Student Support is for YOU
You FIRST is my concern
To be seen to be believed. That's how good this stuff is. Tap the picture below to watch why this is for you! This video explains what we cover and how that helps you have a much better life. These bird videos teach us a lot. It also shows you that I am real, authentic and can get along with you. I'm not Instagram perfect, I'm just me, and you can be that too!
Before we start tutoring...
Before we start tutoring you and I will have a phone or Skype call. I will find out a bit about you what you want or don't, out of your study and this tutoring with me. You can ask me questions. It's important you want to do this, or at least give it a try. I’ll help you understand the benefits of what you get which is a lot more than improved academic performance.
Please have a look around the website. There are videos for you involving animals on most pages. You can ignore the suit videos, those are for parents. The Student Success Tutor YouTube channel will also have other videos so please subscribe. It is my role to be authentic and real, I leave my mistakes visible so you learn it's OK to try new things and not get stuck. Improvement is all that matters. If improvement is not happening then we will use these tools and skills to figure out why.
It is my sincere passion to help you do better in your studies so you can then have a really amazing life. The skills you can learn give you the tools to handle the hard stuff and make the good things really enjoyable. Your education is the focus, but this will give you the ability to use all these skills in every aspect of your life.
In our tutoring/coaching I help you hone your skills and abilities. If you were a tennis player this would be like having Rodger Federer or Serena Williams being your coach. I have lived all of these things I teach you. I have lived all the mistakes and looked different because I did things a better way. As you will hear me say in most of the videos ‘this will transform every area of your life!’ These skills sets will improve your friendships, how you relate to your parents, handling unpleasant things that happen in life and more.
If you really don't want to do this you need to tell me and we will stop. I will offer ways for you to understand your resistances, attitudes and motivation. But it is 100% your choice to do anything I suggest.
It's important we get along and that we work together.
If you are willing I can also help you work through some of the hardest things you face in your life. This will help give you options so you can approach this from the place that I talked about in the videos.
I'm looking forward to having a chat and putting you on the road to a successful and much happier life.
What you need to know
about me is I'll be me
♦ I will only share with you what I have used myself in study and in life. 100% of what I share I have extensively used and tested.
♦ My approach is to get to know you and support you in a friendly manner with encouragement, so you can excel. Watch how the wild animals relate to me in the videos, trusting my approach.
♦ My mission is to help you be your unique self, to assist you to discover how this enriches the world and creates a happy life. It's no fun being who you are not, and it hinders your learning.
♦ Things you share with me stay with me. I'll always ask permission to share things with your parents, per the service agreement. They sometimes need to know what is going on to help you.
♦ I have faced over 190 bullies, so I know how to help you to be 'you' in the tough times. Being free of concerns helps your learning and life be more enjoyable.
♦ I've done a lot of unique things, chased goals when most around me said it was impossible. I'll support you and offer what I can do to help you fulfill your goals.
♦ I've failed at lots of things and grown heaps from it. Most of these things I'd repeat as failing was worth it for what was learned.
♦ My only wish would be I could have had this type of tutoring when I was in High School. So I'll give you what I know with 30 years of hindsight for you to do with as you wish.
I did all this the hard way. This is a great chance for you, so consider giving it the best you can as it will set your life in a direction that has less pain, more joy and the success that matters to you.

Why it works
and helps you get what you really want
Tutoring will guide you to easeful study, relaxed low stress learning, how to use your brain to get what you want with the motivation to carry it out.
Firstly you will learn these Student Success techniques for better memory, note taking, relaxation (the Learning State), exam strategy and motivation to study. But as part of that, you also learn these other success skills that make life work how YOU WANT IT. This is the easy way. It's brain-friendly and time efficient.
These techniques work. I have used them myself while at university, helping me to attain photographic memory. I have consistently received good feedback from students, parents and teachers about performance and motivation improvements.
Everyone is different and the key is to find out what works best for you. As we try the different ways you will learn what suits you and how you tick inside. This leaves you empowered to chase your goals, desires and dreams. When unwanted things happen you'll be able to respond and make the most of it.
Learn how to be a whole brain learner while in an education system that favours half-brained learning (through the use of left brain dominated processes). Learn your strengths and how to strengthen your learning weaknesses.
What's better than passing? Improving and building a skill set and attitude that life is a learning experience. Thus knowing how to master challenges and be positively motivated is an outcome of Student Success tutoring.
This coaching guides you to operate at the structural level of your habits and thinking. Alter the way you think, feel and react then your life becomes much more enjoyable. You can develop these skills and use them for the rest of your life.
