I came across an observation in my new school regarding the behaviour of my teacher and I'm just curious about it - so I thought perhaps you guys have an idea what it's all about.
I'm in an open beginner class. There are students having their first lesson and students training for about two years and everything in between.
And for the last year our teacher had something like a "favourite" student, who he corrected like ALL THE TIME and giving him a lot of attention - not because of talent (he has no talent - absolutely no body awareness, no memory for movements and has never done any kind of sport before he turned 34 !) but because he is super diligent and works super hard.
But now, after correcting him constantly for one year, he kind of stopped paying extra attention to him.
I wonder why that is.
My guess is, it's because he hasn't really applied the corrections the last few month. In the beginning he was improving really fast but now that he is a little better the improvement slowed down a lot. It's like he has been told corrrections every day for the last month and just isn't able to apply them (he wants to so).
So I thought my teacher is kind of tired to give him the same corrections and so much extra attention without seeing any results.
What do you think about it?
