The electric motor may, or may not, allow you to control the speed by controlling the volts supplied. Some motors allow this, some do not. You will have to investigate the nature of your electric motor to determine this. Then if the motor does allow this, can you supply different voltages?

If not, then could you use gears?

If he still wants good torque at half-speed, he would need to use PWM on his 12V supply, no?
