Experienced Phonics Tutor

I think the most important quality in any tutor is patience. My first step is to perform an assessment of the student; this, along with a comparison of the student's academic goals, forms the basis of our lesson plan. I listen closely to the family's goals in order to tailor my approach specifically to that student.

I studied International Studies and Diplomacy from the University of Benin, Nigeria I am a strategist fueled by the fire of compassion. This disposition, and the fact that I have been trained in emotional intelligence remains for me a motivation as a teacher. 

I have extensive experience as an English and literature teacher. And presently a volunteer instructor at the Lovelyn Clair Mentoring Academy in Lagos. As an Emotional Intelligence Instructor I have been able to foster a classroom environment conducive for learning and improve students' overall character and self confidence, promoting excellent Tutor/Student interaction.

I have helped school-age pupils to develop both spoken and written competence in English language. I have over five years experience as a classroom teacher. 

I have taught students preparing for external exams such as WAEC, NECO and JAMB and can proudly say that I have had a 100% success rate in this. I have delivered top notch lessons and my students have improved on spoken English, Creative Writing, have boosted their confidence in their ability to speak publicly.
