Why do you want to teach?
What’s your teaching style or philosophy?
How would you handle a student you found difficult to teach?
Pulling them aside and having a quiet discussion about the matter would be my first course of action. My primary inquiries would delve into the motivations behind this student’s actions.

I discovered that he felt constrained and uneasy when he sat down for an extended period of time.
How do you motivate students?
How do you like to communicate and build relationships with parents?
Tell me about a time when you worked with a team to solve a problem.
An excellent method to demonstrate that you can communicate and work with others even in difficult circumstances is to share a story about a team setting where things didn’t go as planned. So instead of focusing on the issue, highlight how you overcame it to produce something worthwhile. Even if you lack teaching experience, you can still demonstrate your methods by using examples from your past work in another setting.

This question might be presented in a variety of ways, depending on the subject and classroom you’re enrolling in. Yet, the most important thing is “being able to appropriately demonstrate mastery of the subject [course] compared to just knowing the content.” Do you truly comprehend the subject matter you are teaching from top to bottom?
