Wink Re: Adult weaker student

Hi Sweet Cherry!

Im kinda new at teaching but have experience when it comes to people. Sounds like the "confidence" of your student sounds more like the problem than a learning or coping disability.
You need to find out what the problem is that is causing her to fall behind ( yes you need to play psychologist).
The positive reinforcement will help in the confidence building but you need to discern when to implement it.
I also agree do not single her out, that will isolate and cause her to perform badly again.
Find out where she wants to work abroad and find a tourist video or books to motivate her to reach out, the books and video will also aid her in her learning.
Hope i was of help to you.

Bless you!
