Upper Primary English Tutor
Home tutor in Gwagwalada, Abuja
I am currently a 400L (final year) student at the University of Abuja, Nigeria acquiring a degree in Physics Education, (B. SC, Ed) physics. Prior to my study period, I had been a Teacher at the Junior Secondary, primary and Nursery level with over 7 productive years of teaching experience, both as a class teacher in a school setting and also as a private tutor for kids in Lower basic, Basic and junior high levels
I am well experienced in handling problem subjects such as Mathematics, Quantitative and verbal reason, English language, Phonics as well as Basic science and technology.
Through my tutelage, I've had pupils and students who have successfully sat for and passed their common entrance examinations into secondary schools. I have tutored junior high scholars in the BECE examinations and they passed successfully, gaining admittance into senior secondary schools.
I tutor at the foundation level too. I have taught over 8 pupils at the lower level on reading skills, spellings, diction and pronunciation, using the sound patterns.
Apart from my proficiency in teaching, I am also avast with the needs of different pupils, I apply the speech therapy for scholars in need of it, very good with kids, I am patient and tolerant, gentle with my learners and above all, I am a good listener too.
The above mentioned, along side my super believe in my students, the encouragement I give them, my patience, friendly yet firm nature, has made me loved by my students, which in turn motivates them to learn.
Teaching for me is Learners -centred, thus I give my learners the opportunity to actively participate in the Teaching-learning process, I adopt the use of fun activities such as games, role play, use of toys or learning apps and software etc, this way, their interest is ignited and the result is a positive and rewarding.
Teaching is interesting because it feels good to be the vehicle of positive change in an individual.
