Dedicated Mathematics Tutor
One of the best things about tutoring versus teaching is that the nature of one-to-one lessons allows them to be tailored specifically to the individual student.
So i think the most important part of teaching Mathematics, is building a solid relationship with the students, such that i can work out exactly what they need from the lessons, and how best to deliver it to them.
My detailed knowledge in Mathematics, when combined with the relationship i build with my student, allows me to go into details beyond the syllabus if i can tell that my student is wanting more or needs to be pushed. But, i can also recognize when a student is struggling with a particular concept and then approach it from a new angle to help his or her understanding.
Prepclass Tutor Since: July 2016
My name is Adeniyi. I am a graduate of Mathematics, from the Lagos State University, with a Second Class (Hons) Upper Division and i have just concluded my Masters degree program in Mathematics specializing in the field of Algebra at the University of Ibadan.
I have over five years experience teaching Further Mathematics and Mathematics, and i endeavor to help my students feel the same fascination with these subjects as i do. It is also important to me that my student truly understands the concepts they are learning, as i find this is the best way to retain the information and apply it to solving problems.
I particularly love that light bulb moment when a student understands a new concept! I take the time to acquaint myself with each student’s learning style and level of ability so i can tailor my teaching style to their needs, and focus on creating a comfortable atmosphere for my students to ask questions.
I am very passionate and enthusiastic about teaching, and take a structured and detailed approach in order to instill confidence in my students and help develop their skills. I have learnt to be adaptable, flexible and dynamic in order to meet the individual needs of each student, and having taught a wide range of ages and abilities across the spectrum, i understand the importance of employing different learning styles and strategies in order to maximize each student's full potential.

No two students are the same, and so an individualized approach tailored to each student's strengths and areas of focus is not a bonus in tutoring, but a necessity. Through this, alongside a detailed knowledge of the curriculum and examination specifications, i aim to fully equip each of my students with the confidence and know how to not only achieve their goals, but crucially keep an eye on the 'bigger picture' and enjoy the learning experience.
