Senior Secondary School Chemistry Tutor
Home tutor in Eti Osa, Lagos
Chemistry Tutor with 8 years experience
I have been teaching chemistry for the past eight years with a relative amount of success. In this period, I have prepared students for their internal examinations as well as external examinations like WAEC, UTME, PUTME, NABTEB, NECO, and GCE. I also have experience in preparing students for competitions and scholarship examinations.
Chemistry is taught in two aspect which are the theoretical aspect and the practical aspect which i have in depth knowledge and also have experience in teaching the concepts that seems difficult and confusing to the student. In the course of teaching, I mastered the art of motivating my students and lifting their spirit so they can deliver with optimum performance.
I was opportune to teach in an adult education school for about two years, this experience helped to be able to teach adult students as well.
The use of media in teaching is one of my best features because it helps both the teacher and the learner especially in chemistry where some reactions and experiments cannot be carried out in the laboratory or can not be seen with the naked eyes.
I believe there is no dull learner therefore in order to learn i try to study my student and know which teaching / learning style suits them, what kind of environment can they thrive and many other factors that will bring the best out of them. I take this information analyze it and then create a great experience for my learner. On a final note, in order to push any human to their limits 'Motivation Is Key'.
I am a graduate of basic science education from the University of Lagos. I also obtained a Master of Education in educational technology which focuses primarily on instructional delivery which has helped in dispensing information based on the learners learning style.
I have been teaching for the past 5 years and currently work at federal science and technical college, yaba, Lagos. I have prepared students for both internal and external examinations in subjects such as chemistry, physics, mathematics, basic science.
I believe every child is special in his or her own way and can perform excellently if given the right harnessing. This ideology pushes me to not just believe in myself as a competent tutor but also believe in my students ability that no matter how bad the learning situation might be they will excel.
