Last week, while I was working with a student, I realized that for the last 16 years, the majority of my students and clients have always assumed during their tutoring sessions, they were to only listen and take notes. However, this particular student I was working did something that I was thrilled about - She challenged what I was telling her, and this sparked an engaging learning process where we discussed and went over myths and facts together. Then we used the internet to look up more resources and to find pictures and videos online proving the theory and known fact.
I strongly encourage all students to understand that teachers are there to guide them, and to provide knowledge and learning growth, but there is a point when all students should never hesitate to question, or ask for more. It's alright if the teacher doesn't know everything about the reproductive system or how to grow an avocado plant, but it is the student's responsibility to find out and to continue to learn and grow.
Learning is forever. It's not over after the teacher is done teaching.
