Default Techniques in teaching classical piano to adult learners?

I have been teaching children classical piano for more than 3 years. Recently I have requests from adults who are interested in learning piano. Since I have no experience of teaching adults, just wanna get some advice from all piano teachers out there. Any particular teaching technique you found effective at teaching adults?

as an adult, when i took piano, despite having a vast knowledge of jazz music theory, the teacher still taught me as if I was a child

the only difference was of course, that she was attracted to me

i got to Grade 3, ain't no virtuoso but i can transcribe a lot of guitar stuff to the piano

Malaise is THE dominant human predilection.
