Hi everyone, I wanted to know how you guys structure your first lesson with a new student? I have been doing this for a while now:- Ask about issue briefly before lesson- Introduce myself and ask questions from student and parent, give learning style questionnaire, give assessment test and then check and give feedback, teach a question student got wrong , feedback to parent and student, schedule next lesson. I normally give 15 minutes extra to the 1 hour initial lesson . However, once a very fussy parent of a student said that they don't want their child's time to be wasted in lesson with assessment. I believe an assessment during lesson shows student's true potential and that they have had no help but I do feel akward sitting there with the parent waiting for their child to finish. Do you guys give an assessment before lesson or during first lesson? Also, how do you structure your first lesson? Thanks a bunch in advance! Meeting a new student this Saturday.
