About Olufunke

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.

Great tutor!! Professional and caring. — 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 progres ...
