English Grammar Tutor
Some folks have wrongly assumed that Grammar refers to the complex words used in any literary or non literary writing, or in a conversation, This erroneous assumption only limits its true definition. Grammar embraces Phonetics, Phonology, Morphology, Semantics, Syntax and Stylistics. An understanding of these various levels of Grammar is a step towards mastery of the English Language.
Having majored in Linguistics, I have not only acquired the in depth knowledge required to adequately describe the English language, I have had years of practice, and like the saying goes, 'Practice makes for perfection.'
I have prepared a good number of students for national and international examinations ranging from WAEC (Junior and Senior levels) to UTME, CHECKPOINT, IGCSE (Second Language), SAT Reading & Writing, TOEFL, IELTS and many other English related examinations.
Together, my students and I have achieved many success stories from bagging A's to cinching a 7.0 band score.
I encourage students to be goal-oriented and maintain enthusiasm and motivation by establishing clear attainable milestones, which strike a balance between challenging them and also developing confidence. Most importantly, I think it is essential that the students enjoy their sessions and that the subject matter is made relevant and relatable. I consider myself to be very positive, patient and approachable and I strive to cultivate a safe environment in which students feel comfortable to express their difficulties and explore diverse methods to enhance learning and achieve their desired aims.
