Lesson

Junior Secondary school level is the preliminary phase of the High school level, and as such need a teacher who is grounded in the theories of high school mathematics in order to establish a strong foundation for the students which will affect their performances in both the senior levels and during their undergraduate degree.


I have been tutoring students from my undergraduate days, which enabled me master the dynamics of knowledge impartation. Shortly after my undergraduate degree, I was assigned a role as the Cowbell Mathematics Competition senior category instructor of Centia Christian School Port Harcourt, where i prepared some selected students for the competition. I also handled extra-mural classes on Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry for Jamb and WAEC Candidates after my stay in Centia Christian School.


It can be inferred that the acumen for mathematics is built at the Junior secondary school level, where the basics are taught. This is a critical stage in the education of individuals, where the love and proficiency, hatred and deficiency are formed for subjects, particularly mathematics. Hence a dexterous tutor, who can properly disintegrate the mathematical concepts stated in their syllabus and guide the students to develop proficiency and love for the subject is needed.


During my during spell at Centia Christian school and as a JAMB/WAEC extra-mural class instructor, I ensured that some difficult concepts in mathematics like indicial equations was well understood by my students, I created a friendly environment that fostered learning and retention and I also engaged my students with multiple exercise during the classes to achieve active learning participation.
