coaching

Instructing a witness before he takes the stand, an unobjectionable practice so long as it is confined to instruction calculated to lessen the ordeal of testifying, explaining what is expected in the demeanor of a witness, but becoming highly objectionable when it comes to the point of telling the witness what his testimony shall be; whispering or signaling to a witness on the stand for the purpose of influencing his testimony.
