What makes a good teacher?

“A good teacher is someone who shows me what I can achieve and then provides me with the tools to achieve those things. She is patient, has time for questions and does not have an ego that gets in the way of my learning. She shows me what I can do, not what she can do. I leave the classroom feeling empowered and inspired. There is no such thing as a ‘silly question’ and I have a hunger to learn more each time I visit.”

People learn most effectively when they are in a relaxed learning environment and are kept engaged. Learning new things should be fun!
