The benefit of private teaching Mathematics, is it allows me to provide tailor made lessons and strategies to students that can directly address any areas of lower confidence and bolster areas of strength and capability.
Hard work and dedication are also crucial to achieving your goal, and throughout my classes i look for ways to get my students enthused and keen to put in the time, which will help them with independent study. It is only when i think they are working to the best of their ability that i am satisfied.
My name is Ojuh, a graduate of Chemical Engineering from Covenant University.
I have over four years experience teaching Mathematics. Everyday i work very hard to improve myself and my skills, i also have organised tutorials in schools.
Ideally, i want my students to feel that every new topic or idea that they come across is something that they could have invented themselves, given enough time and the correct initial line of thought. Therefore, when time allows, i tend to teach the reason behind each formula and result that we use in Mathematics, rather than just teaching how to apply this to a question.
With my more able students, i even encourage the student to derive these results themselves, with some assistance, where necessary.
In recent years, Mathematics examinations at GCE and A-level have tended to increase in difficulty and i feel, now more than ever, the extra understanding afforded by learning in this manner is of paramount importance in setting my students up for the more difficult questions on their paper; when an unfamiliar or particularly difficult question appears in a paper, students with a deep understanding will be more able to adapt than students who have just been 'taught to the examination.'

I think students perform the best when they are the most engaged in what they are learning, when they can connect their learning to things they already love, whether that’s activities, interests or hobbies. The most important aspect of private tuition, in my view, is that i develop a relationship with my students which goes beyond the teacher-pupil arrangement, so they can grow in confidence with the knowledge that they have a mentor to support them both academically and in personal development.
