In my view, the purpose of teaching Physics is to assist my student uncover insights into learning that would be missed in the classroom or private study.
While independent learning is, of course, something to be promoted, education also exists for the current generation to transmit their tried and tested learning to the next generation.
My name is Kingsley. I studied at the University of Lagos.
I have over seven years experience teaching Mathematics, Physics and Swimming.
I believe it is important to know the individual in order to be an effective teacher. I therefore spend time getting to know my pupils before teaching begins and finding out their interests, hobbies, strengths and weaknesses.
We will then chose achievable goals together, this is very important as it is vital the student has a sense of ownership for their learning. After that, it is all about making the lessons as relaxed, interactive and informative as possible.
By being approachable and encouraging i like to create a safe space where students can make mistakes to aid their learning.
When preparing pupils for GCE and A-level exams, i focus on key content and revision techniques with plenty of exam practice.
I always strive to make my lessons as fun as possible, while ensuring pupils make as much progress as possible.

I am an exam-based tutor because, i have realized that the backbone and purpose that exams provide are necessary to secure the focus of a student who has had to commit to the long and demanding days of school. That said, i remind my students that education also exists to prepare students for the challenging expectations of adult life. If they employ regular and deliberate practice in their studies to preclude regression, then they will have established an excellent foundation.
