Our Mission

Pearls of Learning



(Pearls of Learning)

Als Seminare bewährt und nun auch als Bücher erhältlich:

" Teachers are seasonal workers, 

whose tongues wear out long before 

the other parts of their bodies!”

We offer a series of seminars on nonverbal and verbal classroom management. It is possible to take all of the seminars in the series which then ends with the certification “NLPaed Associate in Classroom Management” or you can take only the first introductory seminar as a “taster”.


Who is it for?

It is for all educators who want to teach in a brain friendly and motivating way. This includes teachers and facilitators of all subjects and age groups, those responsible for school curriculum or company training programs and personnel development.



We talk and talk and talk … and very often we are frustrated by the feeling that our students simply aren’t listening or aren’t taking our verbal instructions seriously. It has been proven, however, that over 82% of a teacher’s communication with his/her students in the classroom is NONVERBAL.


Why should we waste our breath on the teaching process rather than use it for our content? Especially when nonverbal management techniques are so much more effective.


These seminars provide teachers with a bit of theory and a great number of practical tools, which allow them to do what they actually became teachers to do – to teach!



Here are links to three videos which show some of the nonverbal techniques we teach teachers:
