Experienced English Language Tutor
I enjoy helping my students improve their written and oral language skills and am gentle and encouraging of all students effort. I offer a high level of skill when it comes to writing.I find that patience and attentive listening are key skills as a tutor in enabling understanding and instilling a positive work ethic in young people. I am also alert to the fact that current examination assessment objectives demand specific techniques and demonstrations of skill from candidates and therefore that a coherent understanding of these specific exam techniques can be crucial to securing the highest grade.
Prepclass Tutor Since: February 2017
My name is Abiola, I am a Second Class Upper Division graduate of Mass Communication from the University of Lagos. I am a highly motivated and experienced Tutor with a strong background in providing professional tutoring services to Primary School Students with diverse backgrounds in Mathematics, English and General Studies.
My strong desire to help students achieve their goals has gone a long way in my providing high-quality services.
I have up to seven(7) years in the area of imparting knowledge. Additionally, I possess a positive attitude and a passion for assisting struggling learners.
It is my fundamental belief that making lessons interesting for my students is crucial in effective teaching. This is especially so for mathematics, where a huge amount of learning takes place while students are doing unassisted exercises. Through my encouraging and animated approach to tutorials, I aim to instil a passion in my students, so that they will respond to such exercises with enthusiasm and confidence.
I feel that the needs of every student is unique and that one-on-one tutoring offers the ideal environment to adapt to individual students' learning styles.

For me, the most important part of tutoring is building confidence, wherever the student is starting from. I like to get a good understanding of a student's strengths, and where there is room for improvement, encouraging the strengths whilst addressing the aspects that need working on. Sometimes that can be about going over a topic afresh, or other times just practising a skill, such as solving an equation. Where students are preparing for exams, I include some exam questions, to maintain technique. Lastly, I like to find out what a student finds stimulating about a subject, and give some time to nurturing that interest, as enjoyment makes hard work easier.
