This sounds like the use-case for a compressor.  Although i dont record
speech, i always run song vocals through a compressor to bring down the
peaks and raise the quiet parts to make it more consistent.  You mentioned
being a "beginner" so im not sure how much detail you want, or need, for
using a compressor plugin.  The caveat for using compression is that it can
also raise the noise floor ( that background hiss you hear when listening
closely ).

from there.
