  • One important thing in teaching the class is your professionalism. You should be professional in your teaching. You should get to the level of the student and then give them the concepts. In this way they will be able to learn more quickly. Do not try to teach them according to your level. Instead make it easy for them to learn. Also be well prepared for the lesson you have to deliver to the students. You should also be able to answer each and every question that is raised in the class. For that purpose you can prepare for every possible question that can be extracted out of your lecture.
