Personal Description:

My name is Elena, I am Italian but I have been living in the UK for about 10 years.
I graduated in Organic Chemistry in Italy, then I did a PhD at the university of Leeds, working on alternative fuels. In 2013, while on maternity leave, I started a part time course in teaching, an interest that goes back in time. I qualified in June 2015 and started to work in a school Royston straight after. However, I am now seeking a more flexible carrier, which can combine my passion for teaching with my personal life.
Chemistry is a fantastic subject, the key to understand the world around us. Helping the students to see that and to meet their goals… well, this is my goal!

Tutoring Experience:

I tutored secondary school students and students in the first year of the university while I was still studying, in Italy.
I started teaching in the UK in 2014, and I am currently employed as a Chemistry teacher in a school in Royston. I am currently teaching GSE and A level students.

Tutoring Approach:

During the first session, I like to have a conversation with my tutee about key areas to cover. These can include contents as well as skills to be developed. I then draw a timeline to set goals and follow the progress. I use exam papers to work on main concepts and exam techniques.
