I believe that students guide their own learning; I cannot take the material and make you magically learn it. As such, I base my teachings in a collaborative nature - Students should come geared with questions and an inquisitive mind. We will work together to tackle difficult questions and ensure that by the end of it you have a clear understanding.
I am a current Masters of Psychology (Educational and Developmental) student at ACU. I have extensive experience in the mental health field, specifically within behavioural schools and in disability. I am passionate about academia and take an actualization approach, meaning I believe that, with assistance when necessary, everyone can reach their full potential. I wish to share the knowledge I have acquired through my studies and work with others and share my passion for study and help you achieve the best!
Hourly rate is locked in, however, we can negotiate an alternative price if money is tight.
If you have to cancel a session, no worries! Please provide as much notice as possible, as this will allow another student to take the time slot.

Kamaruka Education Centre – Teacher’s Aide (July 2016 – Present)
Kamaruka was established to cater for a growing number of boys whose needs cannot be accommodated in the mainstream classroom. While the program is designed for boys with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), several boys with low self-esteem, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), intellection impairments and general deviant behaviour benefited from the program. My role consists of assisting teachers and relevant support workers in the administration of academic classes and behavioural support plans.

Kenneth and I met at Deakin University, where we both studied Psychology at a undergraduate level.
He has a calm, positive style of teaching and is sensitive to his student's needs. Kenneth is professional and responsible, has a great sense of humour and creates a warm and positive learning environment.
I am a fellow student of Kenneth's, and have worked with him on multiple occasions over several years. Kenneth is extremely approachable, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. Kenneth is a very positive person who has the ability to explain difficult concepts in easy to understand language.
