British Common Entrance English Tutor
Home tutor in Eti Osa, Lagos
I have been a tutor with Prepcless since late 2015 preparing pupils for common entrance examinations. I have prepared many pupils for such entrance examinations, one of who did not only pass the common entrance but also got a scholarship from the same school. I have also prepared other pupils who are now in prestigious International Secondary schools in the Lekki axis.
Teaching the rules of English Grammar, reading and comprehension skills have been areas that I have come to love and teach. These core areas have enable me to be successful when teaching primary school pupils. Other attributes that have been of tremendous help to me is patience and believing in the learners.
I have come to know and accept that pupils have different levels of assimilating concepts, so employing differentiation has made such impact of knowledge easier and enjoyable. As an experienced tutor, learners gain more when learning with them is facilitated I.e. giving them more room in the learning process while the tutor shapes the flow of the learning process through questionings and vivid explanations with appropriate learning aids.

Upper Primary Subject Teacher
Sep 2016 - Sep 2018
Satrop Nursery & Primary School
As an upper primary school teacher, I modelled the lives of the learners not only in the cognitive domain of learning but also in the affective & psychomotor aspects. Served as a good role model to the pupils. I also strengthened their logical reasoning skills in quantitative subjects like Numeracy & Quantitative reasoning. I developed easier ways on how to tackled Arithmetic processes such as the dreaded long division methods. It was quite an interesting experience and it brought out the best in me, although with few challenges, I was able to established my core as a Common Entrance Mathematics Specialist.
