Tutor Information


When I first sat in a chemistry class, nothing seemed like it would ever work out great, only that it did and here Iam ready to help another one like me. Chemistry can be tricky; the equations and flowcharts, the elements and compounds. However, they all need you to be willing and open minded. Let me take you through the path, I will help you identify your weak areas and we can together strategize a way forward. I'm a girl and a mother and that alone encourages me to help a girl like you and a boy like you. If it seems too hard to understand, when you start to understand, it will be too hard to forget. I have tutored many boys and girls especially those in high school and a few of my course mates and many come back with the same feedback; they now know that chemistry is not all that hard and that they will henceforth help someone else in their shoes. I'm looking forward to working with lots of students as we make Chemistry easier.

Bachelor of industrial chemistry, Physical and Applied sciences
Being a first girl in my extended family to sit in a chemistry class studying advanced chemistry was like a fire burning from within challenging me to a duel with failure. I was scared that everything new my lecturers would come to teach in class would be too hard for me. This was until I completed my four years with a second class honours that I realized I had actually figured it all out with just simple steps of listening, noting important points and further reading after class.

Work Experience

Home and online chemistry tutor
With over 5 years in the field, my skills have marched through bronze to silver to gold level. I apply different teaching mechanisms after an assessment of my student's ability. Assignments and tests are my secret ingredients in rating level of perfection we have attained after sessions with my students. The undying yearning to see a student leave better than they came in jump starts me daily to my commitment of resilience for success.

With the increased understanding of chemistry in college, I started home tutoring of students in my neighbourhood. The bi-hourly sessions would begin with a prayer and little stretch of muscles after an hour. I would keep a notebook with me to jot down the weak areas of my student which I'd later cover privately with tests and questions to increase their understanding. However, it wasn't all about books but I'd listen to their personal challenges and encourage them where I could. Eventually, all those who went through my tuition showed remarkable improvement in school.

Mathematics and Chemistry teacher
It felt easy but challenging to be a teacher of my peers in a combination of subjects that a little scared the boys and girls from my village but I took it upon me to introduce them into a stronger sense of understanding. I made extra hours for the poor ones and more intrigues for the sharper ones. Random tests that were rewarded in person further strengthened my students. Weekly visits to the lab and severe exposure to the scientific setting of chemistry eventually saw my students start to flourish and pass better in this subject.
