Competent Phonics Teacher
Phonics is primarily about sounds and is one of the cues or sources of information a reader uses to gain meaning from print. Along with meaning and the structure of language, a student uses the knowledge of letters or combinations of letters and sounds (phonics) to read.
Phonics is a way of teaching children to read skillfully. I ensure I teach them how to recognize the sounds that each individual letter makes, identify the sounds that different combinations of letters make – such as ‘sh’ or ‘oo’; and
blend those sounds together from left to right to make a word.
Children can then use this knowledge to ‘decode’ new words that they see or hear. This is the first important step to learning to read.
I am a person passionate about learning. I enjoy seeing students who have challenges exceeding their dreams and getting beyond limitations set on them by society and themselves. I am patient with those who have academic troubles and work hard to bring out the best in them. I assist those who may not be interested in learning and design teaching methods that meets their needs. I enjoy teaching and find my joy in students excellence.
The essential aspect of my tutoring is to build and maintain confidence in every area of learning , as I believe that there is nothing that someone cannot do at any level if they believe they can.
I have embraced 'learning' as a process to be developed, understood and enjoyed and I ensure that my tuition is designed not just to bolster my tutees' techniques and understanding, but also to increase their confidence, interest, and ability to enjoy the subject. Observing my tutees' success and their growth in confidence makes me very happy.
