What suggestions do you have to help a pupil struggling with a particular topic?
This is another kind of operational question to address a specific situation that a teaching assistant will most likely face in the classroom. Although this is a teacher's role, you must recognize and handle it as a teaching assistant. Provide a concise summary of how you would accomplish this to the interviewer.
Example: - "Every student is unique, and they have their learning capability in different ways." Even the best students can struggle with a topic. The most important thing for a teaching assistant is to notice when this is happening and address it right away. I'd start by confirming that a child is having difficulty, then asking them a series of questions to figure out what's wrong. Once I'd figured out what was causing the problem, I'd give the kid some extra assistance in class or afterward. And I'd talk to the teacher about the matter before taking any of these steps."
