Supportive Physics Tutor
I believe in an interactive approach that relies on asking the appropriate questions to lead the student to the answer gradually, by first connecting concepts, and then relying on the student to explain a stepwise solution to me. I have applied this approach effectively and pragmatically to instruct multiple high school and college students across a variety of academic disciplines.
My name is Elizabeth. A second class upper division graduate of Mathematics from the Federal University of Technology Akure.
I am a dedicated, hardworking and goal-oriented individual who always wants the best for everyone around me. I am confident in my abilities to produce results.
I have always being passionate about teaching right from my secondary school days where I organized tutorials for some of my classmates and my university days where I taught several of my departmental mates.
I have prepared students for WAEC, NECO and JAMB in Mathematics and Physics who performed excellently well.
It is vital that students gain a comprehensive understanding of how to decipher exams and the way they are marked but is equally important for the student to feel confident, calm and capable when under exam conditions.
As a teacher I am hugely enthusiastic about all my subjects and believe it is vital to create a supportive, enjoyable and productive learning environment for students.
My initial approach is to develop a solid relationship with students in order to discover their learning techniques, interests, strengths and weaknesses and provide them with specific support and guidance.
The benefit of private tutoring is that it allows me to provide tailor made lessons and strategies to students that can directly address any areas of lower confidence and bolster areas of strength and capability.

The one-on-one learning experience that tutoring provides is so beneficial allowing students to learn without judgment and teachers to take on more of a coaching role. I am patient and supportive and always try to bring in real life situations to help people learn physics. Some students lean on their strong math abilities but need help understanding concepts, while others need more repetition with mathematical equations in order to master the challenges of physics.
