Excellent and Passionate Chemistry Tutor

Chemistry education plays an important role in enhancing the quality of teaching and research as well as ensuring that students are equipped with good knowledge to produce intensive goods and services to meet human needs for food, health care products and other materials aimed at improving the quality of life.

Chemistry helps you to understand the world around you. Why are plants green? How is cheese made? What is in soap and how does it clean?

I strive to ensure my teaching processes are fun and constructive. This is so that the sessions aren't too boring for my student and to also make sure we achieve the desired objectives at the end of sessions.

I endeavour to help my students feel the same fascination with the 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.

About
FavoriteSTUDENT
FAVORITE

My name is Taiwo, I am a graduate of Chemical Engineering from the University of Lagos.

I aim to make seemingly mundane subjects personally relevant and interesting, rendering abstract concepts far more tangible. This is absolutely integral from Early Years to University education and I often find that a different way of approaching a topic, or a strong analogy is all it takes to make a difficult subject become simple and intuitive.

My approach also involves clearly establishing what each student's needs and goals are.

In practice, this usually involves an initial class in which I gauge the student's needs through conversation and a variety of tests.

From there, with patience and empathy, I will set out clear expectations for a programme of study. This programme of study is revised as the student and I progress.

Through giving years of one-on-one tutorials at various levels I have found the most important learning tool is to kindle the students own interest and love of their subject. I am passionate about Mathematics and other Science related subjects and I enjoy discovering that same passion and excitement in every of my students!

I have also realized that confidence is often vital for this, so I encourage students to realize the value of their own ideas by giving thoughtful feedback, and creating a supportive relationship.

    My method of teaching varies with each pupil I work with. However, in the first stages I believe it is essential to ascertain the immediate needs of the pupil, and discover where they think my help is most required. Once established, I encourage them to be as honest as possible throughout the teaching process by meeting them on their level, supporting an atmosphere of vocal and written exploration, and above all, inspiring them to learn and be confident in their learning. I prefer active learning rather than lecturing students, for example, getting them to teach me work they have just learnt or playing games to assist with learning strategies. I believe this helps the student's learning, and I tailor these practices to the pupil, their needs and their abilities. As a private tutor, I have taught students at various levels. I have taught Mathematics and other Science related subjects.

  • Subject Teacher (Physics)

    Umiaghwa Secondary School

    As a subject teacher at Umiaghwa Secondary School, I taught Physics to students in the senior secondary school level. I did this with the aid of a detailed lesson plan which was created in accordance with the Nigerian approved educational curriculum. I carried out periodic assessments on them to evaluate the extent to which they understood the topics taught to them.
