Elena S Very responsive
Tutoring near South Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC & Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC


About

My name is Elena! I'm a 28 year old medical scientist at the Royal Children's Hospital.

I began tutoring while completing my masters, and fell in love with educating young students and helping them regain their confidence in science and specifically, biology.

I love inspiring my students to enjoy the topics they're studying and see how its relative to the the real world. I find once students see how the topic matters, they're much more interested and learn better.

My qualifications include:
Bachelor of Science
Graduate Diploma of Science - Genetics
Masters of Biomedical Science - Cancer Genetics

Private lessons prices $50/hour, group classes only $20/hour!

FREE group lessons will be offered to students from rural or disadvantaged schools.

I am determined to ensure students are not disadvantaged in this time and everyone has access to the resources they need to complete VCE to the best of their ability.

Reviews

Elena tutored my daughter in Year 12 biology via Skype. My daughter was not very confident with biology. Immediately Elena put my daughter at ease, was very approachable and made her lessons easy to relate to and understand. My daughters biology teacher noticed a difference in her confidence and knowledge of biology. Her SAC results improved considerably. Elena was very flexible with times and was available for extra tutoring if necessary. We couldn’t believe how lucky we were to find Elena. Thank you Elena,
