The personal learning network for educators

One of the most noticeable things about my 1 to 1's is the differences in style and content. When I do group teaching I use, for want of a better phrase, my "house style". But when it comes to 1 to 1 the lessons are often very different in style. Some are what you might call traditional lessons with materials and controlled practice, but with some customers the lessons are little more than a conversation with me giving hints and tips as we go along. This is particularly prevalent with senior managers.

"I just want to talk" say the customer and despite the occasional effort to bring more structure into the lessons it always regresses back to a sort of corrected conversation. Frankly, I get a bad conscience about these lessons, but the customers seem to love them. Indeed their satisfaction seems inversely proportional to the amount of grammar I introduce into the lesson.

Is this a bad thing? I can see improvement and the customer is happy, but the improvement could be much faster with another style.

Have other people experienced this? I'd be interested in any feedback.

Top tips to increase your productivity through your study room

We’re stuck at home with limited access to many public spaces outdoors, including libraries, co-working spaces and educational institutions. These are just some examples of study areas you may utilise when you need a change in scenery to keep yourself engaged whilst you’re studying. Now, we’re being forced within the four walls of our home which means creating a workspace or room has never been more important. The learning environment that students work in can have a major impact on…See More
