Quantitative Reasoning Tutor
Proficient Quantitative Reasoning Teacher
I welcome the focus on the individual learner that is a central feature of tutoring, and very much enjoy engaging in the lively dialogue and individualized feedback that enables tutees to grow in confidence as learners. I bring enthusiasm and energy to my tutoring. Thanks to my work as a school teacher, my approach to tutoring is also informed, where relevant, by a sound understanding of the assessment requirements for public examinations and school entrance examinations.
My name is Jacob, a graduate of computer Science Statistics from the University of Agriculture Makurdi.I have 8 years of productive experience working as a private tutor in the areas of Computer, Maths, Chemitry and Economics. I live in Abuja where I have been able to successfully tutor over 40 students to pass various school exams, national exams and international exams.
My rare skills of imparting knowledge remains my major strength as my students remain highly motivated and successful even after my reign as their tutor.
I have a great passion for building confidence, and my tutees relate that my enthusiasm and positivity helps a great deal with making them feel positive about working and their own abilities.
I am extremely patient and encouraging and will always make sure every child feels they have gained confidence to independently approach any topic I help them with in order to build their self-belief and autonomy.
I am able to help a lot with exam and essay writing techniques; scientific writing and essay construction are things I am very confident in teaching.
I am a polite, eloquent, approachable, and friendly person and from my career path so far I am very used to being a role model for children.
I am sensitive to individual needs and I believe that a personalized, multi sensory, cross-curricular and dynamic lesson plan, with positive encouragement, timed and structured activities, and assessment for learning, are key for all students to succeed.
