What is the PPC?
The BYU-Idaho Presentations Practice Center is designed to help students and faculty develop, practice, and polish their presentations for any project, in any discipline-from class presentations to rehearsals for a performance.
Why should you come?
Preparation is the key to success with any speech or presentation. The Presentation Practice Center can help students and faculty with brainstorming ideas, outlining a presentation, slide design, and, of course, practice! Practice helps build confidence and polish your speech before the actual presenting day! Our center has many trained tutors that excel in presenting who want to help you achieve your best! The center offers a very calm atmosphere where you can feel at ease to express your ideas and practice your presentation. The results of practice and of taking advantage of free, qualified tutoring can allow students and faculty to produce stunning and strong presentations.Never Used the PPC? Learn how.

The Presentation Practice Center is found in McKay Room 164. We also do online tutoring appointments, so you don't always have to come to the center.
How does it work? On-Campus Appointments
To sign up for an appointment, follow the instructions on the right. After you have signed up for a thirty-minute appointment, you will meet your tutor in McKay 164 at the designated time. The tutor will log you into the system. After being logged in, you will go to a reserved classroom to have your one-on-one or group appointment with the tutor.
There are two options you can do for an online appointment.
- To sign up for an appointment, follow the instructions on the right. You will then be sent an e-mail with a link to a virtual room, called a Zoom Room. Click on that link in order to enter your appointment at your scheduled time.
- The student can email a link to a video (posted on vimeo, youtube, or zoom) to firstname.lastname@example.org. A tutor will watch the video and email their feedback back to the student within 24-48 hours after the video is received.
- Please note that while this is a good option a face to face online appointment will be more beneficial to you as you interact with a tutor.
Online Tutoring is becoming a very popular feature for the online classes and we look forward to working with you.
