In part 1 of this series, we addressed the mental attitude necessary to help new students. In part 2 we gave you ideas about how to help new students before class. Lights, camera, action—it’s now time for class to begin. What steps can you take now to best help new students?
In this article, I want to help you:
What you say to the whole class is very important to the new student. Be sure that message stays consistent. You don’t want to say “You can do your own thing” to the new student privately and then say “OK, let’s hammer” first thing on the mic. Just be consistent.
Establishing a trusting relationship will get new students to come to your class. Once they begin seeing results they will be your students for a long time to come.
