About our consultants

At the Speaking Studio, our peer consultants are fellow learners, collaborators, and colleagues, with a little more experience. Our goal is always to think about how we can collaborate with our visitors. Instead of telling our peers exactly what to do or what to say, we focus on finding solutions together.

A Speaking Studio consultant is:

  • Collaborative
  • Open
  • Honest
  • Supportive
  • Respectful
  • Accurate

  • Respect the rights and confidentiality of the student and the consultation
