Why do you think engaging your tutoring service is preferable to my child’s school-teacher?

You are welcome! Engaging your child’s school-teacher for home / private tutoring is not that too bad but might not yield the best result considering the disadvantages below;

  • Too much familiarity can weaken the level of seriousness between your child and his/her school teacher to the extent of being nonchalant about homework given by the teacher;
  • The school teacher can be covered up by the child if fails to do what he/ she should do
  • Remember that the school teacher and the parents know each other, and he would make sure the child has a so called -“good result” by padding or manipulating marks; liaison with other teachers in school to help boost or jack up your child’s marks so that you will not complain of not teaching him/her well. Hence, it encourages deception and leads to mediocrity.
  • No proper monitoring in place; the school teacher is the supervisor of him/herself as far as the lesson is concerned.

Meanwhile, you stand the chance to benefit the pleasure of our tutors with the following advantages;

  • In the course of the lessons, you will have an eye-opener to prove the effectiveness (or otherwise) of that highly paid school you enroll your child. You will also know whether the problem is from your child or from his/her school.
  • Our tutors are under a result-driven Supervision; hence they give the best in ensuring successful academic performance for our tutees/ learners. Thus, we call this- “Success tracking”.
  • There are laid-down evaluation schemes to measure up learners’ responsiveness towards lessons several times till they are confirmed capable to sit for any forthcoming exam.
  • Proper recording of pupils/students’ performance and the tutors’ daily activities for future references and review is in place.
  • Drastic and dynamic teaching methodology to drive home good success.
  • We encourage feedbacks from parents, guardians and even from our tutees about the on-going lessons, and make sure necessary re-modifications are put in place.
  • Career guide, professional advice, motivations and many more, to enhance right mind-set towards excellent performance of learners are given as freebies.
  • Quick discovery of learners’ weak points and the necessary fortification as we work on weak areas till we gain good responses.
  • Recommendation of right tutoring packages for our learners.
  • We provide functional instructional and resource materials.
  • We also put our clients/ learners’ conveniences into consideration.

Hence, there are more advantages in engaging our tutoring services over your child’s school/class teacher as home tutor. Thanks.

What curriculum are you using?

We make use of the curriculum and the scheme of work used by the school of our tutees (learners) or recommended curriculum for any exam we are preparing them.  Various curricula schools use are viz: Nigerian Curricula; British Curricula; American Curricula; Canadian Curricula or the combination of any two of these.

Where do you carry out your teaching /lesson?

Presiders’ Educare renders private lessons in various homes of our clients or agreed places (aside from home) suitable for learning like offices, suites etc. a place void of distractions and dangers.

Yes, we are government approved; properly registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (C.A.C) for all the services being rendered by Presiders’ Educare. Most of our tutors are members of the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN).

Do you set homework?

Yes. We do give home work to our pupils/students (tutees) but based on considerations; if their schools use to give much homework, there is a need to reduce ours while we deliberately give homework to engage playful and idle ones

Do you help a child to do their school homework?

We assist our pupils/ students of their school homework in such a way that they would be able to solve or answer the similar questions while in school without failing.

Which study books do you recommend?

We do not just recommend any book until we see it’s necessary; we make use of the school textbooks your child(ren) is/are already using. But if we see that a particular book is needed for the sake of the purpose of the lesson, says, preparatory lessons for entrance exam, then specific books like Past questions etc, will be recommended. Besides, we have some resource materials specially used by our tutors to ensure success.

Which books do you recommend for pupils preparing for (common) entrance examinations?

We have entrance exams into various secondary schools such as Federal/State Gov’t College; Missionary Secondary Schools; Air force Schools; Command Secondary School; University Staff Schools; Private Colleges. There are past questions used for prep such as Checkpoints, Fed/State Common Entrance, Ugo C. Ugo etc. We use the Past question books according to specified Entrance exam of such particular school. We also have materials, where applicable, for different classes.

How competent are your tutors?

Oh! We are proud to have the set of tutors working with us. They are selected after rigorous tests by merit, inducted into the standard of this institute through re-trainings, in-service-trainings, seminars, close monitoring, motivations and sanctions as appropriate to help carrying out our value propositions. Hence, our testimonials speak for us.

How long can you handle a student to ensure success in his /her academics or examinations?

Learners (pupils or students) are unique in potentials; they have different pace of learning and different learning challenges as well. Any learner who is face with;

  • Background (academic) problems: such as slow learning, slow writing, very poor in calculation; over pampering to mention a few.
  • Behavioural problems : such as having no interest in learning or having a wrong notion in a particular subject and can express to parents or teachers point blank, how much he/she hates such subject, especially, Mathematics; lazy-to-learn habit.

Such pupils or students with the above challenges tend to take up to 3-6 months before a noticeable improvement begins to take place. Parents and guardians are advised to be patient enough as the results will surely turn good at the end. Count on us as we count on God.

On the other hand, pupils /students who possess the following characteristics below can respond very quickly under our tutelage:

  • Fast learners but too playful and who need home tutors to keep them engaged while give enough homework to be done days tutors are not coming.
  • Fast learners but stubborn
  • Ready to learn and so inquisitive to know more
  • Average students: that is, one who scores between 50-65 in Math, English, and Science Subjects during internal or local school exam and is preparing for an external examination such as COMMON ENTRANCE , BECE (JSCCE), SSCE, GCE, DIPLOMA, GRE, TOEFL, GMAT, SAT and so on
  • Learners with a sudden weak performance/ poor result: such as a student who has been performing very bright before. For instance, a pupil/ student who has been within 1st – 3rd positions; or having up to 65 score and above in the First term but suddenly scores below average in a particular (or core) subject or in overall score. Or students who start having low performance the moment they get to Senior Secondary School classes (SS 1-3).

We do not discriminate but respect potentials of both male and female tutor. But if the tutoring package you chose really requires a particular gender of tutor or in other words, if your main purpose for engaging our home tutoring service would suite a male or female tutor, we will definitely provide.
