Senior Secondary School Further Mathematics Tutor
Home tutor in Ikeja, Lagos
I am an experienced Further Mathematics (Additional Mathematics) teacher. I have taught the subject in three (3) different schools in the past. I have also prepared other students for exams (IGCSE Additional Maths and WAEC Further Maths) in the past.
My expertise involves more than a set of general problem-solving skills but a well-organized knowledge of concepts and inquiry procedures. I know the structure of the subject and this knowledge provides me with necessary skill that guide the assignments I give my students, the assessments I use to gauge my students’ progress, and the questions I ask them.
Some of the ways I help my students achieve excellence include the following:
- Raising the bar of expectation
- Creating a testing pathway
- Observing, modifying, and reevaluating performance
- Personalizing and offering choice
- Encouraging maths talk
- Seeking to develop understanding
- Choosing meaningful tasks
- Explaining application of topics in real life situations
- Making maths teaching and learning fun
I am a Maths teacher with over 10 years teaching experience. I have a BSc(Ed.) Maths from Lagos State University and a M.Ed. Maths from University of Ibadan. I currently teach senior school maths in Corona Secondary School, Agbara with outstanding results. My students had 100% credit pass in WAEC last year and my IGCSE students had very good results, too.
The understanding that every student is unique helps me when interacting and connecting with students of different strengths, age groups and cultural backgrounds.
My strong communication and teaching skills give me the unique opportunity to explain difficult concepts easily, and I constantly strive to expand my students’ interest in mathematics by fostering a fun learning environment where they can blossom into well-rounded individuals.
