I have fifteen year’s experience in preparing students for exams. I have taught school children, university students, business people and adults from all walks of life.

I have refined methods for leading students to reach their true potential and experience the success they deserve.

Success in exams takes a solid teaching programme, proper study techniques and a razor-sharp focus on the essentials. One of the biggest mistakes that students make is getting stuck memorising irrelevent facts. When this happens they can get burnt out and overwhelmed. I consider this to be a main cause of failure in exams, especially at advanced levels.
One of the most important things I’ve learnt as a teacher is to get ‘inside’ the exam, and streamline a study programme according to each student’s needs. For busy professionals and third level students this can be the difference between sinking and swimming.
