Janine is an exceptional tutor who is a fantastic support to our son in year 12. She is enthusiastic, understanding, and is so very encouraging of our son’s effort and progress. She had a deep appreciation that organisation, prioritisation, and time management are skills that don’t come naturally to all kids. We have really appreciated her detailed summaries of their sessions so that we know what they have discussed, and the skills they are working on. We highly recommend Janine! (Parent of Year 12 student, Brisbane, 2021)

Janine is warm, kind, and most of all passionate about her work and her students. She helped me reach my full potential in grade 12, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for support in their studies (former Year 12, online student, 2021)

Janine’s ability to provide a comprehensive overview of learning strategies as well as subject specific help for biology is unique in school education. I found her approach and willingness to help exceeded that provided by my child’s school and gave us insight to my child’s learning at a time where we were at a loss as to know exactly where my child needed assistance (Parent of Year 12 student, Brisbane, 2020)

Janine’s style is perfectly targeted to my child. He has learned so much and is so much more confident from the lessons he receives. It’s one of the favourite parts of his week and I’ve seen him grow so much through the learning and growth mindset Janine is teaching him. Thank you so much! (Parent, Brisbane, 2020)

We really appreciate the personal approach with your sessions, where you execute the perfect balance of enjoyment and challenge that keeps our son engaged and looking forward to your session every week. We feel that your contribution was one of the most valuable investments we have made in our son’s development (Parent, Brisbane, 2020)

Janine is very friendly and approachable. She articulates concepts very clearly and often has a memorable example or fun fact to help it stick in your mind. Her passion for science is also plain to see, and it is easy to get caught up in it (Year 12 student, 2019)

Janine was the first person to read the full draft of my PhD thesis. Her feedback was detailed and so well-considered. She took the time not only to provide constructive suggestions, but also to highlight areas of strength in the thesis and to provide positive feedback throughout, which made me feel so much more confident about my work. Implementing her suggestions improved the thesis in multiple respects and after this I felt confident and excited to pass the draft on to my advisors (PhD student, University of Queensland, 2019)

At the beginning of my PhD Janine gave me some really great advice that helped get me through the really hard times. It really helped me to keep things in perspective (PhD student, University of Queensland, 2019)

I would recommend the workshop to anyone starting out at uni. So excited for this education (First year student, University of Southern Queensland, 2017)

The workshop was helpful and it made me feel inspired to embrace the challenges (First year student, University of Southern Queensland, 2017)

I went along to Janine’s talk and found it extremely inspiring and motivating! (Second year student, Murdoch University, 2012)

Janine does a fantastic job of connecting with students and helping them to connect with each other, which is a pleasure for all of us who are involved in teaching (Academic, School of Veterinary and Life Sciences, Murdoch University, 2012)

Once again I would like to thank you, you have been very kind and helpful in my transition from high school to uni. I appreciate this kindness tremendously! (First year student, Murdoch University, 2012)

You ALWAYS provide me with fantastic advice that I can take away and use throughout my entire degree. Thanks a lot, I really appreciate all you have done for me (First year student, Murdoch University, 2012)

Thank you very much for your advice and support, you really were helpful and made things feel a lot more manageable (Second year student, Murdoch University, 2012)

Thank you Janine, I really appreciate your guidance. I feel much more confident and even excited to begin the semester (First year university student, Murdoch University, 2011)

I was very unsure about things before we spoke and now I have some true direction. You have inspired me to believe I can get a degree (Year 12 student, Perth, 2011)

Thanks so much for your presentation. The students gained some very valuable insights into what university life brings (Academic, School of Veterinary and Life Sciences, Murdoch University, 2011)

Thank you very much for everything. I wouldn’t have made it through the year without your support (First year student, Murdoch University, 2011)
