Any profession requires preparation and skills, but most of all confidence. Hence, teachers should develop confidence to achieve their aims not only in their profession but also in their lives. Thus, if a teacher lacks of confidence it can become a relevant issue in its profession, moreover it could harm the learning process of the students. Thereby, how teachers can increase their confidence in the classroom? Teachers can increase their confidence trough constant preparation and updating, not only about the different topics, issues and technologies, but also about the new methodologies to teach English. However, this is not enough due to, the teacher must love its profession with all the benefits and sacrifices that this profession entails. Therefore, the lack of confidence could be related to the absence of formation or passion in the profession. The groundwork is fundamental to maintain determination during the learning process of the students, because if the pupils sense any insufficiency about the knowledge and the preparedness of the professor, it will threat the authority of the tutor and its assurance. In addition, a steady updating could improve the certainty of the lecturer since it develops contemporary skills and abilities that enhance the learning process. As a result, a strong education on the field as well as a constant updating allow the lecturers to aboard the newest obstacles on the field like the development of new technologies that affects the teaching process, or the implementation of a new methodology that could be uncomfortable to the professor. Despite an excellent formation and an awareness of constant updating, teachers should love their profession and the labor of teaching. Since, passion for what we do carries excellence and confidence not only in our profession but also in our lives. According to Steven Pinker (psychologist), in his article “fear and passion”, people who love their job are better professionals and improve their lives far better than people that work only for necessity or money. Besides, Steven Pinker stated that people with joyful jobs had improved their confidence, even at the point to be more attractive to the opposite sex. As we can see, devotion entails formation and constant updating, so the main feature to have a robust confidence, is love for what we do, and the rest will come by itself. In order to build a firm determination, all the teachers should be aware of their happiness in their job as well as the contentment in their lives. Likewise, the instruction is an important responsibility for the tutors, hence a steady poise has a determinant impact on the scholars. Since the tutoring is the transfer of knowledge, abilities, skills and “know how”, a lack of confidence threats the retention of those issues in the student mind. Consequently, the whole guiding process would be infructuous and it will harm the determination of the tutor, creating a viscous circle. In conclusion, the building process of confidence requires a lot of tools and materials. Nevertheless, most of the main features will come by themselves if the teachers have passion and love for the profession. In that way, confidence should not be a problem if this labor was the right choice. Hence, the confidence problem is more about the selection of the profession than the classroom or the profession itself. However, it is necessary to keep in mind that preparation and steady updating are necessaries, but if the teacher has passion, those features are implicit.
