Hello,

Please help me with this one. I'm not sure the highlighted words are proper to use in here:
-At times/occasionally, he was bewildered/confused by not being able to develop new and interesting techniques/strategies to teach and to accommodate to students’ needs.

Thanks!

    Hi,

    I'm not sure. I wouldn't consider someone to be confused/bewildered if he couldn't come up with new techniques. Are you sure you mean he was confused? As for "techniques" vs. "strategies", I would choose "techniques". The use of "to" before accommodate is optional but the "to" after accommodate (accommodate to students' needs) is not necessary.

    Cheers!

    Hi mrbila,

    Thanks for your help. I just want to make sure if 'in' is needed here:
    -I'm not sure the highlighted words are proper to use in here.

    As for the other sentence, what about 'frustrated'?

    Hi,

    Yes, "frustrated" may be better, and yes you can use "in" there or you can omit it. ;)

    Cheers!
