Passionate EconomicsTutor

The best preparation with Economics is to first understand the concepts and then practice many problems ranging in difficulty. I would prepare practice exams for students and found these to be extremely beneficial for their quiz and test preparation, as well as understanding difficult concepts presented in class.

Prepclass Tutor Since: December 2015

My name is Titilayo, I have a Diploma, a B.Sc and a Master's degree in Accounting and Finance from the Lagos State polytechnic and Lagos State University respectively. For the past six years, i have been teaching Accounting and Economics.

My responsibility as a tutor is not only to teach my students the necessary content, but also to arm them with all the necessary tools they will need to enjoy taking their learning far beyond our sessions.

The first tool, which can never be overstated, is a genuine interest in the subject! Once that interest is sparked it becomes much easier for students to motivate themselves, a skill which will help them extract as much joy as possible from all their future learning.

The second tool I aim to pass on to my students is perhaps a little more mundane but one that I believe to be equally as important; organisation. Not just in the practical sense of effective note taking and filing but also in relation to a students ability to organise their own thoughts.

A well organised mind is much more adept at problem solving because it grants students the ability to take a step back and see the bigger picture. I help my students to do this by talking often and in depth with them about problem solving in general and how we can apply the same techniques across a huge range of subjects and questions. It has often been said that education is less about learning facts by rote and more about training yourself to think about the world in a different (and hopefully more useful) way.

I am also a great advocate of allowing students to quantitatively track their own progress through results in mini-tests and exercises. I find that if a student can clearly see the progress that they have made so far, then the hurdles that they have yet to jump seem just that little bit more manageable.

    I assess the student's learning ability in the first class and then prepare an individual lesson plan. I break down problems for the student, to make him/her understand in an easy way. I work with the student to develop his/her analytical skills. I give assignment and test to assess his progress periodically.
