I feel that I have a better grasp on what it means to be "an effective instructor" and I very much needed the pointers on how to handle the different types of personalities each student has. My goal at this time is to first and foremost look at my behavior and actions when I sense a problem arising with a student. I really never did that before. Or maybe I did it ineffectively? I truly believe this will make a huge difference in my teaching experience from now on."
