When teaching mathematics, i always make sure it is relatable to the students and that maths is not boring as a lot of students already described it as an uninteresting tiring subject. That is why many experience math anxiety when faced with a math course after a long break. Others just simply have a deep-seated fear of tests or doing math problems in general because of a bad experience struggling through a math class in high school. With the way I teach my students maths, they always look forward to every maths lesson.

My name is Makinde, I am a second class upper division graduate of Chemical and Polymer Engineering from the University of Lagos. I was awarded a university scholarship all through my stay in the University as a result of my excellent academic performance.

For two (2) years now, I have successfully taught Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics to Secondary Students preparing them for internal examinations and external examinations like Jamb, O-levels and A-levels.

My approach to teaching is that i always tackle fundamentals first, with the aim of developing confidence and basic skills. I have a friendly and approachable style to my teaching which makes my students feel empowered to ask as many questions as they need and approach lessons as a discussion not a lecture.

I always like to take a few lessons to get an appreciation of the strengths and weaknesses of each of my student. Once I have done so, I set challenges and aims for each student, and encourage the student to work through the problems they are having with guidance. I also believe many of the students I teach are capable of achieving their aims, so I do my best to instill confidence!

I give my students the tools to unlock their full potential. My passion for my students and my own educational experience gives me a very strong grounding in enabling this empowerment.

    In my years of teaching, I have learnt to be flexible and dynamic in order to meet the individual needs of each student. Having taught students of different ages and abilities, I understand the importance of employing different learning styles and strategies in order to maximize each student's full potential. I always revisit already taught topics before introducing the students to new topics. This ensures that what has been taught has been fully understood.
