IGCSE Chemistry Tutor
I have always had a flair for learning and teaching Chemistry. The results are evident in the five students I taught last IGCSE who had A's in the subject.
My philosophy as a Chemistry teacher is to make the subject as simple and relevant to everyday life through examples as much as possible. Of course, the stoichiometry aspect is there, which may not be as easy to translate to day-to-day activities, however, the knowledge of the appropriate formula to use in specific concepts would help a student excel in the exam effortlessly whilst building a foundation for either A-level or University courses where the understanding of the concepts learned would be needed.
With this philosophical approach to teaching the subject, relevant texts, past test papers and a lot of practice time on the part of the students, I am always elated and encouraged to continue to give my best when I see my students excel in their Chemistry exams.

A passionate and dedicated educator who seeks to deliver effective teaching using diverse contemporary approaches (e-learning/ instructional technology) to make concepts real and interesting to learners as well as to meet the dynamic demands of the educational system. I have had the experience of teaching children of different age-groups ranging from the Primary level to the Secondary level for eight (8) years. Teaching, to me, is more than an enterprise but an art I am very passionate about. My goal is to channel this passion and energy into the teaching of Chemistry and Mathematics using diverse approaches to make it real and interesting. I am a graduate of Chemistry Education from the University of Benin. I have participated in several training like the British Council'sTKT (Teaching Knowledge Tests) - Band 3 and Understanding Dyslexia: A Guide for Teachers which has equipped me to become a better educator.
