Teaching in a classroom setting is a difficult task because the teacher needs to interact with students who are approaching differently. Students have different interests, backgrounds and learning styles. Some students need to hear the study material, others to read it or see visual representations, some others to engage with it in a problem-solving manner and others need to dip into the study materials and understand it from different angles.
