Upper Primary Math Tutor
Home tutor in Oshodi-Isolo, Lagos
Upper Primary Maths Tutor with 3years experience
I have a passion for educating young minds and developing the total child (mentally, socially and morally). With experience working at both the primary and secondary levels, as well as in activities outside of the traditional classroom, I have a diverse background with much to offer.
I believe every child can learn if given the requisite assistance and support from home and at school. At my last classroom experience, because the students were comfortable around me, I was able to, through individual interaction with them, recognize that 75% of them had fear for mathematics, I adopted a charismatic approach to teaching (using resources around them as teaching aid and relating topic with things they are familiar with). This incredibly reduced fear and increased the students’ appreciation for the subject: giving appropriate feedback and feed forward whilst continuously monitoring their development, their results were the better for it.
Also, in one of my classroom experience, I saw the need to hold extra math drill classes for the basic five pupils because they had low comprehension level. So, reaching a consensus with the class teacher and parents of the pupils, I started math drill classes for the pupils at 7 a.m. every day for about three months with the aim of increasing the comprehension level of the pupils. I also researched and downloaded relevant resources online to help foster their learning. This was quite effective as it produced the desired results.
I am a qualified, adaptable and motived graduate of the University of Lagos with a second class upper degree in Mathematics Education.
I have a cumulative of about three years' classroom experience in both delivering engaging lessons and instilling in students keen appreciation of mathematics.
I have taught at both the primary and secondary level, and this has built in me a considerate teaching skill that make my students have impressive results in development and exams.
I have a passion for education young minds and in developing the total child(mentally, socially and spiritually). I believe every child can learn if given the requisite assistance and support. As such I am willing to give my best to every child.
