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 completing my Masters in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for almost 10 years 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.

BIOHACKING: HOW TO SUPERCHARGE YOURSELF & LOSE WEIGHT EASILY

After you complete this workshop you will be able to: Increase your brain power and mental clarity. Heal faster and gain more energy. Super charge your mindset for success.

Slows down the aging process so you look and feel younger and healthier. You will learn how and why your body/mind works the way it does and why its so hard to be healthy, and how to bend this to your advantage. Testimonials: Entering the workshop, I felt my health and productivity were ok and I wanted more out of life. and there I had my mind blown about the possibilities of biohacking. Realising that my body is addicted to sugars 'even though I'm not over weight'. I followed his advice on 10 day detox to unwire the addiction to sugar and I could only do that thanks to the psychologically supporting mindset he gave me. I feel I'm on a whole new level of focus health and productivity and seeing the success, I'm excited to implement more of his advice! - Richard S. I've known for a while that I needed help/support/coaching but not to whom to turn to/where to turn to. Joe provided me with that comprehensive guidance, equipped me with enough information, that I can now make the necessary fundamental changes. Four to 5 days after the meeting/consultation, I started to feel better. - Agneta L. Signup now and begin your transformation to increase health, well-being and performance. About Joe: I've been a Biohacker for over 5 years and have taken my clients' health/performance from a very low place to optimum levels in both body and mind. I used to work in the city where I over-worked and over-ate with an extremely bad diet. Eventually my body broke down and I was transferred from hospital to hospital and the doctors couldn't help me. For over 6 months I was disabled and needed 24/7 care and could only sleep for 30mins at a time. Realising that if I wanted to save my life, then I had to master my own health. From that point on I began an epic transformational journey to master my own body and mind. I tried everything from conventional to alternative medicine and therapies, anything that had even the slightest chance of success. I went to over 30 alternative doctors and took hundreds of different supplements and remedies, studied everything I could about the human body/mind and how to optimise it for health and performance. This goes far beyond medicine and herbs: As Tony Robbins says to be a success at anything 80% is psychology and 20% is mechanics. What that means is that 80% is in your head and 20% is the actual actions to make it happen. Once you get the psychology sorted out then the actions become much much easier to do. Trying to achieve something without getting the psychology aligned is like trying to swim against the tide. If you work on the psychology and get that aligned to your goals and ambitions then it's like swimming with the current. In both cases you still have to swim and put the effort in, just in the 2nd option it's much easier, quicker and with less effort. When I’m teaching one of the most common responses I get is that being healthy is hardwork. My response is that being unhealthy is hard, having health problems like brain fog, high blood pressure, Alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes, those things are hard as hell, literally, being healthy in comparison is a walk in the park. Your body and mind is not a car, if you mistreat a car and it breaks down you can get rid of it and just buy a new one, and another and another, but if you mistreat your body/mind and it breaks down you can’t get a new one! My goal is to help you towards becoming the very best version of yourself. If you haven't already signed up then please do it now. I look forward to meeting you at the workshop and assist you in transforming your life. Anytime sessions are where we agree on a mutual time and place.
