I have fostered the love of teaching since I became a teaching assistant in 2003. From then on, I have tutored and mentored students from primary school to university level in the US, Hong Kong, and Australia. I help students with a variety of subjects. I work with students in IB programme as well.

I am also a trained biologist with a background in drug discovery and translational research, a branch of scientific research that seeks new therapeutics to treat diseases. I am currently undertaking a PhD degree in digestive physiology at the University of Melbourne.

I’ve loved knowledge and learning since I was a kid which mainly manifested itself as a lifelong love of science and the way it explains why things ‘do what they do’. 🌏

Based in Ringwod East, I tutor across Melbourne in Primary Maths, Primary English, and Primary/Secondary Science, as well as general mentoring, to help support my rapidly-growing indoor plant collection. 🌱

I have a relaxed and friendly personality, an easy-going and patient teaching style, and find people connect strongly with my bubbly energy and passion for all things STEAM. 🔬🌴🌋⛈️🐛🚀

I love gaining and sharing knowledge as a mean of making our society better. I enjoy giving back to our next generation by helping them to overcome the challenges they face. I have experience in university and laboratory teaching as well as secondary school sciences and maths tutoring. I enjoy finding new ways to explain things to help others understand concepts from various angles.

I am a PhD candidate in Microbiology and Immunology. I specialise in vaccine development and biological control of vector-borne diseases. I am fascinated by infectious agents that make people sick and find ways to fight them. I am a native Spanish speaker and also fluent in Russian.

I am a lifelong learner! As a child (and to this day!) you can find me either exploring the outdoors or inside reading a book. I decided to become a teacher so I could keep learning new things and inspire my students to find answers to their questions through trial and error. I am both primary and secondary trained and always remind those I teach that making mistakes is a crucial part of learning and the only way we can improve. I have taught overseas in Italy and the Pacific Islands and have a deep love for all cultures and appreciate the varieties of backgrounds we all come from that make us unique. Learning brings people together and I look forward to helping my students discover new things! 

My motto is: ‘No-one can do everything, but everyone can do something!’
