I enjoy helping students to improve their grades, confidence and self-esteem. Seeing students grasp concepts they were previously struggling with and applying those concepts in real world examples is so rewarding.

What are your top study tips for Students?
- Do your study in a quiet place, away from your phone, iPad or TV, so you can really focus on remembering concepts and ideas. Having a designated area for study (such as a desk, the dining room table, etc) is a great way to condition your brain into focusing when you’re in that area and avoid any distractions.
- Taking breaks in-between long study sessions and breaking your study up into steps or sections. You’re going to find it difficult to focus if you’re studying for hours on end, so take breaks after each hour of study to ensure you don’t overwork your brain and can stay focused during study times.
What are your top study tips for Parents?
- Taking the time to understand what your child is studying, what they’re struggling with and what their strengths are will allow you to help them in a variety of ways, not only with their studies, but with their self-esteem and confidence. Organisation, positive reinforcement and encouragement are some great ways to improve your student’s academic confidence.
- Impromptu trivia – at dinner, in the car or while getting ready for school – is a great way to test your child’s knowledge and help them to memorise concepts and get their brains working.
What book would you recommend to your Students?
The Harry Potter series is a great way for kids of all ages to get into reading; it’s the first series I read as a child and really got me into reading! It’s easy to read and everyone is familiar with the story. The first 3 books especially are excellent for younger students, and as the story progresses it becomes more mature and appropriate for older students as well.
