English Language Tutor
Experienced English Tutor
Over the years I have taught English language, i always try to know the strengths and weaknesses of my students first. Then i work together with the student on how to improve the weaknesses and consolidate the strengths. This includes:
Working on essay structures by laying out simple formats that allow a point to be made clearly and effectively. Then,
Working on creative writing by building confidence that their story is worth telling.
I also have a whole program of work that involves making sure the student's creative writing skills, grammar and comprehension skills improves.
My name is Lukman, I am a graduate and a Master's degree holder of Mathematics from the University of Ilorin.
I have been teaching Primary School students successfully for over twelve (12) years and i have successfully prepared my students not just for internal examinations, but for external examinations too.
I have a personalised approach to my tutoring by developing a rapport with the student in order to gain an insight into their personal goals. This in turn helps me to identify any weakness as well as build on the student's strength.
Building self confidence and fostering the love for each subject is my overall aim. To do this, i endeavour to establish a close working relationship with each tutee based on trust and confidence that will facilitate their examination success as well as address their wider educational needs.
I have discovered that for tutoring to be successful, it must be an enjoyable experience both for the student and the teacher. That is why I always make learning fun for my students.

In preparation for each class, I first set out my goal for the class and how to go about achieving the goal. Then I assess the student's strength and weakness. I make the class interactive. I give guided examples then I give out a class work to evaluate how well the student has understood what I have taught. I make corrections where necessary, and then I summarize what has been taught. I give the students homework so that what has been taught is still fresh in their memory before the next class.
