People respond to new information differently. Each us has certain learning styles and learning curves. Some people learn things faster in a short span of time while others need time to process new information. Learning is correlated to comprehension and as teachers, it is important to understand how quickly our students learn. Doing frequent spot checks also help before moving on to the next lesson to gauge understanding. This way, you will be able to focus more on them and come-up with activities and initiatives to address the questions and concerns. For students who tend to process lessons slower, you may allot a 2-3 hour one-on-one tutorial session so they will not be left behind in class.

Everyone has their own learning curves. Take this as a challenge. A good teacher knows how to handle these type of students. Give examples for easier understanding.
