Personal Description:

Hi, I am Elena and I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Otago whose main area of research, is proteins of the heart and how they play a role in heart failure.

My most recent qualification is a Bachelor of Science - First Class (Honours) in Physiology and I have also completed my Bachelor of Science, majoring in Physiology and minoring in Anatomy. I have completed additional papers like biological anthropology and cellular anatomy/physiology which have proven to be useful in my degree.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring for just under 5 years now and have experience in the following subjects at different levels: biology, numeracy, and secondary-level chemistry. Although I only have first-hand experience teaching at an NCEA level, I am familiar with the IGSCE (~GSCE) curriculum and can be adaptive to other forms of examination such as international baccalaureate (IB), etc.

As my research is predominantly based on Physiology, I thoroughly enjoy teaching biology-based papers the most.

I am currently working as a Lab Demonstrator at UoO, and am thoroughly enjoying this opportunity. As a lab demonstrator, I possess the personality traits that make a good demonstrator, such as patience, confidence, and enthusiasm.

Tutoring Approach:

At our first conversation, I would like to understand your course and how it works. Next, I would discuss the timeline of my tutoring to align with your coursework for the year.
I would like for you to engage in a lot of activities that I will have, and will most likely quiz you at the end of each session, thus your memory is engaged and reinforcing your learning.
I enjoy teaching more conceptual ideas rather than fact learning and memorization, I know that understanding the overall concept before the little details is more helpful in the long run and is better than remembering and throwing little facts here and there!
