Presenting Rav Moshe's Teshuvah on Learning During Hazaras HaShaz

Yesterday, I presented at school on the topic of Rav Moshe's teshuvah on learning from a book during the prayer leader's repetition. This year at YCT, students get to speak on Rav Moshe Feinstein's teshuvos throughout a given week directly following מנהה (afternoon prayer service). Started last year by some students to present a prayer-related דבר הלכה (piece of halakhah) a couple of times a week, it has now been instituted that one student does so three times a week and specifically on Rav Moshe's teshuvos. This week is my week. The source sheet I prepared is available here. Below follows the video from yesterday's presentation:
There are, I recognize, some things that I did well and some that I did not (and upon which I need to work):
Things upon which I need to work are my mumbling, the looking down, the talking to the paper, and processing what I am about to say while talking. As far as good things, my hand motions were definitely an asset, when I did make eye contact with the audience, when I was speaking smoothly, and my finish with the conclusion.
There are two more parts to this series and I have what upon which to work.
