Learning With Confidence would like to invite you to a complimentary talk by Dr Leanne Wall, a highly experienced doctor, counsellor and coach, who will focus on empowering parents with the knowledge, skills and resources to be great role models for managing their child’s stress. She can advise parents how to create a psychologically safe home environment where teenagers feel comfortable to ask for support if they are struggling.
There are two opportunities to attend October 7 and October 14 from 6.30pm to 8pm the the LWC Tutoring rooms, 96 Longueville Road, Lane Cove.

The Homework Collective is an initiative to get homework out of the nag and drag and into a positive and productive space!

We use homework as a tool to teach:
  • how to prioritise tasks
  • learn to problem solve so they learn how to tackle tasks (not give up!)
  • demonstrate how to understand questions and break them down (math included!)
  • work on brainstorming, mind maps, scaffolds and chunking tasks
  • teach deadlines, time management and planning alongside school tasks
  • model diary use, reminders and structure for homework
  • make it fun and easy to work alongside us and other kids

We have designed this with your child in mind. To bring back skills that help homework BUT more than that our philosophy is to teach them to have a growth mindset so that they may gain  life skills at the same time that will mean more than homework.

This is a great opportunity to let you be the parent and let us be that coach for homework.

Aside from the physical benefits, teenagers learn skills for coping with the unique issues they’re faced with every day: exams & expectations, stressful schedules & situations, friendships and relationships, and the enormous pressure to fit in.

We provide a safe, fun space where they don’t need to overachieve – and offer tools to deal with pressure, stress and anxiety AND develop focus and confidence. They’ll truly relax with a combination of movement, breathing and gentle meditation techniques.

Cost: $90
