The normal student would confidently walk in a relationship coaching class thinking she will learn a lot automatically. That is such a wrong impression as you should concentrate on the things going on around you the moment you enter the classroom. Even if you are too old for school, you must realize that it is always a good thing to learn something new. You can teach that to your students and you will have something to remember it by since you will either get a certificate of completion or a diploma.
Here are some things to keep in mind when you show up for that much anticipated first day of class for a relationship coaching course:
1) Be attentive Always listen to the instructor unless you want him to waste time trying to call your attention when he sees you are not paying attention to what he is saying. If he does that then everyone would get mad at you because it would interrupt his lecture. You should not only look at the instructor but you should show him that you are indeed interested in what he is teaching to the class. It is possible he won’t teach again what he is currently teaching.
2) Take down notes You should never forget a pen and a notebook whenever coming to class so you can take down notes. You must take down notes at the right time though because there are times when the teacher would not want you to do that because he might be discussing something important. You must write legibly though unless you want to be the subject of jokes regarding your penmanship. You might not even understand your own handwriting.
If you are not up to the task of taking down notes then there is always the option of photocopying the notes of someone who has good handwriting. All you have to do is to make sure that person agrees to it because not all of them do. Besides, they spend a lot of time and energy taking down notes only to let someone copy it. It might not sound like a good deal for them but some kind people would agree to it.
3) Review at home The learning does not stop at the classroom as you should also review what you have learned when you get home. If you don’t practice then you might forget everything when a new lesson comes up. You should not only review it when there is an exam. You should also review for it every day of the week.
4) Make friends with the right people You will notice that people with different attitudes will show up in class. Of course, you should not be friends with all of them. Why would you want to become friends with people who have a lot of tattoos and don’t listen to the instructor when the lecture begins?
You should be friends with those who are interested in learning all about relationship coaching.
