We are very lucky to have our two boys, Ray and Charlie, in Dr. Gerrie’s public speaking and leadership class. They have made great improvements in language and performing skills and learnt a lot of positive values. My wife and I are proud that they have enthusiasm for publicly speaking and are becoming two good speakers.
I have a master’s degrees from the University of Oxford. I have high educational standards for the next generation. Many attempts were made but the results were not obvious.
The two boys were shy and refused to talk too much in English even they had certain accumulation in vocabulary. Speaking in public was far too challenging for them. However, having attended Dr. Gerrie’s training for a few months, the changes have been encouraging.
Both of them have become more confident, responsible, kind and open. We really appreciate Dr. Gerrie for not only teaching but also father-love to my boys.

There are some other public speaking classes in town. Why is Dr. Gerrie’s class outstanding and special? Different from memorizing someone else’s article and performing routinely with certain gestures, Dr. Gerrie encourages his students to show something inside their hearts. The speech is of the student’s own.
The students do not have to speak like a programmed robot from the same factory. They have their own styles. This is important because your speech is after all something you really want to express and share to others.
Traditional Asian families pay more attention on academics. However, the future will need more elites with comprehensive abilities. It is good for a student to have high exam marks but she/he will need more to achieve excellence: leadership, team works, good social skills, good manners, enthusiasm and etc.
I highly recommend Dr. Gerrie’s public speaking and leadership class. It is definitely an outstanding place to learn these important skills.
