Lesson

Goal-oriented Chemistry Tutor

I have discovered in my years of teaching Chemistry that interaction and discussion are prerequisites to a successful tutorial. A lesson is not a lecture, rather it is an opportunity to inform and consolidate understanding through active engagement in a topic. Having worked with lots of students, i have come to notice that often the basic knowledge of how to answer a question is present but the student lacks the skills to confidently perform this in an examination scenario. My approach to teaching of chemistry encourages critical investigation into a topic resulting in more complete understanding and improved confidence.

Prepclass Tutor Since: February 2015

My name is Emmanuel, I am a graduate of Physics from the University of Lagos.

For five (5) years, I have successfully taught students in both Junior and Senior Secondary schools, preparing them not just for internal school Examinations but for external Examinations such as WAEC and JAMB.

The needs of every student is unique and one to one tutoring offers the ideal environment to adapt to individual students' learning styles. Personally, I love the process of forming questions that are tailored to the students in order to give them a deeper insight into a topic.

I always make my students feel that every topic or idea they come across is something that they could have invented themselves given enough time and the correct initial line of thought. That is why when teaching Maths for example, i teach the reason behind each formula and result, rather than just teaching how to apply the formula to a question and this has proven to be more effective.

    As a Mathematics and Science Tutor, the first thing I do when preparing for classes is to create a good lesson plan. Good lesson planning is essential to the process of teaching and learning. Then I establish a positive learning environment, accepting each student's individuality. Then I ensure I have the full attention of the student by making learning practical and relatable to each student. I assess the students to ensure that the attention is maintained by giving them class work which I go through for corrections. I summarize the day's work and give out assignment so that what has been taught is not easily forgotten
