Upper Primary Math Tutor
Home tutor in Ikeja, Lagos
I have taught Mathematics for over a period of seven years in reputable academic institutions and I have registered over 95 percent delivery rate, with over seventy five percent distinction rate for pupils/students handled. Notable exams delivered include external exams such as First School Leaving Certificate Examinations, BECE, etc.
I have a particularly sound track record in handling students with weak academic abilities. I work specifically by capitalizing on the strengths of my pupils/students to improve on their academic records. This is based on a personal conviction that every child is a potential achiever when given the requisite push that is required for their personal abilities. So, I employ different methods including motivations, incentives, etc. to engineer an improvement on the part of the student. I also particularly create an atmosphere of love for the subject of Mathematics.
I guarantee noticeable improvement within first two weeks of handling a student, and this is not a hype.
Theophilus N. also teaches
I am a graduate of Philosophy from the University of Ibadan. I also have a B.Phil degree (1st Class from Pontifical Urban University, Rome).
I am convinced that I will be of great service to you given my wealth of knowledge and experience in the Education sector spanning through over 8 years. I teach C.R.S.,Geography, and Social Studies,French Language and a couple of other subjects; more like a utility teacher..
I have undergone series of training and workshop sessions, making me fully equipped for the job. I have obtained a couple of meritorious awards as the best Teacher of the year in some of the schools I have taught previously.

Feb 2015 - Mar 2018
British Spring college, Awka
As a teacher in British Spring College, I started by handling Christian Religious Studies for both Junior and Senior Secondary classes; and IGCSE Religion. I was also a form tutor for one of the junior classes. I was later made the School Disciplinarian, and then a form tutor for the Most senior class then which was SS2. From then on, it was basically from one class to the other, from one subject to the other.(as an intervention/substitute teacher). In my three years stay, I taught other subjects including Civic Education, Social Studies, Security Studies. I was also a form tutor to some of the poorest of students in various classes, both junior and senior. In July 2016, I won an award as the Teacher of the Year, after barely a year and five months in the school, making me the winner with fewest number of service years. My punctuality to school was also remarkable.
Subject Teacher/ Press Club Moderator
Sep 2013 - Jan 2015
Lorretto Special Science School, Adazi, Anambra State
I taught Christian Religious Studies to SS1/SS2 students. I was also the moderator for the school's press club during which I relaunched the otherwise defunct school publication, The Brain. It was an enthralling success especially because the publication had not gone into production for over 30 years. Students were able to air their brilliant views in various categories including news, opinion, sports, poems,cartoon, etc. I was also able to organize the debate club for the school during which they attended a lot of intra and inter-school debates.
Jan 2012 - Jul 2013
Krosa Model schools, Amawbia
I taught various subjects at Krosa, ranging from Computer Studies to Basic Technology, and then Geography. But the one that was my main subject was Geography. I won award as the best performing subject teacher in WAEC 2012, with all my students making either an 'A' or a 'B'. I also won an award for the best presentation during the graduation ceremony in July that year, with my debate team. The debate club which I initiated in the school was also a booming success by the time I left in 2013.
Oct 2011 - Jan 2012
Hez-Dike Secondary School, Awka
Here, I taught French language (JSS 3), English Language (SS1), and Mathematics (JSS2). It was quite an interesting prospect. But I didn't stay quite long here due to remuneration issues
