Experienced Science Tutor
Learning Science should be very interesting that's why i employ a range of teaching and learning techniques when teaching science which I adapt and use according to the needs of the student I am working with. I enjoy developing lessons which are tailored to students' needs and work consistently on making my tutoring sessions effective by using feedback to tailor my lessons for each student I work with. I am extremely patient and encouraging and will always make sure every student feels they have gained confidence to independently approach any topic in science.
My name is Elohor, I am a graduate of Biochemistry from the University of Port Harcourt.
I have over two (2) years teaching experience, teaching Primary School Students Science and teaching Secondary School Students Biology.
My teaching style is heavily dictated by my students. My first lesson is all about discovering what type of learner they are, We also talk about their interests and goals. This seemingly conversation often holds the key to motivating them towards success.
To my mind learning is always best done actively. I ask lots of questions and expect a good level of engagement during a session.
I also believe that at the heart of even the trickiest problems is a series of simple solutions. I aim to make those simple solutions clear and to help students to think clearly and effective for themselves.
Above all, learning doesn't happen very well if a student isn’t engaged. I’m good at helping my students become interested in what they're studying and, even if it takes a little while, it's always worth it.

As a teacher, the first thing i do before any class is to create a detailed lesson plan, detailing what is expected to be achieved for that class in a way that it maximizes the time frame allocated to the class. My class session is always engaging and this makes the student free with me to ask questions. At the end of each class, after I must have ensured that the goal for that day is achieved, I give out assignments. This keeps the student occupied and the topic taught for that day remains fresh in the student's memory.
