The better teachers do all the asking..
When I'm working with beginners in my low impact class I like to ask questions to see if they are thinking....like offering a shoulder for attack, I ask which hand they would attack with and why and that leads to a more (to them) interesting discussion and exercises on safe space. Instead of telling them to end up facing me when doing an attack or concluding a technique, I ask them where they (or their belt knot) is facing and then ask them who over there is posing a problem, and that leads to them self-correcting their body position relative to their training partner.
