British Upper Primary English Tutor
Home tutor in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos
I possess 3 years of experience in teaching, I teach English language as a subject, 3 to 4 times a week and 45-90 minutes, on each of the days the subject is taught. I source for contents (that are relatable to the pupils), when preparing my lesson notes. I provide pupils with worksheets for individual and group evaluations. I give feedback to pupils on their academic performances, to make sure that they are aware of the area(s) they need to work on. I also offer to assist with the area(s) they have challenges in (academically and emotionally).
I once fell out of love with English Language (because of the teaching methods I was taught with). Having recovered from that episode, I took a stance to teaching English language in a relatable and engaging way. This has proven to be effective, as pupils have warmed up to English Language as a subject.
When teaching, I lead the pupils from what they know to what they don't know. This sustains their curiosity and interest during the learning process. Thereafter, I encourage each pupil to share what they have learnt with the rest of the class.
