Prepclass Tutor Since: December 2015
My name is Ikema. I am a young, articulate and vast graduate of Chemistry Education from the University of Lagos, and i am also a certified NCE graduate of Integrated Science/Chemistry from the Federal College of Education Lagos.
With over seven years teaching experience in Mathematics, English language and Biology to both Basic and Senior Secondary School students, i discovered that,one of the most important elements in successful learning is full engagement with a subject.
I always take time to get to know what my students enjoys and find interesting. I know from experience that when you enjoy something and feel interested in it, the work you put in it is both less arduous and more satisfying, and you are far more likely to excel.
I tailor my sessions to fit my student's learning styles, as this is the surest way that they will learn and make progress. For example, where some students will be very verbal, others will think more visually, and want to map things on the page.
I always keep any texts being studied close at hand, so that all discussions and exercises relate directly to the subjects, and my students are always relating general learning to their specific set texts, thereby gaining an intimate knowledge of the subject.
I have often found that a lack of confidence is what holds students back, so i always support and encouraged my students in trusting their own ideas and interpretations, enjoying what they are studying, and having high expectations of themselves.

I know that students succeed when their learning goals are not abstract or dictated by someone else but are personally meaningful. That is why i take time to really get to know my students so that i can put their learning into this context. I also believe that students learn best when they can see the real-world application of their knowledge and skills and when they are encouraged to aspire to the highest standards. For this reason, my education and professional background are a huge asset to me as a tutor. As an experienced classroom teacher, i have a thorough understanding of the assessment requirements for public examinations, and i know exactly what it takes to succeed.
