Common Entrance Math Tutor
Home tutor in Surulere Lagos State, Lagos
Maths is a science I make my students conversant with.
I have an undergraduate degree in Economics, from the University of Lagos, I have taught students preparing the National Common Entrance Examination (NCEE) (specifically mathematics) for several years..
I have over 7 years of experience tutoring at tutorial college and as a Prepclass tutor. In March this year(2019), I Helped one of my clients prepare her daughter in grade 6 for the entrance examination (mathematics) at Atlantic Hall and she passed with flying colours. She will be resuming JSS 1 or year 7 at the end of summer.
In my years of teaching common entrance mathematics, I have learnt by experience that every student has the skill and ability to grasp concepts of mathematics, it just takes time to discover the right approach because not every student approaches the subject identically. Students need someone on their side to make them believe that they can do it.
I am a graduate of Economics from the University of Lagos , I have excellent communication skills and teaching is more than a job to me, it is a passion.
As a qualified teacher I believe I have an extraordinary opportunity to assist and support children through their individual learning paths. I take this opportunity seriously because I understand that it can have a great impact on children's lives and on the type of society we are helping to create.
I aim to provide friendly, engaging and informative tutorials that focus on the specific needs of each student. Each session will be planned with the individual goals and learning styles of students in mind to maximise what can be achieved. I believe that teaching is most valuable when it provides tools that students can use outside of tutorials, and I therefore try to teach approaches to problem-solving and build students' confidence in their ability.
