Hi I'm Karen and I currently manage my own business as a Registered Nutritionist. I'm qualified in Health Sciences, with majors including Health Promotion, Family Society and Health and Nutrition.

Methodology

I apply the socratic method to teaching for critical thinking. I base my classes on preparation, and structure the beginning and ending of the sessions for to students improve in the most relevant areas. I approach topics by active listening and probing with open ended questions, role reversal, effective time management, in a quiet environment, presenting manageable steps, giving examples, writing directions for assignments, relating material to real life scenarios, brainstorming ideas, highlighting significant data, paraphrasing information, asking questions, providing additional useful materials, drill rote, restating information, routine, technology, visual tools and familiarity with vocabulary.

Background

I have 6 years work experience in the health industry, in roles including Fitness Instructor, Program Director, Weightloss Consultant, Disability Employment Consultant and Nutritionist. I have mentored individuals in the following scenarios;
- Leading female individuals and groups of up to 10 in fitness training sessions
- Conducting 1hr initial consultations, health assessments and promoting company programs/products
- Weekly private weightloss consultations to individuals and sometimes groups of up to 3 clients
- Consulting a caseload of 160 disability employment participants, to attend appropriate health services, develop job skills and gain sustainable employment
- Providing private nutrition consultations to individuals and presenting nutrition group seminars to local health related organisations eg Psychology, Physiotherapy, Sports Clubs, Personal Training

Cancellation Policy
Once a tutor lesson has been arranged, I Karen Gaugg consider this booking to be final, subject to this cancellation policy. That is, the student agrees to pay for the arranged lesson unless specified otherwise in this policy. Note that if a lesson is cancelled for any reason, the student must notify the tutor immediately.

Acceptable reasons for cancellation

The student will not be charged for the lesson if the lesson is cancelled solely due to:

the tutor cancelling the lesson for any reason, or failing to be at the agreed place at the agreed time for any reason;
the student being sick (as certified by a medical practitioner);
the student and the tutor agreeing to cancel the lesson without charge;
the student cancelling the lesson with sufficient notice;


Unacceptable reasons for cancellation

The student will be charged for the lesson if the lesson is cancelled due to:

the student鈥檚 lateness, including but not limited to lateness due to transport delays;
a reasonably foreseeable or regular event which would otherwise satisfy any of the acceptable reasons for cancellation above, with the exception of a court appearance;
any event which is unable to be rescheduled due to a lack of planning by the student;
other work or study commitments;
any unexplained failure to be at the agreed place at the agreed time.
Furthermore, the student will be charged for the lesson if:

the student fails to give sufficient notice of the cancellation of the lesson, unless the lesson is cancelled for an acceptable reason as defined in this document; or
the student鈥檚 failure to give immediate notice of the cancellation causes significant inconvenience to the tutor.

Cancellation period

For the purposes of this policy, sufficient notice shall be:

if the lesson is arranged less than 1 week in advance, 24 hours
if the lesson is arranged at least 1 week but less than 2 weeks in advance, 48 hours
