Personal Description:

My name is Kirstie and I am currently in my fourth and final year at Imperial College London studying Mechanical Engineering. I am currently achieving a high 2.1 something I have worked hard to achieve. As a result I understand the pressures that students can face when trying to achieve their desired grades, and the confidence that a little extra one-on-one help can give.

Tutoring Experience:

Previously I have helped to run summer residential 'Tech Camps' for teenagers (between ages 8-15), assisting in teaching them practical engineering skills through fun activities. As well as the camps I have done some informal tutoring (for friends of family) helping them to increase their grades in GCSE maths from C/D to A/A*s. Although new to First Tutors I hope you will give me the chance to help.

Tutoring Approach:

Whether the lesson is focused on recapping the current lessons or exam revision, the main focus of the lesson will be to provide an actual understanding of the subject, rather than a simple ability to answer the questions set. A good understanding gives the student the ability to attempt to answer all the questions well, even if the particular question style is new and previously unseen (something which can stump many students). I have found this is possible by teaching the student using the examples, but then asking the student to attempt to teach me the same material: explaining as they go along the steps they are taking. I find that if students are able to explain to someone else how to complete the questions they have a good understanding of the material and are able to achieve a higher grade band.
