Home tutor in Alimosho, Lagos
Certified English Language Professional
Many of my past students have felt enormous pressure from teachers, exams and league tables, and I aim to create a safe environment for them to practice, experiment and make mistakes - for I honestly believe that it is only by making mistakes that we can learn from them and improve.
I bring my own genuine love of English Languages to each lesson, and aim to imbue my students with my passion and enthusiasm.

The greatest sign of success for a teacher… is to be able to say, ‘The children are now working as if I did not exist'. I studied English/ Linguistics from the University of Uyo.
I have an active and progressive teaching experience of four years.
I have tutored about 80 students on English Language and over the years, my students have been performing excellently both in internal and external exams due to the wide range of exposure I give to them.
I maintain a good relationship with my students, knowing their likes and dislikes helps me to understand their learning style better and this in turn helps me change my approach where necessary and meet their academic needs.
My knowledge of Psycholinguistics helps me proffer a language therapy to my students who may have language problems which always come out which a positive result. I am also able to prepare students for IELTS, SAT and GMAT(English)
