Lesson
Upper Primary / Junior high English Tutor

My activity as a teacher during my teaching practice and also my NYSC was to basically put the students through the various aspects of the English language. My main interest and achievements has been through my assessment of the students, I always like to assess students after teaching them in order to know the level of their understanding, so I know if to move forward or to use better examples to explain and I have been able to get positive results




For example in a case where by a student found it difficult to write an essay, I provided the option of giving the student a guideline concerning the essay topic in order to give him ideas on what to put down and how to put the ideas on paper, which he did and it made him better at writing essays. The duration usually given to teach is 40 minutes but most times because English is a vital course we use two periods which is 80 minutes. English language is my forte and it's something I always love to teach to whoever is available to learn.
