British Pre-Primary & Lower Primary General Tutor
Home tutor in Lekki, Lagos
Being a teacher is a tough job but I have always known since I was little that helping others grow is where my true passion lies. I sat down with my favorite teacher to get a better understanding of the job and if it was something that I should pursue. I was so inspired by her love for learning and desire to make a change that I knew there was no other option for me. There is a joy that comes with knowing you contributed to the growth of individuals and that is what keeps me going. Having to diversify from the Nigerian curriculum to the British curriculum has been somewhat challenging as well as exciting.
According to the British core curriculum, the mission of pre-primary education is to promote children’s prerequisites for growth, development and learning. An essential task for pre-primary education is to guarantee equal opportunities for children to learn and start school. Pre-primary plays a key role in early identification of support needs and for provision of support.
As a Pre-primary tutor, I create opportunities for diverse interaction with other people as this helps to strengthen children’s healthy self-esteem and boosts positive learning experiences and supportive feedback. Learning by playing is also very essential because through play and activity in versatile learning environments, children can expand their competence in different fields of knowledge and skills according to their age and preconditions.
My experience as a Pre-primary teacher has taught me that Pre-primary education is based on integration of education. The implementation of pre-primary education is based on learning modules with different scopes in different ways.
A general aim is that the British curricula for, pre-primary education and basic education should form an integrated whole, where different levels of education form a logical continuum from the children’s point of view and I have the knowledge skill set on how to execute this.
