Pre-Primary & Lower Primary Tutor
Home tutor in Ikoyi -Obalende, Lagos
I have taught in a Primary school as a Primary 1 class teacher. I have also taught about 10 elementary pupils in private home lessons. Hence, I have taken time to master what their elementary-level subjects demand, especially Numeracy, Literacy, Phonic, Reading skills and Handwriting, and how important it is to their foundation education.
For children, learning should be fun and not scary. I make my classes fun, effective, and interesting!
On Numeracy, I teach my students the rudiments of basic operations (Addition, Subtraction, multiplication, Division), Number bonds, Geometry etc. I teach them with everyday examples and relatable instances. Also make use of instructional materials like the counting pebbles, where necessary. I patiently take it step by step. On Phonics, I teach my students how to know the pronunciation sounds for different vowels and consonants. I use different words to give examples and equally indicate exceptions where they exist. I make them say after me, as I pronounce these words making sure the right sound and stress pattern is used.
Children learn better with pictorial illustrations. I have handled little children on reading, and even elementary pupils with reading deficiencies. There are step by step approaches to getting a child to learn and perfect the act of reading. Some of the these approaches include the use of pictures with word translations, learning the sound of letters, learning how to pronounce two letters word, three letters words etc. Again, the use of flash cards and such books like Queen Primer do help a lot.

I am a graduate of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. I live in Lagos.
I have over 4 years of teaching experience, which include teaching in schools and as a private tutor. I have taught Physics and Mathematics in Secondary Schools. On private lesson arrangement, I have also tutored many secondary school students on Sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics), including those preparing for external examination.
I have also taugh in a Primary School(Hillrange School Enugu, a sister school of Whitesands School, Lekki) for one year. And I have been giving private lessons to children in elementary classes.
My unique method of imparting knowledge in my students makes them develop a rare yearning for learning and to have excellence as a culture, during and even after my contact with them. I bring realistic approach to learning. I make learning fun and interesting.
