About Frances


Bio

As a Nigerian who moved to the US, I am passionate about higher education, and helping others through their individual journeys. The most frequent compliment I receive from strangers is how articulate I am. I moved from Nigeria with a heavy English accent that Americans found challenging to fully understand.

As a Nigerian who moved to the US, I am passionate about higher education, and helping others through their individual journeys. The most frequent compliment I receive from strangers is how articulate I am. I moved from Nigeria with a heavy English accent that Americans found challenging to fully understand. After much work, my pronunciation is noticed frequently. Another strength I acquired is the ability to engage an audience when giving presentations, or addressing a group of people. I can teach you how to speak very good articulated English, and win a crowd while doing it.

I spent two months last summer teaching SAT, TOEFL and GRE prep courses to students. 100% of my scholars raised their testing scores, and 80% secured admission into top US colleges. I have a BA in Psychology from Baylor University and Master's in Public Administration from the University of Washington. I worked for 6 years before returning to pursue my Master's in education and a non-profit organization helping women reintegrate back into society post substance abuse.

Through my experience in working with women and at-risk children, I understand that each person is different. This year I was a teaching assistant at the University of Washington for a class on 'Teaching and learning theories in a changing world' where we took an education-psychological approach to how people learn. I am very equipped to tailor how I teach to individuals, because I understand that everyone has a different starting point.

I look forward to working with you.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

In high school I competed in speech and debate tournaments for four years. During this time, I mastered the art of presentation to an audience, both in humorous and dramatic pieces. In my more recent years in graduate school, I took many courses that required both informal classroom discussions and formal presentations with sixty others. On three occasions, I have spoken in front of an audience of up to three thousand people. I know how to engage the audience, both formally and informally

History

Bible Studies

Bible Studies

I have studied the Bible both on my own and in a classroom setting. I took two courses in college which delved into the Hebrew and Greek translations. During my years of running a women's recovery home, I led word studies on the Bible repetitively. My filter as a Christian gives me insight into the word of God.

Soccer

I grew up in Nigeria playing soccer nearly everyday. My father played for the national team, so I was constantly surrounded by friends who also played soccer. In high school I joined the team and became a star forward. I also played casually with friends in college, and post college, I joined a women's league, and was once again one of the more valuable players.

Outstanding!

Frances is an outstanding public speaking tutor. She is a very modest lady and her explanations are articulate. Also she gives me a variety of international perspective. I really recommend you share your time with her.
