Home tutor in Bariga, Lagos
Having worked with children, I have come to notice a common trend: often, the basic knowledge of how to answer a question or solve a problem is present, but they lack the skill-set to confidently solve the problem. I strive to therefore instill a sense of confidence in every chilld I come across.
Levels Taught: Lower Primary, Upper Primary, Junior Secondary
My teaching approach is based on two principles: engagement and method.
Engagement: Students learn more quickly and energetically if they are interested in the topic or skill that we are trying to master. Therefore I assess each student not only on their academic abilities but also their motivations and personality and adapt my lessons accordingly. This drives my students to learn during our time together and long after our lessons have finished.
Method: All subjects and skills 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 challenging subjects and skills.
Class Teacher and Subject Teacher (ICT)Sep 2015 - Present
River Oak School
I teach Key Stage 1 pupils (Year 1 and 2). I create my lesson plan on a weekly basis and I create it in accordance with the school's approved curriculum. I make sure classes are interesting and fun at the same time constructive so we achieve our desired aim at the end of the term. I liaise with other teachers and parents to ensure we effectively harness the potentials of these children. I also teach Information Communication Technology, I teach them the theory and practical aspect. I teach them how to do some of their home work with the aid/help of a computer.
