Description

Nothing happens without rapport, it is one of the most powerful skills a teacher can have in their toolbox. By the time the kids sit down in your class, they have already made a judgement about you based on: your clothes, how you stand, how you speak to them, your body language, whether or not you smile and the tone of your voice.

Let’s be honest, you don’t have all year to do this so this course is specifically designed with that in mind.

Want to have them eating out of the palm of your hand? Build rapport.
