American Common Entrance English Tutor
Home tutor in Yaba, Lagos
I have a proven track record of commended performance preparing pupils for American English common entrance exams; with a passion for education and an unwavering commitment to optimizing pupils successes. I have developed innovative approaches that were held as the model standard for meeting concrete goals in technology integration across the curriculum, experiential learning, literacy and diversity areas.
I have taught various pupils as well as individuals with learning challenges and special needs. I have been commended for ability to redirect students exhibiting behavioural problems. Personally, I love to teach young children basically because I love them. I love composing rhythms, teaching with practical examples/ illustrations, grooming the excellency in them properly and listening to them especially their questions. Passion differs but mine is channeled to developing the young children intellectually and in other spheres of life that would make such child stand out anywhere.
I have also got to realize that teaching with love and at the same time having an approved standard of discipline builds the child academically and morally.
