Today, more than ever before, adults are hungry for learning. Many are seeking skills that can translate into new and better careers. Others want to expand their horizons by learning everything from foreign languages to gourmet cooking to tai chi.

One of the great things about these adult students is that they're motivated. Unlike children, they don't show up in your classroom because they have to be there. Instead, most of them have a burning desire to learn—and that gives you a huge advantage over teachers in elementary and high school!
