It is my fundamental belief that making mathematics lessons interesting for my students is crucial in effective teaching of mathematics, where a huge amount of learning takes place while students are doing unassisted exercises. Through my encouraging and interesting approach to tutorials, I instil a passion in my students, that makes them respond to exercises in maths with enthusiasm and confidence.
My name is Agboluaje, I am a Second class upper division graduate of Microbiology from the Obafemi Awolowo University.
I have successfully taught students in Primary School Mathematics, English Language and Science for two (2) years.
I usually begin my teaching with a preliminary assessment to better understand the student's strengths and weaknesses in a given area. This is not a gruelling task, but something fun and engaging,which allows me to better assess how the student thinks or articulates.
I also check that the student has a grasp of the basic concept of the syllabus, particularly if working towards an entrance examination.
I tailor my teaching to the needs of the student which I may adjust in future sessions depending on the student's progress.
I believe the process of learning and widening a student's horizons in a given subject, is paramount to education.
I encourage the students to look beyond their syllabus, to deepen their knowledge of the subjects.

When teaching I keep my students stimulated and engaged, I switch between difficult exercises and more relaxed tasks, which stretches them beyond the syllabus. I often build a reading list to both improve performance and extend the student's knowledge. Every few sessions I will set a mini test, to test the student's understanding of previous lessons, i carry out my evaluation and give necessary corrections.
