I'm a Macq. student studying Other.


Per hour




Started uni
[Not taking new students AT ALL. Not taking students for summer sessions either]

Hey there,
My name is Yelka and I will be completing my honours project in 2017 for Bachelor of Psychology(Hon) at Mq university.

I have been a private tutor for many years, specializing in high school to HSC mathematics, Science (biology, chemistry, physics), and English. However, I have now expanded my services to university students as I believe there should always be help available to everyone, not just the younger generations.

I am also an experienced Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) leader at the university for various units, including psyc104, 247, 248, 349, as well as PHYS149.

The units I am comfortable with tutoring and have gained excellent grades in can be seen on this tutoring profile.

I also provide online essay and report feedback. This is strictly online via word document for $20 per full assignment review. I comment the hell out of your assignment, focusing on critical analysis, structure and wording, and content, then i send it back for you to fix.

For psyc104/105, psy234/235 i only provide essay/report feedback, not actual face-to-face tutoring.

My pay rate can be found on this page - I am always able to negotiate if you struggle financially (I know first hand what it's like, I feel your pain)
If you're interested, send me a message :D

Yelka was my tutor for PSY349. She was a lifesaver. An awesome person and a wonderful tutor! Honestly can't even think how I would've done without her. If you need some help with stats, Yelka is the right person for it!

Yelka was my tutor for third year stats at Macquarie and also ran the PAL sessions. Her help was invaluable. Yelka is very knowledgable, reliable and generous with both her time and knowledge. As a foreigner and a mature age student, I also found Yelka supportive, non-assuming and non-judgmental. I highly recommend Yelka as a tutor!

Yelka tutored me for the condensed PSY248 over summer. She was a lifesaver, really helpful with both assignments and coursework and really gave me an understanding and ability to comprehend the content taught in lectures when I was struggling.

Would definitely recommend her, incredibly helpful tutor.

I have had a few tutors and Yelka is awesome. Always prepared, great energy, works fast and gets through lots of content or is happy to slow it down if that is what you would prefer. 10/10

Yelka has helped me understand statistics! She is clear and concise with helping understand the complex language of statistics, which is hard to do. She is patient and approachable and very relatable, but more importantly she knows what she is talking about. 10/10 if you need a tutor, look no further

Can't thank her enough

Yelka is an approachable, patient and knowledgeable tutor. She is capable of re-interpreting content from different angles and puts in extra effort with live demonstrations. Most of she makes PAL fun! Any student of hers is at a great advantage!

Yelka has been my tutor for roughly a year now. Initially it was for maths as my marks were below average now they are well above. Since then she has helped me with a wide range of my senior subjects such as biology and English. Without her I would not of been able to achieve the marks I got.

I think the reason Yelka is such a good tutor is because she teaches without judgement as well as being encouring and supportive.

I would definitely recommend Yelka as there is no other tutor like her !!

Yelka is a fantastic tutor, who is more than willing to explain the same topic again and again until you understand it - without judging!

Yelka has helped so many of us with her PAL lessons, pushing me to reach very high marks. Her strength lies in her ability to adapt her teaching style do each individuals' personal needs.

Booking in for lessons with Yelka would be money well spent and 100% worth your while!
