Verbal Reasoning Tutor
An excellent verbal reasoning teacher
I am a big believer in providing students with the best grounding and materials possible so that even when they aren't with me in sessions there will be the capacity for them to develop and study further.
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 all my students performing excellently.
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.
