About
FavoriteSTUDENT
FAVORITE

I am highly enthusiastic about education and Science related subjects and I endeavor to help my students feel the same fascination with these subjects as I do.

My goal is to be able to give the student the confidence and the skills necessary to tackle exams in their subjects. I believe that it is important to track a student's progress with exercises and exam-style questions. When a student sees an improvement in their abilities, the confidence-boost they receive really demonstrates how valuable tutoring is.

It is also important to me that a student truly understands the concepts they are learning, as I find this is the best way to retain the information and apply it to solving problems. 

It is vital to tailor each set of lessons to the needs of the individual student. Everybody learns in a variety of ways and, as such, I am always on the look out for new techniques and ideas to help me in my teaching.

That said, I am always committed to helping students develop their confidence as I believe that if someone is to work successfully they need to firmly believe in their capacity to improve. I like to encourage a relaxed but focused working environment with a friendly and engaging style.

I am a conscientious private tutor (full-time /part-time of science subjects: chemistry,  physics,  mathematics and biology. I have over  6 years of experience in teaching and preparing students for WAEC AND IGCSE with proven accomplishments.

I give them impromptu tests to ascertain their level of preparation and also to help me spot their weaknesses for us to work on. At the beginning of each session with a student, I give a test to help me ascertain the areas that the student is lacking, I also work towards understanding the students best learning pattern so I can tailor my teaching process to suit the student.
