' I have been extremely happy to see my daughter Holly succeed in her year 12 thanks to you. I am very grateful!' (D. Barbas parent of high school graduate 2019)
Your guidance has helped me to succeed not only inside the classroom but outside ,even when I thought I couldn't get to where I wanted to be! If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have the degree of my dreams. You made the effort to connect with me on a personal level to grow my confidence and be that friend I can get guidance from anytime.
I highly recommend going into year 12 with Karen.' (Holly Barbas High School graduate 2019)
Year 12 is renowned for being one of the most stressful times in a student's life. This 'stress' can also have on impact parents, who often experience an enormous pressure to do what they can to get their son or daughter through the 'challenges' of thier final year at high school..and that can be tough!!
In my role as a Student Coach (and as a parent to two teenage boys), I see first-hand just how the pressure of exams, extensive study and the requirement to make important decisions about their future, can take it's toil on a student's morale, motivation and mental and emotional well-being.
It is for this reason, I have designed a unique program which help students successfully navigate the potential 'challenges' of year 12 and be able to graduate high school feeling proud of what they've achieved and be genuinely excited about their future.
'The Success in Year 12' Mentoring and Coaching Program is designed to help students stay focused and 'on-track', take charge of their motivation levels and be confident in their own abilities in order to have the best chance of 'success' in their final year of school.
"I used Karen's skills and techniques for my WACE exams to find focus and a clear mind which improved my memory recall and ability to critically think and problem solve under pressure. As a result, my marks improved to help me achieve full marks in my WACE practical exam for Drama and recieve the Subject Exhibition. I can't thank Karen enough for helping me achieve these goals that I hadn't previously believed were a possibility." MATT BRYAN ALL SAINTS COLLEGE
