Flexible Mathematics Tutor
I love the challenge of helping kids understand the nuances of mathematics so that the knowledge will stay with them forever. I like to use frequent test papers to test the knowledge of students and also help prepare them for their academic tests and exams. This gets the "Exam" phobia out from their system.
My name is Dauda, I am a graduate of Science Education from the University of Lagos. I have two years of teaching experience teaching Primary School Students Mathematics and Basic Science. Preparing them successfully for Common Entrance and Checkpoint Examinations.
I adopt a very patient, process-based approach to tutoring. I aim to create an enjoyable and positive environment which facilitates learning and results. My end - goal is to instill my students with skills that will not only assist them in a particular subject, but with their entire - learning process. I am a strong believer that through hard - work, focus and the right attitude, much can be achieved.
I like to get to know my students and understand how they feel about learning. To learn best students must have a desire to learn, hence I enjoy making lessons fun and getting students confident and excited about studying.
My biggest priority as a tutor is to make learning rewarding. Studying is stressful. The point of tuition is to ease that feeling by building confidence, trust and optimism. My take is this: it is entirely possible to be relaxed, enjoy sessions and make maximum progress all at the same time.

In order to challenge (yet not overwhelm) my students, I assign personalized homework for each student after the session as well as periodical quizzes designed to test comprehension and retention of material as well as to give me an opportunity to assess how the student is progressing.
