Most of us agree that learning in a small group is easier, more enjoyable, and less time consuming than in a large class. Unfortunately, due to budgets, space, or lack of teachers, many Nail Academies only offer large classes which may consist of up to 20 or more students. While the class may look more like a lecture room, the educators' job however is not to lecture. Whereas in learning within a small student to educator ratio, students are more able to keep up with their interest and focus with the goal of improving their technical skills as there are more engagement with the educators. Let me share my past experiences from some of the the large nail academies I attended in both Singapore and overseas.
"Sometimes I'm afraid to ask too much questions in the class because of the large number of students (12-18). What if i asked silly questions? Will the others laugh at me?
"There are often many distractions in large classes, such as latecomers and people chatting while you are learning."
"In some academies the product which the school provides are without any labels, whereas instructors themselves are using branded products to conduct classes their. Questions are, why are the educators using different products from their students? Are the student kit more inferior and are they safe to use in the long run?"
From these past experiences I have gathered the key points for conducting effective teaching methods in J Nail Studio. Classes will have a low ratio of maximum 3 students to 1 educator per session, and training kit provided for students are definitely the same as to those I'm using personally. Students who are working or studying in the day have the freedom to plan their own timetable according to their schedules.
Our aim is to provide an engaging, high interaction and efficient learning environment.
