Exceptional Literacy Tutor
Literacy is critical to help young children be ready for school by working with them to develop early literacy and learning skills. Because strong reading skills form the basis for learning in all subjects, it is important to identify those who struggle with reading as early as possible so we can begin to help such child.
My name is Kikelomo, I am enthusiastic, focused, committed and highly passionate about teaching and education in general.
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 subjects are taught in an effective and memorable way, which will, in turn, make the student better at the subject.
With experience gained from previous work places, I believe perfection in learning can be achieved if a child's ability to assimilate is discovered using the right method to impart knowledge. I believe in delivering quality service to produce excellence and I try to build a good relationship with my students as this allows them to communicate more openly by expressing their concerns which creates a more suitable environment for learning
I will ensure there is effective use of discussion and analysis between myself and my students in order to successfully understand new concepts or just revise learnt material effectively.
My goal is to inspire, motivate and challenge my students to discover their purpose and strive along side my students to achieve them.
