Home tutor in Agege, Lagos
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. 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.
I have had experience with a huge range of different abilities and needs. I love the challenge of finding and understanding exactly how each child works and have a vast bank of tutoring resources and teaching aids to help each individual learn to the best of their ability. I consider myself patient and creative and always focus on helping each child build up their confidence and enjoyment in learning throughout my sessions.
I try and get to know the strengths and weaknesses of a student first. Then we will work together on how to improve the weaknesses and consolidate the strengths. This includes:
Working on essay structures - simple formats that allow a point to be made clearly and effectively
Working on creative writing - often building confidence that their story is worth telling, and the tools with which to do so.
