    The units are, according to my teacher, secs^-1.
    Do you do 1/time in secs?

    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.
