Each student has different methods of learning and assimilating information. As a teacher I strive to adapt my teaching methods to accommodate for these differences in order to aid each student to have a greater understanding of the subject being taught.
I also feel that creating relatability in a subject is very important. For example, using real life situations that students relate to, to explain complex concepts. Additionally, incorporating the student's passions into examples aids to their interest and concentration to the subject material. This can be more challenging when teaching subjects like Maths but can be incorporated when doing word problems for example.
Lastly, patience. Each student learns at a different pace and as a teacher it is important to remember this.
