Hi ajarnpreaw,
I don’t how old are your students, because it depends. Any way I ‘ll write some general advices, which are fit for all
considering you are a new teacher. 1. Get your lessons ready, well prepared.
2. Be friendly and face your students with smiles.
You don’t need to frown at all, but don’t forget
Once you lose control, you will never restrain it.
3. Appreciate clearly the students’ correct answers
And their participations even if they are not quite correct.
( I sometimes say to my students when they make slight mistakes
“this is a good mistake. Or this is a legal mistake” They feel proud and listen to the correction happily.
4. Do not help your students too much, just wait they ‘ll answer.
I know that these are simple known rules, but they are the most important pillars for teaching.
Thank you for arousing this point, hoping these fundamental tips help. Adilk
