Innovative Chemistry Tutor
I am highly enthusiastic about Chemistry, and i endeavor to help my students feel the same fascination with this subject as i do.
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.
I particularly love that light bulb moment when a student understands a new concept! I take the time to acquaint myself with each student’s learning style and level of ability so i can tailor my teaching style to their needs, and i focus on creating a comfortable atmosphere for my students to ask question.
Prepclass Tutor Since: September 2015
My name is Oluwatoyin, I am a graduate of Chemistry Education from the University of Lagos.
My four years experience teaching Secondary School Chemistry made me believe that all students need individual focus on their strengths and weaknesses, which is one of the major benefits of private tutoring.
I try to tailor my approach to be in line my student's needs, and not on a preconceived plan. One of my main goals though, is to encourage and teach my students the independence to attempt to solve any problems or questions they may have themselves, and prepare them for the world ahead.
I do this through ensuring that core concepts are properly understood, as well as teaching them some study and research skills.
I am majorly focused on helping my students prepare for entrance examinations.
I feel that one of the most important aspects is to keep the lessons as fresh and engaging as possible, particularly after a full day at school. I think that one of my strengths is being able to tailor my approach to each of my student, and find what it is that keeps them engaged.
My approach to home tuition is to promise well prepared and resourced lessons that allow my students to excel beyond their target grade. I ensure my lessons are tailored to the learning needs of my students and deliver them with enthusiasm, fostering engagement with a subject that i am very much involved in day to day.

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