While working at the gymnastics center it was my job to teach the students the proper form of the skills. Many times i would have to come up with different variations to teach the children because some didn't understand. I would sometimes stop students in the middle of there skills so I could point out there mistake and try to help them fix it. I ended up learning new ways to teach the same skill. I made sure that I watched every student because if I caught there mistake early it was easier to fix.
