Welcome to Lesson Time Liberators! This is the course for you if you feel like you’re always running out of time in your lessons, or there’s something new you want to add in.

What You’ll Learn in This Course
This course is all about saving lesson seconds that add up to minutes. You’ll learn 12 tactics that can save lesson time through real-life examples and videos of my real lessons in action.
If you have questions at any point during the course, head over to the Community to ask. No question is too great or too small and we’ll do our best to help!
Amplify Your Results
If you want to get the maximum results from this course there is one thing that will help more than any other: Record your teaching.
I know, this is an uncomfortable thing for 98% of humans. It is totally optional, but it works so I do highly recommend it.
If you set up a video camera (your phone, webcam or anything else you have around works fine!) during your lessons, you can then watch the playback and keep an eye out for all of the time wasters we’ll talk about in this course.
When you’re ready, you can post a clip of your teaching in the Lesson Feedback forum. Getting an outside perspective may help you see trends and patterns in your teaching that you wouldn’t spot on your own.
Whether you’re recording your lessons or just trying to observe yourself as you go, I recommend taking this course at a slow pace. You’ll absorb the material (and ultimately save more of your lesson time) if you take a maximum of one lesson each week. This will give you time to watch out for one lesson time-waster at a time, take notes about your observations and try to make changes in your lessons.
