During a first lesson, students sometimes shows excessive stress! So what do you do to help your student in such a situation?
As far as I'm concerned, I'm not a super hero:-) I have feelings, I am not a teaching machine! :-)
Sometimes I feel the same stress as all human beings, well I suppose ! Even if this stress disappears in a few seconds, it may be there! I think it's a normal thing!
So, when I feel that a student is stressed, I do not hesitate to share my feelings with him/her, and very quickly, calm sets in!
What about you, dear teachers from all over the world, do you ever get stressed out before or during a lesson ?
How do you manage your students' stress?
