Lesson

In 2014, I was an associate tutor at Iganmode Grammar School, where I taught Mathematics and coordinated the day-to-day tutoring, using step-by-step systems. I was also responsible for assessing the weekly performances of this team ( of 6 students), from which one of them emerged as the first runner up of Cowbell National Secondary School Mathematics Competition – Senior category (2014 edition) at the state level. In addition to this, all of these students had distinction in Mathematics in their SSCE and great math scores in UTME.

Mathematics, as we know it, can be a very boring subject to teach (as a tutor) or learn (as a student), right? Well, one of the things I realized was that if I didn't try to relate with the student(s) or create or have any interesting story to share about the topic, I'd seem a boring teacher and they'd stop paying attention. So, I learned that building a strong student-tutor relationship and being able to effectively communicate what I teach doesn't just make me a better tutor but also a better person.

About

Hello,


I was a Mathematics tutor before I got into college, and I had taught it for more than a year.


Teaching Mathematics is a skill which I have cultivated through: Spending hours, daily, solving different math problems from a range of topics, participating and winning in countless mathematics challenges and competitions like the Cowbell National Secondary School Mathematics Competition, and Preparing over 10 students to win the aforementioned mathematics competition and pass national exams.

But we both know Mathematics can be a very boring subject to learn, right? Well one of the things I realized was that if I didn't try to relate with the student(s), or create or have any interesting story to share with them about the topic I was teaching, I would seem as a boring teacher and they'd stop paying attention. So I learned that building trust and being able to communicate what I taught made me a better tutor.

I have been obsessed with mathematics since high school and I've been teaching it since then. I believe mathematics itself is a language and everyone deserves to be fluent in it. One just needs the right instructor.


. . .and here I come.
