Learning Skills for Academic, Professional and Personal Success

Learning can be fun! Did you know your brain CRAVES and does it anyway, on autopilot, 24/7? How is it, then, that for so many people learning seems like a tedious chore or a very difficult thing to do? Why do we often feel "stupid" or "untalented"?

That's simply because the way we are commonly taught and expected to study at school, university or on vocational training is NOT in alignment with the natural functionality and needs of the human brain, our mind in a broader sense, or more holistically, our entire personality.

So what can we do about that? How can we process and retain information, gain knowledge and at the same time, develop our personality, learn vital life skills, become successful, healthy and happy?

Here's the good news: Genius is common! You "simply" need to rekindle your innate curiosity, playfulness, creativity, problem solving abilities and inner wisdom. You've got this! All you need is the right information and someone who believes in you, guides and supports your progress.

That's what I can do for you.
I will
* teach you the theory behind all learning (mainly neurosciences and psychology) if and when desired, so you can understand how the human mind really works, what the conditions for learning are and how you can create them,
* give you a wide range of easy, mix-and-match tools that will support any learning, no matter the subject or level,
* hold you accountable, track your progress & cheer you on,
* help you apply the information (practise transfer), based on your individual circumstances (the WHY, WHAT and HOW of your learning),
* all this in a fun, engaging and simple way that will not only get you maximum results with minimum effort, but will also be something you're going to enjoy and look forward to!

My unique approach will help you with all of the following:
* problem solving
* critical/lateral thinking
* creativity
* memory
* focus & motivation
* logic & reasoning
* presentation skills
* communication and other social skills
* mental health and wellbeing

It can also be used as a complementary program for people in difficult circumstances (including survivors), life transitions, after trauma or during severe/chronic illness, for career advancement (like landing your dream job or creating your own business), for dementia prevention or simply to keep mentally fit and happy at any age.

My courses are 100% client centred, which means the curriculum can and will be adapted to the needs, preferences and unique situation of the individual or group I'm teaching. All content is modular, so you can literally "pick your own adventure" and work exactly at the pace and in the order that suits you best. I am committed to your success and provide outstanding, highly personalized support even between lessons. I'm also very flexible with times and settings, however I expect and require students to follow through once a commitment has been made.

Extra information

Bespoke arrangements (content, number and duration of lessons, times and setting etc.) available. I am also open to teaching groups (at a discount) and to giving presentations or workshops (for all types of organisations, businesses, charities, schools, etc.).

About Me

I would describe myself, amongst other attributes, as
* fun and easy-going, but seriously nerdy ;)
* widely interested and always keen to learn new things
* absolutely book-addicted
* amateur violinist (self-taught) and greatest fan of Beethoven
* nature lover & cat person

I could be classified as a "survivor" (have experienced all kinds of trauma), but don't self-identify as such anymore because I refuse to be defined (and held back) by what happened in the past. However, my story is at the core of my desire and passion to educate and help others. Learning has saved my life and can also help you to find purpose, fulfilment, success and happiness no matter your circumstances!

I have a bias towards "weirdos" or non-conformists, independent thinkers and free spirits, so these would be my preferred students. However, I have a talent for seeing the good, the untapped potential, and the genius in (mostly) everyone and consider myself a sort of "midwife" for the mind & soul.

Education

* studied Education (major), Psychology & Philosophy (minor) at TU Dresden, Germany and FernUni Hagen, Germany
* certified Women's Project Manager
* various trainings in Life Coaching, NLP, Hypnotherapy, and Business
* extensively self-taught (I read at least one non-fiction book per week, usually more)

Experience / Qualifications

* Teacher (English, German, Social Sciences)
* Private Tutoring
* Coaching, Mentoring and Counselling
* Volunteer and Facilitator for Women's Self Help Centre, Dresden
* Community Manager (online)
* Leadership (Peer Groups, Balint Groups)

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.

Personal Development Coaching to becoming the best version of yourself.
Are you drifting through life without a clear objective? Are you fed up with your lot in life, Job, marriage? I'm a Personal Development Freak. When I left school I was a complete introvert with absolutely no social skills. I was small, weak, slow, shy, introverted, and I realised quite quickly that I needed to work twice as hard as everybody else to be as good as everybody else. so I worked bloody hard and put myself in the most uncomfortable situations to get the maximum benefit. I'm now a extrovert who has worked in many countries as an IT Consultant earning a very good living. I'm also a standup comedian and world traveler ( been around the world twice, I love travelling and meeting new people ) I can make friends with strangers very quickly. I'm always learning and developing where ever I go. I'm also an author published 1 book on amazon. I've done the Millionaire Mind Intensive and the Tony Robbins UPW/DWD. Yoga, Vipassana meditation, Pranayama, Wim Hof breathing, Cold therapy. intermittent fasting, keto, Journey Intensive, Holotropic breathwork.
