Senior Secondary School English Tutor
Home tutor in Ikeja, Lagos
Senior School English teacher with over ten years experience in preparing candidates for A's in their examination
I have had over ten years experience in preparing candidates for English at the SSCE level . These years of teaching have been characterized by outstanding performances on the part of the students. My teaching philosophy is predicated on the fact that no child is incapable of learning except that every child learns at different rates.
Having this mindset, I approach every class with the utmost optimism and make the teaching-learning process a learner-centered experience.Consequently, the inevitable corollaries of the philosophy have been success after success.
Since this platform basically concerns home tutorials, I would like to shed some light on my pedagogical methodology in tandem with the fore-mentioned principle which underpins my teaching. I do emphasize areas of the child's weakness for the improvement expected to occur. The results have always been impressive. For instance, I have taught children who had F9 in English at their previous SSCE, but who had a complete turnaround in their subsequent examinations by having A's and B's in the same subject.

I handle the teaching of English in terminal classes: JSS3 and SSS3. I supervise teachers in the department to ensure that they follow the prescribed syllabi, and that they adopt 21st-century learning techniques. I also mark their lesson notes and vet their examination questions for quality assurance.
