Lesson

It is interesting to consider the fact teaching is a noble vocation. Teaching gives me a great pleasure as it affords me an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution in the life of a child who needs the linguistic guidance and model to learn from.

I have discovered how wonderful teaching is because I have taught the English language to students in various classes, and discussing the varieties of the English language and how inability to understand these varieties can cause a communication breakdown helped my students to buckle down to serious studies.

Their efforts were rewarded with admissions in various tertiary institutions in Nigeria and outside the country.

I am confident that the impact I have made and can still make as a proud language teacher will help my country to have more confident students in future.

About

I am Martin Ekwueme, a young man from Enugu State. For my first degree, I read Communication Arts & English at the Univerity of Ibadan. I continued with English Language for my second degree in the same university.

I have over 15 years experience teaching the English Language and Literature-in-English tosecondary school students. My reputation as a conscientious tutor and a lively conversationalist has endeared me to my students who don't fail to reach out to me when they have important academic issues to discuss. I prepare advanced students for GRE Analytical writing and Verbal Reasoning, IELTS reading, writing, speaking and listening, SAT reading and Error-free communication classes for professionals who wish to improve their competence in the English language.  The recommendation of my students have helped me to move on with helping more people in need.

My passion for the training of young people have kept me in the teaching field for more than a decade. I hope to contribute meaningfully to the building of minds and helping people pursue their future.
