Actually, I teach teens, so I can mange my lectures by adopting the following techniques:

1-Create strong social relations with my students, so they trust me and like my virtual classes.
2-Excert a lot of time for preparing the lessons by searching in various recourses, to make the topics easier. As a result my I always feel that my students like my lessons and enjoy them, this appears clearly in their high participation and engagement in the sessions. Also, they always messaged me to express their thanks, because they manged to understand the demanding subjects.
