Always have available your teacher’s business card you never know when you might meet a prospective student. Save template on your computer and edit with your information, but be careful not to change the format. Print using business card stock.
(When you click on the link above the form is download to your computer and can be open with Microsoft Word. Do not change the template.)
Teachers complete a student roster for each bridge class. Make sure student names, address, email and telephone numbers are printed clearly or typed.
This is an invaluable tool. Feedback from your students will help you improve your delivery for future classes. Have each student complete and return to you an evaluation at the end of your course.
I highly recommend charging a fee for bridge instructions. This planning worksheet will help you set a budget for your class. See how much it cost to conduct a quality class.
Students appreciate a certificate documenting the completion of training. This is not perfect but for the cost of good paper, (resume or parchment paper is recommended) and a color printer it makes a very nice document. It also gives those students who wish to join the ABA at a later time documented proof of taking the class.
