Elena is a fantastic tutor who has endlessly helped me transform my dissertation. Taking me slowly through each section of my report ensuring i understand the background principles before moving on. Elena has helped me ensure my dissertation is not only a good read but has correct psychological points that stand strong in the report. I would have been lost without Elena's help over these last few months and i cant recommend Elena as a tutor enough. Thank you Elena me and my dissertation are very grateful for your time.

Testimonials

Elena was immensely helpful in my preparations for the DClinPsy interview. I could not have done it without her. Thank you so much, Monika

Aida - Tavistock Tutors Elena was lovely to work with. She’s engaging and explains concepts clearly using contextual examples. She’s friendly and approachable. I didn’t think l could do 2 hours straight of statistics but time flew by! I would say yes, l found her inspiring.

Eyup - Tavistock Tutors At the beginning of university terms, I was struggling with a few assignments (statistics and research methods specifically). I had contacted many tutoring companies but none of them were able to meet my requirements i.e. some of them were just looking to get their money, some had conditions of how many sessions you could book and some didn't have the necessary qualifications that were suited for my needs. I had then found Tavistock tutors, they put me through with one of their best statistical tutors they had. I got an email straight away from Elena and we started working on the assignment and in a few sessions, the assignment was all up to date and I was ready to submit it with great confidence. Tavistock tutors is an amazing company that is worth the investment, they provide you with top-class tutors, continuous support outside your lessons as well as being able to match you up with the correct tutor. whenever I need a tutor, all I do is message them on WhatsApp with my requirements and in a day or two, they've found me a perfect tutor. So far I've had great success with tutors in the fields of statistics and research methods as well as medical-related. Really happy with the services I've been given, don't be put off by the membership price, it's worth it ;).

Adrina - Tavistock Tutors Elena is an outstanding tutor who I look forward to Skyping with. She is thorough, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. She has given me a great deal of confidence and inspires me to continue learning!

Olivia - Tavistock Tutors I had a fantastic experience with my tutor Elena and Tavistock Tutors. They were very well organized and made the entire experience so seamless and easy for me. I passed my assignment with great marks and the experience was much less stressful than if I had tried to complete the assignment without Elena's help!
