Coaching Philosophy

“My specialty is quality arguments. That means arguments that are logically sound but also make sense to a judge. An argument that forsakes either one of these tenants is a short sighted argument that doesn’t work long term.

Arguments have to be completely logically sound or you will get them picked apart against other quality debaters (exactly when you need them to stand up). And it doesn’t matter if your argument is technically sound if the judge doesn’t buy it. I believe the core of debate is the argument and I can help you improve your argumentation.”
