testimonials

“I’m a year ten student at Corpus Christi Collage and today you visited us and spoke about studying and the techniques. We have had many guest speakers discussing this topic but none were as helpful as you. At the beginning of the day I wasn’t looking forward to the 50 minutes we had to spend sitting down and listening to a boring speaker, but for once I was fully focused and interested in your presentation, everyone was. I’m really grateful for the awesome tips you gave us and I’ve already put some of them into action, bookmarked your website and liked your page on Facebook. So I just wanted to say a huge thank you and a congratulations on actually making a difference in the way teenagers study today.”

I found everything you said so relatable and it definitely gave me motivation and ideas of better ways to approach study. I’ve even gone away and made a mind map summarising the points you spoke about! I really enjoyed it, thanks again!”

Over 100 people attended the Learning Fundamentals seminar, many parents with their children. Jane used her educational insights from Psychology to lead the audience with meaningful examples on how to improve memory and set goals. Evidence of her legal training was reflected in the clarity and persuasion of her professional presentation. Jane’s energy was contagious and her skilled input an outstanding support for our students.”
