Experienced Mathematics Tutor

When teaching Mathematics, i have had particular success teaching students who are struggling to get to grips with Mathematical concepts and calculations.

I am patient and flexible when explaining concepts, and use my students' strengths and interests to find explanations which they can understand. I have helped many students to overcome these challenges when they have been falling behind at school, both in primary school, when preparing for Common Entrance and GCE.

Prepclass Tutor Since: June 2016

My name is Okoye. I am a graduate of Yaba College of Technology where I studied Electrical Engineering.I have seven years experience teaching Mathematics.

My style of teaching involves giving a short lecture about the fundamentals of the topic, then gradually covering advanced topics. I continuously question my students in order to help them reach the answers themselves and to make sure that they are keeping up with the material.

I will provide all the material for test preparations, however, if you have your own curriculum and material I'd be happy to work with that as well.

I have several years of experience tutoring middle and high school students in Mathematics classes from Algebra I through Pre-Calculus, mostly assisting students in completing homework assignments, preparing for tests, and understanding material from class.

Since i majored in Mathematics and have studied other sciences in both undergraduate and graduate school, i can tutor in any Mathematics subject from Elementary school Mathematics through college-level Mathematics and statistics courses.

I love to tutor because i love helping students achieve a breakthrough where they understand something that previously confused them.

I find joy in working with students to boost their confidence and their appreciation for and interest in mathematics, and i want to help my students reach their goals and master the material.

    My approach to teaching Mathematics concentrates on the importance of both structure and creativity. Firstly, i help my students to improve their memorizing skills if necessary, using exercises to increase the accuracy and fluency of their calculation structure. I then stretch students to think critically and creatively about texts, formulas, equations and implementation process. At the same time, i help my students to find ways that suit them of systematically planning and structuring topics for coursework and examinations.
