Upper Primary Math Tutor
Home tutor in Port Harcourt, Rivers
As a Mathematics tutor, I work with upper primary pupils in majorly in Basic 5 and Basic 6. I also handle Basic 4 students occasionally.
I take my time before classes to prepare my teaching notes, which must be within the scope and scheme of work of the class I intend to teach. This is done using the text books approved by the School's education board as well as the pupil's school. It also covers the required curriculum for the pupil.
I start by doing a quick recap of the previous class, if there was any. If there wasn't a previous class, then I introduce the topic, from my prepared notes. I ask questions to ensure that the pupil keeps up with my teaching. I use text illustrated examples to show the applications of the topic that is being taught. As I proceed with the teaching, I always give room for the pupils to ask me questions about what that can't grab at intervals. I move further to access the pupil with classwork and brain teasers from the topic being taught. During this process I go over the teaching severally, to ensure that the pupil is on the right track. I conclude by doing a recap of all that was taught for that session. I give room for more questions not necessarily related to the topic of discussion. Then I end with a take home assignment.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology from the University of Port Harcourt.
My experience as a teacher spans over 2 years, in the areas of Biology and Mathematics. During my National Youth Service Corps in Cross Rivers State, I was designated the subject teacher taking Mathematics for Senior Secondary Class 1 (SS 1) and Basic Science for Junior Secondary Class 3 (JSS 3). During my time in Cross Rivers, I assisted in tutoring students preparing for WAEC and NECO examinations and they passed their exams. I am currently teaching in a primary School at Omuma, Rivers State as an assistant and part time teacher, with my main focus being pupils preparing to transfer into secondary school.
I leverage my patience and core skills to ensure that my students understand the rudiments of the subject being taught to them. With these, I am able to prepare them drive and them to success.
