My teaching approach to mathematics is to find simpler methods to make complex topics less complex and easily understandable.
I find that many children run away from mathematics not because of the subject itself but probably because of the method or strategy used in teaching.
I bring fun to mathematics by using paintings, charts, toys, even edible items. Just to ensure that my lessons are not boring and my students can remember what they have been taught even after classes are over
My name is Tobechukwu, i am a graduate of Social Science and Education from the University of Nigeria. I also have a masters degree in Education from the University of Lagos.
For over 3 years i have had the privilege of teaching children in Primary School Mathematics, and English Language.
My experience and qualification allows me to develop creative ways to teach lessons effectively and stimulate my students curiosity to learn.
I am always excited about teaching my students, and i always help my students feel the same fascination towards learning.
It is very important to me that my student truly understands the concepts i am teaching, as I find this is the best way to retain the information and apply it to solving problems.
My aim as a teacher to instill confidence, both in the subject I teach, their general education and personal development.
My goal is not just to tick boxes on a syllabus but to repair specific faults. I don't just teach my students, i work with them.
