    Whenever I write essays, I end up putting in similar phrases. When I review the essay I always remove them. "Let me explain further" or words to that effect are redundant. You are speaking. You are explaining. You don't need to tell people you are explaining. They know it already because they are listening to you.

    It is just a form of verbal diarrhoea. Rather than say these words. Say nothing. A terrifying trick of public speaking is to leave long pauses. It allows the audience to digest what you have just said.

    Good luck!
