Prepclass Tutor Since: July 2016
My name is Mofesola. I am a graduate of Industrial Chemistry from Olabisi Onabanjo University.
I have six years experience teaching Chemistry and Agricultural Science.
My own approach involves clearly establishing what each student's needs and goals are, pushing an A-Level grade up from an A to an A*.
In practice this usually involves an initial class in which i gauge my student's needs through conversation and a variety of tests.
From there, with patience and empathy, i will set out clear expectations for a program of study. This program of study is revised as my student and i progress.
Often a student will want ongoing support (for their coursework, or to improve their critical thinking) but will also have specific goals, such as learning the memorizing of formulas in Chemistry, calculations, or submitting an assignment.
Through giving years of one-on-one tutorials at various levels, i have found the most important learning tool is to kindle my student`s own interest and love of their subject.
I am passionate about Agricultural Science, and enjoy discovering that excitement in new students! Confidence is often vital for this, so i encourage my students to realize the value of their own ideas by giving thoughtful feedback, and creating a supportive relationship. This helps my students to discover their own questions about a topic, and gently guides their natural intellectual creativity and curiosity.

My best results have often come when subject-specific work is mixed with broader study-skills techniques, such fast calculations, or examination technique, and i enjoy working on these broader, humanistic skills that help my students in aspects of their study beyond Chemistry. I also have a wide knowledge of Agricultural Science, as well as its appropriate critical and theoretical contexts, and use this to open up new avenues of reading and learning wherever possible.
