Welcome to
The Needs Focused Teaching Method

Let’s face it, two of the most challenging aspects of teaching when it comes to classroom management are getting your students to respond positively to your instructions and getting them engaged in lesson tasks.

The trouble is, like most teachers, you probably have far too many challenging students to deal with, not enough support and limited time to make a success of every lesson, every day. You’re busy enough with the stress of managing a constant stream of behaviour problems whilst trying to juggle the rest of your heavy workload.

And, if you don’t have proven classroom management strategies in place for gaining student attention, respect and compliance – these problems are compounded which can make some days extremely challenging and frustrating.

But I’ve got some good news for you - a range of classroom management strategies and student engagement methods that work like magic…

You see, despite all the challenges in today’s classrooms, there are teachers and professionals just like you who consistently succeed with the most defiant students, and enjoy a new sense of accomplishment, less stress and more joy in their teaching. And this is without relying on bribes and threats.

These people use the Needs Focused Teaching Method to prevent the majority of behaviour problems from happening in the first place by ensuring students are appropriately engaged; and to respond swiftly and effectively to any issues which do arise.

Now you too can use Needs Focused Teaching methodology to prevent problems in your classroom, engage more students, gain more respect, and enjoy your teaching.

On our TESTIMONIALS page, you can see just a FEW of the tens of thousands successes we’ve had helping teachers, lecturers, support staff and other professionals – and we’d like to help you too!
