Versatile Mathematics Tutor
I am extremely passionate about Mathematics, and try to extend this passion and enthusiasm to my students, to help them gain the confidence they want and need to tackle their exams successfully.
I hope to challenge and stimulate my students in a way that gets them to think critically about Mathematics and thereby learn transferable skills that are not merely limited to an examination or test, but which will also be applicable in other areas of their lives.
My name is Godwin. I am a graduate of Economics from the University of Benin.
I have over three years experience teaching English Language and Mathematics, and preparing students for GCE and WAEC examination.
I help my students develop their study skills for entrance examinations and prepare effectively, focusing on the areas of weakness and building knowledge from there.
I have a dynamic approach to tutoring that caters to the needs of my student. I begin by discussing and setting clear goals. Then i establish what the most efficient method of achieving those goals are and what style of teaching will benefit the student most.
Though some tutors lecture their students, my lessons tend to be highly interactive. The more active my student's mind, the better they retain the material.
I often use questions to check my student's understanding and to encourage him or her to think creatively about the material.
Tutoring is about getting my student become inspired by a subject by really getting through to them and finding out how they can connect with it.
It is my belief that if a student doesn't understand what you are saying, you are not tutoring them properly.
Therefore I try to keep a good balance between tailoring lessons to my student's individual needs and using the reliable tools for learning that create results.
My approach has consistently yielded higher academic achievement and better motivated students.

My approach is driven by my students. I believe that with a basic understanding of core concepts and the self-confidence to employ them, every student is capable of academic success. I work collaboratively with parents and my student to produce a program of study which is tailored to the needs of my student, set goals and structure the tuition.
