oral presentation.

Recognizing the Fear

Public speaking is one of the most recognized of fears and getting over that hurdle is difficult for many people, especially kids. Helping your child properly prepare for an oral presentation is the key to making their first experience with public speaking a positive one. 

Gathering Info

First, your child should understand the primary goal or purpose of the presentation. This will help him to organize an outline. The next and most important step is to research the topic in which the presentation will be about. Knowing the subject through and through is the key to a good oral presentation.

Organize

After your child has researched and gathered all the needed information for the presentation, he needs to organize the information and prepare the speech. Have him put facts and note cards in chronological order.

Commit to Memory

After your child has prepared his outline, he then needs to commit the speech to memory. He should read it over several times on his own out loud. Once he feels confident enough, he should practice the oral presentation in front of family members several times so he can get feedback and develop a comfort level. Finally, have him practice in front of someone else like a neighbor. This should all help increase his confidence and comfort level resulting in a better presentation.
