Information About Elena - Didcot tutor - (14 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Elena:
I graduated from Oxford University, having studied Geography as my undergraduate degree. I also have a Masters degree from the London School of Economics, and am currently completing a PhD from Sheffield University.
I am an experienced academic tutor, who has been tutoring for several years. I have worked in the past with a wide range of ages, and am confident working closely with children from primary through to sixth form. In the past, I have frequently worked to help children to prepare for GCSE and A-Level exams, working on both their knowledge of the subject and their exam techniques. Alternatively, I can help young people with more general skills, such as study skills, or confidence in key areas.
I have also worked at a secondary school in Oxfordshire in the Learning Support Department. As a special needs teaching assistant, I provided in-classroom support to pupils to allow them to fulfill their individual potential.
As well as teaching, I also worked for OCR as a GCSE Geography marker during the summer exam season.
My approach to tutoring depends on the individual needs of each young person. After our first session, I will be able to develop a plan for future sessions based upon the specific requirements of each student. However, all sessions will aim to be enjoyable and interactive in order for the student to better understand and remember the material.

Ellie is always on time and is professional and approachable.
Elena has been working with my daughter since September of this year.
She has improved her understanding and knowledge of Geography and helped her gain more confidence in class.
Elena has always been punctual and plans her lesson beforehand bringing in extra worksheets. This makes the lesson
more professional and makes it feel like an extension to what is taught school.
My daughter always looks forward to having Elena hence I can not recommend her enough. Big thumbs up from our side.
I would definitely recommend Elena as a tutor as not only did she spend the lesson time with my daughter, she obviously spent a lot of time preparing then marking the work in her own time.
