A positive relationship between the student and the teacher is very difficult to establish, but once established it creates a bond between the teacher and student. . A teacher and student who have the qualities of good communications, respect in a classroom, and show interest in teaching from the point of view of the teacher and learning from a student will establish a positive relationship in the classroom. .

Children have different strategies for learning and achieving their goals. A few students will grasp and learn quickly, but at the same time there will be those who have to be repeatedly taught using different techniques for the student to understand the lesson. .  Understanding the student’s problem, fear, or confusion will give the teacher a better understanding the student’s learning process. Once the teacher becomes aware of the problems, he or she will have more patience with the student, thus making the students feel secure or less confused when learning is taking place in the classroom.

The communication between the student and the teacher serves as a connection between the two, which provides a better atmosphere for a classroom environment. The more the teacher connects or communicates with his or her students, the more likely they will be able to help students learn at a high level and accomplish quickly.

The teacher needs to understand that students come from different cultures and backgrounds. If the teacher demonstrates an understanding of the student’s culture, it will provide a better understanding between the teacher and the student. Those teachers, who demonstrate respect towards their students, automatically win favour by having active learners in their classroom. The arrogant or offensive teacher will lack these positive qualities due to his or her lack of control over the children. Teachers are encouraged to blend their warmth and firmness towards the students in their classroom, but with realistic limits.

Teachers learning cannot be forced. Learning becomes a process for an individual where he or she feels comfortable with learning whether it’s in a classroom or at home. Students learn when they enjoy learning. Authoritarian control is often destructive to students

Teachers should give appropriate and helpful feedback to their students. Interaction between the student and teacher becomes extremely important for a successful relationship through the entire time of a school/ college year.

Teachers who follow the traditional curriculum do not necessarily need to focus on their traditional ideas, but rather interact with their students and find interesting topics to discuss with their students.

Teachers can establish a positive relationship with their students by communicating with them and properly providing feedback to them. Being established a positive relationship with students encourage students to take education with enthusiasm and teachers will be recognized because the students will inculcate at least one way or other Ten Commandments for better Teacher -Student Relationship
