To teach Chemistry effectively, one of the most important things as a tutor, is to help my students to grow in confidence in the subject.
To do this you need to build a relationship of trust, but i also believe you need to make learning fun. Tutors need to strengthen a student's interest in independent study, as well as tackling specific issues.
When a student's interest in a subject is flagging, i always see it as a great opportunity to develop some less traditional learning strategies.
My name is Afolayan. I am a graduate of Chemistry from the Prestigious University of Lagos.
I am an Analytical Chemist with experience in conventional and advanced analytical chemistry and expertise in analysis performance, analytical instrumentation (characterization of products).
I have health, safety and environmental coordination, a proven track record as a charismatic achiever, an intelligent, honest, and a very good team player with positive attitude, dedication and definiteness of purpose backed by former employers' testimonial.
I have a Masters of Science degree in Analytical Chemistry, a Bachelor of Science BSc. (Hons) Industrial Chemistry. I also have a certification in Health, Safety & Environment.
My approach to teaching is based on effective communication and periodic feedback, providing my students with a sense of positive personal interaction, increased self-esteem, self-efficacy and self-regulation. These are characteristics that lead to success in and beyond school.
It begins with assessing my students’ academic strengths and weaknesses, and follows by developing a working relationship with them to ensure the desired outcome, matching lessons with their learning style by introducing material in the format best suited to them and thus enhancing their learning process.
I assess my student’s progress continuously, in order to adapt the lessons accordingly, e.g. in terms of pace, contents or challenges.
Regardless of the level of the students, i help them with Chemistry, from the fundamental to the more advanced topics.

Building a strong working relationship and trust between the tutor and student is very important, and being easily approachable is a vital characteristic a tutor should have. Some students may have just lost their inspiration to learn and so it is the tutor's job to motivate and inspire them. An important role for a tutor is to build a students confidence and acting as a mentor to them
