When teaching Mathematics, i am extremely patient and encouraging.
I always make sure my student feel they have gained confidence to independently approach any topic i help them with in order to build their self-belief and autonomy.
My name is Sopekan. I am a Second Class Upper Division graduate of Industrial Chemistry from Olabisi Onabanjo University. I also have a Diploma Degree in Education.
Having five years experience teaching Mathematics and Basic Science, my teaching methods varies with each of my student i work with.
However, in the first stages i believe it is essential to ascertain the immediate needs of my students, and discover where they think my help is most required. Once established, i encourage them to be as honest as possible throughout the teaching process by meeting them on their level, supporting an atmosphere of vocal and written exploration, and above all, inspiring them to learn and be confident in their learning.
I prefer active learning rather than lecturing my students, for example, getting them to teach me what they have just learnt. I believe this helps my student's learning, and i tailor these practices to the needs and abilities of my students.

I believe one-to-one tutoring to be an incredibly important aspect of education. Tutoring offers a great environment in which to learn and for confidence to grow, allowing my student to quickly gain a strong development in the specific subject area. For each of my student, i design the tutorials to best develop their specific learning and concentration ability, with a view towards gaining context and understanding of the subject in preparation for examination. I am an understanding, empathetic and fun tutor who is patient and able to vary the ways in which to learn.
