Thread: Thinking of becoming a motorcycle instructor - Anyone on here done it, or is one?

  1. #17
    King Rat you've used your definitions to further your own argument which imo is utter bollocks

    Do you really think labelling someone as coach, intructor, facilitator etc. has any bearing on the quality, fun and outcome of anyone learning to ride a motorbike?

    What does make a difference is how well the two interact with enthusiasm from both parties. Surely you understand a good 'instructor' is also coach, mentor, demonstrator, teacher.....labels only change with fashion but the means by which people learn is constantly evolving

    I thought I tried to explain what I meant - obviously badly.

    Instructor = issues instructions, hence my 'thou shalt do this...learning parrot fashion by repetition.

    Coach = getting the best out of people according to their ability.

    Does that dig a bigger hole? Or go some way to clarifying what I was trying to portray? Not arguing with eiether of your statements, trying to improve mine.

    I agree with you Tim.

    Coaching is a sub-function under the larger 'instructor' umberella.

    A good instructor will use coaching techniques when necessary...a bad one just gives out instructions with no consideration of anything else....I think it's the latter your getting at Simon.

    I dont see how you can instruct (sucessfully) without coaching.
