Teacher Interview Sample Questions On Teacher Relationships With Students


Teacher Interview Sample Questions on teacher relationships with students are asked to check the interpersonal skills of the teachers.

1. Do you prefer working with a certain kind of student? For e.g., who is intelligent or sincere or do you think it is a teacher's responsibility to teach any kind of a student, regardless of whether he / she is intelligent or weak?
Answer: All teachers would prefer students who are sincere, but all may not be as intelligent as the others. Teachers must take the challenge of teaching an academically weak student as whole heartedly as they take interest in teaching an academically strong student. A teacher should try as much to his / her ability to help a student succeed academically. Academics are not the only point that teachers should emphasize on. Their over-all development, discipline, attitude etc. should also be given importance to. Assuming that you may have the same ideology as a teacher, you could answer along the same lines as mentioned here.

2. Do you give equal opportunities to all the students in class or do you distribute the responsibilities based on the skills of the students?
Answer: As a teacher if you don't give equal opportunities to students, it is considered as being biased towards a few. Although that could be true, responsibilities should be given to students depending on what they are good at. In most cases, the teacher may not recognize the skills of the students unless they give them an opportunity. So giving opportunities is the teacher’s responsibility and encouraging the students to come forward to participate is also an additional trait that a teacher should possess.

3. How do you normally work with a weak student in your class? How do you encourage such students?
Answer: No student is weak as such. The student may be poor academically but it is incorrect to declare such a child as a weak student. He/she may be good at other co-curricular activities. There could be a number of reasons why a student does not perform academically well. To find those reasons is a teacher's responsibility. Once the problem with the student is recognized and understood by the teacher, it should be easy for them to resolve it. A teacher may need to invest more time and effort with such a student but if taken the right approach depending upon the personality and inhibitions of the child, he/she could be as good as the other students in class.

4. If one of your students was to describe you, how do you think he/she would describe you?
Answer: This is not the time to praise you to skies but it also does not mean that you only highlight your negatives. Maintaining moderate modesty, tell them how you communicate with your students in class and if your student was to describe you, he/she would probably say that you are friendly and understanding; you do not scold or shout unnecessarily etc. Do not ever compare yourself with other teachers and try to portray yourself as the best. Give an honest answer!

5. Based on your experience, do you think teachers should personalize instructions according to the ability of the individual students in class? Or do you think one form of instruction should be followed in class as it would be more feasible for the teacher?
Answer: Of course, it would be convenient for the teacher to follow one form of instruction for the entire class. However, the fact of the matter is that the individual capabilities of students vary in a class and the teachers need to understand that. To obtain full class participation, it is important that every student in the class understands what's being taught. With the body language of the students, the teachers can gage the individual's potential to contemplate and grasp what's being told in the class. If the teacher observes an indifferent nature, he/she should try to simplify the instructions so that student can interpret it correctly and work accordingly.

6. How do you deal with children with difficult behaviors? How do you establish good relations with such students?
Answer: Students with difficult behaviors are easy to deal with. One to one approach serves best in establishing healthy relations with such students. The difficult behavior of a student may be the result of some mental tension at home or otherwise. Understanding the cause of such behavior is the most important step. Once the student starts to confide in the teacher with his/her inhibitions, concerns, troubles or problems, it becomes easy for the teacher to discipline such children. Mostly, it's the underlying causes that lead children to behave unpleasantly. Once the teacher builds a bridge across the student, it becomes easier to communicate and lead the child to the right direction.

7. Any struggle you have had in the past with slow learners? If yes, how did you overcome the issue and how did you make them match up with the rest of the class?
Answer: The answer to this can be referred back to the one where we mentioned about individualized instructions based on the learning ability of the student.

8. Do you often appreciate students, especially slow learners who work hard to perform well and succeed?
Answer: Appreciation is one of the keys to maintain good student-teacher relationships. More significantly, it acts as a great morale booster for students who were not so good in studies or other activities before and are much better at it now. A smile, a good remark, an appreciation in front of the class are some of the small gestures where a teacher does not need to take much efforts and yet it makes a considerable difference in the attitude and performance of the student.
