My name is Mr. Elenin. I am a tutor specialised in general Science at key stage 3 (lower school) and Chemistry at key stages 4 and 5 (upper school GCSE and A-level). I am aware of both the UK-style local secondary curriculum by teaching within UK secondary schools since September 2020 (full-time) as part of my PGCE teacher training.
I am aware of the Cambridge international curriculum (IGCSE and A-level) through my own schooling in 2007-2008. I completed AS Chemistry (A) and AS Maths (A) at an international school (Cambridge international examinations board) in Alexandria, Egypt. This helped me re-integrate into the UK A-level curriculum in 2008-2009, upon my return.
I really look forward to working with people of different cultures and backgrounds and creating tailored learning plans for individual students.
Good luck :)
I am a patient, empathetic, and understanding tutor who will tailor the session to meet the needs of the student. I follow a question-learning approach, where the main focus is to use exam-style questions as practice and to identify areas for improvement. I generally run my lessons at the school-level by having an introductory 5-minute fun ice-breaker activity (e.g. mini-quiz or quick puzzle or real-world applications), then the focus (40 minutes) of the lesson on the student's school homework or current topic being studied at school and then I close off by setting new questions (15 minutes) to see if the knowledge has been digested. I have a flexible approach to tutoring and the student is encouraged to stop me at any time if they need me to go over a particular concept one more time.
Practice-based learning via questions and worked examples:
I enjoyed simplifying complex concepts to students and relating them to day-to-day examples, models, analogies, and mnemonics. I try to identify the methodology used during questions and suggest alternative correct and quicker methodologies to my students. Thus, giving them more time to practice at their own pace and achieve their target. I do my best to promote a 'can-do' relaxed/friendly attitude, where mistakes are welcome. This can help students develop a good work ethic (regardless of talent/innate ability). Practice helps to make the concepts easier to memorize (not just understood) and achieve targets.
