Mixed method of qualitative and quantitative methods was used. The researcher use a number of validated forms by teachers, and this information was converted into numeric data. Then, descriptive statistics were used and the results were interpreted. The research community included 1200 students of Arak city in Iran. 32 students were selected by an available sampling method. Three types of variables categorized in the model include decreasing variable (DV), increasing variable (IV) and learning variable (LV). Results showed that with decreasing of (DV) and increasing of (IV) we can increase the level of learning and improve teaching skills.
