Topic: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? A teacher’s ability to relate well with students is more important than the ability to give knowledge. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
What we study and learn in school is basic knowledge that we have to use every day. Teachers or professors tell us everything that we need to know. However, beyond these facts, there is one thing I believe that teachers have to achieve. It is to relate well with the students. Stable, friendly relationships between teachers and students induce students to be eager to listen and study more. It also enables students to feel that teachers are more than just a teacher, a true counselor.
First of all, when a teacher relates well with students, it triggers the enthusiasm of students to listen and study harder. If teachers are friendly, they become more favorable to students. Based on my experience, since I am still a student, I tend to like a teacher who is more amiable. I like teachers who listen to students, share their funny jokes or experiences with students, which is more comfortable. That is why I like their classes. I tend to study harder, and listen more when he or she is there to teach me. I’m pretty sure that it’s not just me who is feeling this affection towards teachers who are able to relate well with students.
Secondly, teachers’ who are more close to students are able to give students more help than normal teachers. Teachers who tend to be closer with students know every single student’s characteristics. For example, they know what problem this student has; they know what situation that student is in. My mom, who is a teacher of a girl’s high-school, has a great ability to get close to her students. One of the students, who sadly doesn’t have a father, said to me that my mom is her greatest friend. She said that my mom gave her lots of tips to overcome the sadness. She also said that my mom understands more than any other friends do. Like her, I used to get very useful advice from one of my English-teachers, who I am most close with.
In conclusion, I think a teachers’ ability to relate well with students is more important than a role of merely teaching. Friendly teachers help students to listen and study more, since they are more close to students. Also, they are able to give useful advice and solutions to a student’s problem. Knowledge doesn’t match a close relationship between a teacher and a student. Relating well means a lot more than merely teaching what they know.
