Upper Primary English Tutor
Home tutor in Owan West, Edo
Assessment; Before working with a new pupil, I usually preform a skills assessment. This may involve a formal testing process provided along with the curriculum materials being used, or a more informal process. For example, I may have the student read passages, write a few paragraphs, or in the case of English as a second language, pupils speak with the tutor. The assessment helps me plan lessons that fits the pupil's needs. Throughout the tutoring process, I may plan additional assessments to track process.
Writing and grammar; Writing skills are a key to effective communication. Depending on the pupil's needs, prompting pupils to write compositions or essays -- or simply teaching the basics of sentence composition -- are major parts of my duties. Since the English language can be particularly difficult to master -- especially for pupils whose first language is not English -- I may spend a great deal of time teaching proper grammar.
Reading; I also help pupils to polish their reading skills. This can include helping pupils fully comprehend the content of written passages, or having pupils read aloud to help with oral communication skills.
Speaking; English as a second language students may come to a tutor simply to have someone with whom they can practice their speaking skills. Some students usually live in communities in which they don't interact with other English speakers -- or they're reticent about using their limited English in other social or work situations. When that's the case, my duties may is to converse with the student, and to correct him when he makes grammatical or pronunciation mistakes.
