Senior Secondary School English Tutor
Home tutor in Ido, Oyo
I have taught over 80 students who have successfully passed the Use of English and English Language examinations in JAMB and WAEC respectively. I possess the ability to impart the necessary knowledge in Phonetics/Phonics, Syntax/Grammar, Creative writing (Letters and all forms of essays), Registers, Vocabulary development, and Word relations (Antonyms, Synonyms, Homonyms,e.t.c).
I make use of the learner-centered approach when teaching and this makes my students reveal their academic frustrations and fears to me. After they open up, I design my teaching strategies to meet their educational needs. This is an approach that has worked wonders for the past five years and it is premised on the reality that a learner needs to be motivated before learning can be successful.
I motivate my learners to assimilate and propel them towards successful completion of the Senior Secondary educational stage. I derive pride in seeing my students attain tertiary educational level in various prestigious Universities and Polytechnics.
