Math is a subject I enjoy helping students understand along with the algorithms used to solved different types of problems. I always find different ways to explain something new until it clicks for the student; I am very patient, open, and welcoming. Also, translating dry mathematics concepts into engaging analogies is a characterizing part of my teaching style. My tutoring specialty lies in getting students comfortable with maths and getting rid of the fear of maths.
My name is Dorcas, I am a graduate of Integrated Science Education from the Federal College of Education Zaria, Kaduna State.
I have over four (4) years of teaching experience, teaching Mathematics and Biology to Secondary School Students.
I'm self motivated, with a penchant for delivering premium service. I display this by understanding the uniqueness of my students and selecting the most effective strategy or method of teaching that is going to work for the student. I count my self successful when I see desired learning outcomes being displayed by my learners.
My student teacher experiences affords me the opportunity to assume all the responsibilities of an elementary teacher at multiple grade levels. I feel confident and qualified to take on the challenges that teaching offers as I am always eager to demonstrate my talent and teaching skills.
I have a comprehensive experience of tutoring and teaching with a variety of learning tools to suit my student's style of learning. I am also committed to the implementation of high standards in the education of my students.

I believe in keeping my students engaged. I switch between difficult exercises and the not so difficult tasks which stretches them beyond the syllabus. I often build a reading list to both improve performance and extend the student's knowledge. From time to time, i give periodic tests, to test the student's understanding of previous lessons, i carry out my evaluation and make necessary corrections.
