About my sessions

I am familiar with the specifications for biology and chemistry A-levels throughout the exam boards. I think everybody has strong and weak points in the subject they are studying so I would focus on explaining the basics in the weak areas, using diagrams and examples, to make it easier for the student to understand.

To assess the progress, I usually prepare a set of exam questions on the topic discussed, as homework.

Elena take her job seriously . Each lesson is so well prepared before hand so the lesson can be as productive as possible. She is really knowledgable in the field of Biochemistry. A lesson is well structured with a teaching plan and the way she conduct a lesson is as good as an accomplished school teacher.

Really helped a lot with Biology. She knows how to explain everything and is really kind. I was even sent notes that explained difficult topics clearly.

Elena has helped me so much in both my chem and biology GCSEs. I knew next to nothing, but now she has really helped me improve in so little time. Her way of tutoring is very helpful and she has a very good way of wording things and putting them in a way that i can understand. I would definitely recommend her!

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 to a friend!
