Experienced Accounting Tutor

The methodology and pace may sometimes vary, but the constant in my tutoring is a sympathetic, calm but challenging manner.

My tutoring aims to instill confidence, both in Accounting and on my students, but also in their general Educational and personal development. The aim of my approach is not just to tick boxes on a syllabus or repair specific faults, though both are often necessary components of my work: I set out to not so much teach my students, as to work with them.

About

Prepclass Tutor Since: July 2016

My name is Patrick. I am graduate of Accountancy from the University of Lagos, and i also have a certificate in Education (Business Education).

I have seven years experience teaching Economics, Commerce and Accounting to both in Primary and Secondary schools, and i have tutored about 50 different students for WAEC, GCE, NECO, IGSCE and Cambridge examination of which they all passed excellently.

This has been made possible through the application of a dynamic and structured student based teaching-learning methodology.

I firmly believe that no subject, however daunting, is too difficult for my student. My job and favorite activity is to find that relatable example or way of looking at a topic that can unlock complex material for a learner.

Thanks to my previous experience as, i have experience doing this at all levels of Secondary school Commercial subjects.

For me, the crucial starting point when tutoring is engaging my student’s interest. One-to-one tutoring is a unique opportunity to tailor teaching to the character and needs of an individual learner.

Every student’s mind works differently, and framing a subject in a way that excites that particular young person helps them find the energy and confidence to achieve.

Once a student is engaged, my priority is pushing and expanding their understanding in line with the relevant syllabus. I design a scheme of work for each of my student that solidly structures their learning and rigorously enables them in the demands of assessments.

    I think it is vital to be able to tailor each set of lessons to the needs of the individual student. Everybody learns in a variety of ways, and as such, i am always on the look out for new techniques and ideas to help me in my teaching. That said, i am always committed to helping my students develop their confidence as i believe that if someone is to work successfully they need to firmly believe in their capacity to improve. I like to encourage a relaxed but focused working environment with a friendly and engaging style.
