WAEC Literature in English tutor with 10 years of Experience

For me, English language and Literature are some sort of Siamese twins. This explains why I have for over 10 years taught the both of them with so much passion. My passion for Literature begot my addiction to writing.

I am a writer of poems, plays and novels. My first published novel (The University of Life) was recommended, in 2012, by the Lagos state government, for use by the students of S.S.S 3 class in all schools in Lagos state.

I always emphasize creative writing in my classes. Aside the rigorous creative writing drills I subject my learners to, I have facilitated creative writing contests in the schools that I have taught.

In one of my previous schools (Ifako International School), the annual Director’s Essay writing contest I started (and efficiently managed for two years) created some great student writers for the school. My passion for Literature always inspires my learners to be better at the subject and then, my addiction to writing (especially poetry) has created poets and story writers out of some of them.

I am a teacher of English and Literature in English, both of which I have taught excellently for over ten years, at different levels (Primaries 5 & 6; J.S.S 1-3; S.S.S 1-3; Post-secondary & A-Levels). I am a skilled and meticulous instructor for SAT and IELTS. I am also a consultant on matters related to English Language and Literature (in English) teaching.

For me, teaching started as a hobby, sometime in 2002, but it grew to become an unquenchable ‘addiction’. I obtained my two degrees (B.A and M.A) in English, from LASU and the University of Ibadan, respectively. I later did a postgraduate diploma in education (PGDE), to professionalize my teaching passion. Undergoing these three programmed exposed me to the culture of rigorous reading and researching. This explains why, in all my years as a teacher, I have always made it a duty for every student of mine to embark on researching, individually and collectively.

    After graduating from secondary school, the prospect of further education for me became bleak, due to lack of sponsorship. So, I decided to enroll at a fashion house, where I got trained for one year as a fashion designer, specializing in embroidery. After the training, I worked under the aegis of some designers who had just started conquering the just booming business of embroidery within my community (Oke-Ira, Ogba). Then, I got enough funds to secure admission to study English at LASU. In the embroidery business, I began winning the hearts of clients with my unique style of embellishing beautiful patterns on fabrics. I juggled the time-consuming business of embroidery and the time-demanding business of study, till I successfully financed myself through a five-turned-seven year part-time study at the Lagos State University (LASU), where I read English, and graduated in 2008 However, in the course of studying at LASU – specifically, sometime in 2003 – I discovered a new passion – teaching – that was to later grow into an unquenchable obsession. Then, enthralled by the feedback from the recipients of my tutorial services, I vowed to pursue a freelance career in teaching. That decision later rubbed off on my designing career so much that, by 2007, I had quit the business of etching varied patterns on fabrics and had settled fully in the business of etching intellectual patterns on learners’ minds. Today, I am a profoundly proud teacher with a proud track record of having trained and produced brilliant students, who have either graduated and have started working successfully or still studying across Nigerian universities and beyond.
