Senior Secondary School Chemistry Tutor
Diligent Chemistry Tutor
Over the years of my teaching Chemistry, i have discovered that interaction and discussion between the student and teacher are prerequisites to a successful tutorial. I do not make my chemistry classes like a lecture, rather an opportunity to inform and consolidate understanding through active engagement in a topic. Having worked with lots of students, i have come to notice that often the basic knowledge of how to answer a question is present but the student lacks the skills to confidently perform this in an examination scenario. My approach thus encourages critical investigation into a topic resulting in more complete understanding of the taught topic.
My name is Adetokunbo, a graduate of Cell Biology and Genetics from the University of Lagos. I hold a Master's degree in Cell Biology and Genetics and i am currently undergoing my PhD program at the University of Lagos.
For over ten (10) years i have successfully taught Secondary School Students Biology and Chemistry, and have prepared students for WAEC and JAMB who performed outstandingly.
My personal teaching philosophy combines academic excellence with cultural appreciation. That is, I not only to teach my students the ‘ins and outs’ of their academic curriculum, but also go beyond this expectation.
Each student is different, and I make sure to tailor my teaching to the specific needs of the individual. With my students I like to create an interesting learning environment.I also believe every student is capable of performing to the best of their ability so I push my students to achieve high grades.
I adopt a very patient, process-based approach to tutoring. I create an enjoyable and positive environment which facilitates learning and results. My end - goal is to instill my students with skills that will not only assist them in a particular subject, but with their entire - learning process.
I am a strong believer that through hard - work, focus and the right attitude, a lot can be achieved.

When teaching, I Work with students to improve their skills in the subject to be taught by preparing a detailed lesson plan before class, explicitly expressing the goal for the class and the materials needed along with the time frame. During the class, I evaluate the students' progress and discuss the results and make corrections where necessary. Then give practice questions as well as homework to ensure what has been taught remains fresh in the memory before the next class.
