This is the first genuine class instructed by me for college student. To be exact, they are juniors. Generally speaking, I ‘m satisfied with my performance to the extent that I didn’t feel nervous at all even though I’m still a green hand.
To be frank, when I answered the phone from my instructor and was told to teach oral English which lasts four class hours, I was so nervous and shocked because I have no confidence. Firstly, I have little time to prepare for this class; and secondly, I myself am incompetent at spoken English.
However, I had no choice but to accept this serious mission. Luckily, I feel the teaching methodology is of much help for my instruction. My principle is that a teacher should regard himself as a partner and guider for his students instead of a knowledge container going great lengths to impart what he knows to his students. The most important point is to involve each of his students in the activities to produce things they have learned.
There are much room for improvement. For example, I should further enhance my English proficiency, broaden my knowledge, organize the class in a more efficient way, and besides attach more importance to teaching presence. I hope to acquire more opportunities for teaching practice.
Fighting! Ye Kim, You can do it!
