Personal Description:

Hi everyone!! My name is Elena, I am a medical scientist working in a diagnostic lab at one of Melbourne's leading research hospitals. I completed my Master of Biomedical Science in 2017 with the University of Melbourne with H1 honours and was selected to receive the Helen R Freeman scholarship as for merit as a woman in the biomedical sciences.

I am available for tutoring online, on campus in Parkville, in the city or in a library near my home in Altona.

I completed a Bachelor of Science in 2013 and a Graduate Diploma of Science - Genetics in 2015 with a H1 average. I have also interned for 6 months at MCRI (Murdoch Children's Reseach Institute) adjacent to the Royal Children's Hospital.

I have first hand experience applying the theoretical knowledge learned in VCE biology and university lectures to real life medical and experimental scenarios. I can teach you this too!

Feel free to contact me for any further questions or to organise a session!

Tuition Experience:

Teaching biology to high school students since 2010
Teaching tertiary-level genetics since 2015
Scientist mentor at GTAC (Gene Technology Acess Centre) since 2016- 2017. The centre conducts science experiments for high school students, where as mentors we explain the processes and aid in the experiments.
Working with children's check is current.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in visual learning and understanding why something is as it is, rather than rote learning, something I have found is essential for understanding Biology.

Due to my practical experience I know how the theory is applicable to real life situations. I find that once students understand the importance of the science, their ability to remember it and enjoy learning about it grows.
