    I used to have a job where I had to speak in front of big crowds. It is normal to be a little nervous. #1 know your material- don't make a speech that has to be said exactly like it is written, or when you stumble, you will get flustered. Instead write each topic section on an index card, and the main points about it. The sentences will come.
    Try to practice a little in front of friends.
    If you will have a friend in the audience- and there is to be a question section afterwards, have him or her have a question you know you can answer- it will make you feel better when some come in that you may not know the answer for.
    If all else fails, picture your instructors in their underwear. Good Luck.

    I feel the same way as you about presentations. I am fine until I get up there and then my voice starts shaking. I know it's stupid because all my classmates are my friends and we spend almost everyday together. Anyway, I had to give a presentation today about homeopathy and decided to use microsoft powerpoint. What a God send! It made me look organized and I could just read everything from there. I got a 100% on it! Hopefully you can get your hands on it. I borrowed it from a friend but it really is worth the money!

    You can also try taperecording yourself to see if your speeking clearly, too fast or slow. If you have a camcorder available, why not have a friend tape you? This way you can see your performance, areas needing correction--- you won't feel as self conscious in front of a class.
