Result- Oriented Handwriting Teacher

Improving children's penmanship, legibility, pencil grasp, and working on problem areas are all important things that need to be addressed—especially in the digital age when most of our written communication is done through texting on mobile devices or typing on a keyboard. Voice recognition software has even evolved to the point that commands can now be verbal—making even keystrokes obsolete!

Visual-motor skills, such as eye-hand coordination, are associated with academic achievement. Scientists have found that developing fine motor skills in early childhood can predict not only writing success, but better performance in reading and math in elementary school.

Children who can write quickly and legibly are more likely to demonstrate skills in expressing their thoughts through the written word. When kids struggle to write neatly and efficiently, they are often accused of being lazy, and this may affect their behavior and self-esteem.

Prepclass Tutor Since: February 2016

I am a very passionate teacher, with an excellent track record in one-on-one teaching. I have teaching/tutoring experiences in Nigeria and the UK. I am very patient with kids and understand them. My methods are unique and very effective. I assure you of positive results in your child/children in two weeks.

I am passionate about imparting knowledge. I enjoy teaching and it gives me great pleasure to be one of those helping to chart a career path for the learners l handle from time to time. I am particularly always interested in discovering the weaknesses in learners and adopting peculiar strategies to ensure a progressively improved performance.

My partnership with Prepclass Tutors has exposed me to a lot of training, skills, manpower development, and instructional know-how to be better at what l do. I am committed to meeting whatever academic set goals l am given and to deliver according to expectations. I do not compromise on standards.

With the experience I have gained from previous work places, I believe perfection in learning can be achieved if a child's ability to assimilate is discovered using the right method to impart knowledge. I believe in delivering quality service to produce excellence and I try to build a good relationship with my students as this allows them to communicate more openly by expressing their concerns which creates a more suitable environment for learning.

I will ensure there is effective use of discussion and analysis between myself and my students in order to successfully understand new concepts or just revise learnt material effectively. 

My goal is to inspire, motivate and challenge my students to discover their purpose and strive along side my students to achieve them.
