Creative English Language Tutor
I focus on both on getting results and identifying and correcting any issues that might be holding a student back from reaching his or her full potential. I am patient and understanding of all the issues facing students preparing for a test or struggling with English at school or at work.
Prepclass Tutor Since: March 2016
My name is Kenneth, I have a Master's degree and a BA in English and Literary Studies from the University of Lagos and Olabisi Onabanjo University respectively. I am a creative and vibrant man who loves teaching and is passionate about it. I speak fluent English and I have a great influence on children. I am diligent, firm and result oriented. My goal in life is to see that i help everyone I come in contact with to fulfill their God giving potentials.
I have worked with and been taught by some absolutely outstanding teachers; I emulate them by combining my passion for the subject with an approach tailored to what each tutee needs. I think it's important that a tutee maintains and builds confidence in each area of learning, and I think with the right encouragement and guidance, a student's performance can be dramatically transformed.
I often emphasise the key skills of argument construction and communication throughout my work, and I thoroughly cover syllabus material and exam technique, providing stimulating lessons which are perfect exam preparation.
The most important part of tutoring is building a solid relationship with the student, such that I can work out exactly what they need from the lessons, and how best to deliver it to them. My detailed knowledge in English Language, when combined with the relationship I build with the student, allows me to go into details beyond the syllabus if I can tell that the student is wanting more or needs to be pushed. But, I can also recognise when a student is struggling with a particular concept and then approach it from a new angle to help their understanding.

In my initial tutoring sessions, I like to see what assignments my students are currently working on and observe their approach to learning. From there, I formulate a plan with the students including identifying areas for improvement, and setting goals. For test prep, I assess ability with a practice test, and then formulate a lesson from there.
