Hello Students and Parents, my name is Yelena! I recently graduated from the University of California- Santa Barbara and earned a Bachelors of Science in Pharmacology. I have a passion for learning, the way our bodies work is something that has always fascinated me. When I first began studying biology in my AP Biology class in High School, I had no idea how to memorize all of the facts. I was puzzled. After a couple of weeks, I realized that the fastest route to learning the material was by actually understanding it. As soon as I began to see how all of the pieces worked together, I could see the entire puzzle. Thus, in one word my teaching style is that of understanding and integrating one's knowledge.
"Science is simply common sense at its best" -Thomas Huxley
