Are you as clear as your students need you to be?

To help our students, we tell them what to do better.

Support. Phrase. Breathe.
Be clearer. Take time. Express. 

But while our advice is true, it is only beneficial to our students when they know what those concepts mean, and how to use them.

Sometimes the best advice is not to tell, but to ask.
Not "do this," but "do you know how to do this?"
