    The role of teachers is becoming very challenging these days.

    Job Interview between a boss and a new teacher

    Boss:
    26. What are the challenges for teachers in handling the modern day students?

    Teacher:
    The role of teachers is becoming very challenging these days. Especially with both parents working and the time they spend with the children for their studies is drastically coming down. Also the expectations of the parents on their children both in studies and extra-curricular activities are very high. All this becomes a great challenge for the teachers in giving individual attention to each child rather than just delivering the lesson. Also the improving technology and communications are giving children a great exposure to the happening around the world and tinge of innocence is completely missing. Children are able to get any sort of information in a click of mouse on the internet. Hence the teachers are facing a great challenge in handling students in the current day. Teachers need to really pull up their socks and improve their knowledge and not just rely on the text books.
    Would you please do me a favor by proofreading the teacher's response?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: The role of teachers is becoming very challenging these days.

    Is this a classroom assignment? When is it due to be handed in?

    I think you should tell your teacher you are getting help on the Internet. Maybe your teacher could check this website to see what questions you are asking and what answers you are getting.

    I have finished my studies but my English is not really that good. No teacher has has asked me to do any assignments about these interview questions. I just ask these questions because in the future I may want to go to China to work in a kindergarten or teach English for kids. But thanks for the proofreading.

    Second paragraph. Second sentence. Say:

    Especially with both parents working these days the time they spend with their children helping them with their studies is drastically decreasing.

    I believe "textbook" is one word. You don't need "the" before "textbooks" there.

    To show your appreciation you can buy me lunch.
