Personal Description:

A recognised Science of Learning Specialist, I have completed a PhD in the Science of Human Learning at the University of Melbourne, focusing on the neuroscience of learning and how it impacts on student achievement and wellbeing.

I provide specialist educational coaching in one of the following ways:
(a) at my home-office in Emerald;
(b) at your home if you live close to Emerald; and / or
(c) on-line via Edmodo, Zoom or Skype.

Introductory sessions are at no-charge and usually conducted online. That way, I can get an idea of your particular learning needs, explain how I would work, and you can decide whether it's right for you.

Tuition Experience:

Many years experience in teaching, coaching and mentoring school students, especially those with learning or behavioural challenges. Sadly, I am seeing an increasing number of students for whom the traditional classroom just does not work - including those with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, anxiety, depression, and self-confidence issues.
My focus is always on the student's *learning*, and their approach to it. In effect, students learn what works best in learning, which strategies work, and which do not, and this knowledge can be applied to any subject, skill or content.
As Einstein himself said, "The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education!"

Tutoring Approach:

The evidence on learning is really clear:
1. Establish a relationship with the student, building mutual trust and respect.
2. Identify the current level of each student, and their personal drives and passions.
3. Create motivation to learn, and setting achievable, realistic goals.
4. Provide strategies for reaching those goals.
5. Give plenty of opportunities for practice, and make them fun.
6. Give generous dollops of constructive, positive and detailed feedback.
7. Repeat.

I do this because it works - and thousands of studies from around the confirm that it does.

This approach works equally well with students with particular learning difficulties, or who just don't fit in with traditional education, or even adults who are returning to studies (often tertiary) after a break.

The rates advertised are the standard charges that apply - subsidised prices are available for specific circumstances, please enquire directly. I can also assist with NDIS funding applications for students who have been diagnosed with specific conditions.
