Senior Secondary School Further Mathematics Tutor
What my experience tutoring further mathematics has shown me is that students learn in different ways and require different means with which to access their learning. As much as possible, I try to use different learning tools to enable understanding and memory development. A particular focus on my tutoring is giving students certain skills which have application beyond the classroom and will help them achieve higher goals in the future. Skills such as efficient note taking, text analysis and memory improvement exercises vital not only as academic tools but as skills needed throughout life.
My name is Adeniji Stephen, a Second Class upper Division graduate of Chemistry from the University of Lagos.
I am a highly experienced and enthusiastic tutor with a passion for teaching and learning as well as sustainability with over five years of tutoring experience, teaching both Junior and Senior Secondary School classes.
I have tutored over twenty students in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Further Mathematics and also prepared students for various examinations like IGCSE, WAEC, SAT, GMAT and Cambridge A-level. Some of whom are graduates while others are undergraduates within and outside Nigeria.
I discovered that patience and attentive listening are key skills as a tutor in enabling adequate understanding and instilling a positive change in my students.
When it comes to examinations, i am aware to the fact that current examination assessment objectives demands specific techniques and demonstration of skills from candidates, and this has helped increase the success rate of my students.
I adapt my teaching to the specific requirements of each student in accordance with their personal requirements, and ensure that they receive the most relevant assistance possible for their school work and examination.
Above all, I feel that tutoring should be a motivating and enlightening experience for every student as a facilitator to achieving the student's highest potential, and this has been my secret.
