How to maximize your coaching experience

TIP #1: SEEK CONSTANT FEEDBACK

One of the biggest reasons why a student on Rype may discontinue his or her membership is due to lack of communication.

Students often will not be vocal about what exactly they’re looking for, so as the coach it’s up to you to seek constant feedback about the content of the lessons, how they have been progressing so far, and how you can improve the experience.

Every 2 weeks is a good time frame for you to ask the student at the end of the lesson what they’d like to see in upcoming lessons.

TIP #2: PROVIDE ENCOURAGEMENT AND POSITIVE SUPPORT

Many students often quit due to lack of motivation. They lose purpose and inspiration in continuing their learning journey, so it’s incredibly important to be supportive and encouraging.

You can do this by:
-sending positive remarks about how much progress the student has been making.
-pushing them to complete their homework assignments and motivating them during the lesson
-giving them additional reading or assignments if they’re looking for more materials before the next lesson

TIP #3: BE PREPARED FOR EACH LESSON

Being ready for each lesson is the best advice we can give you if you want your students to stay with you.

Whether it's preparing articles, videos, or songs that you can make the lesson more interesting and intriguing for students, having something prepared ahead of time will show students that you're going above and beyond for them.

In addition to the material, you want to make sure your audio (or video if required) is at the best quality because a bad audio can ruin the experience for students, no matter how prepared you are.

TIP #4: BE PUNCTUAL

One of the ways to guarantee that a student won't work with you in the future is to be late (or worse: cancel your lessons) without notifying them.

Things happen, but you want to make sure you're letting your students know well ahead of time if you're unable to make the lessons.
