As a Coachbit Coach, my qualities include empathy, patience, and an out-of-the-box mindset. With a strong academic background in Psychology and Gender Studies, and an ongoing pursuit of an Honors degree in Psychology, I am well-prepared to understand the diverse needs of students. My extensive experience as an Academic Tutor, Student Mentor, and Learning Facilitator, particularly with neurodiverse students and those with learning difficulties, allows me to provide tailored support. I am deeply committed to holistic student development, emphasizing growth and well-being alongside academics. I firmly believe in every student's potential, and my passion for education and mental health drives my coaching philosophy. I am dedicated to helping students overcome challenges, ensuring they reach their true potential through personalized support and care. What I find most fulfilling about coaching is building relationships with my students and the opportunity to positively impact their lives so they can reach their true potential. Holistic development is essential; we are all individuals with unique strengths and needs. My life mottos are: 'You can't pour from an empty cup' and 'Be where your feet are,' reflect my commitment to self-care and being present in every moment. As your student’s coach I would be happy to lead them on a journey of growth and achievement.

I’m a firm believer in building momentum through small victories. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to be consistent. This has proved to me that big success can be fueled by small wins.
