The choice and use of words and phrases in speech or writing is what is known as diction.
I am an educator with about 5 years teaching experience. I have a vast knowledge of the Nigerian, American and British curricula. I have penchant for teaching the English Language with peculiarities in Phonics/diction, Creative Writing, Grammar and Literature.
I have also prepared students for Junior and Senior WAEC, GCE, Checkpoint, IELTS and SAT with a 90% pass rate.
My attention to engagement and structured progress provides struggling students with the tools and attitude to help lift their grades, and assists well-performing students in discovering that extra flair and enjoyment that can distinguish their work at the highest level.
I firmly believe that no subject, however daunting, is too difficult for a student. My job and favorite activity is to find that relatable example or way of looking at a topic that can unlock a complex topic for a learner.
I spend a lot of time asking questions to make sure the students truly understand the concepts and then get them to teach it back to me as a way of clarifying their understanding. I try to come up with creative ways to learn and enforce concepts that are applicable to the real world.
I am also a big advocate in making sure students are equipped with all the tools to learn that will benefit them outside of our sessions , such as organisation and effective study techniques
