Information about Antonio Elia

Tutoring sessions will be held in Imperial College, South Kensington Campus.
Harvard Research Fellow, currently Postdoc in Imperial College London.
I have extensive experience in tutoring Undergrads, Master and PhD students in several scientific subjects.
I have completed my PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College in 2015. I am currently Research Associate in the Biophysics of Hearing and Neural Information Processing group, department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London. I have recently been awarded with a prestigious Marie Curie Fellowship and will move to Harvard University in 2019.
I have extensive experience in tutoring Undergrads, Master and PhD students in several scientific subjects including Maths, Physics, Statistics, Stress Analysis, Mechanics and Thermodynamics. In particular I have held a number of lectures for several courses in Imperial College, one to one supervision for PhD students and tutoring session for small groups of undergrads (8-10 people).

Experience: Teaching is a major component of my being a scientist. The act of transferring knowledge represents an ethical, professional and social responsibility that has to be accomplished with enthusiasm and positivity. My teaching philosophy tends to embrace some fundamental values that I believe to be very important in the design of the right learning environment:
Balancing theory and practice.
A theoretical approach is at the very base of a solid understanding of the fundamental principles that govern the laws of physics. On the other hand, practical examples strengthen the embracing of concepts, making knowledge readily available and applicable. During my teaching experiences I have learnt that a balanced combination of theory and practice is a winning approach that enhances problem solving. Giving the correct answer to a problem is certainly important. Understanding the reason for which that answer is the correct one is even more important. This process develops critical thinking in students and improves their problem solving capabilities.
Engaging students.
I like to be easy-going and dynamic in order to help student feel comfortable in the session. During my teaching I have made increasing use of digital resources: not just course hand-outs but also online material, presentations, forums, support materials and source codes. Students provided positive feedbacks about the complementary material suggested, which was usually tailored on their age and background. This strategy has proved successful and is, thus, part of my current teaching practice.

Assess Teaching and Learning.
Improving my teaching performances is one of the topics at the center of my professional development. By means of individual assessments I manage to identify mismatches between what the students have learned and what they were taught. This learning assessment also guides the tuning of my teaching activities. Since every student is different I aim at tailoring my teaching methods according to an individual’s strengths and weaknesses. Furthermore, not every student chases the same interests and goals, which requires personalized teaching strategies.

Antonio is a fantastic tutor. He has an extremely warm and welcoming personality. His introduction session was really useful with a clear plan for study agreed. On top of helping my son grasp his Mathematics, Antonio has been an inspiration to him, acting as a catalyst to follow broader aspirations within academia. Thank you so much Antonio for your positive effect.
