British Senior Secondary School Physics Tutor
Without much Ado, I must say passing Physics might appear difficult in the absence of the necessary guidance. Moreover, I can say with all confidence gathered from years of experience that students fail more because of lack of understanding of the differences between the two curricula. On a general note, the curriculum in Nigeria is subject centered and has its emphasis on the 'theoretical knowledge acquisition' but the British curriculum sees 'theory as a means to an end and not the end itself' They emphasize theory as much as it has viable relevance to practical application.
There are major concerns and note every student must keep to heart.
1. Rote-memorization or didactic learning approach will never work. You have to understand the concept, imagine its applications, try applying it , then absorb or internalize based on your understanding.
2. You must know that reading the whole of your textbook or completing your scheme of work is never a guarantee of success, rather, knowing, understanding and applying the major topics will.

I am a graduate of Physics Education from Adéyemí College of Education, He also bagged a Master's degree in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Nigeria, UNN.
Master B is a passionate advocate for the simplification of the teaching and learning of Physics using Technology enhanced active tools. I have taught both in the Eastern part of the country and the Southern parts. I have a vast experience in teaching spanning over 12 years in both Nigerian and British Curriculum.
I have coached students for both WAEC and Jamb examinations respectively with amazing results. My teaching methods are varied, learner centered, individualized differentiation and active.
I am skilled and trained in the use of modern technological and online tools for facilitating interactive and interesting lessons like Edmodo, My Scilife, Google Classroom, Microsoft Whiteboard, Flipgrid etc.
Conclusively, I am a registered member of the Science Association of Nigeria, Teachersfirst online platform and an ed-tech coach. I love Physics and I will do everything scientifically possible to see it demystified using animations, videos, games etc.
