About me

I am a qualified Structural Engineer, educated to a PhD level. I have earned my first degree in Civil Engineering with a First class honours, an MSc in Structural Engineering with distinction and a PhD in Computational Structural Mechanics from Imperial College London. In the past I have worked for a couple of consultancy companies as a Structural Engineer where multidisciplinary skills and team work were essential. I find teaching to be invigorating and get a great deal of satisfaction both from being innovative with teaching and from seeing my students reach their full potentials and succeed. I tutor/mentor students from the first year till the final year of their undergraduate degree, MSc and PhD level by providing them online tuition.

Tutor Experience

I have been both tutoring and mentoring students from different backgrounds in undergraduate and post-graduate subjects in Civil/Structural Engineering for the last six years, mainly online. I have also done lots of hours on some of the common subjects among General Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering. For the last few years, my students have achieved not only their desired grades but also excelled in their field of studies.
I have been tutoring GCSE Maths, A-level Maths and Mechanics, undergraduate and post-graduate students in Civil/Structural Engineering field and some subjects of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering for the last few years:
- Structural Analysis
- Structural Mechanics
- Structural Dynamics
- Solid Mechanics and Strength of Materials
- Structural Design
- Finite Elements
- Engineering Maths
- Fluid Mechanics (Hydraulics)
- Soil Mechanics (Geotechnics)
- Stress Analysis
- Aerospace Structures
- Aircraft Structures and Materials

Abdullah - Civil Engineering

lovely teacher! 100% would recommend


A big vote for Shirin Written by Trevor S I am currently in the middle of my part time Civil Engineering degree while working a full time job. I felt I needed support and encountered Shirin for online learning. It has made a huge difference to my work (I was sceptical at first about 'online tuition') and could not be happier! Shirin is direct yet understanding in her tutoring style and this is clearly the most effective technique for any undergraduate. Shirin's expertise and knowledge of degree exams for Civil is invaluable and I am wholly impressed with her online tutoring. Highly recommended and a pleasure to know.
