I structure my lessons according to the student's personal needs and learning style. I always approach each lesson with positivity, patience and enthusiasm. Each lesson will have well-communicated learning objectives, time at the end to reflect on the aforementioned and any questions and concerns. I try to give positive feedback throughout to keep the student motivated. Of course, there is always room for improvement. Guidance on how to improve will usually come in the form of homework, if the student should require any, or a recap/test at the beginning of the following lesson.
