How To Be An Excellent Teacher

Hi, I’m Carolina Massie from Greater London
Tutors, and I’m going to give you some information on how to teach certain subjects. Here’s the
basics on how to be a good teacher. It’s important to be relaxed and easy-going because students
respond to confidence. You’re going to stay professional at all times
and remember that it isn’t a joke at the end of the day. Being creative really helps, finding
different ways to teach, keeping it interesting, keeping it exciting, keeping it fresh helps.
Obviously, having the knowledge of your subject and being up to date in your subject is really
important. But you don’t have to know everything and
the more you’re willing to learn from your students, the more they’re willing to learn
from you. Have a passion for your subject, so the more enthusiastic and passionate you
are about your subject, the more enthusiastic and passionate the students might be. Obviously,
being enthusiastic. Allow your students to develop an understanding
in different ways and different speeds, different students then at different speeds, and they
might learn better gradually, some might learn better by listening, some might learn better
form reading, so just find the best way for your student. Demonstrate empathy. Students
will get things wrong, this is the first time that they will be learning something, so it’s
obvious that they will make mistakes. When students make mistakes, it’s a great
way to start. You can encourage students to make mistakes so they never feel pressured
or bullied by any of the students. It’s important to set appropriate targets and goals and clear
tasks, always setting the appropriate target for the age that you are teaching for. Use regular informal assessment as well as
formal assessment and make sure to give positive feedback. You can use a multisensory approach,
use different materials as many different materials as you can find to keep it interesting
and keep it fresh. And obviously, encourage students to think for themselves. These are general tips on how to be a good
teacher. .

  1. Having a good sense of humour and a rapport with the children… I would also add a good understanding of technology. Using iPads really engages the children and encourages independence!

  3. Very good tips, nicely presented, but being hyper critical way too many ehms! I noticed this as I'm an English teacher and it's something I do myself and after it being pointed out in student feedback I intend to cut it out, at least I'm not alone in doing this 🙂

  4. i have always wanted to be a teacher!! aim eleven years old11 thats my dads picture its fun to be a teacher are you a teacher

  5. i am very happy to your program this is very helpful in pursuing my teaching and my teaching method

  6. I am keen on teaching cause I like always being among my student and this the best opportunity for me to get profit so that I can improve my way of teaching. many thanks.

  7. In a few months I would start my practice teaching and unfortunately I'm starting to feel uneasy everytime I imagine myself in the front of the students😯

  8. Well, your points are quite useful to get a petter position before the students in the classroom, I'll note them down!

  9. I have always been thinking that making mistake is not obvious, but rather it's wrong. I guess this is the result of the educational systen of my country, Korea. Students in Korea (including me) often become afraid of answering, cuz we are anxious about our mistakes which may be nonexistent. Our parants, teachers, and many other adult have always taught us that making mistakes is a shame. But by watching this video, now I am able to say to them that that idea is basically wrong. Thank you for the nice tips. I hope I can be a great teacher like you.

  10. Thank you for such brilliant way of thinking,I wanna add excellent communication skills as one of the success factors in teaching.God bless you.TEACHER BOAZ Nairobi Kenya.

  11. Don't be afraid of making mistakes. Reflect upon them and use them as learning opportunities.

  12. La la land! The first, most important element of being a good teacher is to be a frightening, dictatorial, straight-from-hell disciplinarian. What, you think the kids WANT to be in school? Ha! They hate every minute of being there — and they will go to great lengths to undermine your enthusiasm, empathy, creativity and all your other pie-in-the-sky notions of pedagogy. A kid acts up: hammer him! Call his parents and demand they come in to discuss their little darling's disruptive nature. RULE your classroom, or you will get nothing done. At the slightest misbehavior STOP the class. Pound that little snot nose down. It might take several weeks to establish who's the boss — and then you can ease into all the sweetness that this little lady in the video advocates so, um, enthusiastically. Demand excellence and you'll get it. Ask for excellence and they'll spit mud at you every time. And you'll be a pariah in the faculty lounge.

  13. I have a question for you. If you are in a classroom where 35 students are not discipline, do you think that a Teacher will continue being a good teacher? How can we "teachers" control that situation and continue being a good Teacher?

  14. An excellent teacher to whom?? I mean, it really depends on the cultural background, the way of understanding and a lot more. Some of those "traits" you mentioned, just won't work in my classes.

  15. I want to congratulate the excellent work of this page, I am Renzo Mendez, Bachelor of Education Sciences with many years of study and experience solving problems with thousands of students with various academic, social and psychological problems. In this opportunity together with other professionals we have created the following platform, where we provide various pedagogical strategies directed exclusively to teachers / teachers, including the initial level, primary, secondary, and university, in order to help them progress work and personally. We are waiting for you.

  16. I'm a filmmaker and I made a comedy about bullying teachers…BTW I wish I had more teachers like you … here is the video if it makes you curious

  17. This is very insightful, considering that I'm finishing my physics and chemistry studies and will soon become a teacher. I could easily be strict, but I don't want students to fear me, it makes them hate a subject that they might actually love

  18. Simplify, don't complicate. Here's a thought though…. if work was fun, can you truly produce results?

  19. How about not dressing like you are still in high school. Do you really need tight tube tops to teach?

  20. I would like to get more experient teacher by using many wipesites of English language. Could you help me, please?
