« I have to say Elina is a really smart and enthusiastic tutor. I came to her when I was stuck with an assignment about cognitive behavioural therapy. I booked some appointments with her to discuss on the assignment. She is really helpful. After finishing my drafts, I sent her and she read carefully, then showed me where I got wrong. I remember she was so careful that she even showed a small mistake in my assignment. »

UTAS PhD candidate is giving a tutor in some specific fields of Neuroscience

Methodology

My teaching method is face to face or online-based learning. I usually find out the problems of student first. After that, I will design specific lessons which are the best suitable to the students. I can teach undergraduate and Master student how to write laboratory reports. I can show what is the best structure lab reports and what should they write in reports. I always got a distinction marks for all my lab report.

Background

I am a PhD student at University of Tasmania. My major is Medical Science. I have a Master degree in Cancer Research and Molecular Science. I am always a teaching assistant for my supervisor during my undergraduate and postgraduate. I used to be a teacher at The University of Science and have had much experience on teaching biological subjects. I also used to teach biology lessons for a group of 5 high school students. I often give feedback on reports and essays for Undergraduate students in Scientific fields.

I have to say Elina is a really smart and enthusiastic tutor. I came to her when I was stuck with an assignment about cognitive behavioural therapy. I booked some appointments with her to discuss on the assignment. She is really helpful. After finishing my drafts, I sent her and she read carefully, then showed me where I got wrong. I remember she was so careful that she even showed a small mistake in my assignment.

I have been struggling with the assignments and essays for years, but Elina as a tutor has helped me get rid of that. She is dedicated, passionate, supportive and friendly in giving reliable feedbacks and helpful advice for my essays. She shows me how to avoid common mistakes in the essays, which helps boost my confidence as well as realise my potential. As a result, I also have improved and achieved good performances in those assignments.
