Summary

The birth of the Excel Star Learners online tutoring platform was inspired by my desire to be a stay-at-home mom while caring for my special needs son. With over 18 years of experience in teaching, school management, and tutoring, I wanted to continue pursuing my greatest passion, which is teaching, from the comfort of my own home. What began with one child has now grown to include over twenty students from Canada, America, the UK, and Nigeria.

This dream has sparked an innovative approach to education, offering countless teachers the opportunity to explore new teaching avenues. Nigeria is home to a remarkable group of educators who have made significant contributions to different cultures around the world, thanks to immigration and new opportunities. We aim to showcase the immense impact that Nigerian teachers can have on other societies.

Our vision is for Excel Star Learners to become Nigeria’s largest online tutoring platform. I warmly invite you to join me on this beautiful journey. Together, let’s dream big and reach for the stars.
