Home tutor in Ikeja, Lagos
My sessions are built towards a student led structure, with the pupil picking their weaknesses to explore but begin with a more supported tutorial with discussions about texts lead by me so that they never feel too intimidated. Eventually, I will become less of a guidance and more of a challenger to their ideas in order to help them become independent in their thinking.
Levels Taught: Nursery, Lower Primary, Upper Primary
Prepclass Tutor Since: May 2017
As a teacher, I believe it is imperative to set clear goals with each individual tutee and over the course of the lessons, achieve these goals in a direct and rewarding manner.
The methods used to reach these set incentives will change according to the situation and needs of the student.
However, there are some central principles with my approach to tutoring that do not change.
I seek to inspire confidence and motivation by drawing out enthusiasms of the subject to ensure on-going interest in the lessons.
I also focus on building strong and trustworthy relationships with the students which in turn make for positive and successful lessons.
In my lessons, I aim to build an engaging, positive and creative atmosphere in which children can flourish.
For me, the importance of teaching is to allow children to access all areas of learning in a way that they enjoy, enabling them to gain a love for learning that will hopefully continue throughout their education.
I believe that teaching is about the individual and discovering how each child learns and what helps them. I have patience, I am creative and to me there is no such thing as a silly question!
