Positive Ways of Correcting Students:

Give correction in ways that motivate them to be better or do a better job.

Always see yourself as the coach who is helping someone improve.

Show you care. Express concern about sharing ways that they can improve.

Pick the right moment to offer corrections. You should be responding and not reacting to the situation.

Avoid giving the impression that you're more concerned with seeing your ideas put into practice rather than helping the student improve.

Give specific suggestions for improvement.
