About Me

Hello, I am Despina.

I hold an M.Sc of Information Technology, with a major in Spatial Technologies from the University of Melbourne and a B.Sc in Informatics Engineering from the Technological Univerisity of Crete in Greece. Moreover, I hold a Certificate in "Big Data: Mathematical Modelling" from the Queensland University of Technology and a Certificate in "Earth Observation from Space" from the European Space Agency (ESA).

I am already working as a tutor for the Greek language and Mathematics in a Greek School.

I have extensive tutoring experience in a variety of fields especially in Networking & Digital Communications (Telecommunications systems) and Mathematics. I have tutored in "Satellite Communications,” “Industrial Automation & Information Systems” and “Microelectronics, as well as in linear algebra, Applied mathematics, Advanced Calculus, Discrete Mathematics and Probabilities & Statistics.

My personal interests are in the field of Telecommunications with a significant stake in Satellite Communications, in which I instructed the lab part of the course in the Department of Applied Informatics of the Technological Educational Institute of Crete in Greece for more than 3 years.

I have helped students to learn and analyze the logic behind networking and maths. I have experience working preparing the high school students as well as the college students for their institute exams.

I am experienced in students with "Dyscalculia" disability and my strongest feeling about math teaching came when I achieved to prepare a student with dyscalculia for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).

Through these tutoring and counselling positions, I have learned how to best teach each age group.

I have been awarded "best grades" awards in Mathematics of Spatial Information from the University of Melbourne in 2018, as well as Advanced Calculus II, Applied Mathematics, and Linear Algebra during 2014-2015.

Furthermore, my love for teaching led me to obtain a TESOL Certificate from Arizona State University.

Pieces of my work have been published in international peer-reviewed journals and have been presented at international conferences.
