Experienced SAT Math Tutor.

I always guide my SAT students towards reaching solutions themselves rather than spoonfeeding them with answers and ideas because this only leads to cram work. In my experience, my method results in more profound understanding and far greater long-term learning and is well worth the initial extra effort in order to establish a solid fundamental grasp of the topic at hand.

This also allows for specific areas of difficulty to come to light quickly so that they can be targeted directly in highly-tailored tutoring sessions. This approach of mine has always made my students achieve high scores in their SAT maths.

Prepclass Tutor Since: November 2014

My name is Otuniyi, I am a graduate of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from the University of Lagos.


Over the years I have taught Mathematics to both Junior and Senior Secondary School students and have also tutored students for standardized examinations in the Quantitative section of GMAT GRE and SAT who Scored very high in these examinations.

Teaching is something I am passionate about and a channel with which I add value to others. The goal is to improve the student's ability and/or to meet examination standards using carefully selected examples and various teaching methods.


Having worked with a great number of students, I have found out that students learn and make sense of their subjects in very particular ways. As such i always try to match my teaching style with the learning style of my student. I have a great interest in learning strategies and understanding the myriad of ways in which students absorb information.


I am very patient when it comes to reiterating what has been taught till the students have a solid grasp on what has been taught.

    For each examination preparatory class I teach, I carry along materials to help jog the student's memory because students have lots of facts, figures and theories to remember. They may be forgetting all important points about a subject, so it’s important they understand how memory works. A lot of students have the misconception that reading over the material repeatedly results in good memory, not knowing that the key to a better memory is testing and applying the knowledge by going through past questions. I teach them how to revise on their own. Then I advise them to do away with stress and anxiety because mental health is also an important key to success.
