Some tips to improve the confidence when teaching

Somehow, students are afraid of English as their main subject in a TEFL class. As a result, they tend to hate some English teachers that are supposed to be the ‘killer’ teachers with a ‘deadly weapon’ called English. This kind of case may be found in some of Indonesian school. For some, new teacher, just like me, it will lead to a confidence problem. 

How if when teacher comes in and says hello to students, but no response at all? That will decrease the mood of teaching and mostly our confidence in teaching the students. Alright, to advance our self-assurance, I will divulge some suggestion to improve your confidence as a TEFL teacher in my lovely blog, The Sun Shine: 

Study the basic teaching books
When teachers are convinced with their ability in teaching, then they may start to be more confidence to teach in front of the students. Besides, reading the basic teaching books will also advance teachers’ knowledge of how to teach. Therefore, they will have a sense of teaching that lead them be a better educator. 

Prepare for a good appearance 
The most important thing is preparing the tidiest clothes for the class. How you can be a confidence teacher if you wear a rumpled clothes which may also be moldy shirt. Moreover, teacher also needs to pay attention to the haircut, if you think that it’s already mess, then you can prepare a comb on your pocket. 

Make some observation 
Yeah, it will be quite important to note that a teacher needs to know many things about the students, for example: students’ basic ability of English and how they can study comfortably. Besides, teachers may conduct peer observation. This is intended to analyze some perspective of teaching. As a result, teachers can get the evaluation of their ways teaching the students, so they Do something step by step teaching will be easier if you make a proper plan before teaching students. When, construct your syllabus you need to start your lesson in order. You can start from the basic skill, intermediate and advance level.
