Communication Center

Tutoring in Public Speaking

In response to the current pandemic, the Communication Center at Creighton University is tutoring students virtually through real-time Zoom meetings. To make an appointment go to BlueTutor.Creighton.edu and follow instructions. Make sure to hit save. A confirmation of your Zoom meeting information will be sent to your Creighton email so verify you have the correct time and day planned for your meeting. When it is time to meet, please turn your camera and sound on to fully participate in tutoring sessions. 

Our trained Communication Center Tutors directly assist students in the organization and delivery of public presentations. Our mission is to help students feel more confident and prepared to speak in front of others.

Any undergraduate student can make an appointment in the Communication Center. In the past, students have worked with Communication Center Tutors to brainstorm topics, organize and build outlines, find sources, determine source citations, create visual aids, establish gestures and facial expressions, develop tone, practice, and record presentations for Module 9 in COM 101. All tutors are trained to work with students while following the assignment guidelines established by course instructors.

Dr. Laura Gill is the Director of the Communication Center. If you have any questions about the center, please contact Dr. Gill.

All sessions last 25-30 minutes and students may schedule multiple sessions. It is recommended to book an appointment at least 5 days in advance of your presentation in your course. Also, be sure to have access to the speech assignment description, rubric, and any other materials you may need during the session (including laptop, outline, sources, note cards, etc). 

We look forward to working with you to create, orate, and master the art of public speaking!
