Upper Primary English Tutor
Home tutor in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos
I teach English language 3-4 times a week. I prepare course works, tests and classroom activities which are designed to nurture the pupils' oral and written communication and comprehension skills; critical thinking and problem solving skills. I adopt flexibility in my teaching styles to serve as a measure in meeting the needs of each pupil. I facilitate a warm, adaptive, motivating, practical, competitive and a visually and research-based learning environment to help pupils think outside the norms of a typical learning/classroom situation and strive for academic excellence.
Being a resourceful, hardworking and goal-oriented professional, I have been able to tutor systematically, pupils with great reading challenges which has yielded positive results. I have a good record of simplifying topics while teaching and also encouraging pupils to state definitions of topics in English language in their own words, with the inclusion of keywords of the topic(s). I strive to build the self-esteem of pupils as regards to their academics. I believe that when a pupil's self-esteem is healthy, no academic challenge will be insurmountable.
