Home tutor in Eti Osa, Lagos
Passionate Physics Tutor
My approach to tutoring is student-driven and question-based. 'Student-driven' means that each lesson is tailored to their own needs and concerns. We tackle the topics that they find most challenging and build confidence from there. 'Question-based' means that I always keep my students engaged and on their toes. They are an active participant in the lesson and enjoy rising to the challenge.
Levels Taught: Upper Secondary, Under Graduate, Exams
Prepclass Tutor Since: February 2017
I am very passionate and enthusiastic about teaching, and take a structured and detailed approach in order to instill confidence in my students and help develop their skills. I have learnt to be adaptable, flexible and dynamic in order to meet the individual needs of each student, and having taught a wide range of ages and abilities across the spectrum, I understand the importance of employing different learning styles and strategies in order to maximize each student's full potential.
As we tackle more material, I make sure that we regularly revisit what we've learnt in previous weeks. Recapping our progress at the beginning of each lesson means that new-found knowledge sticks in my student's long-term memory. They'll be well-prepared when exam time comes around!
