Lesson
I teach time proven strategies to help you ace the TOEFL at a go!

I am an experienced TOEFL tutor and I teach students to help them improve their score by giving them the necessary required preparation. The TOEFL, like other standardized tests, is predictable, since ETS has to test the same concepts in each and every test. This predictability is what makes the test coachable.

My teaching method involves assessing the student's understanding of US English since the TOEFL is a language exam with its providers based in the US. This I do by taking a practice test with the students at the initial stage to have a view of the candidate's strengths and weaknesses. I introduce the candidate to the various sections of the test and give them time proven clues and strategies needed to improve their score in all the sections. 

I work on improving the students understanding of the reading, listening and writing sections of the test and how understanding some key relationships among these sections can help ease their preparation. I give details on the different question types for each section and strategies to choose the correct answer and avoid distractions while working at a fast pace to avoid being unable to finish before the allotted time. 

I give enough practice to my students by providing enough preparation materials to help them practice more and be confident to take the exam and ace it. The secret codes are what differentiate a middle score student from a high score student.

About

I am a first class graduate of mathematics from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso.

 

 

 

Teaching and tutoring has been my metier since my secondary school days and extends to my days as an undergraduate, where I frequently  tutor my colleagues in challenging subjects and courses. I have taught in primary school, secondary school and  tutored in a tutorial centre where i prepare SSCE, UTME and Post-UTME students for their exams. I majorly teach mathematics, further mathematics and physics. My students have a track record of excelling in their various exams.

 

I currently work as a teacher in a secondary school teaching mathematics and further mathematics, and also work part-time at a career consulting firm where we prepare clients for international standardized tests (GRE, GMAT, SAT, SSAT among others). I am one of the quantitative/maths instructor. I have helped prepare a lot of students for their exams and the results have been impressive. I teach time proven strategies to help them ace the exams at a go. 

 

 

 

I am also engaged in home tutoring and the parents have been so impressed by the improvement in their wards performances that they easily recommend me to their colleagues.

 

 

 

The ability to explain difficult topics in clear and concise manner with adequate examples is one of my major strength and the reason why my students still recommend me to their colleagues.
