The Speech Preparation Lab offers aid to undergraduate and graduate students and faculty across the university to help improve upon individual and group presentations for courses at LR and beyond. The Speech Lab can help you develop topics, locate sources, refine arguments, polish structure, thoughts and gain confidence in delivery.
Speech lab tutors are here to help you throughout your preparation process and can assist you with:
Helping to understand your speaking assignment/purpose
Getting started with your speaking assignment
Developing and organizing your ideas
Polishing the style of your piece
Designing visual aids
Rehearsing your presentation
The Speech Lab is offering both in-person tutoring sessions (located in the Lohr Learning Commons, Rudisill Library Room 226) and virtual tutoring sessions. To ensure safe distancing in person, please make an appointment.
