Verbal Reasoning Tutor
Verbal Reasoning is the ability to understand and reason using words. This skill enables us to use our language skills in order to negotiate and explain within our environment. Think about our day to day lives as adults. We are constantly asked to explain our reasons for doing something.
For a young child, the verbal reasoning capacity can be tested by looking at their understanding of words and phrases, their ability to draw conclusions from incomplete sentences, their ability to identify an incorrect statement, or their ability to problem solve or provide an alternative idea when needed.
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.
