I have a reputation as one of the best in the Senior school (Year 10-12) tutoring business, with the majority of our students joining us from referrals from other parents or teachers. So many parents tell me…”we wish we had found you sooner”. My one-one tutoring program is one of Victoria's most comprehensive and long standing specialist Senior school programs (15 years), meaning I am a reliable and consistent support in your child’s senior school education. My program is designed to nurture students both academically and emotionally through their senior school studies.

I take pride in my empowering approach to education. I provide a partnership with my senior students by reassuring them that I have their back, supporting them to thrive in their senior years of their secondary education. My work with students is not like the typical tutoring process, as I check in with students between sessions to see how they are going with their work and provide corrections and feedback on practice writing between sessions. I am also available for students to have a chat with if they are feeling worried about an upcoming assessment.

My tutoring allows students to thrive in their senior years, utilising the dominant side of their brain and their learning strengths. Majoring in Psychology during my teaching degree, I understand the significance of how students learn best. This is one of the contributing factors in my students improving in their VCE (for many as much as 2 grades higher eg: C+ to an A+), regardless of the level they join me at.

This approach I teach to essay writing has been reported by many students and parents to have a positive ripple effect on student's essay writing success in other Senior school subjects. Parents share with me that the program I have developed to teach essay writing and the mindset support strategies I provide students, are then used by their child throughout their university studies, which is most rewarding to hear the difference I am able to make to my students, not just during their VCE, but also into their future.

I have many years of experience teaching in independent and government schools. I am friendly, patient, have a good sense of humour and strong rapport building skills with my students. My educating process involves a highly developed and individually tailored program, ensuring student and parent satisfaction with the learning process and results achieved. Lesson plans are developed specifically for the individual student and are tailored to the area the student requires teaching focus, in order to achieve the very best results for their V.C.E SACs and Exams.

VCE English & VCE Literature

I have a strong knowledge of VCE texts and curriculum to empower students to excel with confidence. I help clear up the confusion students may be facing in relation to the expectations of their essay writing in V.C.E English and VCE Literature, including specifics on how to structure essays and the features students need to include in their essay to score their best results. I have a history of achieving excellent results promptly with students. My previous students have demonstrated dramatic changes in both their level of self confidence and academic results.

Senior Education Studios Master Mind Program

As the founder and director of Senior Education Studios, a Psychology teacher and having majored in Psychology during my degree, I am particularly passionate about nurturing students through the pressures they face in their senior years of secondary schooling. Our VCE Master Mind workshops are designed to provide VCE specific stress management strategies, motivation, fatigue management, positive internal dialogue strategies, understanding the brain when studying and how to study most effectively in order to empower students to 'thrive', rather than 'survive' their senior years of their secondary education. As a result, we see remarkable results in our students as they face their SACs and exams with a greater confidence, calm and understanding of how to optimise their studies and overall schooling experience.

'VCE Master Mind' program includes:

-Stress Management Strategies
-Positive Internal Dialogue
-Relaxation Techniques
-Creating a balanced VCE year (including sleep/wake patterns)
-Study skills
-Self Motivation

VCE Psychology
We provide one-one VCE Psychology sessions to prepare students for their SACs and exams. We understand how content heavy the VCE Psychology curriculum can be, so our Psychology program is designed to support students with how to best understand this content, retain it and how to utilise this knowledge to score the best results with the most effective responses in SACs and exams.

VCE Dance
Our VCE Dance tutoring program includes in person or online one-one sessions to support students with choreographing and refining their solo performances, whilst ensuring their solo most effectively addresses the key assessment criteria. Students are taught by an experienced VCE Dance teacher and choreographer with VCAA Assessor experience. We support our students with choreography strategies that are most effective in aiding students to develop their choreography during their one-one session or workshops with us. We also provide theory sessions, when required, to support students with achieving the best results for the theory component of the VCE Dance.

Our Team
My team consists of myself and two other educators who are hand selected as the best of the best in what we do. We are reliable, relatable and fastidious when developing your child's program to target exactly what is needed. We pride ourselves on being the opposite of large mass produced tutoring and instead focus on being a small team who work collaboratively (in person together) to develop and deliver the highest quality program for each of our individual students needs.

Senior Education Workshops throughout the year also include:

-VCE Exam readiness workshops

-VCE Study Skills Workshops

-November/December Head-start program for students entering Years 10, 11 & 12 in 2025

-G.A.T Examination writing workshops

-VCE Master Mind Workshops
