Teaching strategies are techniques, a teacher’s unique way he teaches to promote the teaching in ways that keep students engaged and learn different skill sets. A teacher may choose a different teaching strategy according to the topic, class level, class size, students’ ability, and classroom resources. There are different kinds of instructional strategies employed by teachers to achieve teaching and learning goals and support different students in achieving effective learning outcomes. This research examines the impacts of strategies in teaching on students’ performance in school. Depending on the case and classroom activities according to teaching strategies, a specific strategy can also be employed to teach a particular skill to a particular student or group of students to have them learn effectively. For example, a teacher could use a combination of computer-based activities, lectures, and group problem-solving to deal with a section of their syllabus. A qualitative research methodology has been used, and an open-ended questionnaire was distributed for the collection of data. Participants of the study, teachers (15) and administrators (15) were selected randomly for both the public and private schools. As teaching techniques improve based on increased knowledge of how students learn, teachers are progressively advancing their teaching strategies in line with evidence-based practices and their student’s learning needs. Inherently, no teacher can use all teaching strategies to fit all individual student’s needs in a class. Rather, he needs to reflect on how to balance the needs of various learners without offsetting the learning practice by trying to be all things to all students to enhance student performance in school.
