How I teach IELTS is I start by helping my students with a practice exam,This demonstrates the structure, timing implication and the serious nature of study that they need to undertake until the time of their exam.
The IELTS test is broken down into four parts: reading, speaking, listening and writing. While I teach all aspects of the test, I focus on the weak areas of my students and provide them with extra activities.
I then structure the teaching because often times, the questions are similar and even though they increase in level of difficulty throughout, they can all be written to a structure. I ensure that students include all the necessary information in an essay, such as thesis statement, topic sentences, supporting ideas, well-constructed paragraphs and a conclusion.
My name is Shedrach and I am a graduate of Finance from the University of Lagos. My goal in teaching is to foster the acquisition of a base of concepts and learning skills to facilitate further learning and thinking. In all of my courses, I guide students in the evaluation of evidence, critical thinking, argument development, verbal and written expression and the application of general principles. I have 8 years of productive experience working as a private tutor in the areas of Economics, Commerce, Business Studies, Social Studies, Marketing, Sales, Credit management, Mortgage Finance and Entrepreneurship Management . I live in Lagos where I have been able to successfully tutor over 3000 students in the course of 8 years, to pass various exams like WASSCE, GCE, NECO, GRE, TOEFL and other Undergraduates/Professional exams.
My rare skills of imparting knowledge in a fun, stress-free way with lots of illustrations and practical examples remains my major strength as my students remain highly motivated, and always have an unforgettable experience.
