Experienced Mathematics Tutor
Building self confidence and fostering a love for Mathematics is my overall aim.
To do this, i endeavors to establish a close working relationship with each student based on trust and confidence that i will facilitate their examination success as well as address their wider educational needs.
Thought process, rather than content, lies at the heart of my ambition to develop self sufficient learners, yet i appreciates that content and technique cannot be underestimated when preparing for examinations.
Prepclass Tutor Since: May 2016
My name is Ayinde. I am a graduate of Civil Engineering from the University of Lagos. I have five years experience teaching Mathematics and Physics to Secondary School students.
In the initial meeting, i'll aim to find out my student's weaknesses, strengths, general interests and preferred learning style. If the aim is examination preparation, i will get my student to complete selected past year paper questions. This helps me find out what areas the student needs support with and also how i could present material in a way that will engage him/her.
We will then agree a plan of action together. In on going sessions, i will also try to integrate and model key study skills such as mind mapping, taking concise notes, memory tricks etc.
There will be quizzes either oral or written at the end of each lesson or start of the following lesson to check how much learning has been made. My student will then be ask to evaluate their own progress and set targets for themselves.
Regular file checks will also be made as my experience tells me that well-organised students are 99% of the time the best performing students.

My lessons are engaging and include a variety of activities and resources; students frequently use textbooks at school and therefore i try to break away from these and concentrate on finding other ways to teach. I like to help to build confidence and enjoy using rewards and praise throughout my lessons.
