Pre-Primary & Lower Primary Tutor
Home tutor in Surulere Lagos State, Lagos
Pre-primary and lower primary educator
I have a passion for teaching children in the early childhood stage and lower primary. I have been a member of this honorable profession for almost 6 years teaching both in schools and as a home tutor. I have acquired and i'm still acquiring knowledge through training and cpd courses. My lessons are child centered and activity based which helps the pupils inculcate what is taught.
I love using phonics to teach pupils because if they are introduces to sounds first then it helps them with their diction which in turns helps their reading speaking skills. Children who read are more inquisitive about the world around them and would always thirst for more knowledge. I have observed that teaching math skills to pupils help them develop problem solving skills, language, number sense and shapes which is the foundation for more learning to occur.
I also teach the pupils to recognize and respect the physical, social and emotional development of themselves and their friends. I have worked with various age groups of children between ages 1-7, i know their developmental and academic milestones and can work based on and also around those milestones if necessary. If you are hire me then you are hiring an individual who cares about your child a lot and not just educationally.
I am a graduate of psychology from covenant University, presently doing my masters in developmental psychology at the University of Ibadan.
I have 3-4 years of experience of working with children in formal settings such as school and at home as a home tutor. I work with children in nursery and primary school; which means I can handle any subject in their curriculum.
My special skill when working with children is the passion and motivation I invest into educating them and the fact that each child is special.
