Duncan has always keenly assisted others smoothly navigate their studies to the world of work and beyond. He aids learning step-by-step facilitating the identification and exploration of important themes to build a foundation of confidence.
Upon graduating High School in Central Queensland Duncan moved to Brisbane and commenced a Bachelor of Laws. Having been immersed in the academic and extracurricular activities regional life nurtures, Duncan had to adapt to meet the rigors of University. Acclimating to the turbulence of University and adulthood simultaneously, Duncan soon began mentoring High School and University students in English, History, Legal Studies and the Priestly 11 Law Subjects. He also aided those accessing equity services that may not have had the opportunity, support or resources to realise their potential. Here his timely, accurate and meaningfully structured lecture/ tutorial notes were in great demand. This broad exposure enabled Duncan to discern many practicalities of learning particularly with regards the effective distillation and use of core principles.
Duncan successfully navigated the graduate market and accepted an appointment as an Associate to the Supreme Court of Queensland. Becoming engaged in the full workings of the higher courts at both trial and appellate levels provided a new practical framework for learning. Cultivating and maintaining relationships with peers as well as seniors in this context led to meaningful mentorship. This was pivotal to Duncan’s personal and professional development. It illustrated how core needs, motivations and feelings are key to understanding as well as being understood in any dynamic.
These experiences have given Duncan a unique approach to mentoring. He is proactive and energetic about learning. Ever mindful of stakeholder expectations, Duncan is eager to work with parents to manage mentee stressors. He is aware that learning is about more than just assessment. Upon taking on a mentee Duncan consults with them to develop a practical timetable for the completion of work that can be relied on. He also seeks to facilitate a friendly learning dynamic that fosters enthusiasm, confidence and core skills .
In addition to High School and Bachelor of Laws studies Duncan also assists with: proof reading; assignment planning; exam preparation; speech writing/ presentation; and job applications (including aiding the drafting of: selection criteria, resumes, curriculum vitaes and cover letters).

Standard rates start at $50.00 per hour (plus GST). Duncan understands some pieces of assessment are more cumbersome than others. We do not always get to play to our strengths and must innovate to minimize a weakness. In these circumstances a fixed price might provide a more suitable means to an end. This allows a mentee peace of mind and the opportunity to focus on their learning. N.B. Unless otherwise agreed, fees are to be paid in advance or on the day services are provided.
