"DebateDrills provided a platform for Jason to interact and learn with top debaters in the country, forming a strong bond with each other. Jason felt fully supported at tournaments. Words can not express my gratitude and appreciation to DebateDrills for teaching Jason all these years - I have no hesitations recommending DebateDrills to anyone who desires top notch debate training."

Jenny Chan | DebateDrills Parent

"Drilling with coaches and practicing with the other members made for a great and effective orientation to the wide and scary world of circuit debate."

Mark McDermott | DebateDrills Student

"Jackson grew tremendously as a debater because of the ongoing support from Debate Drills. I highly recommend DebateDrills to parents looking to have their children improve their debating skills and success."

Kati Hanna | DebateDrills Parent

"We found that DebateDrills was invaluable for Asher. Asher went to a high school that did not have a robust debate program to prep and debate at the levels of his peers from more established schools. DebateDrills helped Asher build a sense of team and community that otherwise wouldn’t have existed."

Meet Our Instructors

Paras Kumar

Paras is the most successful private tutor in the history of competitive debate, having personally delivered thousands of hours of 1:1 tutoring to hundreds of students of all ages, backgrounds and debate events across the world. Before he turned 25, he became the first coach in the history of Lincoln-Douglas (LD) Debate to coach three consecutive students (2017-2019) to the Championship Debate at the annual National Championships: the Tournament of Champions (TOC).

Cameron Baghai

Cameron received a J.D. from Yale Law School and a B.A. in Philosophy from UCLA. After graduating law school, he clerked on the Ninth Circuit Appellate Court and worked at the law firm O’Melveny & Myers. As an attorney, he represented clients in high-stakes, high-profile civil litigation. During his schooling, Cameron had won numerous tournaments and speaker awards in both high school LD debate and college NPDA debate. In college, he coached powerhouse teams, winners of national championships, and debate luminaries. Cameron’s passion for debate never died, and so he eventually left law to return to coaching. At DebateDrills, Cameron leverages his extensive experience in law—the world of applied debate—to teach students advanced persuasion, critical thinking, and analysis.
