Help students learn

Learning should be an enjoyable experience. By making each lesson a pleasurable experience for the student, the instructor can maintain a high level of student motivation.

Learning should be clear. Establish the objective of each lesson. Not knowing the objective of the lesson often leads to confusion, disinterest, and uneasiness on the part of the student.

Learning should be ongoing. Inspire your students to be lifelong learners. Show them by example that you are continually learning and improving your own skills.
