Senior Secondary School Literature in English Tutor
Home tutor in Ido, Oyo
Based on my experience, I strongly believe that the fundamental knowledge of literature such as Literary devices, figures of speech, genres of literature, elements of the three genres of Literature, narrative techniques, Literary appreciation and so on are very crucial if a student or learner is to succeed in the Arts. It is almost impossible to properly interpret and analyze drama, Prose and poetry without these basic knowledge.
Therefore, whenever I tutor learners, I ensure that they have strong fundamental knowledge before I begin to guide them on how to identify and analyze literary texts. During my previous teaching experiences, I realized that many students who are in the ultimate class (SS3) do not have a proper understanding of the fundamentals and it is always evident in their academic performances.
I am one of those few passionate tutors who takes time to repair foundational knowledge acquisition problems before building more bricks of knowledge on the learner.
