Hello!

I'm a private debate coach looking for some bright, wonderful students to coach. I have a very wide range of experience in debate and speech both. I have coached over 50 students who have been very fruitful and successful in their debate endeavors. I love coaching and watching my students grow in their abilities to excel in speech and debate. I debated all my years in high school and made it to state many times in many different types of debate and I was one round away from being flown to Alabama to compete in nationals. I am available to teach in person and over skype, I have a very flexible schedule. If you are interested, please send me a message and we can discuss schedules, pay, and types of debate. Thank you very much! :)

After only one month under her teaching I was unbelievably good at debating!
It hardly costed me anything and now all of my debate friends are extremely impressed with my skills! For all of you inexperienced debaters out there, this girl is a must!

At only 10 hours an hour she's basically teaching you for free!

Just call 188-677-9176!

After one month of this program, I went from a size 22 to a size 12 for only $19.95!

I have less students to teach this year, and I'd like more. If you aren't interested in working with me, that's fine. But commenting things of this nature are unproductive and borderline desperate. I won't bother you on your posts, so please refrain from bothering mine. I want to help more students become successful and trying to insult someone who is looking to help others in good spirit is a new type of low. Reserve my topic for those who want to skype with me, please.

I think you took those comments a little too seriously :P

You've probably come to the wrong place. This is an informal debate site. The ethics and methodology of debating are maintained through competition and social status rather than strict rules. It's pretty anarchic. I can't really name any regular members that have much experience in formal debate.

There are a lot...I did, so has blackvoid, raisor, royalpaladin, bluesteel (even though he hasn't been around in a while :( ), Mestari, Zaradi (he and I actually met at a tournament) and many others. But you're right that we're probably in the minority

You're welcome to stay and debate here (if you do, try and stick with what interests you), but I'm afraid the only real rewards are experience.

Don't take it personally QV. This site isn't really the best place to advertise this type of thing (ironic as that may be) and your posts do verge on ad spamming.

I think some members may have thought these post were some type of scam, though I think it's apparent now that you are sincere.

Yeah, there are a good number of legit debaters (having done organized debate) here, though they are certainly in the minority as most are very casual.

If you think I came to the wrong place, okay.

I'm not going to be deleting my posts or altering my offers so you're being redundant. There's this awesome new thing, it's called scrolling past a post if you don't agree with it.

It's crazy.

Thank you, Airmax. ^.^
I don't qualify for financial aid so I have to pay my own way.
I really don't want this to be looked at as a scam, which is why I'm offering to speak over the phone or skype or anything else. I really loved my students and I miss teaching so much.

I think you should stick around. Teach some of these newbs how to debate. ;)

As much as I agree, some members find it necessary to say what's on their mind and attempt to be funny regardless. Just ignore it. Better yet, in a civil manner call them a jerk and debate them on why that's the case.

It's crazy.

It's the internet, for better or worse.

Haha, I know exactly what you mean. There are a lot of kids on this website.

Good luck. I hope you are able to find a way to earn money for college and continue teaching. Put some ads in local papers and advertise at local schools. I think it's understandable that you decided to advertise here, but I don't think it's going to amount to much I'm sorry to say.

I formally apologize to you, Queen Victoria, for my urges to troll and for your ability to make yourself an easy victim.

*Bows*

But really, you shouldn't take me seriously nor does many people on DDO when I act like this, so don't take too seriously. :P

Probably not, but I hoped it was worth a shot. I never imagined I'd get bullied off my own post. I'll advertise in local papers and schools. ^.^ That's a great idea. I've been trying to advertise locally, but I haven't had too much luck. I don't live in a large city, so no one is really interested. I might advertise in Dallas though.

I wish you the best, and hope you have luck with that.

I really don't think anyone meant to bully you. They were really just trying to make innocent jokes and I'm sure they'd be quick to apologize (as Crypto has) if they thought you felt like you were being bullied. We can be pretty casual here and that can mean a misunderstanding like this happens pretty easily, but I assure you no one meant to hurt you in any way and it certainly wasn't personal.

That sounds like quite the sincere apology, thanks. Wow.

He's being facetious; calm down. We take friendly jabs at each other all the time. It's not something to get offended over, and I don't think he intended for you to. I'd say that we're probably a lot better than most forums.

I'm very sensitive about trying to put myself out there to help others and have this happen. Definitely not used to it.

It's context related. Saying that you make yourself look like an easy victim is very rude face-to-face, but on a forum it's a light-hearted joke (especially given that your post seemed very out of place). If you stick around and read the forums you'll get a sense of how people behave here.
