Here are the rules that I made for myself to make sure that my teaching was most effective. If a child is frustrated, bored or upset he cannot possibly learn optimally. If a child gets frustrated and angry to the point of a meltdown, then he can’t learn, period. Doing everything I can to make sure that my child will have many successes and be a co-operative and happy learner is my top priority during a teaching session.
