    Yes, it is the “infinitive” with the verb enable before it. Also, their is correct because it refers to your students.

    Yes. However, 1 mistake in this passage is where it says, “I believe if i have a good knowledge and skills on educational pschology.” It should not have an “a” before good knowledge. The *to do their best* part is definetly right.

    I believe if I have sufficient knowledge of educational psychology and the right skills, I will be able to nurture my students in appropriate ways. However, I need to learn more about motivating students. Motivation is important as it will inspire them to do their best.
