I obtained B.Sc (Hons.) Physics degree from the then University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) IleIfe, Nigeria in 1968. I then taught Physics at Comprehensive High School Aiyetoro Nigeria from then to 1976.

I registered for M.Sc. Physics degree with Research dissertation on Positron Annihilation in Liquid and Solid Thalium in 1971, and obtained the degree in 1972 from the Western Washington University Bellinghan, WA, USA.

I also registered for Ph.D Solid state Physics degree in 1979 at the University of Southampton, England and obtained the degree in 1983.

In the period spanning 1976 to 2008, I taught Physics at the, Polytechnic Ibadan, Olabisi Onabanjo University AgoIwoye, University of Agriculture Abeokuta, Untversity of Technology akure,and University of Lbadan, all in Nigeria. Also, since settling down permanently in USA from 2008 to date, I have taught Math/Physics at Essex County College Newark, and Physics at Kean University Union, both in NJ.

Some of the administrative posts held as part of my work experirnce include, Head of Physics Department, Dean of Faculty of Science, and Director of Satellite campus at the Polytechnic Ibadan; and Head of Physics Depsrtment at Olabisi Onabanjo University Ago Iwoye.

Algebra 1

I have spent many years learning, tutoring and teaching in the area of science that involves application of algebra. Algebra 1 involves more difficult concepts than in prealgebra. It will take more time to master the techniques. Hence, with patience, I will make sure that my students devote more time to solving problems.This will instill in them the necessary confidence to enable them pass the exam.

####
Algebra 2

As a major in Physics from the University, I was exposed to many important areas of algebra. I have taught the subject in high school, and also tutored many students in the college. I am familiar with the requirements in college, GED and SAT exams. I shall ensure that students tutored by me are taken through many worked examples to build in them the confidence required for passing such exams.

####
Calculus

Being a teacher of Physics with several years of teaching experience, I have taught and tutored many students in calculus. I have used many word problems to illustrate many concepts in calculus . I am familiar with the requirements in GED and SAT exams.I can definitely tutor students to excel in both exams. I studied for my graduate programs at West Wash. State Univ USA and Southampton University England, respectively.

####
Geometry

This branch of Mathematics deals with the description of shapes, sizes and spatial relationships of figures.It therefore consists of concepts and axioms that are not easily perceived by students.I am able to realize this from my teaching and tutoring experiences over the years. It needs patience and devotion to allow the students to grasp these concepts properly.I am familiar with the requirements in SAT and GED exams, and I shall make sure that students work through several exam questions to...

Physics

My whole academic career has been majorly in Physics, having studied the subject at undergraduate and graduate levels to obtain a Ph.D degree. I have also taught the subject at High School, College, and University, including Essex County College Newark, and Kean University Union, NJ. I have served as an examiner for international body like West African Examination Council (WAEC, examining students for an equivalent of GED). I also have the patience to cooperate with the student to ensure that...

Prealgebra

Prealgebra

Discussion of the subject will start from the real number system. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division will follow, using signed numbers including integers. Fractions, decimals, exponents, graphs,and first order variable expression/equation will be considered. Several problems including multistep eqautions requiring order will be discussed.Consummer applications like ratio,per cent, proportion,and word problems will be discussed. This will be extended to polynomial,...

Precalculus

Trigonometry and Algebra form substantial parts of this course. I always ensure that the students that I tutor on the subject are exposed to several worked sample problems to build necessary confidence that will empower them to pass the exam. And this I will do with utmost patience.

####
Trigonometry

This subject is applied in many areas of science and mathematics. I have taught the course in high school, and tutored many students in private and when teaching Physics on many occasions. I am also familiar with the requirements for the subject in SAT and GED exams. I studied and graduated for the graduate programs at West Wash univ USA and Southampton University England.

####
Linear Algebra

This is a more advanced algebraic course that is usually taught in the colleges and universities. It is very useful in the fields of Engineering, computer science, and the sciences that is, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy, and Geophysics. It enables the vector space to be extended beyond the conventional 3D space, and with the applications of matrix, determinant, mapping, etc, several otherwise complex problems can be solved. I was exposed to Linear Algebra course in the graduate school...
