PhD in Linguistics and English language offering phonetics/phonology lessons and dissertation/thesis proposal writing

Methodology

I have a bachelors degree in English language, Masters in English Language and linguistics and PhD in Linguistics and English Language. I have taught secondary school students English language for 10 years, then I taught the use of English and introduction to phonetics and phonology to undergraduate university students. I engage students in my class and ensure that I don't spoon-feed students, by so doing, the students are encouraged to come prepared to class at all times.

Experience

I have a 15 years experience of teaching English in the secondary school and university. I have taught a great number of students in Nigeria and the UK. Most of the students that I have taught are now graduates themselves and in deferent careers.

I have known Rebecca for over 3 years and I can categorically say she is a brilliant, dedicated, hardworking and reliable person. She has all the good attributes of a good teacher and mentor. She has been teaching my daughter for over 3 years now and this has shown greatly in her school work as she is well above everyone else in her class. She has not only being her teacher, clearly, she is my daughter's mentor. She is well qualified for what she does and that where passion comes in. She is passionate about teaching. I strongly recommend her as I believe you will not regret it.

I knew her for more than 10 years. She is meek and industrious, she is not a stroppy slob nor is she a shiftless. Aunt Becky loves stoicism and loves forgiveness. She is spiffing and I am wise because of her forby smiles and hardworking ability. I know she can reach the unreachable only if she had the chance. Thanks, Anty B.

I have been working alongside Rebecca for a long time. During these years, I have known her to be a hard-working and committed colleague who has shown great potential and outstanding achievement in all her work. I have also collaborated with her in several projects and conferences and she has been wonderful to work with. Her skilful efforts and dedication is what makes her a loyal and trustworthy tutor.

Rebecca is a confident and fluent tutor who believe in investing in the student's knowledge based IQ. I know Rebecca from childhood and have seen her excell simply by believing in the development of students and helping them achieve set goal. She's a worthy tutor and as such well recommended.

Rebecca is kind, thorough, intelligent, and does everything with great integrity and care for others. She will listen to you and work with you at the right level for you and encourage you to be the best you can be with gentleness and energy.

A
Aminu

A person that believes in hard work and when it comes to language especially learning the English language for persons that have English as a second language there is no better way than learning in the “living English laboratory”. Rebecca’s approach is hands-on and practical.
