Post-Doctoral biologist with years of academic experience

I am a post-Doctorate biologist with years of experience in leading academic institutions such as Oxford University and King’s College London. I am passionate about teaching and student mentoring. I am constantly striving for excellent educational material, featuring high quality illustrations, as I believe in using the latest technology to facilitate my student’s actual comprehension of the wonderful science that is biology and not merely memorising! At the same time I consider mentoring a calling; a great responsibility but highly rewarding.

Throughout my years as an academic, I have had the opportunity to guide a number of medicine and dentistry undergraduates as well as PhD students through their graduation, motivating them for high performance without undermining the demanding nature of their studies and providing support where needed.
In addition, I have tutored students for preparation for SAT and A-level exams, who achieved their first choice of university.
My experience in academia has provided me with a thorough understanding and appreciation of the student profile that is desirable in leading universities. Finally, as I have extensive experience in writing articles for publication in renowned journals and presenting in international conferences and meetings as well as in multiple interviews, I am able to provide high level coaching for interviews for entry into competitive institutions as well as personal statement coaching.

I only take on a limited number of students, as I want to be able provide only the highest level of teaching and mentoring.

BSc Lab-based Project

Eleni was my appointed supervisor during my final year undergraduate lab-based project. She was responsible for teaching me experimental techniques and helping me with my literature research and dissertation writing. She was an extremely supportive and patient teacher and I felt very comfortable to seek help with any problems I encountered in my project. As final year students, we were expected to absorb a lot of new information in a short amount of time and I was very fortunate that Eleni was very methodical about explaining everything, such that I did not become overwhelmed. I also appreciated that she made sure I met my deadline for submitting my dissertation by stressing the importance of regular progress meetings. My experience in my project was thoroughly enjoyable and it motivated me to pursue PhD studies in cell biology.

Strong tutor, lovely person!

Eleni was my daughter’s tutor for A-level biology in 2010. Marianna was in her final year of A-level biology school and we had concerns about her performance in past papers. Eleni tutored her from February util her exam and Marianna managed to get a B and get into her first choice, in Bristol university. She had a very good relationship with Eleni and felt much more confident since they started lessons together. I didn’t interfere very much, as this is my approach in general, but I do know that Eleni helped a lot with structuring the longer essay questions, which is what Marianna was mainly struggling with and loosing marks on those questions. She also helped in general with keeping up with the workload and not feeling swamped.
Eleni was a very pleasant and polite person and I would recommend her to others.
