In a class sometimes a teacher becomes nervous due to some specific situation, number of students, age of students, behavior of students, his own low confidence or any other weaknesses. Today we’ll discuss some general problems and will provide you some useful tips to cope with these problems. These tips are as a guide especially for new/young teachers. The guidelines are as follow:
First thing that a teacher requires must is his/her positive thinking and behavior. Don’t think what strange has happened with you, just take it normal, simple and easy, whatever the situation you have to face. Think positive and do positive. Try to be humble and confident, if not, just pretend as you are so positive, humble or confident. When you are angry with a student, want to punish him/her use only respectable and positive words and pretend to have cool temperament.
For example, you are presenting in the class and ask something about the topic, you should say, (Who can tell me about this?) Instead of (Not a single person among you can give me the answer?)
Or if a student gives all the answer s and does not provide a chance to the other students, then doesn’t shout at him/her, take it positive and say, (I appreciate your interest or preparation, can any other student want to share him/her knowledge or experience in this regard? ) So be positive this is a readymade solution to every problem.
Do Before time:
Always prepare yourself completely before time. Like, you have to present in the class, next day. So prepare your topic today revise it and practice it as you are in front of the class, or practice it before the mirror. You can also make practice by your mobile record and resolve the weaknesses by playing the recorded action. So that you can be confident and perfect in class tomorrow.
If you have to use some technology or kind of new technology, check it before use. If you have to perform an experiment, try to perform it as a practice, so that you can cover the mistakes in real performance.
Try to wear comfortable dress. If, for any reason, you can’t present correctly in the class or forget some point/s of the lecture or feel dryness in your throat because of nervousness or long term speaking, don’t be anxious, try to be relax for some minutes, have a long breath, drink water or some drops of water, take a round of the rows of the students in the class, have a glance on your notes, and do every thing you can do there for a while to relax yourself. Then restart after some relaxation.
