Kirstie is a recent Mechanical Engineering graduate from Imperial College London, a university currently ranked 4th in the UK. She is now a PhD candidate within the Bio-Engineering department, developing ankle prosthesis for blast injury patients, using complex mathematics and scientific models on a daily basis. Alongside her doctoral studies, she acts as a graduate teaching assistant at Imperial, leading undergraduate tutorial sessions.
Kirstie is able to share her knowledge through tutoring, specialising in Maths (including Mechanics) and Physics at A-Level and GCSE, as well as Science at 11+ and 13+. Her previous experience includes tutoring maths at GCSE level, where the client really engaged with her methodical, yet personal approach. She can also mentor students through STEM applications at University, drawing on her own experience to provide valuable insight and encouragement through the UCAS process.
In her spare time Kirstie enjoys watching rugby and is a keen runner and baker.
“My son got a scholarship (we found out today), so we are very grateful for all Emmanuel did. My son really enjoyed the tutorials; they gave him confidence and polished his exam technique.”
Tom Fenton is a marvellous tutor, striking a perfect balance of erudition, encouragement, judicious pressure, kindness and humour. His work with my daughter produced stellar results in the form of three scholarships; I can’t recommend him too highly.
