About me

I study Physics and Philosophy at the University of Bristol, and I love it because I'm learning about the workings of the Universe and all the mathematical concepts that help us to understand it. To get where I am I took 5 A-levels and 1 As level, so I know how stressful it can be to have so many important exams. In my experience, getting As and A*s in exams is as much about exam technique as it is about understanding, which is why I think it's so important to get help from someone wi...

I study Physics and Philosophy at the University of Bristol, and I love it because I'm learning about the workings of the Universe and all the mathematical concepts that help us to understand it. To get where I am I took 5 A-levels and 1 As level, so I know how stressful it can be to have so many important exams. In my experience, getting As and A*s in exams is as much about exam technique as it is about understanding, which is why I think it's so important to get help from someone with so much up to date exam experience.

I’m passionate about tutoring because I love the feeling when you’re learning something and something clicks in your head and it makes complete sense, and I want to help others to achieve that. 

During Sixth Form, I tutored for Maths GCSE and my student came out with a 7 (A) despite being predicted a 4 (D). At the same time I ran a Girls Physics Club to encourage them to take the A-level by helping them with their studying and sharing some of the most interesting parts of Physics with them.

Over the summer I became an assistant teacher at an English school for foreign students, and due to good feedback I was promoted to substitute teacher where I held my own classes despite not taking the full teaching course. This means I am an engaging teacher and have experience in planning and delivering lessons both in a classroom and on a 1 to 1 basis.

About my sessions

In my sessions, I will solve practice and past exam questions together with my student, pausing to explain any misunderstandings or tricky parts. I will highlight the areas where students normally have difficulties and I have a lot of memory aiding tips for solving questions. In my experience, practising past questions is the most effective way to learn and the most important part is to understand and remember where you went wrong so you don't repeat the mistake, so you can eliminate as m...

In my sessions, I will solve practice and past exam questions together with my student, pausing to explain any misunderstandings or tricky parts. I will highlight the areas where students normally have difficulties and I have a lot of memory aiding tips for solving questions. In my experience, practising past questions is the most effective way to learn and the most important part is to understand and remember where you went wrong so you don't repeat the mistake, so you can eliminate as many errors as possible to aim for 100%. This worked for me because going through all my past mistakes helped me to greatly increase my percentage. At the end of each session we will review the errors that were made in the previous sessions to remember not to repeat them.

Elena really helps me to understand every topic in physics, from the short one markers to the long confusing 6 marker questions she helps guide you through with the key points needed! Thankyou so much.
