About Oluwamide

Tutoring is about more than just improving test scores or making the student feel good about themselves. It's a form of academic mentorship: you will be teaching someone how to learn and think about the world around them. This is a quite a responsibility, and few people really get how imperative it is to prepare the student for different ways of thinking about problems, not just their solutions. Diversity in thought processes and open minded teaching are the tools that when paired with rigor and practice produce better thinkers. That's the real job of a tutor (and a teacher really) to produce better thinkers and better people. Ideally, if one does their job correctly, the student should never struggle with the subject matter again: they should come to the tutor to discuss ideas new to them and their applications to the problems the student is tackling. This is closer to a college/graduate level relationship with the tutor instead of a high school/elementary school relationship.

This is what is emphasized at my College, at least: the life of the mind. I've scored perfectly on the ACT Math section and am currently self-teaching Galois Theory, so you can be sure you are in skilled hands when I tutor you in Mathematics.

I currently attend the University of Chicago, and will be graduating in the fall as a Biology major. I will add more sciences to my profile and further qualifications, and I will also add Essay Consultation (I do this for a company called College Vine).

From high school to college admissions, I am knowledgeable about all parts of the processes students undertake as gateways to higher learning. Ask me questions if (I have the opportunity to tutor you) outside of the domain I'm tutoring you in for some academic and career advice. You can reach out to me through Wyzant at any time (I'm usually up reading or researching). We can talk about any ideas or concepts you've been thinking about, academic or research related.

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.
