Reading helps children along the process of cognitive development. Cognitive development is the emergence of the ability to think and understand; it’s the construction of thought processes, including remembering, problem solving, and decision-making, from childhood through adolescence to adulthood. It also helps them with language acquisition and literacy skills. This is because reading to your children in the earliest months stimulates the part of the brain that allows them to understand the meaning of language and helps build key language, literacy and social skills.

Prepclass Tutor Since: March 2017

I incorporate all the required factors that makes learning conducive and interesting for students, as I try to make my tuition comprehensive for my students using various analogies as my teaching tools so that my students can clearly understand what is being taught to them.

I am enthusiastic about teaching and I aim to help my students develop and achieve their full potential in their studies.

One of the advantages of one-on-one tutoring is that lessons can be targeted to address the individual needs and abilities of the student. This can range from slowing their approach to Maths questions to avoid making easy mistakes, using everyday examples to demonstrate scientific processes, and working out imaginative ways to teach concepts students have particular difficulty with.

Experience

    I taught Biology to students in the senior secondary section, I did this with the aid of a detailed lesson plan. I prepared the SS3 class for their WASSCE, JAMB and NECO examinations. I coordinated practical classes ensuring they were thoroughly grounded in the subject as a whole so they not just taught the theory aspects. I made use of revision questions to give a glimpse into how external examination questions are set.

    At Ford Nursery and Primary School, I taught students in the primary section. I taught them with the aid of a detailed lesson plan. I taught them Mathematics, English Language, Science, Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning, Home Economics. I monitored their strengths and weaknesses by giving out periodic evaluations and assessments to my students to help me ascertain the level to which they were able to understand assimilate what was taught to them. I gave periodic feedback to the parents and school authorities on how the children were faring and also their performance.

    My strategy in tutoring is to make each subject interesting and important for my students. Igniting the interest to a subject is the first and crucial step in academic success. Breaking the complex concept into easy logical blocks, finding funny analogies and important connections with real life help my students achieve deep understanding of a subject. Telling my students a discovery story and letting them to "re-discover" the key concept is another powerful tool.

    Ms. Henrietta is an exceptional teacher, she takes her to break down concepts in her teaching process. I recommend her to any parent seeking for an exceptional performance in the academics of their children.
