English Language Tutor
An experienced teacher
My main aim with my lessons is to tackle what a student finds the most difficult and where most help is needed, so that the most improvement can be made. But at the same time I am also friendly and enthusiastic, and would ensure each lesson remains enjoyable and interesting as I recognize this is also vital for improvement.
With more than eight years of teaching students in schools,private tutorials/ centres and also as a private home tutor, I have been able to successfully mentor students and pupils to gets good grades in their external and internal examinations.some of them are graduates already and some on scholarship abroad my major skill is the ability to detect the challenges encountered by the students and help them to work on it.
My approach to tutoring varies hugely depending on the child I am tutoring. However I think something which unifies it across the range of ages and abilities is that I always try to break down what seem like huge, daunting subjects or assignments into smaller, manageable, non-scary, fun tasks. I work closely with each child to determine the ways in which they learn best, their interests, strengths and weaknesses, and feed this back into my tutoring methods, creating a tailor-made learning experience.
My methods are, of course, also informed by a thorough understanding of assessment requirements and criteria both for school entrance examinations and public examinations. I
believe that a positive and confident attitude towards the academic subject being studied can be hugely beneficial in terms of results, and I try to engender this by providing a supportive yet challenging relationship and environment for study. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring each of the subjects I teach, and hope that I can transmit my enthusiasm and energy to my pupils.
