Pro Tip Tuesday: Giving a Great Lesson

Posted on: Dec 05 2017 | Blog


Keep It Simple

Often instructors get bogged down in technical jargon and long-winded explanations, which ultimately confuse the student. To be the most effective instructor follow these simple rules, and start giving great lessons.

Rule #1 Clear and Concise: Make sure that you are talking slowly enough for your student to hear you. Call the student by their name five times during the lesson (this is proven to help retention).

Rule #2 Avoid Clichés: Phrases such as “over the top”, “chicken wing” or “getting stuck” often confuse the student.

Rule #3 Graphics: Use a maximum of two graphics per image/video. More than two clutters the image/video and distracts from the main areas of focus.
