I is for…

I is for…Improvement. This is what is expected of you. Nobody can be best at everything and nobody expects you to be. What your teacher wants is for you to try your hardest and for you to do a little better each time. So how can you make sure you improve?

  • listen carefully when your teacher is explaining.
  • ask questions if you don’t understand.
  • have a go in your independent working time and see how much you can do – you can’t improve if you don’t try.
  • if you get stuck, show your teacher what you have tried so that he or she can see which part you need help with. This is much better than handing in a book with no work at all in.
  • do your homework each week so that you are practising.

It might take a little while, but slowly people will start to see improvement in your work. When this happens it will make you feel proud.

    Sally-Jayne, you hit the nail on the head. Not only is this good advice and insight for younger students, but for anyone in any course of study or profession. There’s always someone else out there who knows more; don’t be afraid to ask for help! And don’t be afraid to push yourself, too.

    Thanks! 🙂

      That’s a good point Mayumi. I wrote this as advice for the youngsters I teach, but you are right – it’s something we should all bear in mind no matter how old we are. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Leave me a comment. I'd love to know what you think.
