Senior Secondary School English Tutor
Home tutor in Egbeda, Oyo
English Language Tutor with 3 years experience with a student pass rate of over 90%
I have taught English Language over the past three years and I have a high student success rate. I have a special likeness for oral English as it helps the students learn proper pronunciation and helps them to properly understand words and their meanings. English language being a core subject must be learnt from the rudimentary stage and must be refreshed periodically as the subjects is being updated frequently.
For example, it was correct to say birds of the same feather flock together, it has been updated to birds of a feather flock together. I also pay attention to commonly misused words, tautologies, wrong use of idioms etc and teach students to avoid them. Examples of the commonly used sentences are "reverse back, at all at all, etc". Reverse already indicate backward movement while at all already carries the message, there is absolutely no need for repetition. I also pay a lot of attention to the aspect of register as this broadens the information and knowledge base of the students.
