Hello, my name is Grant Oddoye, and I was born in 1982A.D. I have an Engineering Degree. I have worked as an Engineer and Teacher, and also in some other jobs. In the classroom I can feel what the students require/need to understand what I am saying to them, and the way I have to present the material to them so that it can be understood clearly, and learnt as easily as possible. I can also prepare educational content to a good/great level by hand or using a computer or phone. I am a Native English Speaker, and understand and communicate many complicated English grammatical constructs. I have a clear voice and accent, and can teach to international standards and varied mindsets.
