Teaching kids: be friends but keep distance

What are your top 5 tips for teaching teenagers?

I've been teaching teenagers one-to-one for over 10 years. Teaching that way means you start becoming friends, even if you try to keep distance.

So my tips would be about teaching one-to-one:

1) Always ask "How are you?" before the lesson. And if the kid says that he or she is not fine, do not ignore it. Listen to him. There might be a problem he cannot share with anyone else. You are a teacher and a psychologist.
