Through my experience teaching, i have discovered that different approaches often suits different students. With some needing a focus on exam technique and style, others requiring confidence building, but most needing to develop a fluency in whichever subject they are studying through total immersion. In Computer Science, this might include ensuring they are up to date with the latest developments in Computer and linking this to the syllabus that my students are studying.
My name is Okafor. I am a graduate of Computer Science from Babcock University.
My approach varies hugely depending on the student i am tutoring.
However i think something which unifies it across the range of ages and abilities is that i always try to break down what seem like huge, daunting subjects or assignments into smaller, manageable, non-scary, fun tasks.
Having over 2 years experienced in teaching Computer Science and Mathematics it enables me work closely with each student, to determine the ways in which they learn best, their interests, strengths and weaknesses, and feed this back into my tutoring methods, creating a tailor-made learning experience.
My methods are of course, also informed by a thorough understanding of assessment requirements and criteria both for school entrance examinations and public examinations.
I believe that a positive and confident attitude towards the academic subject being studied can be hugely beneficial in terms of results, and i try to engender this by providing a supportive yet challenging relationship and environment for study.
I enjoy tutoring each of the subjects i teach, and hope that i can transmit my enthusiasm and energy to my students.

I aim to pass on to my students, the benefits of organisation. Not just in the practical sense of effective note taking and filing but also in relation to a students ability to organize their own thoughts. A well organised mind is much more adept at problem solving, because it grants students the ability to take a step back and see the bigger picture. I help my students to do this by talking often and in depth with them about problem solving in general and how we can apply the same techniques across a huge range of subjects and questions. It has often been said that education is less about learning facts by rote and more about training yourself to think about the world in a different (and hopefully more useful) way.
