Findings revealed that there were positive relationships between students’ achievement in English grammar and teacher job satisfaction (r= 0.349), teacher-student relationship (r=.172) and lesson delivery (r=.560) respectively. Also, the composite contribution of teacher job satisfaction, lesson delivery and teacher-student relationship to students’ academic achievement is significant (F= 48.334, R=.573, R =. 329) accounting for 32.9% of the variance in achievement.. The relative contributions are β = .420, β=.172 and β=.183) for lesson delivery, job satisfaction and teacher-student relationship respectively.
