Hello,
I am an experienced and passionate Science tutor and teacher. I love working with students and seeing them succeed in their quest for knowledge.

Education

I have a B.S. in Chemistry, with a concentration in Biochemistry and a minor in Education. I am working towards an M.A. in Science Education, Biological Sciences 5-12. I have a solid knowledge of chemistry and biology.

Experience

Currently, I work as a private tutor helping college, high school and middle school students with chemistry and biology courses. I have extensive experience working with children as a science teacher. I have worked with middle school students teaching Living Environment to the gifted and talented students, as well as traditional 6th, 7th and 8th grade curriculum. I have tutored or taught different areas of science in varying capacities for over 20 years. Students I work with show immediate improvement in their understanding of the subject matter and consequently their test scores.

Philosophy

I believe in learning for the sake of learning and I am very passionate about the subjects I tutor. I love working with people and helping them realize their potential. I help my students understand and remember material better by encouraging them to visualize concepts, organize ideas, use simple but memorable analogies, and of course practice problem solving. I believe in treating students as individuals and creating the best learning environment for each student to succeed.

Subjects I Tutor

Physical Science

Chemistry: Regents Chemistry, SAT Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Introductory College Chemistry, Organic Chemistry
Biology: Living Environment Regents, SAT II Biology, AP Biology
Middle School Science: 7th and 8th grade, 8th Grade State Test

Biology,

Biology

I have a degree in Chemistry with concentration in Biochemistry, so I have taken many college level biology courses such as general biology, molecular biology and developmental biology. I am currently working on a master's in Biology Education. I have taught a Living Environment Regents class for 5 years and had a 100% passing rate. I have also tutored Biology for over 15 years, ever since I was a college student.
Chemistry

Chemistry

I have a B.S. in Chemistry. I started to tutor Chemistry when I was still in college for the college Chemistry department and have continued to tutor privately ever since. I normally tutor Regents Chemistry, Introductory College Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. My tutoring experience adds up to well over 15 years. During tutoring sessions I like to explain the concept often using, models, drawings, videos or animations. Once I feel like my student has the concept down we move on to practice problems to test that understanding. I also help students tackle challenging homework assignments by identifying where there is a lack of understanding and facilitating learning in that area.

Everything Was Great

Elina was an amazing teacher. She was not only extremely personable, but also great at keeping the content fun and interesting. She did a great job at teaching my son chemistry for the regions test. If you're looking for a excellent teacher- I would highly recommend Elina.

Elena, 6 lessons with Elina

Excellent tutor!

My daughter worked with Elina on Earth Science Regent preparation. She recognized my daughter's weak areas and her strength and taught her useful tips and strategies on improving her performance for the Regents. Elina is a very effective tutor! She is able to challenge a student and prepare him for the test even in a short period of time. Besides that, Elina is a very open minded and responsive person, accepting any feedback and willing to discuss any parents worries about child's performance. We would highly recommend her! Thanks to her expertise, my daughter got high score on regent exam! Thank you, Elina!
