What is the best reading strategy?

I currently teach an adult how to read and spell. The problem is that he is not making progress the way I expected; besides, he has a busy schedule. What method should i adopt to facilitate the process?

Re: SUPPORT “WEALTHY TEACHERS” CAMPAIGN

That's not the idea. IF you really checked out the campaign page, you would have observed that am asking for support to publish the book '22 Secrets of Wealthy Teachers, Vol 1'.

Re: RETIREMENT PLANS FOR TEACHERS

Thanks Mr John for offering your thoughts on the issue. For those teachers in Nigeria, pension is the way out. The reason is that savings diminish with consistent inflation rate. Times are hard in Nigeria now. That is why smart teachers plan adequately for retirement to avoid misery and poverty.

Re: Could someone help me with a lesson.

Since you are new in the school, it takes time to understand the students, and what interest them. Also your class should be conversational. Ask them questions, do not do all the talking alone draw them in.

Re: HELP! Open class 100 students + Parents

Before the open class gets started, it will help if you could sample the opinions of some students that you are sure would be present. This way you have a feel of what is running through their minds
