I am a medical graduate from one of the most prestigious universities in Nigeria, and am certified with the commission for foreign medical students in Philadelphia. After graduating, I decided to switch gears a bit and go into the educational field as a professor of anatomy. I have taught anatomy at several colleges, including Virginia College, Kaplan College, and the Florida State College of Jacksonville. I am able to tutor a variety of other medical science courses, but I love working with anatomy best. Anatomy is one of the core courses for people with majors in the medical and paramedical fields, and I have a great deal of fun with it.
I have taught a wide variety of students from different educational backgrounds, both science- and non-science-related. I have successfully prepared students for their majors, and have received excellent evaluations from them. I am very passionate about what I do because I believe that my student's success are mine as well; no one knows what the future holds, and the students I tutor right now could very well become my future doctors and nurses. My teaching philosophy focuses on tailoring my teaching style to meet the needs of each student at their level, and then begin working them up gradually until the course material is well understood.
Outside of teaching, I love to spend time with my family, to travel, and to make new friends.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Brief introductions, discussion of the student’s needs and expectations, schedules, any additional course information or materials, and then we proceed from there.
