Numerical Reasoning Tutor
SHL is an occupational psychology consultancy that is used by thousands of organisations around the world.
It offers a wide spectrum of services that help large corporations to assess their job candidates.
In my tutoring sessions for this course, I find out what job level my student is preparing for. That is, if it's for the graduate level or the senior management level as this determines the level of difficulty of the examination/test as well.
I assess my student initially to know the areas/topics that prove the most challenging, we work on grasping the basic concepts of those topics and then apply them to revision questions.
Once all topics have been covered, we will make use of materials/revision questions to ensure the student is thoroughly grounded and knows what is expected in the examinations.
I conduct mock examinations/tests on my students to also help them know the level of their preparedness.
We would also take into consideration the fact that the examination is a time based one and as such, every second counts so in our tutorial sessions, we would work on also effectively managing the time.
I have more than 7 years experience of providing personal tutorship internationally and locally to different education cadres ranging from Postgraduate to undergraduate to post UTME to A level, SAT, GMAT, SHL, IGCSE, GRE and secondary level students.
As an educator, I am hugely enthusiastic about all my subjects and believe it is vital to create a supportive, enjoyable and productive learning environment for students.
I have also understood the different methods and strategies on how to eliminate the fear of learning with my students, I give my students a deeper understanding of subject concepts and encourage them to be curious and interested in the subject that is being taught. This helps them excel at the tougher topics and styles of questions, and ultimately gives that edge required to get the top grades.
For me, it is very vital that my students gain a comprehensive understanding of how to decipher examination questions and the way they are marked and it is equally important for the student feel confident, calm and capable when under these examination conditions.
I totally understand how terrifying these examinations can be, for this reason, we will start from the basics depending on the proficiency level of student, we would work on practice/past questions on whatever exam they are preparing for. The essence of this is to help my students understand the format of the kind of questions they are to expect when they actually sit for the examination.
We would do mock tests, to also help with their time management skills because all of these examinations are also time based.
I am flexible in my approach, I have a good knowledge of curriculum and exam board specifications. I am passionate about what I teach, and strive to promote a love of learning in my students.
