Elena is a graduate of the University of Oxford turned qualified teacher of Chemistry and Biology. She obtained a first-class final award in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry at Oxford in 2020, while tutoring throughout her entire four-year tenure. She has a profound love for teaching the sciences and fervently believes that with the right guidance, subjects like chemistry and biology can be both exciting and easy to understand.
Committed to dispelling the myths surrounding these so-called 'hard subjects,' Elena tailors her approach to suit each student's unique strengths and challenges. She ensures a solid grasp of the fundamentals before navigating students through exam questions, emphasising all key terms and expressions required to access full marks. To track a student's progress, Elena provides exam questions as homework, dedicating time in the subsequent lesson for a detailed review.
Following a PGCE, Elena became an esteemed teacher at a prestigious UK boarding school in 2020, bringing a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the subjects of Chemistry and Biology. Her online tutoring journey began in 2017, when she first began to deliver the specifics of the UK and international A level specifications.
With dedication, extensive hands-on experience and an outstanding proven track record, Elena stands as an invaluable resource and mentor for students seeking academic excellence.
"Elena has been an exceptional chemistry tutor for my son, who faced significant challenges in keeping up with his A-level chemistry studies due to his rigorous England rugby commitments. Despite Sean missing a considerable amount of school, Elena worked tirelessly to bridge the gaps in his knowledge, catching up on missed material and also making him develop a deep understanding of complex chemistry concepts."
"What truly stood out about Elena was her reliability and flexibility. Whether it was a last-minute study session or a concept that needed extra clarification, Elena was always there to provide support. I wholeheartedly recommend Elena as a chemistry tutor. Her commitment to her students' success, along with her ability to inspire confidence, sets her apart as an outstanding educator. We are grateful for her unwavering support."
"Elena is truly an excellent A level Chemistry teacher. She knows the specifications and mark scheme very well, so she is able to answer instant questions from students. My son has started tutoring lessons with Elena for 2 years since GCSE. He enjoys her lessons and is happy to have his questions solved. We highly appreciate her great work and kind support during this period."
"I cannot thank Elena enough for her excellent support to my son. He has upgraded his biology predicted grade from B to A. His teachers at school were surprised to see his excellent improvement and now predict even higher with an A*. This is an incredible achievement he reached with the support he received from Elena."
"With Elena’s dedication and motivation, I achieved an A* in A-level Biology. She had a very friendly approach as we tackled my weak points together- I would definitely recommend her!"
