English Language Tutor
I am a passionate teacher with a particular interest in the English Language which often proves itself difficult for learners of the language. Over the years, I have gathered experience teaching this subject and it has equipped me not only with the technical know-how, but also the expertise to observe the peculiar needs of each tutee and work with them to improve the area where I observe them to be deficient.
My personal tutoring philosophy hinges on active learning. To this end, I aim to guide students in reaching solutions themselves rather than spoon-feeding them answers and ideas.
In my experience, this results in more profound understanding and far greater long-term learning and is well worth the initial extra effort in order to establish a solid fundamental grasp of the topic at hand.
This also allows for specific areas of difficulty to come to light so that they can be targeted directly in highly-tailored tutoring sessions which take the student’s individual learning style and goals into account.
No two students are the same, and personalizing my tutoring approach accordingly proves to be far more successful and rewarding.
I also acquired my first and second degrees with a second class upper division (2.1) in English Literary Studies and English Language respectively.

I teach English Language to students in the senior secondary section. English Language comprises of different aspects. These aspects include: Reading, Comprehension, Creative/Essay Writing, Spelling, Phonics, Diction, Elocution, Lexis ad Structure and Literature. I endeavour to include all of this in my teaching process so my students are thoroughly grounded in the subject as it's our major language of communication in Nigeria. I teach my students with the aid of a lesson plan which I create in accordance with the school's approved curriculum. I make of materials made available to me by the school and materials I gather from my personal research. I am currently preparing the senior class for their SSCE examinations. I make use of past questions to revise and basically have knowledge of the way external examination questions are set.
