Now the question arises how to choose the best teacher or what qualities to look at while selecting a maths teacher. Here are the five top characteristics that every maths teacher must-have. Just continue reading and you will find a solution for choosing a maths teacher.

Sound knowledge of the subject

It is rightly said by Einstein, "if you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough". A teacher must be a master of their subject mathematics. A person should have a sound knowledge of the subject so that he or she can solve every possible doubt of their students. A teacher should have an extensive knowledge of the subject this includes knowledge of algebra, geometry, algebra, statistics, etc. Great teachers do not consult answers at the back of the teacher's guide booklet. They should have all the answers at their fingertips to help solve students solve their problems. The teacher will have the best knowledge of 9th maths study material.


As different students have different interests it's important for a teacher to identify those interests and motivate the students in that direction. A teacher needs to be a good motivator. He or she should motivate their students in the right direction. If a student has an interest in science then the teacher can give him a science-related mathematical problem and the same applies to accountancy, doctors, etc. By doing this they can prevent the students from losing interest and it will keep them engaged in studying mathematics.


A good teacher is the one who makes learning fun and interesting. This can be done by engaging the students in the class. One way communication is never an effective way of learning. Instead, a good teacher should keep an open environment in which students can freely ask their doubts and questions. In the case of maths, this is even more important as this is a tricky subject. To keep the interests of the student alive a teacher should be firm but polite and friendly.

Adaptive to change

Learning is a never-ending process. A teacher rather than being stick to their conventional method of teaching should keep experimenting with their teaching styles. A good teacher should be adaptive to change and bring new technologies and methods to teach the subject. A maths teacher can use different apps and websites which make understanding the subject a lot easier and fun.


Being too harsh on a student for not learning the subject properly can be a bit rude and not acceptable. Moreover, great teachers not only focus on the content being taught but also care for the students. A good teacher should have a caring attitude towards their students and have a supportive nature to tackle the problems faced by their students.

So you use your study material for class 9 cbse maths with the supportive teacher and crack this exam with grace.
