The Speech Communication Lab provides CCSF students with academic support in researching, writing and delivering speeches for an audience. The Lab offers one-on-one tutoring, workshops and study groups.

Students may receive assistance with the following:

  • selecting the right topic for the right speech
  • crafting a clear thesis statement that fits the purpose of the speech
  • organizing and developing a speech outline
  • writing the most effective introductions and conclusions
  • creating and using visual aids
  • researching a speech topic
  • practicing all aspects of delivery from eye contact to the use of note cards

  • Bring assignment sheets and outline instructions provided by your instructor
  • Appointments are not taken; all students are encouraged to drop in
  • Drop-ins will be seen on a first-come, first-serve basis
  • Tutors do not proofread outlines for grammar; they address issues related to the speech writing process
  • You will be given verification of your attendance for your instructor
