About Chioma

I was born in Lagos Nigeria and moved to the United States about sixteen years ago. I graduated from Lake Norman Charter School earlier this year and currently, I am a student at Wingate University as a pre-pharmacy major.

It took a lot of work for me to get here. After struggling repeatedly through my middle school years, I've come to sympathize with younger kids who may require a bit of extra help in order to achieve their goals. When I had to help teach my little brother to read, I gained a new respect for the effort and challenges that come with encouraging kids to both learn on their own while helping them parse through the classroom's material. Luckily for the both of us, we had the fortune of teachers and mentors who cared about us and heavily impacted the way we looked at the world.

As a result of my experiences I went on to volunteer tutor for almost two years at the public library. I professionally tutored APUSH students for another year before coming onto Wyzant. My focus was to ultimately help many inner city elementary and middle school children bring up their math and reading standards. I have also mentored children who have needed test prep on the SAT and PSAT reading exam.

If you ever want to know when you're going to need something, feel free to ask. I keep myself as available and open as possible.

At the end of the day, not only did I score a 720 on my SAT reading section, I have coached many kids on the skills necessary to succeed in the tests, Using a series of timed rundowns, reviews, and one-on-one quizzing, I was able to get students ready for the reading portion of the SAT.

I was selected for the Duke TIP experience in middle school and have taken the PSAT twice. I asked to give coaching to some younger children within the community who also planned to assess their skills. Not only did we prepare for the PSAT, we went over the test afterward and dealt with addressing any weakness or shortcomings in the test.

After receiving a 5 on my on AP US History Exam, I spent time with other students going over the concepts and topics needed to master the subject. We used a variety of tools ranging from worksheets from my own personal textbook (which I will provide,) to a basic and personalized lecture style, to even the Crash Course videos found on Youtube.

I encourage any student to send me questions immediately if they are struggling with anything. I will help with study tips, homework answers, research and essay writing, and even review material. Please shoot me a message if you need any sort of help at all, I promise I will get an answer for you within the day barring any sort of emergency.

It took tutors to get me to the level I am now and I will happily pay it forward.


*My hobbies include drawing and reading though I should mention I am a massive superhero comics, anime and manga, and Star Wars fan. I'm one heck of a fandom friendly tutor and I strongly believe that tying in some pop culture can enhance the learning experience.

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.

American History

I tutored high school juniors for about a year in AP US History after making a five on my own exam. I also provide the information from my textbooks that I used in the class, along with interactive materials to break up the monotony of a typical lecture style.

Elementary Math

My primary tutoring experience was actually with both elementary and middle school kids with a focus that ranged from basic math to beginning algebra. In terms of studying materials I utilized digital worksheets, one on one lecturing, and proficiency tests. Because I was well aware of the insecurity many children face in dealing with math for the first time, I made sure to encourage and celebrate any achievements or successes the students made, no matter how small.

After finishing up volunteer work with elementary kids last year at the local library before leaving off to college, I can confidentiality say, I do care about the success of my students.

Prealgebra

My primary tutoring experience was actually with both elementary and middle school kids with a focus that ranged from basic math to beginning algebra.

SAT Reading

I spent about a year tutoring students in the SAT reading section. I mostly focused on goal attainment, speed comprehension, and time management. Depending on what score my students were aiming for, I always made sure to tailor the lessons specifically to the students and pinpointed where their weakness were. To me it didn't matter whether the student was crash studying for had preparing for months, we both worked to find things to improve.
