Teaching College Students
So I am on my second year of teaching classes by myself at a college club. Last year, I think I got lucky and got an easily excitable group. This year, I feel the new students think of me more as a math professor. I get serious looks and can't quite get the class energy up. I know the group can be reached as our dojo cho sometimes needs me to start a class (due to work obligations) and comes in at the 30 minute mark. For the next 1.5 hours, the energy really picks up.
Any thoughts on how to get young students more motivated?
