English Language Tutor
When teaching Mathematics, i aim at building a strong working relationship and trust between i and my students.
Some students may have just lost their inspiration to learn and so it is my job to motivate and inspire them. An important role for a tutor is to build a students confidence and acting as a mentor to them. Additionally, it is important that my student is guided on an individual-based level and encouraged to actively engage and think, making links with information explained to them.
My name is Ikeh. I am a graduate of Accountancy from the National Open University.
I have five years experience teaching Mathematics and English Language.
My approach to private tutoring is warm and encouraging. I believe that building a genuine relationship with my students is of great importance, and that the greatest progress is made by establishing open, honest and authentic dialogues.
Connected to this, i believe that all questions should be cheered.
I think it is vital to be able to tailor each set of lessons to the needs of my students. Everybody learns in a variety of ways and, as such, i am always on the look out for new techniques and ideas to help me in my teaching.
That said, i am always committed to helping my students develop their confidence as i believe that if someone is to work successfully they need to firmly believe in their capacity to improve.
I like to encourage a relaxed but focused working environment with a friendly and engaging style.
I focus on discovering the strengths and weaknesses of my student first. Then we will work together on how to improve the weaknesses and consolidate the strengths.

I know that students succeed when their learning goals are not abstract or dictated by someone else but are personally meaningful. That is why i take time to really get to know my students. I also believe my students learn best when they can see the real-world application of their knowledge and skills and when they are encouraged to aspire to the highest standards. For this reason, my education and professional background are a huge asset to me as a tutor. As an experienced classroom teacher, i have a thorough understanding of the assessment requirements for public examinations, and i know exactly what it takes to succeed.
