Information about Opeyemi

CURRENTLY FULLY BOOKED.

I have been privately tutoring since 2010. I do my tutoring online using an interactive whiteboard system (see more on this below). I am a Masters graduate (MSc in Green Chemistry) from the University of York BSc Chemistry with Biochemistry from Queen Mary University of London(both Russell Group universities). I have a 100% satisfaction rate as feedback from all my students (who had never tried online tutoring before) which I am very proud of.

I am aware that many students study with the concept of the sciences, especially Chemistry and Physics. The pressure can be daunting for a teen and I want to be able to make people `see` in a scientific way, be able to bring understanding so that they can take on any examination and achieve the grades they desire.

Availability: Weekday evenings and Weekends. Please tell me your availability as I can often work around that.

Not currently tutoring in-person.

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: I have been tutoring professionally since 2010 and have helped various students boost their confidence and achieve their goals. My students have come from all backgrounds and have ranged from Year 6 to 13.

From my experience as a professional tutor, I have taught in several families with many people opting for long term tuition.
I understand that students learn in various ways, so I try to structure my tutorials to suit individual needs. Generally however, I strive for a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and sometimes take an informal approach towards learning especially where the tougher concepts are concerned. I am always professional!

I implore hands-on techniques (where applicable) and encourage participation and thought-provoking discussion. I encourage my students to ask "why?" While I work closely with mark schemes to ensure that students become familiar with exam technique, my goal is to help them become thinkers and not crammers, so they can apply their knowledge to any scenario.

I use regular feedback mechanisms which can include tests or assignments (formal or informal) to assess understanding and progress.

Ope has tutored my son A level Chemistry online over the summer break. He has found the lessons very helpful and his confidence has grown tremendously. Ope is very knowledgeable, engaging and plans the sessions to help with areas where he is struggling while also helping him prepare for his upcoming A level exams. I would be glad to recommend Ope to anyone in need of Chemistry tutoring.

Tutors Response :

Hello Kay. Thank you for the lovely feedback. Pleasure tutoring your son!

Opeyemi, is an outstanding tutor, she is professional, organised and really engages with her pupil. She is tutoring my daughter in the run up to her A levels. Not only has she enjoyed the sessions, she is becoming much more confident and has really increased her knowledge. I would not hesitate to highly recommend her.

Tutors Response :

Thanks for your kind comments. It`s my pleasure to help!

Ope is a great teacher who thrives quite well during a longer lesson time frame. My only suggestion is for ideas to be introduced to make short lessons just as great an experience as the longer lessons, I know this is not easy, but something to think about. Variety of style is interesting but needs to work for each student, some students may like the incorporation of videos to watch within their lessons and some may just prefer a one on one experience, again just something to think about. I know Ope has a great career ahead of her.

Tutors Response :

Hi Olayiwola

Thanks for your kind feedback. By default, I have hourly sessions unless asked to extend by the client.
I`m sorry to hear that you did not appreciate the short videos, one of the benefits of online tutoring is that I can cater to different learning types by employing different resources during the session, which sometimes include short videos among other things but is never the focus/bulk of the session. Typically, students enjoy the occasional video/quiz, but I take your comments on board!

Best wishes

(I tutored this student a total of 2 hours over 2 weeks)

I learn so much with Ope, every lesson is engaging and we get through a lot of work. I’ve never felt confident with chemistry, and my understanding is massively increasing. My exam technique is also improving which is essential for A-level, as we do lots of practice questions. Overall the best tutor I’ve ever had!

Tutors Response :

Hey Elsa. Thanks for your kind feedback! I`m glad that you are finding the online sessions very helpful and engaging. Pleasure is all mine

Ope makes the subject biology more engaging and interesting to learn about. I would just like to be asked more questions about what we`re doing whilst going through the topics.

Tutors Response :

Thanks for the feedback, Alfie! I try to factor as many questions as possible during the session and also as homework but I hope you can appreciate that an hour is a limited time to teach and also have an extensive Q&A session. I usually set aside time for a "big" test after a few weeks of sessions :)

I am very glad that I found Ope for my daughter as she is preparing for her GCSE. Ope has very individualised way of teaching students. My daughter says she understands everything taught by her; and her grades are much improved.

Thank you so much OPe and Tutorhunt, where I found her.

Regards
Nirmala

Tutors Response :

Many thanks, Nirmala for the stellar feedback. Pleasure is all mine :)

Ope explained things well to my daughter. She was very flexible and focussed on the tricky areas. Having the extra lessons was definitely a bonus before exams.
