    How to listen better to your students and avoid an accident at work compensation claim

    As a teacher it is important that as much as you try to get through to your students and teach them everything that you know, that you should also be willing to listen and learn from them as well, in order to ensure that you have the best possible connection and are more likely to be able to get through to them on less interesting subjects to them. You should also listen to your students to ensure their safety on a number of issues, so that you can step in and help with bad situations before they get worse.

    • Give time for listening. Most of the time you will have to be teaching your students and will probably have a schedule to get through. In this case you won’t have time to listen to the thoughts and problems of every student. You should put some time aside at the end of the class when you can listen to what your students think.
    • Leave your door open. Both physically and metaphorically, your students should know that it is always OK to come to you with thoughts and problems. This will make it easier for them to approach you with their issues in the first place.
    • Plan to come up with solutions. If a student approaches you with a thought or problem you should make it your business to help them with a solution. Even if you can’t come up with something perfect, the idea that you are sitting down and thinking their issue through will help them to trust you better.
    • Ask questions. Try to get as much as you can from the student so that you know what you are dealing with, rather than only listening to part of the problem and trying to come up with a solution from this.
