Upper Primary English Tutor
Home tutor in Kosofe, Lagos
I began tutoring six years ago when my younger sister was in preparation for her Common Entrance Examination. Over the next few years, I acted as tutor to all of my siblings and neighbors' children. To my credit are distinction grades in almost all terminal classes, including Common Entrance, Junior WAEC and JAMB.
I regularly tutor some of the children that live around me (ranging from Primary to Senior Secondary). English language is a fascinating one, that I find a lot of people overlook - probably because it is the most universal of languages.
The ability to properly understand it beyond the level of just speaking, to have command over it, to manipulate it any way you want in form of poetry or stories is something I quite enjoy. And as such, I derive joy watching my students become better and seeing them excel in their own way.
My teaching method is to listen to how a child likes to be taught (believe me, they know). Watch out for things that make them grasp better and implement. Go at their pace at first and then gradually increase pace. It seems to have worked so far for me.
I strongly believe that with the right approach and dedication from both parties (student and teacher), any child can unlock their full potential in any subject.

I am a graduate of Computer Information System, Babcock University.
Other than tutoring my siblings and the kids around my neighborhood, I have no formal or official teaching experience.
I do find however, that I work very well with children and I am able to find interesting methods to get a child interested and eager to learn.
Different tactics are required for different pupils and I take the time to understand the child's learning abilities, build on what I have to work with and eventually, improve on the child.
I am very friendly but I also ensure that our work gets done.
