Public Speaking
For Parents!
Private Tutoring available.

Larry has in the recent past taught Public Speaking at St. Hilda's-St. Hugh's School near Columbia University in NYC as part of their after school offerings. More recently Larry works as a
private tutor as well, serving families in Manhattan, Jersey City and Westchester County. Larry will work with your teen or young adult privately by coming to your home or meeting in neutral spaces and work studios in midtown Manhattan.

Get an honest appraisal of your child's or teen's talent. Larry will work with your child or teen in a regular coaching session and review their evaluation with you in a thorough and honest way.

You'll know where you stand on what could be a very important decision in your child's or teen's life--and yours. Larry will work with you to devise an approach specifically tailored to your child's needs.

Hi Larry. Thanks for reaching out to us. Jack knocked it out of the park with his speech! Working with you was great and helped him a lot. Enjoy the summer!
— Parents of a Manhattan middle school student who was giving his graduation speech
We think having you as a neutral adult voice is making a huge difference with Jeremy. He trusts you so much more than we could ever do. And he loves your humor. You are making this important work fun and we can see his growth already. He is going to nail his university interviews, we can tell.
—Parents of an Ivy-league college-bound young man
I understand that you are working on specific college interview questions now. This is great, as this will also help our son to learn more about himself and to help formulate his college personal statement.
—a Mother hoping her international student son will perfect his speaking skill set.
Thank you so much for all your time and efforts in helping our son last week. Based on your astute observation and great coaching, I believe he has made good progress. I sincerely appreciate all your valuable feedback and I hope that he will take all your comments to heart. Would be great if you could drop him some written pointers and words of encouragement, too. He does seem to be a bit more conversant and ready to share his thoughts, too, after your sessions. When I asked him if he’d like to continue with your coaching he said “fine”. The fact that he did not resist with the idea is a huge step; it actually means that he finds your sessions helpful and productive. Thank you.

THE JERSEY CITY CREW

Two summers ago Larry worked with some incredibly bright and remarkable students from
Jersey City, NJ.

The knowledge these future entrepreneurs
held collectively was enough energy to burn a hole in your hard drive!


Their parents, some of whom are pictured left with their kids/young adults, brought to  Larry's attention the need for a private class  to improve their children's public speaking  abilities. The parents knew the value of  getting their children to speak freely and  without fear early so that later in life doing so would be second nature.

Starting with theater games, Larry slowly  introduced to them to how to tell stories, how to engage their bodies to go along with those superior minds and how to organize and give speeches for Larry and their classmates.

Along the way there was some serious fun, but also an introduction to how there is no difference from the way you tell a favorite story to giving a speech that persuades.

Have a group or classroom of your own for  Larry to visit and teach public speaking?  Contact him at info@larrygleason.com

For Parents!

Larry also works parents who wish to have their teen's audition for the various Performing Arts High Schools in the five Boroughs of NYC like LaGuardia, Talent Unlimited, Frank Sinatra, PPAS, etc. Preparation for these auditions needs to take place well in advance of each school's deadline—think months in advance!—if your child wants to have his or her best shot.

Unsure about your child's talent? Get an honest appraisal of your teen's or young adult's talent. Larry will work with your child or teen in a regular coaching session and review their evaluation with you in a thorough and honest way. You'll know where you stand on what could be a very important decision in your child's or teen's life--and yours.
PARENTS OF KIDS ARE RAVING!

"I just wanted to let you know that Atticus had his audition on Wednesday. I was not in the room, but he felt good about how it went. He said that the other kids all seemed to rush through and recite their monologues, rather than really “act.” So, hopefully he will get a call back next month! Thanks so much for working with him on such short notice. And, I will definitely let you know about the callback- we’ll definitely need your coaching again!"

"I am delighted that Rae is happy and she has found a teacher that she feels can help her stretch her limits and prepare for the upcoming auditions. I only wish we had found you first!"

"Larry was fantastic at organizing monologues for entrance into Fiorello Laguardia High School For The Performing Arts. He showed my son how to ace the audition by giving him the tools to rehearse his monologues line by line. Thank u Larry -- we R in!!!"
