i get anxious regularly on small issues including slight stuttering in my speech when i am curious to say something. For this reason I hesitate to speak in my class in fear of stuttering there...what should I do to kill this anxiety?

The Stuttering Foundation of America, states that “overcoming stuttering is often more a matter of losing fear of stuttering than a matter of trying harder.” If you begin to stutter while speaking, then, as much as possible, keep your voice and manner calm. Relax the muscles of your jaw. Use short sentences. Minimize the use of interjections, such as ‘um’ and ‘ah.’”
