I have taught math subjects ranging from basic mathematics all the way to higher theoretical mathematics. I specialize in teaching calculus, discrete math, linear algebra, pre calculus, trigonometry, as well as other subjects. I have taught these subjects for several years, and I know common areas where students tend to struggle in these courses.
My name is Ogungbemi, I am a graduate of Mathematics from the University of Lagos. I am a Cambridge certified Mathematics teacher. Apart from that, as a Mathematics and Stastitics major, I teach Further Mathematics and Physics. I teach currently in an international school.
I am a teacher that relates with much enthusiasm, empathy and commitment with my students. I love to break new grounds in the way I approach my teaching. I like to use technology where it applies. I like to achieve with my students.
In my teaching, I am particularly concerned with building up my students' confidence. Particularly for test preparation, becoming confident in one's ability to master the exam is vital for success. I do this by coming up with creative ways to ensure that my students can find a way to enjoy the subject we are working on together.
I am very quick to spot and support a student's individual strengths which helps not only in personalizing my lesson plans, but is why I am particularly helpful in assisting students prepare school and university applications that emphasize their skills, passions and individuality.

One of the best things about tutoring versus teaching is that the nature of one-to-one lessons allows them to be tailored specifically to the individual student. So I think the most important part of tutoring is building a solid relationship with the student, such that I can work out exactly what they need from the lessons, and how best to deliver it to them. My detailed knowledge in my expert subjects, when combined with the relationship I build with the student, allows me to go into details beyond the syllabus if I can tell that the student is wanting more or needs to be pushed. But, I can also recognise when a student is struggling with a particular concept and then approach it from a new angle to help their understanding.
