In normal set up, student academic performance largely depends on many factors such as school environment, teaching aids, teacher qualification and learners’ competence and the teaching methodology. These can either enable students to pass or fail at any level of education. In Ruhama county Ntungamo district, there has been a spontaneous poor student performance in secondary schools especially in English language subject. (UNEB portal 2016). Observations indicate that this problem may turn worse if it is not solved earlier enough. This problem has not been noticed and its effects are undesirable in secondary schools in Ntungamo district. It is from this point of view that this research study seeks to investigate the extent to which teachers methodology affects student performance in Ntungamo district. This research study will use qualitative and quantitative in an attempt to solve this problem using relevant theories and observations. Suboptimal academic performance by the majority students at higher education level has largely been cited to be the result of ineffective teaching methods by lecturers.
