I Have a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a Double Major in English Literature, a Double Major in South East Asian Political Science and a Major in Anthropology. (Charles Darwin University 1996).
I studied a Diploma in Conservation and Land Management to improve my knowledge in climate change, conservation and environmental protection. I volunteer with Friends of Mitchell Creek Catchment Landcare Group in Palmerston and visit schools through Darwin and Palmerston to encourage environmental activities engagement. In 2013 I won 2 NT Awards for my volunteer work in Mitchell Creek - the NT Individual Land-care Award and the Inaugural NRM Individual Champion Award.

My approach is a strengths based approach, this means my primary goal is to listen and work with each student or client to assist them at their speed to become confident, lifelong learners with a sense of purpose.
The benefit of using the services of a private tutor is that a specific subject or skill is taught to the student at their own pace often in a one to one setting and this additional academic support ideally allows the student to improve their knowledge or skills more rapidly than in a classroom setting.
I am happy to work with the student's school to develop a smooth learning experience for each student.
