Lesson
Common Entrance English Tutor

As a teacher it has been my responsibility to interact with several groups of people, including administrators, other teachers, paraprofessionals and parents, each day. My duties as a teacher typically included communicating, planning, creating, monitoring and assessing. In the past, I have been able to read and interpret the curriculum standards and use this to plan grade-level appropriate lessons that gave my pupils the best opportunity to learn. I have made use of my lesson plans to teach pupils new skills and concepts through lectures and demonstrations thereby engaging pupils through guided practices. 

Teaching English language has been very interesting as the subject itself is an interesting subject. We speak English everyday of our lives yet we make little mistakes we are unaware of and I have been privileged to be a tutor for English to correct these mistakes.


In the past, I have single handedly helped a pupil who was struggling with her English test score by pulling her aside and offered to sit with her during lunch two days a week so she could get some one-on-one attention. This helped her build confidence and gave her the courage to ask questions where she was unsure about anything.

I believe it is very important for pupils to get the best when it comes to common entrance tutoring as this is the exam that enables them to get into secondary school and there is nothing more important that a solid primary foundation in education.
