Prepclass Tutor Since: January 2017
My name is Edith. I am a graduate of English and Literary Studies from Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State.
For over five (5) years, i have had a very wide range of teaching experience in English Language preparing Secondary School students for Internal and External Examinations like WAEC and NECO.
My style of teaching English Language is heavily dictated by my students. My first lesson is all about discovering what type of learners they are. Including their interests and goals. These conversations often holds the key to motivating them towards success.
I believe learning is always best done actively. I’ve personally never learned much by being talked at so that's not how I teach. I ask lots of questions and expect a good level of engagement during a session.
I also believe that at the heart of even the trickiest problems is a series of simple solutions. I aim to make those simple solutions clear and to help students to think clearly and effective for themselves.
Above all, learning doesn't happen very well if a student isn’t engaged. I’m good at helping my students become interested in what they're studying and, even if it takes a little while, it's more than worth it.

The Fundamentals High School
I plan lesson contents and deliver the lesson to the students. I test, grade and record their test performance and give extra lessons when the need arises. I motivate the students to improve their critical thinking skills as well as language skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing.

English Tutor Prepclass ng Ltd
English can be mastered with a methodical approach and consistent work. For this reason I plan individual lessons and programmes of study with clear short and long-term objectives. With these my students and I can track and celebrate our progress as we go, as well as identifying any areas that need extra work. This approach produces clear academic results and demystifies the challenges students face in English Language.
