As a class teacher you will need to hone your personal and communication skills. In particular your listening skills, your questioning skills, your ability to give complex and difficult explanations and your ability to end classes effectively. Below are some useful hints:-
There are a number of techniques you can use to encourage students to ask questions and to open up discussion.
The most obvious is to draw on students’ questions and comments and to enlarge upon them with your own remarks. What do you do if the subject matter is new and your students are too? You may want to jot down several statements or questions beforehand and use these as a springboard.
For many quantitative subjects, you may want to plan out a sequence of short questions aimed at helping students work their way through a problem, or grasp a better understanding of a theory or model. A number of class teachers in Economics, Maths, Statistics and Accounting and Finance use this approach. Some will go round the class more or less sequentially, so students know when their “time” to answer is approaching and can prepare. Others take a more random approach, calling on people by name. Yet others ask questions to the group as a whole, and let whoever wishes to respond.
