I have been a teaching assistant at ASU for several years, and over that time I have taught several small classes as well. I have never been given a negative review and most, if not all, of my students have found me to be a good instructor who is able to make even complex concepts accessible.
The keys to learning anything are to (1) utilize excellent real world examples and (2) self-involvement. The first is key to opening a the door to understanding a topic and the second is the key to learning to walk through it. While this may be difficult to achieve, it has been, in my experience, very effective at assisting students acquire understandings of new topics, ideas, and viewpoints.
