Don’t forget the basics!
Tom believes in positivity and variation of approach to build relationships:
“I believe we should actively listen to our students. Vary the delivery methods that we use when teaching and tailor our materials to the specific audience. To spice up our sessions we can make use of pictures, videos, audio tracks and case studies where possible. We should change the pitch of our voices and remain encouraging and positive. When we deliver, I think we should move around the classroom and use the students names, ask them questions directly, and as a group”
