Abstract

This paper aims to share the author?s personal experience in teaching economics especially on the importance of recognizing the strengths and weaknesses of each student and tailoring teaching approaches to suit their individual needs. It discusses effective teaching techniques, motivation and a caring disposition to promote not only good results, but also a joy for learning and a sense of purpose and personal achievement among students. By putting in that extra effort, learning and progressing with the students and showing a genuine care for them, teachers will also be rewarded not only with good grades, but also a deeper passion for teaching and a more personal relationship with the students which will last beyond the duration of the course.
