Rutgers University (Mathematics)
Though I have a B.S. in Computer Science but the love and passion I have for Math made me to go back to school to major in Math. Now I am armed with a B.A. in Math (graduated with a 4.0 GPA and three math awards from Rutgers University) and the New Jersey Teacher of Mathematics Certificate. I also tutored Calculus and Algebra at Rutgers University Learning Center. I do not just have a profound knowledge of Math, I am also very skilled at communicating this knowledge to my students in ways they can relate to. I use everyday things to make Math come alive for my students. Presently I teach 8th grade Math as well as Algebra 1 in a public school district.
I understand that people learn in different ways and at different rates so I tailor my lessons to meet the particular needs and styles of my students. I am very patient and I motivate my students to do their best and more. I know the power of positive reinforcement and I utilize this to build student's confidence and self-esteem. I have helped many lose their fear of Math and come to truly enjoy the subject. This is attested to by the remarkable improvements in their grades.

Olufunke was very patient and available to work with me. She helped me so much and I managed to get the score that I need to get on the GRE test because of her. I took the test twice before I asked for help and both times, I did not understand a thing about the math questions and failed it. After I meet Olufunke, I was more confident about the math session. She is kind and cares about your progress. We worked on different types of math. She gave me different practice materials and she was willing to help me when things were not clear to me. She will work with you and she will go above and beyond to make sure that you are understanding the material. I had a positive experience with Olufunke and she is so prepared in math that I felt I was in good hands since the start. I will definitely incourage people to ask for her help if you need help in math. She knows her material well and she is very professional. Math was a lot of fun with her and I learned so many tricks that I still use when I go shopping or I need to get a results fast without using the calculator. I am so happy that I met her.
If any of my friends need help in math I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Olufunke.
My son really enjoyed his first tutoring session with Olufunke. She was patient and helped him work through over 45 Algebra problems in 2 hours. She cheered him on and made the session enjoybale. He is already looking forward to his next session. I am confident that Olufunke will be a great study partner for my son.
Olunfunke is a fabulous math tutor. It is her combination of skills that make her such. It starts with her depth of Pure Mathematics which means she completely understands the logic behind solving math problems at all levels from elementary through undergraduate college. She is very patient and easy to get along with. And she also goes above and beyond standard tutor duties in that she becomes very personally involved in the success of the student. She is invaluable.
Ms. O was extremely patient and helped my daughter so much. It's not often that you find a teacher that really cares and she does!! She has inspired my daughter to not only understand prealgebra but excel. I thank her so much from the bottom of my hear.
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.
