Alvan Ikoku College of Education, Imo State, Nigeria (English Education)
Trinity International University, Deerfield, IL (Master's)
My college background is in English, with a minor in Education and Social Studies. I have a Masters of Arts in Religion degree from graduate school. I attended one of the best colleges that have raised the brightest and best teachers in my country, Nigeria. I have also taught students in high school who passed with flying colors in their external examinations. I am confident therefore in what I do, and know I can help students through tutoring, so that they can achieve their goal in whichever field their endeavor lies.
Being also one that was tutored in her youth and tutored others, including my own children, I have come to appreciate the work of tutoring in the life of a student. Apart from the desire to do well in school and pass his exams, tutoring can help a student acquire discipline and commitment in his studies and build greater confidence to even study more. Therefore, he may be confronted from time to time with homework, quizzes and tests. Tutoring is another great way of helping students overcome the fear of these methods of evaluation.
My different cultural background is one that has helped in the area of patience and appreciation of a student's need for understanding and direction. I also understand that such students will need to carry out their learning in a friendly atmosphere. I do, however, encourage studies that are carried out in an environment of discipline and orderliness so that we all can achieve excellence in that which we seek or do.
I have a comfortable space in my home in Moreno Valley, to tutor, but will be pleased to drive to your home or a public place, like the Library, to work with you. I will be glad to reschedule our appointments and make up classes, therefore I will ask to be given a 24 hour notice prior to any cancellation.
I wish you success in all your endeavors and look forward to working with you towards this achievement. My college background is in English, with a minor in Education and Social Studies. I have a Masters of Arts in Religion degree from graduate school. I attended
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am qualified to teach in this area because my Master's degree is in Religion with emphasis on Christian Religion, which is based on the Bible.
