This semester is my first time to teach Calculus II in a classroom which contains around 25 students. (In fact, this is a discussion class.) I didn't have much experience about teaching. For instance, I thought I explained something quite clearly in the class, but the students still did not do very well in the weekly quiz.
Do you have any useful suggestions for how to start with teaching and being a good teacher?
(By the way, I am not a native English speaker. My accent might confuse them, however, I wrote down most of what I said on the blackboard.)
