How should I start the lesson?

Start by establishing rapport (being friendly) with the student so that they feel comfortable. This may be a new experience for them and they may be a bit nervous or unsure about what they need to do.
Ask the student at the start of the lesson how long they would like the lesson last. Likewise, tell the student if you have limited time so that there are no surprises and the lesson can end smoothly.
Check in with the student to see what they would like to achieve during the lesson, what they’d like to learn, and what they want to take away from the
lesson that would make them happy with their progress.
At the end of the lesson, provide a short recap on what you’ve covered, and what they’ve learnt so that they feel a sense of accomplishment.
