Prepclass Tutor Since: July 2015
My name is Awoyinka, I am a graduate of Mathematics from Osun State university.I am passionate about imparting knowledge, I am a fast learner with impeccable verbal and written communication skills.
I enjoy teaching Primary and Secondary School Students Mathematics and i have been doing it for two years now. I have prepared my students for Common Entrance, and Junior WAEC.
In my lessons, I aim to build an engaging, positive and creative atmosphere in which students can flourish. For me, the importance of teaching is to allow students to access all areas of learning in a way that they enjoy, enabling them to gain a love for learning that will hopefully continue throughout their education.
I believe that teaching is about the individual and discovering how each student learns and what helps them. I have patience, I am creative and to me there is no such thing as a silly question!
I am sensitive to individual needs and believe that a personalised, multi sensory, cross-curricular and dynamic lesson plan, with positive encouragement, timed and structured activities, and assessment for learning, are key for all students to succeed as well as understand the direction of their learning moving forward. I believe that ‘Assessment for Learning’ is a particularly crucial element to lessons as this will allow the students to understand what they need to do to improve their learning and move on to a more advanced level of thinking.

My tutoring sessions are interactive requiring participation from both sides. I encourage students to ask questions. Instead of providing direct answers I prefer to direct their thought process in a way that they can figure out the answers themselves. This guarantees that the subject is understood to a deeper level. It also gives them satisfaction that the student has managed to solve the problems on their own while still using the time efficiently. In addition, I teach methods and strategies which make seemingly difficult problems solvable with little effort. I believe that there is no single tutoring method that would fit all students. My tutoring approach is flexible and is adjusted according to student's needs.
