Lesson
Upper Primary Tutor with 2 years experience and I have tutored ‘below average students ’ to A student in less than three months.

Mathematicians are not born genius. With the right teaching methods and zeal anyone can achieve it.

My experience as a teacher in Adamawa state in 2017 boosted my confidence that no one is actually brainless. It only takes the right method to harness the hidden potentials. I was faced with students that could hardly spell their name or even add up four- digit number with one- digit number at upper primary level.

  Although, this wasn't a difficult task, but one that will require time, focus and special teaching methods. I love challenges. I took up the challenge with 20 students of such. 

I started with the foundation of Mathematics. How to quickly and mentally solve mathematical problems, seeing mathematical problems as real life situations. In less than three months they could compete with their peers within and outside the state.

I usually encourage my students to combine speed with accuracy. My students can solve Algebra, Ratios, simple interest, shapes etc. with the speed of light.

This is what makes my students outstanding and are referred to as “Mathemagicians” due to some smart math tricks.
