- First and foremost you have an extra ability to understand your students and anticipate problems
As someone who has been in the exact shoes of your students, you are able to have compassion and understanding for how they’re feeling and what support they need in the classroom.

2. you have resources and tricks to face difficult questions smoothly
Its okay to admit to your students that you don’t know the answer to one of your questions! The internet is a vast and wide source of information that can help you double check the correct phrasal verb or preposition. Just be honest and refer to the internet either right there in class or tell them you will have the correct answer for the next class.
3. You can find peace in the fact that NO ONE knows everything
Not even natives! There will always come a time when even natives are stumped about a certain word or the spelling of it and they will have to use the same tricks as you! you learn things from people who are better than you in that thing, so even if you are not the perfect best English speaker in the world who knows every word in the English dictionary, you will have a higher level of english then your students and therefore they will learn; and that’s the goal!
