Shut Up!

As coaches and teachers we talk too much.  Just shut up and let the students learn.

 “The best way to learn is to do; the worst way to teach is to talk.”  -- P.R. Halmos

That's the first sentence of an article called "The Teaching of Problem Solving"Paul Halmos was a mathematician.  He may as well have been a tennis coach.

Hat tip to Seth Roberts for mentioning the Halmos article on his blog.
