Upper Primary Math Tutor
Home tutor in Ejigbo, Lagos
Pupils see Numeracy as a major turn off which is not supposed to be so. A major challenge that I have noticed while teaching Numeracy is solving word problems. A good comprehension of the English used in such a problem is very key.
For pupils in the lower elementary, there are some fundamental things they must understand so that the learning of Numeracy would not be a challenge. For example, the multiplication table, capacity, weight and length tables, etc. An early assimilation of these key elements is vital.
Constant testing or examination of the pupils is key. After every lesson, I always give my pupils excercises to test their assimilation of the topic that has just been taught. If their performance is not encouraging, the lesson would be carried out again using a different method.
Timing is so important. I encourage my pupils to always remember that no matter how good they are, they must always remember that they will be graded by how many correct answers they can give within a specified time. Timing is important. We carry out exercises to improve their working speed.
Numeracy can really be fun for your child.

I am a graduate of Crop science from the Federal University of Technology, Owerri.
I have accumulated a teaching experience that spans over 6 years. This has mostly been in Numeracy, Literacy and Sciences.I have worked with pupils in the lower and upper elementary classes to achieve academic success.
I love to work with learners. I create a conducive environment where the learner can express his or her challenges without fear or embarrassment.
I also love to interact with parents and guardians. This is because getting feedback from them about their ward/child and also giving them tips/feedback is key to ensuring the overall success of their academic journey.

I was responsible for the teaching and supervision of Numeracy lessons for grades 1 to 5. I organized extra tutoring classes for pupils on Saturdays to help prepare them for external examinations. I organised maths quizzes for pupils to help encourage them love maths a lot more.
