Rahul’s Answer

If you persevere and follow your own instincts in responding to the experiences that a particular set of interactions (with Students) creates, you are bound to find a style that you are comfortable with. Remember that your message needs to come across in a cohesive and succint manner. Be astute with your choice of words and economise your interactions to those that have the potential to be most productive. You have to believe in the taught word and need to guard yourself against pandering to pre-existing stereotypes. Do not succumb to the cult of personality, create your own narrative. Challenge and surprise yourself.

Melissa’s Answer

Everyone learns new material differently. I would suggest doing an online search for a free quiz to determine your learning style and seeing how you learn best. Some people learn better by listening, some are visual and learn best of they can see it, and some learn best by doing.

I have to conduct trainings as part of my job and I try to present the material a few different ways in order to get at the various ways of learning. When training or teaching someone, don't speak in a monotone voice, and don't drag things out longer than necessary. Asking follow-ups or giving short little quizzes or assignments may also help people retain the information.

Best of luck to you!

Ryan’s Answer

Your best teaching style? Let’s reframe this; you need to be thinking about how your students learn, that will determine your teaching styles. As you undoubtedly know, there is a myriad of teaching styles, that’s why you are asking this question; your job as a teacher is to address the ‘learning styles’ of your students which will require a deep mastery of many 'teaching styles’ on your part in order to match the multiple ways your students will learn what you must teach them! There will be course work in your program of study that should help you do this. By focusing on how your students learn best will tell you what teaching styles you need to master as a teacher. Keep in mind, teaching the same concepts, skills, etc. most often will require multiple different styles of teaching the same thing. The most successful teachers match their ’teaching style' to how their students learn best.

Neha’s Answer

Hello Brailey,
For teaching I think you have to use an eclectic approach. Because there would be many students and you have to use a different style with every student. Other than that be open, be engaging, Don't be a boring teacher. Students like teachers who are engaging, use activities, use examples, respectful, communicative and motivating. Moreover you have to determine what is the learning style of your student and teach accordingly, for example some students have auditory learning style so they would want you to give them a lecture so they'll prepare notes, or some might have visual learning style so for them you have to use alot of visuals. Hope it helps.
