Coaches and mentors for students

The importance of a mentor and a coach

Before we understand how important they may be, we talk first about the difference between a mentor and a coach. So, a mentor is a person who has already been where you want to be. So, he can be just one, two or three steps ahead of you. He doesn’t need to be an expert already, although this can be a plus but more complicated to find. If it is already several steps ahead. This will be enough because he can help you in the steps he goes through and make it feedback that can help you.

He can give you a map, the steps to follow to reach that point. It could be very useful because you gain time on research and the mistake he did before you could do. Now the coach, who is a person that doesn’t tell you what to do, but through questions makes you realise what you need to do in your life or for your goal.

Positive vs negative thoughts

The importance of positive thoughts

To discuss positive thoughts, we can start by talking about the different types of thoughts that exist. For example, you have neutral thoughts, that is the type of thoughts that help you to keep running, to keep alive. You have multiple examples for that, like, when you go to the supermarket, you will think about what to buy to eat, to drink. Then there are unnecessary thoughts, you must imagine what kind of thoughts he has, for example when you say to yourself, I’m going to go to Netflix, or watch TV.

You’re going to go on your social networks, it’s typically procrastination. You know you can do useful things, but you would rather do unnecessary things. Then there are the negative energies. These thoughts will not only waste your energy, but also make you weaker, and waste your time. You know that little voice that you say, that you can’t do anything. Or when other people criticize you, this little voice will lower you even more and remind you in the next situation. You will lose your self-esteem, which will probably stop you in your goals.

spanish learning course

Being a Spanish teacher

Work with teenagers in their mother tongue is an exciting experience. It is not just about transmitting the required knowledge, but about managing to develop both oral and written skills. Students have to improve their expressive skills in Spanish to be able to develop their intellectual capacity. There is no need to impose a language, it is about expanding the linguistic resources of each student. Teaching should cover the diversity of structures, linguistic plans, and communicative situations.

In my experience, the greatest difficulties are the great diversity existing among the students and the majority lack of motivation. Many times what appears is an inconsistency between what the teacher shows and the students learn. This leads to a vicious circle where the students lose all interest because they feel they learn nothing. Given this situation, the challenge is to obtain the mechanisms so that each course acquires the required contents.

That means 62% think that they stuck in their comfort zone. Comfort zone is the most secure place for people because they are in control and that makes them feel safe.

Maybe there are other ways to go; shorter one or with a great view but you don’t know because you always prefer to go in the same way. So, a comfort zone is a beautiful place but nothing ever grows there. Ask a question to yourself, are you really happy or just comfortable?
