Have you ever wondered what kind of teacher would you be? What would be the pros and cons of having you as a teacher?

Nice, what subjects do you usually teach and was it at secondary school or university (or both)?

I've no idea. but I'm not very patient, confident, don't think I could plan and execute a lesson plan well, or mange a class well.

although I would describe myself as empathetic if that counts for anything :dontknow:

To be fair you sound very sensible in most of the threads on TSR but I can see how managing a class can be challenging even for someone who might be otherwise a really good teacher

Interesting I did not know we had someone active with 7 years + of actual teaching experience on TSR

I think I would make a good teacher. My teachers used to let me into their lessons in Year 12 to help out or sometimes even teach!

I’m not very patient though.

I would not make a good teacher unless I was teaching top-set, disciplined students.
a) I’m not particularly patient, so after the third time, if the student still doesn’t understand the answer to a maths equation, I start to visibly get frustrated (my sibling can vouch for this)
b) I like doing and completing tasks in an orderly and timely manner - which is never going to work out in a class with 30-odd students.

I'd like to say I could have (or develop) the skills in theory, but I'd probably get in front of a big class and instantly forget how to talk I do enjoy teaching, but I think for now I'm at my limit with small group/individual tutoring - it's much easier to make engaging and well-targeted lessons when you only have a small group of students who all actually choose to be there!

I could definitely never do uni teaching though, I'm terrified of anyone over the age of 18 :lol:

I'd make a terrible school teacher. I like to think I'd be good at the pastoral and lecture/seminar side of teaching at a uni though :moon: Not that I'd ever do either - health can't withstand either role :nah:
