Creative Mathematics Tutor

It is my fundamental belief that making lessons interesting for my students is crucial in effective teaching. This is especially so for mathematics, where a huge amount of learning takes place while students are doing unassisted exercises.

I feel that the needs of every student are unique and that one-on-one tutoring offers the ideal environment to adapt to individual students' learning styles. Personally, I love the process of forming questions that are tailored to specific students in order to give them a deeper insight into a topic..

Prepclass Tutor Since: July 2017

My name is Michael, I am a graduate of Mathematics from the Delta State University, Abraka, Delta state. For four (4) years now, i have been teaching Mathematics to both Junior and Senior Secondary School Students.

My biggest priority as a mathematics teacher is to make learning rewarding. Studying is stressful, so the point of teaching is to ease that feeling by building confidence, trust and optimism.

My take is this: it is entirely possible to be relaxed, enjoy sessions and make maximum progress all at the same time.

I like to keep my students stimulated and engaged, so i often switch between more grueling exercises and more relaxed tasks, which stretches them beyond the syllabus. Every few sessions I will set a mini test, from which I can see whether the student has absorbed the previous weeks' information. If they are working towards an exam, we will undertake regular revision using past papers and replica questions. 

I am results focused, but also believe the process of learning and widening a student's horizons in a given subject, is paramount to their education. This is most crucial for older students in the years immediately preceding their applications to University - I encourage the student to look beyond their syllabus, to deepen their knowledge of the subjects that most interest and inspire them.

    I usually begin with a preliminary assessment to better understand the student's strengths and weaknesses in a given area. This is not a gruelling task, but something fun and engaging, which allows me to better assess how the student thinks/articulates. I will also check the student has a grasp of the basic minutiae of their syllabus, particularly if working towards an entrance exam. I will then tailor a program to their needs, which I may adjust in future sessions depending on their progress.
