I believe in a creative approach to learning: engaging lessons, application and feedback is always key. My work with my pupils involve creating a program that suits my students needs, we map out goals and assess our goals every week. In addition, my knowledge of the British School system is an asset, as I am able to help pupils excel in their entrance exams and be prepared for the year ahead.
I love to read. when I am not working I write, listen to music or watch movies. I love a great conversation, a sumptuous meal and red wine. One of my favorite poems is Claude McKays - If we must die. I am open minded and a .proponent of continuous self improvement
I have prepared a good number of students for national and international examinations ranging from WAEC (Junior and Senior levels) to UTME, CHECKPOINT, IGCSE (Second Language), SAT Reading & Writing, TOEFL, IELTS and many other English related examinations.
Together, my students and I have achieved many success stories from bagging A's to cinching a 7.0 band score.
I encourage students to be goal-oriented and maintain enthusiasm and motivation by establishing clear attainable milestones, which strike a balance between challenging them and also developing confidence. Most importantly, I think it is essential that the students enjoy their sessions and that the subject matter is made relevant and relatable. I consider myself to be very positive, patient and approachable and I strive to cultivate a safe environment in which students feel comfortable to express their difficulties and explore diverse methods to enhance learning and achieve their desired aims.
Language is an art and I am a lover of art, a poet and short story writer.
I have a published piece titled- She is (Black). Every triumph brings a satisfaction that is only attainable when one pursues one's passion.
