I find that the most important feature of tutoring Mathematics, is the ability to adapt to the specific needs of my student.
The range of children and young people I've worked with has proved to me that no child is incapable of learning and understanding something, as long as they are given the right environment, and i strongly believe that a personal tutor can provide that.
My name is Adetoun. I am a graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University.
I have been teaching Mathematics four the past four years and for me, the most important part of tutoring is building confidence, wherever the student is starting from. I like to get a good understanding of a student's strengths, and where there is room for improvement, encouraging the strengths whilst addressing the aspects that need working on.
Sometimes that can be about going over a topic afresh, or other times just practicing a skill, such as solving an equation. Where students are preparing for exams, I include some exam questions, to maintain technique. Lastly, I like to find out what a student finds stimulating about a subject, and give some time to nurturing that interest, as enjoyment makes hard work easier.

In my view any learning process as one of exploration and experimentation. Not only is there a lot to learn from how the knowledge was originally discovered, but it also makes the content relevant and engaging - true understanding tends to follow curiosity and perseverance. Of course, each student is different and there are many possible paths to excellence, so an essential part of the process is learning how to learn and finding the best approach.
