Experienced Physics Tutor
Physics is one of those sciences that usually gets taught one of two ways - equation based or example/logic based. What throws students off is when their teacher picks or favors the method that doesn't work well for them, or the teacher goes too fast and students don't get a handle on some of the early ideas. Physics is a science that builds on itself. In Physics, if you don't understand vectors and force diagrams, centripetal motion becomes difficult. If centripetal motion is difficult, certain parts of harmonic motion become troublesome and so on. I feel comfortable using both example based and equation based teaching method. I love helping students think their way through the questions.
Prepclass Tutor Since: July 2016
My name is Solomon, I am a graduate of Food Science and Technology from the Obafemi Awolowo University. I am a certified Information Technology professional with specialty in Troubleshooting and maintaining personal computers, mobile devices and printers and Networking (routing and switching).
For two years now, i have successfully taught students Mathematics, Physics and ICT.
For me, the greatest reward tutoring can offer is watching a student grow in knowledge but also self-confidence. I believe effective tutoring is about delivering complex concepts in simple terms with patience, enthusiasm and encouragement.
Developing strong relationships with students means that parallels can be drawn between what is being studied, and the students' own life experiences, which makes for a deeper level of understanding and, ultimately, better learning. Surely, teaching skills and initiatives that students can then forever more rely upon, such as word association and memorization through recalling related experiences, is the best legacy any tutor can have.
My passion for teaching is exceeded only by my love for learning new topics and building on lessons learned. Persistence and hard work in learning are values with which I grew and have shared with classmates and those I've mentored academically and professionally for the past several years. Seeing the test scores and proficiency exam results improve for those I've tutored is by far the best form of repayment.

My teaching is very conversational and interactive. Philosophically, I view tutoring as an interactive coaching experience. I focus on intimate discussions of conceptual learning as well as problem solving and test taking behaviors. These are the very things that a lecture or class cannot shove down a student's throat, yet are vital to long term success.
