Postgraduate Training with Brooke Lieb

Brroke Lieb, Alexander Technique Teacher, Pipersville, PABrooke Lieb, Director of Teacher Training at The American Center for the Alexander Technique, is available for private or shared Post Graduate lessons in Pipersville PA by appointment. Brooke is typically in Pipersville once a month on a weekend.

Continue to refine your hands-on skills; address specific pedagogical questions you have about your students; address your own use in teaching and in life. Private or shared lessons include hands on from me and the chance to put hands on for feedback. You may take one-on-one lessons or shared lessons.

Brooke’s Approach

I believe in cultivating your innate skills. Sessions build on what you are already doing effectively, and focus on empowering you to explore, experiment and ask your student to take a direct role in his or her own learning. The Alexander Technique is a highly effective tool in the hands of every Alexander Teacher.

Topics

• Understanding differences in learning styles, use patterns, and structural variations
• Giving and soliciting feedback from your student
• Matching your verbal instructions with your hands-on work
• Addressing your student’s interests and needs in the context of the Alexander principles.
• Developing your professional boundaries for long term success
• Staying interested and engaged in teaching

Supervised Teaching

In-Person supervised teaching: Sessions can include hands-on support for you while teaching; pedagogical suggestions to more effectively communicate your ideas; suggestions of how to address learning styles and your student’s use patterns in different ways through chair work, activities or tableware.

Skype sessions: I observe you as you work with your student. We decide ahead of time whether you would like me to share suggestions and observations during the lesson or opt to wait until after your student has left the lesson.

Fees for these services are $100/hour
