Driving instructor qualities

Not everyone is cut out to become a Driving Instructor, or as we call it at L to P Driving School...a Driving Coach.  There is a subtle but important difference between instructing and coaching.  Coaching requires you to really understand your student, how they like to learn, how they take in information, are they more visual, or hands on, all of my students are different, and need to learn the same subject in different ways, ways which suit them as an individual, this is the difference between coaching and merely instructing.  I know which way my students love to learn!
