Junior Secondary English Tutor
Home tutor in Lekki, Lagos
An English tutor your child(ren) would love.
I believe I have what it takes to function effectively as an English teacher since I have taught and acquired knowledge in the field from various schools such as Logos Comprehensive College(Maryland), C.A.C.College (Itire,Surulere)-where I fulfilled my mandatory national service requirement,and Timi Comprehensive College,Twins Street(Itire, ),as well as Grandmates Secondary School,Okota,where I am presently teaching . Hence,I believe I have acquired the necessary skills to handle and tutor children. At the same time, the knowledge gained has given me the opportunity to expose my students to various examinations (both internally and externally) which they have passed as well as various essay,debate and quiz competitions which they have participated in and won. As a graduate of English and literary studies and one who has bagged a professional degree in Phonics and Phonetics, I can comfortably teach all aspects of the English language,Phonetics (diction) and Literature-in-English. My teaching and communication skills are constantly undergoing improvement as the academic curriculum is constantly evolving.

Do you have a child(ren)who is of age but still struggling to read?I can help out with this using Jolly Phonics method to teach her sounds and how to blend her sounds inorder to pronounce words.
Do you have children who are struggling with any aspect of English language (Comprehension, Summary,Essay Writing,Lexis and structure, Vocabulary Development or Phonetics)?
Are your children Preparing for external examinations like:Common entrance, Checkpoint,WAEC,NECO,JAMB?
If your answer to any or all of the above question is,'Yes',then I will be of great help to you and your child(ren), since I am a graduate of English and Literary studies from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka,Enugu state,Nigeria.I have also bagged a professional certification in Phonetics and Phonics from Quints Diction Academy,Ikeja,Lagos.
I have had above six years of productive teaching experience from teaching in schools like:Grandmates Secondary School,Okota and Jasper International school,Ikate,Lekki.The knowledge gained from teaching children have made me appreciate the uniqueness of each child, as every child can be successful in his or her chosen career, if properly tutored.
I live in Lagos, where I have successfully tutored and prepared over five hundred students for both internal and external examinations like:WAEC,NECO,GCE,JAMB, concentrating in English language and Literature-in-English.These students have by God's grace not only passed these examinations but, have gone ahead to do excellently well in their chosen fields.
As one who has been marking WAEC for the past four years,I have been able to identify certain areas students struggle with in English language such as Phonetics, Summary and Essay Writings, and I have been able to motivate my students to do excellently well in these areas by teaching them the Do's and Don'ts of such aspects of English language.Hence,my students have successfully triumphed over their fear of answering English language questions in various examinations.
I am available for both online and physical tutoring.
