Diction refers to the style of enunciation in speaking or writing. Over the years as a language tutor, I have realized how important the issue of diction is to us as individuals. It is highly important we begin o incorporate it in the curriculum of children from an early stage so as they develop, it becomes a part of them. When they are grown and have issues with the way they speak, it can result in several issues like reduced self esteem where they begin to feel ashamed to talk among their peers because of the way they speak.
I am child- friendly with a good sense of humor that helps ease and relax pupils in order to create a type of relationship that makes our interaction cooperative.
I taught at Cedar Oak School as a preschool/primary teacher and a Reading Defaults Teacher from 2014-2017. I also worked as an English/Diction teacher at Heirs Of Promise School in 2017.
I possess teaching skills that enables pupils with inadequate reading and problem solving skills to properly interpret and comprehend through one on one interaction that goes beyond text book exercises.I was awarded for public speaking and reading skills at Meadow Hall Public Speaking Training in 2016.
I apply different teaching concepts until desired goals are achieved. My aim is to support pupils and help them develop academic independence as well as sound critical thinking, emotional and psychological skills that are not limited to subject teachings.
I do not teach route learning technique except when necessary, in the case of multiplication tables; I strictly teach with concepts which help pupils to relate with their immediate environment at home.
