About Akinniyi


Bio

My love for teaching comes from a life-long love of learning. As a Ph. D. holder I know that hard work and dedication to learning do pay off. I have been teaching at a University in Los Angeles County for the past fifteen years, and before that I tutored successfully with a leading SAT-preparation company. As such, I continue to enjoy the pleasure of assisting hundreds of students to realize their own potential, even as they see their grades and test scores steadily improve.

My love for teaching comes from a life-long love of learning. As a Ph. D. holder I know that hard work and dedication to learning do pay off. I have been teaching at a University in Los Angeles County for the past fifteen years, and before that I tutored successfully with a leading SAT-preparation company. As such, I continue to enjoy the pleasure of assisting hundreds of students to realize their own potential, even as they see their grades and test scores steadily improve.

I specialize in teaching English for success in school and on the SAT, ACT or GRE. I am the proud author of a book, entitled: Local Government in western Nigeria: Exemplary Institutional Change in Abeokuta, 1830-1952. Whether we are working on high school English or GRE vocabulary, a goal for each of my sessions is to challenge my students, while not overwhelming them. I assign stretch exercises after every lesson, and provide periodic assessment and progress reports.

I hold myself to the same superior standards that I expect of my students. Consequently, I often request feedback from my students, and never bill for a tutoring lesson that students or their parents are not completely satisfied with.

I am always flexible with time, and prefer to work on the week-ends, when we can have uninterrupted hours within which to concentrate on our tutoring lessons. I am willing to travel to a lesson site of my students' choosing, or I can secure a convenient location for studying, if that is preferred.

I look forward to hearing from you soon, and helping you achieve success in your studies. All the very best!

My educational background is such that I have an earned doctorate, which makes me qualified to teach English to non-speakers of English. I currently teach at the university level, and consequently, have to be proficient in written and oral communication. Lastly, I can empathize with my prospective students because I had to learn English as a second language.
