MANAGE YOUR TIME WISELY
Whether you have chosen to invest in a course you attend in person or whether you have opted for online home study package make sure you have allowed enough preparations and study time of the materials supplied
This of course will vary from person to person but by a guide allow minimum 16 hours study. Of course your learning never stops but initially before the exam allow this time minimum to prepare for your course.
Map out how many hours you can commit to your studies each week, and write on a calendar or journal what you actually plan to accomplish. Be realistic. And remember that you’re more likely to meet your goals if you write them down. Do not feel defeated if you are not able to study for hours on end. Whether you dedicate one to two hours, or 30 minutes daily to your studies, make the most of that time.
STUDYING THE CONTENT
Allow time to read and practice the moves for yourself
Then allow additional time in focusing on the words that you will be using whilst teaching
This for many this is the hardest part of transitioning from student to instructor status using the correct terminology including the muscle names correctly
USE YOUR RESOURCES
We all learn differently. Whether you are a visual, auditory or tactile/kinaesthetic learner, there is something for everyone. Recognize your personal learning style and use it to your advantage. This we cover on the courses too. Use the social media YouTube and visual aids to learn to break down the moves and combinations paying particular attending to and feet body alignments and head positions in all the moves you seen – begin to break down the technicalities of the moves too
