Class Experience

Students will learn critical thinking and problem-solving skills, along with the IRAC method itself which is a staple in law school and practice. This method can also be applied to almost any subject of assignment or essay where an argument is required to be presented.
I am a lawyer in Australia, and I have homeschooled my own children for the past 8 years and will continue to do so for at least another 17 years (my youngest child is 1y as of 2022). 

I have degrees, post-graduate, and professional qualifications in the following:

- Law - Bachelor of Laws, Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice, Admission as a Lawyer;

- TESOL - I have completed 8 out of 8 units towards the 150-hour qualification. When I receive my official professional certificate from Arizona State University I will update this here;

- Criminology;
- I.T. Security;
- Applied Linguistics;
- Investigative Services;
- Security, Terrorism and Counterterrorism.

I have also completed the following short courses which are relevant to the classes I teach here:

- How Forensic Science should speak to the Court;
- Introduction to Key Constitutional Concepts and Supreme Court Cases (USA);
- An Introduction to American Law (USA);
- English Common Law: Structure and Principles (UK);
- Economic Growth and Distributive Justice;

- Technology and Ethics;
- ADHD: Everyday Strategies for Elementary Students;
- The Clinical Psychology of Children and Young People;
- Everyday Parenting: The ABCs of Child Rearing;
- A Brief History of Humankind.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
