About the lesson
I get to know the level of understanding of the student in any topic to be taught so that I can know where he or she is weak. To achieve this, I consider the student's level, learning pace, and interests.
I have multiple teaching methods I use depending on which method works best for a particular student. I take things step-by-step to make sure the student understands better. The best teaching method for a student will improve his or her overall performance. I apply patience and friendliness when teaching students at their level until I can bring out the best in them.
National Common Entrance Examination (NCEE)
I graduated with a Second Class Upper in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. In addition to this, I have a Distinction in Mathematics in Senior School Certificate. I have been teaching Mathematics since my days in high school. Mathematics is something I do naturally, and I enjoy it. I have tutored over 100 students in Mathematics. Most of my students have achieved outhandling performances in their various examinations.
I always try to make every student I teach have a deep understanding of the subject. I allow students to learn at their pace and learn what they need to know. With a proper understanding of mathematical concepts, learning Mathematics becomes interesting and enjoyable.

Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).

Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
In one of my maths classes in secondary school, one of my fellow students asked my teacher how he "managed" to get a certain number in a problem he was solving.

She was later clarified on the issue.
