"I honestly thought that I improved more in 5 hours of tutoring with DebateDrills than I had at all the debate camps I had been to in previous summers (combined)."

"My son Jackson grew tremendously as a debater because of the ongoing support from DebateDrills. They provided him with opportunities for real time learning and support he had not had before. I highly recommend DebateDrills to parents looking to have their children improve their debating skills and success. "

"If there’s any aspect of debate that you think you can improve at personally, working with DebateDrills is the key to do so. The advantages of their services is that they expose you to a new environment and way of thinking about debate, teaching you how the game works and putting you a step above the competition."
