Student-friendly English Language teacher with laudable achievement

As an English tutor, I competently teach every aspect of English Language namely grammar, vocabulary development, speech work/oral English, listening, reading, and literature. My students develop in every area of the subject. I ensure I teach English Language not as a subject but as a means of expression so that students can relate flexibly with it. I monitor the spoken English of my students and ensure their words are appropriately chosen and their sentences are grammatical as well as the pronunciations of these words. I often remind them to instantly put into practice whatever they learn in the English Studies/Language class.

 

 

The first set of secondary school students I taught English Language from J.S.S.1 to S.S.3 graduated this year making excellent grades in WAEC GCE, WASSCE, JAMB AND POST JAMB English Language examinations. My greatest achievement in my nine years in teaching has always been explaining English Language lesson contents to my students in the most practical way they find absolutely easy to understand. With this approach, they do not only excel in English Language examinations but also experience quality improvements in other subjects as their general literacy skills are awesomely developed in such a way that communicating to others their ideas and thoughts becomes quite easy for them.
