English Language Tutor
Proficient English Language Teacher
English Language is like the major means of communication around the world. It is highly important we teach children how to speak and write it. By reason of this, I will imbibe the various aspects of English Language into my process. These aspects include: Grammar, Lexis and Structure, Reading, Spelling, Creative Writing, etc.
My name is Adeyinka, I am a qualified teacher who is committed to the skills and knowledge of all students and can easily adapt my approach for different ages.
My aim in teaching is to help my students facilitate their ability to find solutions, get results and understand topics in a better way. I believe learning is important for students, not only to pass their exams and gain qualifications, but also for personal development and career choices/adaptability.
I try to be supportive and constructive when teaching, offering my students well prepared and structured sessions that are engaging, fun and productive. I work meticulously to ensure that the required skills are taught in an effective and memorable way, which will, in turn, make the student better at the subject that is being taught.
My approach to tutoring is student-driven and question-based. 'Student-driven' means that each lesson is tailored to their own needs and concerns. We tackle the topics that they find most challenging and build confidence from there. 'Question-based' means that I always keep my students engaged and on their toes. They are an active participant in the lesson and enjoy rising to the challenge.

I manage the Marketing arm as well as the day-to-day running of the school along side my partner. I carry out regular assessment and evaluation on all staff both academic and non-academic to ensure they are performing up to standard. I carry out periodic assessments of their lesson plans to make sure it is in line with the Ministry of Education's approved curriculum. I attend regular training and workshops on how to best manage a school, and also facilitate training for the members of staff. I liaise with parents and other members of staff on how best to effectively harness the performance of children and improve their grades.
