Lesson

Experienced Mathematics Tutor

It is my fundamental belief that making lessons interesting for my students is crucial in effective teaching.

This is especially so for Mathematics, where a huge amount of learning takes place while students are doing unassisted exercises.

Through my encouraging and animated approach to tutorials, i aim to instill a passion in my students, so that they will respond to such exercises with enthusiasm and confidence.

Prepclass Tutor Since: June 2015

My name is Akinwunmi. I am a graduate of Chemical Engineering from the prestigious University of Lagos. I have also achieved a Post-Graduate Diploma in Education. I have over ten years teaching experience.

Having taught Mathematics and Physics in different tertiary institutions, i discovered one of the best things about tutoring versus teaching is that the nature of one-to-one lessons allows my teaching to be tailored specifically to the individual student.

So i think the most important part of tutoring is building a solid relationship with my 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 my expert subjects, when combined with the relationship i build with my students, 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 my student is struggling with a particular concept and then approach it from a new angle to help their understanding.

    Having worked with a great number of students over the years, i have found that each of them learn and makes sense of their subjects in very particular ways. As such, i always try to match my teaching style with the learning style of my students. I have a great interest in learning strategies and understanding the myriad of ways in which students absorb information.
