Wordsmith extraordinaire and Essay Master helps Adelaide students plan, draft and polish their essay assignments

Methodology

At the risk of getting too zen-monk on you here: "In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities and in the expert’s mind, there are few." [Shunryu Suzuki].

I encourage and uplift the beginners mind in all my students - thereby teaching them how to learn anything, adapt to changing circumstances and build resilience for a big, full life.

This is my responsibility, and while I take that very seriously, I don’t take myself too seriously. My students find me approachable, fun-loving, and trustworthy; ironically the exact ingredients you need for an ideal learning-environment.

Background

I'm an inspired and inspiring visionary that loves working with young people.
I live for the "Aha!" moments, when the dots are all joined and suddenly the student gets it!
It's what makes my job the best job in the world and why I'm psyched to get up everyday.

I'm relatable, compassionate and have a brilliant sense of humour. Plus, you name it - I've done it.
Studied, succeeded, failed, moved schools, graduated, worked, gone AWOL, knuckled down and chilled out.
So, I've the answers to loads of your questions and a firm intuition for what, how and when you need to hear it.

More than this - I'm a total romantic when it comes to education.
I passionately design exercises and activities that make for fun, engaging, awe-inspiring learning.
I believe that a love of learning is like the lighting of a fire, not the filling of a pale.

I'm a trusted mentor, tough critic and almost always the loudest cheer-squad leader for my students.
I love what I do and I can't wait to show you another side to learning.
