to some extent

Do you like homework? Well, to some extent, yes.

'To some extent' means not all of the way, only part of the way.

Notice the following:

  1. To some extent, I think you are really nice.
  2. I asked him if he had regrets, and he said that to some extent he did.

different learning styles

Different people have different learning styles.

'Different learning styles' refers to the way in which different people approach studying.

Notice the following:

  1. A great teacher is one that will teach you according to your different learning style.
  2. We had a class full of people who had all sorts of different learning styles, so it was quite challenging.

a moderate teacher

I would like a moderate teacher actually.

A 'moderate teacher' is a teacher who is average. Here, Tini is talking specifically about how a teacher acts in the classroom and how many rules she has. She wants a teacher who is not too strict but not too easy-going.

Notice the following:

  1. My math teacher is a little too moderate, and the students don't pay attention in class.
  2. She is too much of a moderate teacher. I need someone with more passion.

cross over the line

A teacher who is very understanding and it's OK if there are many rules, however it doesn't really cross over the line.

When you 'cross over the line,' it means that you overstep the mark.

Notice the following:

  1. She was sent to the headmaster, as she crossed over the line with the teacher.
  2. I try not to cross over the line and become too friendly with my staff.

a hands-on feeling

I think I prefer journals and books more where I can have a hands-on feeling.

A 'hands-on feeling' means that something is tactile or that you get involved and stuck into something.

Notice the following:

  1. I like the hands-on feeling that baking bread gives you.
  2. She said that she preferred more of a hands-on feeling, so she would rather wash the clothes herself.
