One of Figtree’s science specialists, Tierney holds a Masters in Neuroscience from the University of Edinburgh. She completed her undergraduate degree at Oxford University, where she studied biomedical sciences, specialising in neuroscience. 

Tierney has loved the sciences since school, and as a tutor, she looks to share this passion with her students through engaging and creative sessions. As well as tutoring GCSE and A-level students across the three sciences, she is one of our specialist 11-Plus tutors – putting her analytical mind to work to support children as they get to grips with brand-new concepts.

When she’s not tutoring, Tierney likes to explore her creative side. She is currently taking contemporary dance classes and a print-making course.
