In these confusing moments of Covid-19, schools are closed and parents are busy looking for reliable sources of education for their children. Online classrooms have come in handy for children and parents.
Many websites have been established to meet the demand for online lessons. Many tutors have had to quickly adapt to the demand and supply chain curve as none can survive without the other. Adapting to change has become the norm as the teachers are stretching an arm and leg to ensure that their students succeed and that their education is not curtailed.
One such website is Scopebenja Mathametics Gurus Centre. Benjamin Kimuyu is one such teacher who is cashing in on educating the future generation. To ensure that children do not lag behind or lose on important lessons, he has come up with a tutoring website where he offers lessons for school going children in primary and secondary school.
With his outstanding knowledge, he has partnered with well qualified teachers. His undying commitment to education has seen him win awards for his exemplary teaching.
“As a well-renowned private teacher in Kenya, I have been serving as an academic professional in a number of different schools since 2010 and together with other leading teachers we are providing continuous online teaching and revision materials,” says Kimuyu.
Getting dedicated and qualified teachers is not an easy task. But when one comes along; it is good to grab the opportunity with both hands lest the chance to provide your child with the best education slip by.
“I use everyday experiences and the environment to explain mathematical concepts that are perceived as difficult by students,” he says. His rule of thumb is only to leave class after students have asked questions. Not many teachers pay that keen attention.
Most teachers only go to class to get paid, but Benjamin Kimuyu says he make sure that students grasp the real concept before they leave the room. That is the level of dedication he has for his students, making sure all understand and move together as a pack without leaving anyone behind.
People have different talents and hobbies. Some people turned their hobbies and talents into careers while others have careers just because it is a means to earn a living. But it is important to love what we do because as they say, “If you do what you love you will never work in your life.”
