Personal Description:

My name is Osvaldo

I have been a private tutor since 2010, mostly teaching Pure Mathematics level. Since then I have helped over 60 students achieve their potential, gradually developing a reputation as good tutor. Most recently I have work as Electrical Project 2 tutor and now I'm working as lecture assistant of electrical principles 1 at Durban University of Technology.
Outside my tutoring I work as a work as volunteer to help people to understand the bible, writing poetry and novel.
My teaching was consistently rated ‘outstanding’ by both staff and students.

Tutoring Experience:

During my academic career, I managed to accrue 1 year of Tutoring. I had the privilege of being tutor for Electrical Project 2 in Durban University of Technology; where I learned valuable Teaching skills such as how to deal with students, help them to understand the subject and how to write technical reports. 2 years as electrical machine and Mathematics teacher in technical high school in Luanda as well. In both my academic and work integral learning life, I have been consistently praised as hard working by my lectures and students.
So far I'm Lecture assistant of electrical principles 1 at Durban university

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems.
My approach varies depending on the student’s needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually. I don’t lecture to students or ask them to memorise things. Nor do I do the students’ homework for them!
I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.
