About Efe

As a child, mathematics was a beast to battle. However, with determined parents, dedicated and persistent math teachers throughout the years, I graduated with honors from college with one of my majors being mathematics. This accomplishment has taught me the significance of having people in my life that have shown commitment to my success, and I now want to be one of those people in someone else’s life through my tutoring.

As a licensed math teacher, I have experience teaching middle school math. I also tutored math in high school and continued tutoring math and computer programming for a year in college, where I graduated with a double major in mathematics and management information systems, and a minor in computer science. My teaching and past tutoring experiences have taught me to be patient, optimistic, energetic and steadfast. They have also taught me to be creative as people learn differently and allowed me to explore my adaptability to different learning styles. I am still currently a Middle School Mathematics teacher also earning my master’s in teaching and am gaining worlds of knowledge that I believe benefits me as a tutor.

Before beginning any tutoring session, I like to meet in person or online to clearly identify and define the expectations you have in terms of learning. I like to learn a little more about you and/or your child. This helps me try to understand what your/or your child’s learning style may be and effectively prepare for our tutoring sessions, creatively incorporating techniques that may appeal more to the learning style.

If your expectation is to help you or your child keep on top of math, writing and/or computer school work, I will provide the energy, patience and encouragement needed to keep you or your child motivated and focused on getting work done.

If you are in need of a helping hand with understanding math or computer school work, I will create a plan that:
1) assesses you or your child’s learning targets,
2) continuously improves and responds to you or your child to ensure that you or your child reaches the learning targets,
3) provides encouraging and motivating feedback each time you or your child reaches a learning target.

Allow me to be a form of support and encouragement through my tutoring.

Hope to hear from you soon! I will make sure to respond within 24 hours.

True Teaching Spirit — My son, who is an 8th grader, has been struggling with Math. Having not retained some of the basics: long division, multiplication rules, fractions, the current material, Algebra and Geometry have been a huge frustration. We reached out to Efe, who responded almost immediately. She assessed the situation and came up with a game plan. Efe felt that he was perhaps a visual learner, so she structured ...
