School and study problems are the #2 concern for young people.
About ⅓ of young people aged 15-19 are “very” or “extremely” concerned about school or study problems. This rises to ⅔ if they are under the treatment of mental health professionals.
Let’s face it, the HSC is hard work. It’s a full time job and we can all benefit from mentoring in our jobs.
Mentoring is very different from tutoring and coaching. Tutoring or coaching can be useful if you are struggling with knowledge acquisition. Tutors and coaches focus on drilling, so that you can answer a knowledge based question. They teach you to pass the test. Great if you are having specific trouble in a specific class.
But most students are struggling across most or all of their subjects. For some reason, the way that they have learned in the past and their current set of study skills, are no longer working for them. They need to develop new approaches to the higher demands of the HSC and better prepare them for University, TAFE, vocational training and eventually the work force.
Mentors provide guidance that help you understand, then develop tools. They work collaboratively with you to help you be the best you can be. They are there to develop talent, the talent they see in you. Mentors can help you reach your dreams.

I only work with students face-to-face either across the table or through the wonders of technology, which I provide as part of the service. I am currently interviewing year 7, 8, 9 and 10 students for a very limited number of positions in my program. Unfortunately I am no longer accepting any new year 11 and 12 students.
