What people are saying
“Thanks so much for the work that you did with our Year 11 ATAR students. They were thoroughly engaged and you even fired up one of the relief teachers who was supervising the session! She really enjoyed the session and thought that you were very engaging.”
“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!”
“It was so good to have you in. I was lucky to have my Year 12 class this arvo. At the very end of the class I asked them what they thought. They said that it was the best study session they have ever had. A couple showed me their A3 mind maps they had created since the talk. One girl did an awesome mind map where she collated your information from today and highlighted strategies she currently used and identified all the new tools she can try.”
“Thanks so much for coming to Mandurah Baptist College on Friday morning the 18th of March and talking to our Year 10s. I certainly benefitted from the strategies you’ve outlined and saw ways in which I could apply these to my own classes. I know the kids got a lot out of it too.
You made it fun and engaging and that’s exactly what they needed!”
“I’m one of the St Mary’s girls you visited today and I’m writing to thank you for speaking to us. 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!”
“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. 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.”
