About Segun

I have a doctorate in History, and I never feel more cheerful than after teaching a class and feeling that I have imparted knowledge in the students in the class. Therefore, I see teaching/tutoring as my calling and avocation. It is my strong belief that every student can learn if given the right opportunity. I believe in mixing up my teaching based on the material, rather than trying to fit the material into the same pedagogical box. To this end I try to make sure my students easily relate to what I teach. One aspect of teaching that I find particularly fulfilling is the chance to simplify historical narratives that students typically find complicated.
I communicate clearly and effectively; I have a good grasp of the material I teach; and I have an engaging personality.

My teaching philosophy is that every student can excel if given the right opportunity and support. Teaching and interacting with students are strengths I have cultivated in the past, especially during my graduate training and teaching assistantship. In addition, WyZAnt's emphasis on excellence aligns with my desire to tutor and help foster meaningful dialogue with students in general. Specifically, the position will allow me to utilize my natural and learned skills, problem-solving abilities, interest in student-related issues, and experience running large international conferences while working in a conducive school environment.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a Senior Academic Tutor at an Elementary School in Houston, where I tutored student in 3rd-5th Grades in Math and prepared them for STAAR tests. Also, I also tutor Elementary (K-6th) Reading, Spelling, Vocabulary, and Social Studies. It is my strong belief that every student can learn if given the right opportunity. I believe in mixing up my tutoring based on the material, rather than trying to fit the material into the same box. To this end, I try to make sure my students easily relate to what I tutor. One aspect of tutoring that I find particularly fulfilling is the chance to simplify subjects that students typically find complicated.

Social Studies

I believe I am qualified to tutor the subject because of my qualifications and experience. I have a degree in history and I just took and passed a state required exam for social studies teachers, Social Studies 7-12. Lastly, I tutored social studies previously.

World History

I have a doctorate in African History, but I am well-grounded to teach World History. I was a teaching assistant for six years at the University of Texas at Austin, where I set and graded students exams, held office hours to help students with their study guides, held review sessions for exams, and I also taught occasionally.
