Individual Coaching

YES, I am still offering individual coaching during the pandemic!

Meetings are held via Zoom, and appointments are available weekdays 9am-5pm. Typical meetings are 30 min to 1 hour long.

What to Expect

I've helped students and postdocs prepare for a wide variety of oral presentations, including seminars, qualifying exams, conference presentations, and job talks. Wherever you're at in the process of preparing your presentation, I can help! Potential topics for discussion include:

  • Organizing content to tell a clear and cohesive story
  • Tailoring technical information for specific audiences
  • Optimizing slides for maximum readability and impact
  • Fine-tuning your delivery to make a strong positive impression
  • ... and anything else you'd like to work on

In preparation for our meeting, I'll ask you what you'd like to focus on. We can cover multiple topics, but it helps to know what your top priority is. And if you can send me your slides in advance, fantastic! (But don't worry if you don't have anything to share -- it's not required.)
