Diligent and knowledgeable Phonics tutor
I have a very tailored approach to tutoring and my methods vary according to the pupil in question. For me, the value of one-to-one tutoring is it’s capacity to cater precisely to the needs and learning style of that particular student and I like to take some time when we begin, to ascertain exactly what teaching methods will be best suited. Whatever the circumstances, I take a holistic approach to my role as tutor and aim to help my students not only learn the curriculum or prepare for an entrance exam but also to become confident, independent learners, able to organise their work, put together revision timetables and develop methods to aid understanding and retention.
I'm a graduate of sociology and psychology from Delta State University. I hold a post graduate degree in Education and I am a trained Montessori Directress from the North American Montessori Centre, Canada .
I have 10 years teaching experience both in the primary and nursery session. I'm currently a nursery teacher in one of the benchmark schools in Nigeria .My strength lies in the ability to help struggling children learn to read.
My teaching technique has always been child centred, focusing on the weaknesses of the child and working hard to make those weaknesses become strengths. Every student has different ways of assimilating and I am flexible enough to fit every child's learning process to bring out the best in them.

I currently hold the post of a class teacher to 3-5year olds. I am currently the technology integration specialist in my school because of my vast knowledge in IT. I always make sure the class learning environment is serene and calm even though we're having fun while learning. I prepare detailed interesting lessons and implement these lessons in a creative way that captivates the minds of my students.

I prepare my lessons based on what the students are learning in school, these lessons are also prepared based on the need of the students. I give classwork and homework to test how much the student takes in after every session and this also helps me note different areas that still need to be worked on. I work on exam questions and treat the ways to handle certain kind of questions .
