Support for Your Speech Courses and Class Presentations

The Speech Center at Pasadena City College offers tutoring for all Speech courses offered at PCC*. We also offer help to any student who needs help on a presentation. Practicing a presentation on your own can only help so much. Practicing in front of one of the tutors will better prepare you for when you actually have to present your speech!
