English Language Tutor
An excellent English Language Teacher
I find that patience and attentive listening are key skills as a tutor in enabling understanding and instilling a positive work ethic in young people. I am also alert to the fact that current examination assessment objectives demand specific techniques and demonstrations of skill from candidates and therefore that a coherent understanding of these specific exam techniques can be crucial to securing the highest grade.
I studied English Language from the University of Lagos and I have four years of experience teaching English Language and Literature-in-English.
My strong passion for teaching and learning enables me to motivate my students to meet high performance standards in and out of school.
I always find interesting ways to impart knowledge into my students and occasionally offer guidance and counseling services at no cost. The flexibility of my teaching method has always delivered the best results as 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
I welcome the focus on the individual learner that is a central feature of tutoring, and very much enjoy engaging in the lively dialogue and individualized feedback that enables tutees to grow in confidence as learners.
I bring enthusiasm and energy to my tutoring, thanks to my work as a school teacher my approach to tutoring is also informed, where relevant by a sound understanding of the assessment requirements for public examinations
