The importance of Reading to children cannot be overemphasized. It will help to improve the process of cognitive development. Cognitive development is the emergence of the ability to think and understand, it’s “the construction of thought processes, including remembering, problem solving, and decision-making, from childhood through adolescence to adulthood”. Reading will influence how the child perceives and thinks about his or her world through areas such as information processing, intelligence, reasoning, language development, and memory.
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.
