The first word that comes to mind when I am asked about my teaching style of mathematics is that my teaching style is ‘varied’, and this isn’t simply because of the age ranges I work with. The wonderful thing about tutoring mathematics is that it is such a personal experience. No student is the same and therefore no lesson should be the same. With all my students I endeavor to tailor my lessons to their interests, learning styles and goals.
Enthusiasm and fun are also central to my teaching style as I firmly believe that with positivity and enjoyment of the subject comes confidence and improvement.
My name is Abimbola, I am a graduate of Early Childhood Education from the University of Lagos.
For over three (3) years, I have taught children in Nursery and lower Primary School. I am very conversant with the Montessori method of teaching.
I find that the most important feature of tutoring is the ability to adapt to the specific needs of the child. The age range of children (0-8years) I have worked with has proven to me that no child is incapable of learning and understanding as long as they are given the right environment.
Getting to spend time with each child individually means I can get to know each child's unique personality and learning strategies, and use that to turn examination content, application processes, or classroom goals into something familiar and approachable.
I also engage as much as possible with the natural interests of the child and use diverse and inspiring methods of teaching.
