Public speaking can make us very nervous. It can make us feel like our hearts are pounding and butterflies are doing summersaults in our stomachs.
But let me start by saying this: Public speaking is our friend! It is our friend because:
- It allows us to share our thoughts, ideas, opinions, and perspectives.
- It is a way for us to share what we do, make, produce, or have learned.
- It can potentially (without bragging of course!) show others what we are really good at!
- It gives us an opportunity to help other people with what we know.
Are you still with me? Do you agree that, after all, this dreaded, annoying thing called "public speaking," which you may want to run miles away from, is actually quite beneficial for your child and their audience?
High five! We are on the same page here!

Here is Jyoti's story about transforming from a quiet girl to a confident keynote speaker...
I never used to be a public speaker. In fact, I was the shyest child in my class growing up. I never raised my hand in class, and the only time I ever spoke was when my teacher asked me to answer a question -- a parent's worst nightmare.
However, something changed drastically in the fourth grade. I moved to a new city and school. I was in a completely new environment with new classmates, new teachers, and no friends. Already being the quietest kid in class at my previous school, I got even quieter and went more and more into my shell.
This all changed one day when the principal of my new school came to my class and asked a few students to stand up and read dialogs as an audition for the school play. The principal selected a few students at random. I was one of the students she asked to come up and audition. I was in shock! I froze ...I thought to myself - I don’t speak, I am shy! She called my name again, and I hesitantly got up from my seat and was given the dialogs. As you can imagine, I was very nervous. I was trembling inside but trying my best to not show that fear on the outside. I had never spoken in front of an entire classroom full of kids, a teacher, and the principal.
I opened my mouth and, as I was about to read the dialogue in a monotonous tone, I remember telling myself that the least I could do now is not embarrass myself and at least speak loudly! And that is exactly what I did. I spoke loudly and clearly. I did not know what public speaking was. I did not know anything about expression, or intonation, or pitching, or voice control, or gestures. All I did was speak loudly and clearly. Surprisingly, I ended up getting the third most important role in the play that year.
And that, my friends, was the beginning of me speaking in front of people! In fifth grade, I got picked for the lead role in the school play and, over the following years in middle school, high school, college, and as a professional, I have done many speeches, talks, debates, etc.
The reason why I am sharing my story with you is that if a very shy, quiet, hesitant, not-so-confident child like me could transform into a confident public speaker, YOUR child can too! And so can anybody who wants to do it. Public speaking is a skill that can easily be developed. You don’t need to be born with it; in fact, many good public speakers are not born with it. They develop it!
I sincerely thank my principal for forcing me to speak in front of my class against my own will. Had it not been for her encouraging me to go outside my comfort zone, who knows if I would still be that shy, not-so-confident person today.
Sometimes we need that push to get out of our comfort zone. It is only when we are challenged that we learn new things. I invite your child, and lovingly challenge your child, to join me on this journey to become the best public speaker they can be!
Take the course from anywhere: home, work, or even while traveling!
Unlike traditional online courses, in this course you get to practice in front of an audience & get instant pointers and feedback, just like a classroom setting.
Watch lesson videos as many time as you like, as opposed to a classroom where once the teacher is gone, the lesson is gone!
Unlike other online courses, receive customized training with the instructor.
Save commute time & money to the traditional local class (Usually 30mins-60mins roundtrip door to door).
Family & parents have the opportunity to know what exactly is being taught and reinforce it (most of our kids don't share what happened in a class! LOL!)
"My daughter was not confident, but she just got selected into a magnet school - thanks to the communication skills that she learned in Jyoti's course. We are so thankful to her for teaching my shy and quiet daughter the perfect techniques skills for interpersonal and group conversations." - Bryee
“My daughter enjoyed Jyoti Singhvi’s public speaking class. She gained a lot of insights on how to organize her thoughts on paper and present in front of a large audience. It gave her an opportunity to express herself in more ways than one. The course also had a tremendous positive impact on her presentational skills. Jyoti’s commitment towards her students is commendable and it reflects in their development.” - Nina T.
“I have been telling my friends that they need to enroll in Jyoti Singhvi’s public speaking class – because it works!! I am enrolling my son for the next session too! My son who is very quiet and does not want to respond or answer at school or at home has really started opening up and I see a change after just a few classes. He also hated writing and would cry for hours to write any school papers. But this course is teaching them how to write a speech. They are not only getting public speaking and communication skills but they’re also getting writing skills, which will also be used in school. There is a lot of personal attention and interest from the instructor and they make sure no matter what the level of your child, he or she is progressing. I am so glad I found this course for my son!” - Dee
“Both my son and my daughter really enjoyed this course on public speaking. Jyoti Singhvi is very passionate about making the kids better and also detail-oriented. The course materials, videos, and exercises along with the practice sessions and Questions and answers with Jyoti creates an excellent meticulous system for kids to get better with public speaking. We also get amazing feedback which is both positive and "growth-worthy" as Jyoti terms it. My children have enjoyed this class. The approach is very methodical and well thought. Jyoti is very accomplished and committed so I would recommend this class to all children.” - Sonia
“I highly recommend this public speaking course. The course has a structured curriculum and imparts a sense of confidence in the kids while speaking. The course is not only fun and interactive, but each child gets individual attention and the instructor provides feedback for improvements. The course gives them ample time to prepare and practice through group training exercises. My daughter is advanced and has a lot of experience in public speaking, but she has been challenged and has learned a lot of new skills that have helped her become a better public speaker.” - Sandy
