  • You should have a thorough knowledge of your subject matter.Being prepared builds trust.

  • You should take command of the class.If you are not the classroom leader, the students will gladly assume the position.

  • You should act in a mature manner all of the time. Don’t be sarcastic. Don’t tell lies. Don’t lose your temper.

  • You should maintain a certain emotional distance between yourself and your students.Students have peers. They need you to teach.
