American Senior Secondary School English Tutor with 5 years Experience andover 50 Straight A's ex-students
English language can be fun when the student understands the morphologies, syntaxes and fundamental concepts of the language itself. Many students/pupils perform poorly in this subject owing to various reasons. My task is to make the subject as simple, fun and loveable, thereby, enhancing the pupil/student's vocabularies and its usage in real life affairs.
I always create lesson plans, review worksheets, and practice tests to prepare students for weekly tests. I have prepared students who successfully passed exams with distinctions. I integrate oral, reading and writing to offer new perspective and respect for student's own life stories. I also monitor, assess and remediate students/pupils performances. One of these concepts is to help struggling students improve their grades and I have helped them achieve the feat. Different students learn differently and it's important for me to identify their own unique learning style, not only to maximise but also to motivate them to learn.
Therefore, I try as much as possible to develop custom curriculums, including homework and assessments and identify delivery style to meet my students/pupils needs. I also assist with homework and other class assignments. I am readily available when the need arises.
