BIOGRAPHY & INTERESTS
I am a PhD student in Chemical Engineering (Hons.) at the University of Oxford, already holding a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the university. I was raised in Nigeria and moved to the UK for secondary school. I gained interests and academic success in mathematics and sciences which led me to apply for an engineering undergraduate course. I have worked in many academic positions as an academic mentor for undergraduates at the Department of Engineering, and mentoring 13+, GCSE, A-Level students. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, playing football, swimming, playing chess and building wooden models of large ships.
EXPERIENCE & APPROACH
I have a positive attitude and a passion to assist and motivate struggling learners and is key to building confidence and achieving academic goals. I find, from my own experience, that people learn things differently and at different paces; when students struggle with a subject, it’s usually because their learning style conflicts with the style or pace with which it is being taught. Mentoring one-on-one gives the opportunity to learn at the student’s optimal pace. I strongly believe that success at school and beyond is based on strategy, time management, and self-confidence. My passion, diligence and creative skill-set drive my students to succeed.
