Think on your mind. Take a look to yourself. Are you fully prepared for your great lesson?.. Remember eyes want their part, so choose a serious & professional dress to put on. Before to start teaching use 10 minutes to review the lesson. All must be perfect. how stuff work in this case?.. I use THIS PEN to give off more impact... Remember aesthetic aspect is part of this world now, so little things make the difference.

Do not forget your class is composed by engaged people. You come later in their heads, exactly in the last position after the main things & problems. I recommend you to joke with them while you are illustrating your lesson. Have fun with them will put their mind in a good condition to learn.

Take care of listless students. First, you must point to intrigue them about what you are saying. You are the MASTER and they are important as the others. Do not make the big mistake to leave them aside. I strongly suggest you to take note about them, just write it down on your precious agenda.

Do not limit your class to listen at yourself. Speaking only is boring. Allow them to partecipate in the lesson by making some relevant questions to some student. (change him at every demand to implicate them all)

When you teach on childs try to do it as a game. You can use a lot of examples to help you while you are explaining to them. Put fairy tale in your comparison. (remember they have 8-9 or 10 years)

Release easy homeworks to force your beginners to study. They will do them or not, but it permits them to be better focused about your topics. Try to give tasks pertaining fantasy for young scholars and professional-oriented exercises to 'worker' students. I have found a brilliant idea. I take some free software here (like a tutor) to give myself an hand about homeworks. You can see it like another example to work...

Congratulate brave students (that have made their jobs above) to give them satisfaction. They will be very happy to receive compliments from you, it's a sort of stimulus, you know. HEEYY, wait !... Your brave students will be happy to help others too. Convince them to use BULLETTIN BOARDS to share their positive experiences.

Sometimes it's better to do some test for testing class rate. Sure you will make a good teaching job, but it will be very difficult that course learning is equal for every single individual. By doing this one you will adjust your fire. (you know they have different brains!)
