Dee's Teaching Style & Approach
How do you present material to students?
Materials for the classes I teach are presented in a variety of formats to help meet the three primary learning styles including auditory, visual, and kinesthetic.
Presentations of prepared materials are short but impactful, visual aids reinforce the concepts learned during the presentations, and movement is the foundation of the teacher training program.
How do you interact and work with students?
I take the classes seriously but also try to keep things light enough that students are comfortable asking any questions.
I am open and interactive and am available before and after classes.
What kind of classroom dynamic do you promote?
The classroom dynamic I promote is interactive, creative and inspirational, and is challenging enough that students become more confident and gain a deeper understanding of the art and science of yoga.
