The rate of an enzymatic reaction can often be described as the amount of product formed in a period of time (in your case, seconds). With this description in mind, you can calculate the rate of an enzymatic reaction as follows:
Amount of product formed
Time taken to form product (seconds)
The units your teacher gave you simply means "per second", hence why I have divided by seconds. Since you haven't given anymore information, I will assume this answer will suffice.
Hope this helps.
