I am passionate about helping young people to become the best versions of themselves. I work with students from secondary school through to degree level, learning about their specific goals and helping them turn these into a reality. Lessons are planned around the specific student and their needs, ensuring they have maximum impact. I believe that learning best takes place in a friendly and fun environment, where students are encouraged to redefine the limits of their potential.
I am a two time Paralympic gold medallist (Beijing and London) and self-development expert. I have co-authored the GCSE Study Skills Guide and Be Your Best Self, and worked with over 6000 students to date, helping them to unlock their potential, overcome challenges and achieve more. I specialise in helping young people develop confidence, perform better in exams and deliver better results, and I've seen consistent improvement in these areas with students outperforming expected grades, thriving under stress and feeling happier.
