About Teko

I have tutored college students in Math (chemistry and Physics as well) since February 2012 at a community college, as one of the hired professional tutors. I also took Calculus 1 and 2 during my college prerequisite years. I had several home and library appointments where I met with college and high school students for one-on-one tutoring. The usual compliments I receive have been that I break the Math down and make it look so easy. I guess I'm really good at that. I know how to get it through to students thanks to the recurring nature of the college and high school Math tutoring course contents over the past years. Math was my best course in High School and I finished as the only student in my school with an A-grade in the national High School finals exam back in my country of origin (Cameroon - Central Africa). I have a Bachelors in Chemistry (2007) and am now a student pharmacist. I had this one student who had me tutoring her for over three years until she left Chicago for college in another state. She was very thankful for those past years. I enjoy one-on-one tutoring as I take it as a responsibility to transfer my knowledge to make my student a better and Math-loving person. Get me and you will live to be good at Math forever.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Soccer

I am originally from a soccer-loving nation in Africa, called Cameroon. I played in all positions growing up, starting as goalkeeper and defending, and turning into a midfielder/attacker by age 14. I captained the school team while in high school and later played for my university. I also played at the second highest level in my country before sustaining a left knee injury for a contact with the opposing goalkeeper. I played indoors soccer with a seniors team at a sports complex in Lynwood when I came to Chicago in October 2012. I just play now on a random base. I still possess my soccer freestyle skills as I trained and played as a striker for over ten years. I'm 35 now.
