Senior Secondary School Biology Tutor
Home tutor in Yaba, Lagos
I have worked privately with several students to teach rudimentary apects of biology and chemistry and also prepared them for local and international examinations with distinctions. I won the best Biology and Chemistry teacher in Deluxe College, Surulere where 90% of my students achieved A's in 2017/2018 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Exam (WASSCE) and National Examination Council (NECO).
My main focus is ensuring my students understand the fundamental cornerstones of these topics so that they may then delve into the more complex ideas. I always encourage my students to forge an intellectual path that best suits their study habits (i.e. visual learners versus auditory learners) and I will always motivate them to do their absolute best in any subject that I tutor.
Overall, it is my objective and duty to make certain that my students understand concepts more deeply, rather than memorizing information they will quickly forget after a test passes.
