The presentations and workshops I deliver are based on a combination of the best research and personal experience (particularly my years studying law and psychology at university).

Since every group of students is different, the presentations below can be modified to best suit the needs of your students. Just let me know the topics you would like covered and I can tailor make a presentation/workshop for your group.

I speak regularly on the following topics:

creative study methods (e.g. visual note-taking)
exam preparation/strategies
procrastination and how to motivate yourself at anytime
the myth of multitasking and the power of focus
stress management
getting organised
time management
managing technological distractions
goal setting/action planning

Most workshops/presentations run for 1 hour however they can be shortened or lengthened. We are flexible!

Here’s what others have said about the presentations/workshops I deliver:

“We have had many guest speakers discussing study skills but none were as helpful as you. For once I was fully focused and interested in your presentation, everyone was. I’m really grateful for the awesome tips you gave us. Congratulations on actually making a difference in the way teenagers study today”
-Year 10 Student, Corpus Christi College

“It was great to hear how many students went home and spoke to their parents about your presentation. I’ve also received fabulous feedback from our staff – yours really is the best Study Skills presentation I have seen!”
-Head of Year, Wesley College
