Course Overview

This course is suitable for students in Year 2 who are both new to public speaking, or already have some public speaking experience.

Set over eight sessions across four days, rather than teaching abstract theory (which becomes more important as students develop, but is difficult for students of this age), this program helps young students come out of their shell and form positive speaking habits.

Utilising activity based, experiential learning, students will practice and develop basic skills, such asmaintaining eye contact, projecting their voices, eliminating ‘um’s’ and other filler words, putting clear ideas together and thinking on their feet. These skills will stand them in good stead as progress in their school careers and in life.

We place a strong emphasis on creating a supportive and nurturing learning environment and strive to ensure each student’s introduction to presenting is a positive and enjoyable experience.

As with all our online programs, class sizes are kept small (a maximum of 8) so that each student can be provided with maximum support and attention, including plenty of individualised feedback from our experienced coaches.

We genuinely believe that whilst our online programs look and feel a little different, they are just as effective in helping students develop their speaking abilities.

Unlike most providers, we run all our online programs live in small classes – nothing is pre-recorded, and everything happens in real time. This means that coaches are able to adapt their teaching style to the class that they actually have, leading to the best possible learning outcomes for students.

Students are also given just as many opportunities to practice in front of an audience – whilst not physically present, students can still see all their peers’ faces on the computer screen, providing them with an audience that feels (and is) very real.  This means that students are still able to apply the theory they learn, develop their confidence, and crucially receive indvidualised feedback in real time.

If you’re still not sure, check out our video on online programs or get in touch to learn more!

All of our online intensive programs run for eight sessions over four days, with each session being 1.5 hours long, and a good half an hour break between the two sessions.

So, for example, if the program was scheduled for 9:30am to 1:00pm each day, the first session that day would be from 9:30am to 11:00am, with a half an hour break before the second session between 11:30am and 1:00pm.

Students won’t be starting at the screen all day either – they will get a short break in the middle of each session, and will be encouraged to prepare their practice speeches (at least one every session) on paper, as they would in a physical classroom setting.

Our Presentation Skills Tigers Online is a mixed level program.

Whilst this program assumes no particular knowledge – meaning students are welcome to join with little (or even no) public speaking experience – it is designed to cater towards experienced students as well, and provide them with the development that they need.

Keeping this in mind, the program is also appropriate for students who have already completed our Presentation Skills Tabby Cats or Presentation Skills Tigers physical holiday programs.  The Tigers Online course goes through a range of different skills, and uses a various different activities, meaning that students are able (and encouraged) to do this program, even if they’ve already completed our physical programs.

Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss what’s best for your child!

After completing the Presentation Skills Tigers Online program, students should:

  • have participated in a number of activities (that feel like games) in a nurturing online environment, which help break down the stigma that public speaking is something to be feared;
  • understand the basic elements of a speech, including the three M’s and simple persuasive speech structure; and
  • have been given multiple opportunities to present to their class in each and every 1.5 hour session.

Connecting with Audiences

The first day is designed to help students get to know one another, and feel comfortable in the online classroom setting.  Amongst various speaking activities, students will be exposed to the concept of an audience, and come to understand that speeches are about finding a connection between their interests and their audience.

 

Developing Speech Ideas

As students progress, they will spend the second day working on forming their own opinions, and turning those opinions into speeches.  They will have multiple opportunities to share and justify those opinions to their online class – all the while having fun with numerous speaking activities.

 

Forming Persuasive Speeches

On the third and fourth day, students will start crafting speeches – starting with their speech bodies, before moving onto introductions and conclusions.  Each week will have a different focus, with the idea that students are able to build their speeches over time.

 

Final Presentations

On the fourth day, students will finalise and give their final presentations to the class, and parents are invited to sit in and watch. This is a great opportunity for students to present to a fuller audience, which not only helps them develop their confidence, but also represents an opportunity to showcase what they’ve learned.

Our classes vary in size every workshop depending on how many bookings we receive – however, the maximum size of our Tigers Online class is around eight students with one coach.

If there aren’t any spots left, it’s usually because we’ve hit capacity – please get in touch with us and we’ll see what we can do about either opening an extra class, fitting your child into the existing class, or putting you on a waitlist in case any students pull out!

By the end of each program, students will have:

  • typed feedback, prepared individually for them by their coach, which goes through what they’ve improved on, and what still needs some work;
  • a digital certificate recognising their achievements;
  • a digital course booklet (that can be printed), which covers everything they’ve learned over the course of the program;
  • the speech that they prepared for their final presentations; and
  • hopefully a more positive perspective on public speaking!
Course Reviews

My son enjoyed the 2 day program. I could see significant improvement on both days. He was very excited about the learnings and enthusiastically explained all that he learnt.

The report was detailed and summarised really well. Overall very happy and I highly recommend this program.

It is an excellent program. I will be interested to book my daughter again in the future.

My daughter has learned a lot and was able to tell me about speech structures and key points about presenting in front of audience.
