Summary

My name is Adebesin Ibraheem. I am an English educator, with two degrees in English (a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts), a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE), and sundry certifications (IGCSE, TKT, etc.) I have taught English for over 10 years to learners of varied age range (upper primary to A level). I am a meticulous teacher, with strict attention to quality and standard. I am versed in every aspect of English. I teach Creative Writing, Grammar, Oral English (Diction), Literature, Reading and Comprehension, Vocabulary and Spelling, with great flair and dexterity.
I have immense knowledge of the subject and I have always shown unwavering commitment towards advancing the knowledge of my learners. My style of teaching has been eclectic, a blend of an array of methodologies and I always structure my lessons in ways that challenge my students to think critically, communicate effectively, write creatively, investigate thoroughly, work collaboratively, etc.
At different times, I play the multi-faceted roles of a teacher – an instructor, a life coach, a confidant, a personality assessor, a surrogate parent, a charismatic mentor, an inspirer, etc. I create a very positive environment for every student to learn in and I use apt instructional aids and adopt stimulating activities, with relevant materials, to ensure students learn and comprehend well.
I am a published writer (of prose and poetry)
