's preferred teaching style:
I use the following teaching style:
Socratic Style of Teaching

The Socratic style: It aims is to foster critical thinking among students. The Socratic method gives students questions to which they have to find answers through a process of reasoning. Students are trained to inquire, probe, and seek more questions in the answers they receive.

The Socratic style presents concepts and ideas that can be analyzed, and assumptions can be questioned. Students are forced to think about the implications and consequences of their actions and thoughts.
