Reviewed by Sophie L. on 4/10/2019
The teacher was a good speaker, and I especially appreciated the enthusiasm. However, I found that the material was far too basic and not eye-opening enough. For example, one key learning was "slow down," as in speak slower because speaking quickly indicates nervousness. That's something most people know. It would have been interesting, though, to find out how to slow things down when you're really nervous, how to switch from a 5 minute presentation to a 1 minute summary when the audience runs out of time, etc. The teacher was not prepared to respond to questions. He rambled on when asked a question, even changing his mind halfway through and providing a very basic, obvious response such as "you can look up what other people have done" or "go with your gut." Of course if I don't know what to do I'm going to go with my gut... Overall I appreciated the experience but was disappointed as I didn't leave feeling I learned anything.
