Home tutor in Municipal Area Council, Abuja
Well grounded in teaching this subject
My approach to tutoring is always to tackle fundamentals first, with the aim of developing confidence and basic skills. I have a friendly and approachable style to my teaching, as I feel a key aim of private tuition v.s. classroom teaching is a more relaxed environment in which the student should feel empowered to as many questions as they need and approach lessons as a discussion not a lecture.
Levels Taught: Nursery, Lower Primary, Upper Primary, Junior Secondary, Exams
I have over 10 years worth of experience as a full time teacher.
I have attended professional workshops and seminars such as Jolly Phonics, Grammar, 21st Century Teaching etc.
I welcome the focus on the individual learner that is a central feature of tutoring, and very much enjoy engaging in the lively dialogue and individualized feedback that enables tutees to grow in confidence as learners. I bring enthusiasm and energy to my tutoring.
I think the most important quality in any tutor is patience. My first step is to perform an assessment of the student; this, along with a comparison of the student's academic goals, forms the basis of our lesson plan. I listen closely to the family's goals in order to tailor my approach specifically to that student.
Thanks to my work as a school teacher, my approach to tutoring is also informed, where relevant, by a sound understanding of the assessment requirements for public examinations and school entrance examinations.
