About Felix


Bio

I'm Felix. I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering and I am presently in a PhD program in Computer Science. My love for mathematics was enhanced by my father, a Professor of Economics since it was the core of the economic principles like demand, supply and utility. During my University education, my love for teaching was further developed as I always served as his unofficial Teaching Assistant.

I'm Felix. I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering and I am presently in a PhD program in Computer Science. My love for mathematics was enhanced by my father, a Professor of Economics since it was the core of the economic principles like demand, supply and utility. During my University education, my love for teaching was further developed as I always served as his unofficial Teaching Assistant.
My middle, high school and college education was reveled with success stories of helping friends and colleagues break out of this mentality of mediocrity and go on to attain higher heights in their career. The joy and fulfillment this experience gave me cannot be encapsulated in words. My expertise in mathematics has also rewarded me in several ways. Since majority of the aptitude tests for selecting best students are mathematics inclined, I won four scholarships during my high school and college education. Just last year, my quest to proceed to the United States for my PhD in Computer Science and Engineering was aided by my excellent scores in the quantitative test of the Graduate Records Examination (GRE). I have also been a Math/SAT tutor in the US for about a year and my students and parents love my services. I am also a Teaching Assistant in the university where I am studying. I have taken group classes of about 5 – 10 students for SAT preparatory classes and I have also taken students math classes across grades 7- 12

I have had the privilege of teaching mathematics both at the high school level and the university level. For over four years as a lecturer in Covenant University, Nigeria, I taught Engineering Mathematics to third year students. The topics covered include linear algebra (matrices, determinants, Eigen values and Eigen vectors), calculus and differential equations. These problems were also tackled in another course where we used engineering software’s like MATLAB. The advantage I have as an engineer is that beyond teaching principles of mathematics, I can relate to my students how the learning outcomes of the concepts help solve real life problems. This therefore helps to stimulate their interests.

I am aware that many students have a phobia for mathematics and my methods help in eliminating such fears and making them confident in their ability to solve problems. Whilst keeping my students focus on the big picture, I make them appreciate the progresses they make on a daily basis. With my ability to pass across my lessons in a friendly environment, my students can learn very quickly. I have numerous testimonies from my students and I am sure I can repeat this feat with any new client. I love to learn and I love to help others learn.
