How to Teach

Tips for Teaching Children

  • Try and engage all the learning senses: visual, auditory, reading/writing, and kinesthetic.
  • Try and incorporate a game into the learning.
  • Don’t waste time or talk too much. Kids have limited attention spans and will zone out.
  • Songs/dance are great ways to learn things and keep children involved.
  • Incorporate a treat/dessert into your learning.
  • Praise desirable behaviors heavily, do not criticize at all.

 

Tips for Becoming World Class

  • Systematically study the topic, don’t just practice.
  • Receive constant feedback.
  • Be willing to fail again and again and again.
  • Be willing to be uncomfortable and in pain.
  • Have a coach or teacher to guide you.
