An Expert IGCSE Math Tutor

Imagine a building without a solid foundation after some years it would eventually come falling. Granted it may be able to make it for several years, but the moment a little earthquake occurred the building would not have the foundation to support it.

The concept also applies to mathematics. Just like a building, math requires a solid foundation.

As a math tutor with more than six years experience, I found out that one of the major reasons students don't do well in math at the college level is because they are missing certain important mathematical concepts from their earlier years. Over the years they developed gaps in understanding.

When a student does not grasp the foundational concept, and they move on to challenging math, it creates a gap in understanding. These gaps in understanding are like holes in a bucket of water and unfortunately would not go away until they are fixed.

One of my roles as a math tutor is to help your child bridge those foundational gaps. In my 'IGCSE Math' lesson, the first thing I do is to place my student on a math assessment that would pinpoint these gaps in understanding from previous years. Afterward, I ensure the students master those foundational concepts completely and continue to build on it to whatever level. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

About

Dear esteemed clients,

Thank you for visiting my profile. I'm a Master's graduate of Radiation and Health Physics.

I have a true passion for teaching Physics, Mathematics and Further Mathematics. I have been tutoring for 6 years and have had great success with my students, ranging from high school to college-age and non-traditional students.

I began tutoring by helping other students in my high school classes. At the University of Ilorin, I tutored a group of first-year students in math courses (Calculus and Trigonometry). Also, I helped a fellow student raise score from an F to an A-grade in a 200-level math course (differential equations, an extension of calculus).

In post-graduate school, I instructed undergraduate courses in calculus-based Physics and chemistry. In 2017, I took a position with a tutoring company ‘Baum Template’ where I worked one-on-one with a student for WAEC, NECO, IGSCE and UTME exams.

I prefer one-on-one tutoring and enjoy engaging my students with fun and challenging problems. I like to apply math to real-world situations to allow my students to fully understand the relevance and necessity of knowing math and apply it in their day-to-day activities.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
