8 thoughts on “Tips for teaching: Planning your sessions (11 mins)

  1. I agree 100% with having a plan and having lesson notes. I have been told in the past that a “good” teacher doesn’t use notes,that it’s “unprofessional”, and that are clients are paying us to know what we’re doing.
    I’m calling BS on all that. For God’s sake, the president of the United States ( all of them!) reads a speech on a TelePrompter that SOMEBODY ELSE WROTE!!!
    I have no shame using notes when I teach.
    So there.

  2. I love the idea of having students doing other exercises during equipment changes. That’s been a frustration of mine as a new teacher! I also like your super-nerdy stickies. Honestly I’m with you: The more planning I have done, the better my clients receive and do the work, therefore they come back happier for their next session.

  3. This is so great! I bought a TUL notebook after you recommended it and I LOVE it! It’s helped me feel more prepared and I date the session so I know the last time I used it (yes, hard to keep track when you’re teaching a lot). I feel present and excited when I am prepared and students absolutely pick up on that energy. Thanks for the great reminder!
