BIOGRAPHY & INTERESTS

I am currently working towards a PhD in Rehabilitation and Assistive Robotics where I am looking at the use of proprioception and prosthetics in the treatment of neuropathic pain. Outside of the PhD I am a post gradate teaching assistant for computer science and a supervisor for the UCL Eurobot Robotics team.

I often spend time at the theatre. This year I’ve seen about a dozen west-end shows, sometimes with friends and family and sometimes on my own. I find that the creative expression that often comes from experiencing the theatre an enjoyable contrast to my science heavy life. 

EXPERIENCE & APPROACH

I have a broad range of experiences mentoring which began at the University of Washington where I was a maths tutor for two years. I have helped mentor students in understanding fundamental mathematical and engineering principles so that they could apply it to a given engineering project. I believe that bad grades do not equate to lost opportunities nor the loss of achieving whatever individuals want from life. It takes patience, effort and understanding to both succeed and convince someone else that they can succeed too.

TESTIMONIAL

“Reni is brilliant! She has gone above and beyond what any tutor I have ever had has done, in terms of going through my past exam papers, making me revision packs etc. Thank you so much for putting us in contact with her.” A Level Student, November 2018
