Home tutor in Municipal Area Council, Abuja
I am an experienced, enthusiastic and energetic teacher of English.
I am friendly, approachable, dedicated and well-prepared. I like to use a variety of approaches in my lessons, always keeping things active and interesting. I am also very flexible and willing to meet students where they are. I support students with clear and precise feedback both orally and in writing. I'm also capable of handling both the Nigerian and British Curriculum.
Levels Taught: Lower Primary, Upper Primary, Junior Secondary
Teaches students: Ages 4 -13
Prepclass Tutor Since: June 2017
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.

I prepare my lesson plan and notes before every class. I teach and explain clearly to my pupils, then give assignments to help in ascertaining their level of understanding the topic taught. I also man the school library, taking note of books that come in and goes out of the library . I also supervise students activities in the library.
