Home tutor in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos
I aim to quickly build a supportive and reassuring relationship between tutor and student. I use a variety of teaching methods to reflect various learning styles. I like to set challenging, thought-provoking tasks and always aim to make the student as confident as possible in their studies. I always ensure they have an explicit and thorough understanding of how their work will be assessed in examinations.
Levels Taught: Lower Primary, Upper Primary, Junior Secondary
My experience teaching across different curriculum has widened my understanding of progression in subjects for lower grade such as Mathematics, English Language, sciences and general knowledge. Basic science, Biology and Agricultural science for higher grades.
My present working environment have given me the opportunity to develop valuable experience, such as planning alone and team planning, and developing a wide range of assessment opportunities. I have gained skills in building effective and constructive relationships with children in difficult socio/economic conditions. I strongly encourages children to express their ideas and suggestions as I believe it is extremely important for them to have control over their learning. It is important to create an atmosphere which encourages children to ask questions and I believe children learn best through first-hand experiences and stimulating environments, including the appropriate use of the outside environment. At the start of each topic, I ask open-ended questions to allow me to gauge what they already know, enabling me to plan the areas of learning to be developed. I regularly evaluate lessons to analyse improvement, progress and achievement. Reflection on lesson plans and observations help to identify misconceptions and allow me to adapt my teaching strategies and plans for future lessons. As a result, I have become more aware of the importance of observation and the role it has in gaining greater understanding of children’s learning and behaviour. During lessons I ensure that my plans contain activities which cater for all learning styles. I plan my teaching to individuals’ learning needs, taking into account special needs, cultural backgrounds and emotional considerations. I would be an asset to your child development.
As a highly motivated, skilled and enthusiastic individual, I feel that I would bring with me a positive attitude, new ideas and the enthusiasm to benefit the child.
