This book consists of 13 articles, has well over 20,000 words, and includes a useful glossary. Topics covered include getting your first instructing job, conducting trial lessons, teaching emergencies, and how to deal with panicky students. it is based on Helen's personal experiences, and includes many interesting anecdotes. A good read!
