Junior Secondary Science Tutor
Home tutor in Eti Osa, Lagos
As a teacher with a strong vested interest in Science, I have been able to constantly and consistently up the ante for my students, and in the process push them to improve, culminating in peak performance, a high level of curiosity, ingraining lifelong learning habits in the process, and overall make them better than they were before I met them.
A notable example was at the school where I served during my NYSC year. I taught Basic Science to Junior Secondary School students and I noticed that these kids were used to just 'getting by' in their exams and graded performances; hitting just shy off the 60th and 70th percentile. From working with them, I noted that they could do better and I pushed them with incentives, helped them work on their self confidence, public speaking and presentation skills, bridging the gap in assimilation, and at the end of each term most of them hit the 80th and 90th percentile.
Uchechukwu O. also teaches
I'm a graduate of Polymer and Textile Engineering from Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State.
I was a class teacher at a private secondary school in Ibadan where I took classes in Basic Science, Chemistry, Basic Technology and Mathematics. This secondary school is where I underwent my National Youth Service which culminated by July, meaning that I have had one full year of teaching experience, aside the sporadic experiences I've accumulated over the years from teaching nursery school age students, primary and secondary school students and adults. Although, I may have studied engineering, I still consider myself invaluable to the course of delivering excellent services in Biology, Geography and Conversational English.
I'm a firm believer in lifelong learning, and in stoking the embers of curiosity in my students till it becomes a raging inferno of knowledge acquisition.
