I am a seasoned teacher with experience and practical results. My interest in teaching lead to my undergoing postgraduate training in Anatomy after my basic medical qualification (MD). It was the same driving force and passion to impart knowledge to others and make positive scientific contribution to the society that lead to my pursuing a teaching career. As a teacher, my goal had been to train students who understand the foundational concepts and develop practical problem solving strategies in finding answers to scientific questions. My experience of over fourteen years in teaching has produced numerous positive results and also made me to understand the numerous learning problems faced by students which prevent them from bringing out the desired potentials in them. To overcome this, I have learned to deal with each student personally and to identify their unique deficiency and learning challenges.
My teaching experience and the challenges faced over the years has improved my basic knowledge and enhanced my communication skills. My interpersonal relationship with colleagues and students including motivational potentials has been improved. Through team work and collaborations, I have acquired excellent oral communication, writing and listening skills which were pivotal to good teaching, planning, organization and leadership results. My ability to work under pressure and strong exhibition of team player has contributed to positive results in my teaching performances and has produced numerous graduates who had been gainfully employed and are performing excellently in different health institutions.
As Anatomy teacher I have dissected numerous traditionally preserved and had demonstrated plastinated bodies. I teach Anatony and physiology to medical and paramedical students including nursing students who receive classes in basic physics and chemistry.
Physics and Biology are basic high school science subjects which form the foundation to understanding of Anatomy and Physiology which are the bed rock for studying medicine and other related courses. Understanding the basic concepts of these subjects will open a gate way to developing the desired confidence and charisma needed in pursuit of medical and science based careers.
If I could achieve all these through hard work, dedication and perseverance by spending quality time listening to my teachers, you too can. Come lets work together to develop your God given talent.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have taught Anatomy for more than thirteen years and also dissected more than one hundred human bodies (cadava), using them to demonstrate the various systems of the body to my numerous students who are doing well today in various health institutions.
Biology is one of the subjects that has anatomy component in it. It is one of the key subject I have studied for more than thirty years. Biology remains the backbone for understanding of basic medical sciences.
I have studied Physiology extensively in the course of my medical pursuit. The wealth of knowledge acquired is the basis for effective demonstration of function and structure of human body to my students. Physiology is practically with us and will remain with us and most times I allow my students to practically observe physiology in themselves.
