Prepclass Tutor Since: May 2017
My name is Ajose, I am a graduate of Computer Science Education from Tai Solarin University. For two years i have successfully taught Primary and Junior Secondary Students Mathematics and ICT.
I am a fun loving individual who is extremely passionate about Mathematics and ICT and helping students learn these subjects in a fun way. I really enjoy showing students that they are actually easy subjects and building up their confidence is an important part of my lessons. I believe that the main key to be successful in these subjects is self-confidence!
I have excellent communication skills and am very approachable. Students are always comfortable in asking me as many questions as they need to in order to understand the subject. I always remind them that “There is no such thing as a silly question! The more questions you ask the quicker you will learn”.
Each child is different which means that I tailor each of my lessons to suit each student. I have many different teaching techniques to ensure that I am able to explain, what may seem like a complex topic, in a simple and effective manner.
Mathematics is a maze of many concepts. Too often students try to memorise them which requires intense hours of repetition with little understanding. I like to bring these concepts into an understandable reality so that the student does not have to memorise. They now understand it. Once they understand it, they do not need long hours of intense repetition as it is now engrained in their way of thinking. I believe that you cannot forget something you understand but it is very easy to forget something that you have simply just memorised.
I like to think that instead of just teaching Mathematics, I inspire students so that eventually they begin to like Maths and no longer need my support.
