I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, with a specialisation in counselling. In the past, I have worked in primary and high schools offering individual & group counselling, life skills courses, and psychometric testing. I am currently working in Youth Empowerment Services for local government. I have also always had a passion for wildlife & conservation and have done extensive research on all of my class topics. All of my classes are taught with patience and compassion, and I aim to create a safe, comfortable place to facilitate your child's learning.
