Senior Secondary School Further Mathematics Tutor
My teaching style is one that helps the student to develop the idea, instead of teaching how students how they should think. I have found that individuals tend to remember mathematical concepts better when they discover the explanation. My tutoring style is one that mimics this teaching philosophy. I am not one who gives answers, rather, help the student find the answer. I feel that one-on-one interaction can sometimes better address the needs of a student than teaching to a large group. This interaction will allow us to dig into the material so that you will understand the concepts when it comes time to take an exam.
I enjoy teaching various levels of mathematics whether you have needs to understand basic math concepts or help understanding more advanced theoretical mathematics. I am always ready to explore new ideas and look for new ways to teach a subject.
My name is Osike, I am an HND holder in Mathematics and Statistics ( upper credit) from Yaba College of Technology. By virtue of my outstanding performance, I have had to tutor a wide range of students from primary through secondary level, always with remarkable results.
I prepared students for Oct/Nov IGCSE in Mathematics and Additional Mathematics and they came out in top grades.
I teach to build my student's confidence and mastery of topics, following the school's or exams curriculum. I explain each topic thoroughly and we tackle a lot of questions together, as well as review what we've learnt at the end of each week and month. I work hard to try and develop a 'safe' environment where students feel confident enough to ask as many questions as they need.
The more I have studied the more I have become aware of the importance of the learning style of each individual and I believe a teacher should try to adapt to the student as best they can. The best results are therefore achieved when both the student and teacher work together to understand and compliment the learning process of the student

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. Through my encouraging and animated approach to tutorials, I aim to instil a passion in my students, so that they will respond to such exercises with enthusiasm and confidence.
