Gearing up for your senior thesis defense?
Help is here!
The Speaking Center @ Davidson College offers the services of trained student tutors to support speaking across the curriculum. At any point of the process, from selecting a topic to delivering the speech, the Center can assist you in learning to speak, and speaking to learn.
Located in The Center for Teaching and Learning located in the E.H. Little Library, The Speaking Center includes private rooms, a camera and playback equipment, and resource materials to help students collaborate with tutors. Students wishing to keep copies of their presentations can bring recordable DVDs (available in the Bookstore).
The Speaking Center is open Sunday through Thursday from 8-11 pm during the academic year. Tutorial assistance is available on a first-come, first-served basis, so come early!
