Senior Secondary School English Teacher with a difference and unerring record of success

As an English teacher, I believe it is my duty to help the student understand and properly become proficient in the subject. Spoken and written English is very sensitive and very necessary in our day to day communication and being able to both command and use the language is a plus to anyone who encounters you.


I took students who were porous in the subject during my National Youth Service in Osogbo, Osun state 2017/18 batch, and although it was quite herculean seeing that they could hardly spell let alone communicate probably without switching to their mother tongue Yoruba, their constant use of past tense in present tense situations, I had to start off with spelling & dictation, cross checking their notes at 2 weeks interval and giving them lots of assignment to challenge their IQ & help improve their reading, spelling and spoken English.

I eventually left the students better than I met them and given recognition while leaving. I have a passion for imparting knowledge & English has always been something that comes natural to me.

About

I am a graduate of English from the University of Abuja.

I have a couple of years experience in teaching having thought during my mandatory national youth service and also worked as a private tutor teaching English. I live in Abuja where I handle students especially those writing external exams.

My whole goal in teaching is imparting knowledge and improving the level of understanding as well as the attitude towards learning of those I tutor.
