Experienced Economics Tutor
In my teaching Economics, I have always believed that structure is key to success. Even more important than this structure, is that the lessons are delivered as an enjoyable and natural conversation rather than information just being dictated. This serves to make the sessions an enjoyable and anticipated part of the week, rather than a chore to get out of the way.
My name is Johnson. I have an Educational Degree in Economics (B.Sc.Ed.) from Tai Solarin University of Education, and a Masters in Educational Evaluation from the same institution.
I have been teaching actively for the past 8 years in a formal school setting, while I also prepare my students for external examinations (local and international examinations).
I basically specialize in teaching Economics and Commerce for Senior Secondary and Tertiary level. I also have a good success rate in teaching Polytechnic and University students advanced Economics to meet up to their daily lectures.
My personal philosophy about teaching is that every student is teachable. All that is needed is to teach each student in his/her peculiar way, and this has always worked for me.
For me, the most important aspects of teaching are flexibility and sensitivity: I assess each student's unique requirements and i tailor my lessons with them accordingly. As I have gained experience of a wide range of students, I have learned to recognize weakness and strength with accuracy.
I use this to hone my students' learning and help them achieve the best possible grades. I place a lot of emphasis on enjoyment of the texts but always with a very focused eye on translating that information into strong written work.
My aim is to provide the support that my students need, in conjunction with their school work, to perform to the best of their ability.
