Check Point Exam Maths Tutor
Home tutor in Yaba, Lagos
Generally, Maths is taught in an overly complicated manner that not all students can understand. A good Maths teacher is one who can breath new life into the Maths subject. My passion is to continuously explore creative ways of teaching Maths so that students can learn Maths better and improve faster.
Students who attended my class for the first time were surprised. Topics that they find difficult to understand, they could learn it in my class within one lesson. I have a solid experience of teaching Mathematics as a private tutor. Recently I helped an almost hopeless Year 11 student with FAIL grade at school to achieve "A" in Maths exam only in 3 months. All of my students with C-grade improved their grades quickly to B+ and A's. I successfully assisted some of my weak students to catch up with their peers in 3 months. One of my students was awarded with “the most improved student in Maths" at school.
A wide range of teaching materials (pictures, printouts, maps, text/workbook, etc) are used to enhance their learning. I focus on speaking and conversation through role-plays, pair-works, questioning, etc, unless otherwise requested. I conduct lessons based on the curriculum of their school and I conduct mock exams for them weekly. Diagrams, graphs or other visual aids are frequently used so that they can clearly and visually understand important Mathematical concepts or formula.
Lessons are carefully planned and designed to suite each individual’s level, learning style, preference and time available for learning and at the same time to have fun. I provide appropriate amount of homework to enhance their learning and monitor their progresses which are carefully checked and any question will be explained until they are fully clear.
