Phonics instruction teaches the connection between word sounds and written letters. It’s a key part of learning to read. But phonics instruction also teaches spelling patterns. As a phonics teacher, I ensure I focus on the basics including rules for vowels, consonants, and blends along with practice pages.
My name is Abimbola, I am a graduate of English and Literary Studies from the University of Lagos. I am a self-motivated and result-driven teacher with a passion for education. I thoroughly enjoy working with children and I encourage creative expression. I teach students English Language, Mathematics and Literacy.
The outstanding skills I have acquired and the ability to work well with people has equipped me with the optimism and motivation needed to withstand challenges I've faced in the course of teaching. I have produced tremendous results in my years of teaching and this has earned me lots of recommendation.
I ensure my students gain a comprehensive understanding of how to answer examination questions and also emphasize the importance of being confident, calm and capable under exam and tests conditions.
