Sandra's Teaching Style & Approach

How do you present materials to your students?

I like to present materials in a step-by-step process.

When introducing a new technique, I present some completed examples and then demonstrate each step, giving instruction and guidance as needed.

How do you work with and interact with your students?

I try to create a relaxed and non-intimidating classroom atmosphere.

Students are encouraged to use their unique experiences and backgrounds to create their own style.

What kind of classroom dynamic do you promote?

I encourage students to ask questions and feel free to make suggestions.

As the instructor, I feel it is my role to introduce an impart new techniques and skills.

My students are free to implement and create, based on what they have learned.
