Lesson
Upper Primary Math Tutor

The following qualities set me apart as an excellent math tutor:

Good communicator

I communicate well with my students; both oral and written communication and I am always available to respond to calls, texts and emails when the student requires further explanation.

I am able to communicate the learning material in a way that the student understands and is able to solve math problems independently.

Patient

I am very patient because I understand that Math can be challenging especially for novices and beginners. Thus, I am able to patiently explain the materials to students in multiple ways until they get a good grasp of the concept.

A natural teacher

I posses both the skill level and ability to relay information in order to successfully teach someone else. I am also knowledgeable of the Upper Primary Math Scheme as he/she prepares.

Passionate

I am passionate about Math and Teaching it to others. It gives me great Joy when students pass as a result of endless hours of teaching

Inquisitive

As a tutor, I am able to ask the right questions of my student in such a way that the student is encouraged to deeply understand concepts, formulas etc without cramming

About

I am a bachelors and Masters degree holder in Pharmacology and Toxicology from the University of Lagos Nigeria.

I have been teaching for as long as I can remember. I started out when I was in Junior secondary school by preparing primary six students for the National Common Entrance exams. I am actually passionate about mathematics and the Natural Sciences (Biology in particular) and I am adept at transmitting this passion to my students when I teach.

My approach is hands on; I encourage my students to solve problems by applying concepts learnt. I also don't give up on my students as i believe there is no dull student. I inspire my curiosity in my students about the intricacies of maths and the complex biological processes that take place in living organisms.

To this end, I am proud to say that out of  8 junior school students I have taught so far, 6 have gone on to major in science and are doing very well. Also, all 5 of my students I prepared for the sciences in WASCCE passed with at least a C4 in biology and maths.

I have tutor students for Graduate Record Exams (GRE) quantitative and verbal reasoning and I have written and passed the same exam in flying colours

In addition, I nurture a winning attitude in my students as there is no successful man with a weak  mentality.
