Care his feeling and emotions. Try to know what their family problems are. Some students may suffer from financial problem; some student may face the problem of low level of eye sight or weak health. . So, teacher should help also in his personal problem. After this its positive effect will be on student and you can make understand every difficult problem of accounting. In English, it is general saying that you can take the horse to water but not make him drink. Same saying happens on accounting teaching.
