What if there was a way for you to study smarter, not harder, so you could achieve your goals with reduced stress & work?

  • Have you ever imagined feeling more confident about writing excellent exams, essays and assignments and submitting them in record time?
  • Do you constantly crave a more enjoyable, less stressful, learning journey?
  • Can you visualise achieving better grades despite studying less and enjoying life more
These dreams can be your reality!

Do you need to achieve something special during your study journey?

My signature coaching sessions are tailored to your specific needs and goals. I facilitate you taking the necessary steps to go from where you are now, to where you want/need to be, simpler and faster than if you attempted this journey on your own.

Coaching sessions are designed to enable you to make changes and achieve your goals. If you don’t know what your goals are, coaching can assist you in discovering and achieving them.

Every session is confidential, engaging, empathetic, explorative, and non-judgemental. So, you can feel confident and comfortable as you’re being coached.

Throughout your session, you may be asked questions to explore areas relating to your goals, options, circumstances, influences etc. Alternatively, you may be given appropriate silence, so you can reflect.

The coaching process is as easy as: 
  1. Booking a 20-minute consultation call to get to know one another and establish if we’ll work well together.
  2. Deciding on preferred coaching package and appointment for our first session.
  3. The signing of a contract based on previous discussions.
  4. The first session is to elaborate on desired outcomes and setting a time frame to achieve your goals.
  5. Further sessions to consistently work towards achieving goals and completing the 1:1 coaching sessions.
As a student, you may want to experience the joy of learning and producing impressive grades that will boost your confidence and productivity.
As a parent, you may want your child(ren) to be happy, fulfilled and enjoy a rewarding and successful learning experience that makes you proud.

Although achieving academic success is not the only route to happiness, success, and fulfilment in life, it has its benefits.

Typically, doing well academically gives you more career options and opportunities. In other words, you’re better able to pick, choose and refuse what you want to do when you grow up, or after you graduate.

If you or your child(ren) want to:
  • Increase chances of doing well academically,
  • Elevate career options and opportunities,
  • Decrease study stresses,
  • Ditch the confusion, anxiety and worry over getting better grades,
  • Study smarter, not longer, and exercise great self-care habits
  • Get more out of the learning experience…

Then I’m here to help achieve your goals.

From over a decade of experience studying in the USA and the UK, I know that successful learning can be challenging.
As a homeschooling parent of 3 children, I can also relate to the challenges, the frustration, the juggle, and the struggle of wanting to educate your child(ren), despite the daily demands of life.
I’m no stranger to suffering study stresses like:
  • Studying for hours, and sometimes days, yet unsure if I’ve learned anything.
  • Suffering from exam anxiety and self-doubt.
  • Mentally beating myself up because I know I need to study, but feel unmotivated and unproductive.
  • Procrastinating then panicking because I’ve wasted so much precious time.
I know what it’s like to:
  • Feel hopeless as you try your best, but watch helplessly as your child(ren)’s motivation disappears, and procrastination rear’s its ugly head.
  • Have an endless to-do-list, yet feel overwhelmed with the need to divide your attention between housework and school/homework.
  • Juggle several children wanting your full attention at the same time and you feel like you’re suffocating and just want to SCREAM!!!
  • Feel defeated and out of your depth as you try to teach your child(ren), but all they want to do is play/argue/throw a tantrum/watch a screen.

If you can relate to any of the above, whether as a struggling student or a busy homeschooler, I am ready, willing, and able to help you survive your struggles.

What Satisfied Clients Say…

“If it wasn’t for Menesa’s coaching, I would be a mighty mess. Before meeting Menesa, I was disorganised, and my study methods were all over the place. Now, I’m able to focus and stay on top of my study schedule. I’ve already seen positive results in my grades which I hope to continue improving thanks to Menesa’s coaching.”
Juanita S – Law Student, Distance Learner
“Menesa made an instant connection with my homeschooled son. She relates to him well and puts him at ease, so he is willing to listen to her. So far, her coaching has made him a better student and inspired me to persevere.”
Sarah F – Homeschooling Mom
“Menesa’s ability to improve your mindset is astounding. She taught me how to be better at time management, so I can get more done in a shorter space of time. I am also able to take better notes which improves my study sessions. Her coaching has given me the confidence to succeed.”

Christina F – Psychology Student

Being coached by a study skills specialist like myself gives you the skills, tools, and resources to succeed by:

  • Learning to avoid common mistakes made by even experienced learners.

  • Discovering the best study methods for you and your unique circumstances.
  • Giving you peace of mind because you have a secret weapon in your corner who helps you become more competent and confident about your learning.

  • Providing you with unlimited access to a professional, approachable ally, with:

(a) a proven track record of academic success, and

(b) over a decade’s worth of information, inspiration, and experience of being a student and a homeschooler.

 Are you wondering if my 1:1 coaching is the right investment/fit for you or your child(ren)?

I would recommend my 1:1 coaching services for you if: 
 
    • You are a homeschooler who wants some actionable advice that can be easily implemented to help your child(ren) achieve outstanding results and develop a love for learning.
    • You are an adult learner/student who studies face to face or remotely and could benefit from guidance on how to be more motivated and productive.
    • You want to advance your current career or future life prospects by studying for professional qualifications.
    • You need help with proofreading/editing papers or polishing your advanced academic assignments, like thesis, dissertations, and research projects.
    • You accept that there’s no such thing as an overnight success. Success comes through consistent effort and by applying the information you receive. Information without application is pointless!
I don’t think we would benefit from working together if: 
 
    • You believe this is an effortless way to ace your exams without you exerting any energy towards your success. Although I can certainly help you achieve your goals, you’ll need to want to achieve them and be willing to put in the requisite work.
    • You feel you already know it all, but want a quick and easy way to get answers. If you feel you already know it all, you won’t be receptive to the effective tips, tools and techniques a coach offers. Therefore, investing in a coach is a waste of your money and a waste of everyone’s time, and energy.
    • You are unable to make a financial and/ time commitment to the coaching process. If you don’t have the time to do the work, or the money to invest in yourself currently, then I suggest you access my free resources until your circumstances change.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Which coaching package best fits me?

As every individual circumstance is unique and requires specific needs, I offer a variety of packages from which you can choose. I recommend that the best way to determine which package is right for you is to book a 20-minute consultation call so that we can discuss your goals and determine the best way forward. However, if you prefer to get started without the consultation call, the most popular option is my signature Advanced Academic Package.

I’m a homeschooling parent. How can know if my child(ren) will work well with you?

I have three children of my own, so I’m well experienced with homeschooling and working with children of various ages. On the consultation call, we will establish whether a connection is made between your child(ren) and I. This gives you peace of mind and dispels any concerns you may have regarding us working well together.

What qualifications/experience do you have?
  • I am a qualified Barrister.
  • I also hold a Distinction for a Master of Laws degree in Corporate & Business Law.
  • Recently, I achieved a Commendation for Master of Laws degree in Legal Practice, specialising in Intellectual Property from the University of Law.
  • Prior to the above, I gained a Bachelor of Law degree from the University of London.
  • I also graduated from a New York College/University, Magna Cum Laude, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, Theatre Arts & Graphic Communications.
  • While studying in New York, I tutored degree students for 4 years.
  • After studying in New York, I taught high school for over two years.
  • I have been a homeschooler for over 10 years.

How are the coaching sessions delivered?

I work with clients globally via Zoom/Google Meet video calls.

What’s your cancellation policy?

To avoid wasting my time and depriving other interested clients of a session, I discourage last-minute cancellations and reschedule requests. Within reason, you can reschedule consultation calls 2 times. However, coaching sessions may be rescheduled more often for reasonable/rational reasons, if a minimum of 48 hours’ notice is given each time. Although I will exercise discretion in each case, I reserve the right to charge up to half of your session rate for less than 48-hour notice cancellations, or late-notice reschedule requests.

How is your coaching different from tutoring?

Having been a tutor for several years, I can confirm that a tutor’s job is similar to what a teacher/professor does.  They give you information and reinforce it through repetition.  I know that a capable tutor may be an excellent source of support in assisting you with subject/course material. However, constant tutoring can become costly. If you can afford to pay for a tutor indefinitely, that’s excellent! If you’re less financially blessed, then you may benefit from other alternatives, like coaching. My coaching sessions will give you study and mindset tips and techniques you can implement immediately. This helps you get results in record time. You’ll learn how to work independently to become a more productive and organised student who achieves your goals in less time than expected. Ideally, study coaching is a wonderful complement to traditional tutoring. So, if you can afford tutoring and coaching simultaneously, you may find that one of my three packages could boost your studies and transform your ability to get great results on your own.  This will inevitably save you money on paying for tutoring indefinitely.

Do you tutor also?

Although I am an experienced tutor, I currently focus on my coaching and proofreading services. Nevertheless, I may consider individual circumstances. Contact me via email to discuss this further.

I’m an experienced student/homeschooler. I have may study/homeschooling methods that have worked for years. If it works, why do I need to change things?

Life is constantly evolving. Especially with the global pandemic, things are changing now more than they ever have before. If you don’t keep up, you’re likely to get left behind. The biggest, best, and brightest in any field are consistently seeking new and better ways to enhance their abilities and broaden their knowledge. That’s their secret to success. As a student, I found that over the years, I constantly had to alter my study strategies to remain current and keep up with changes. As a homeschooler, I frequently adjusted my approach to accommodate my ever-evolving children. From experience, I know that despite how experienced you are, in life, you can always learn something new. So, why not optimise your study strategy and increase your chances of getting better grades, through coaching? I’m not suggesting that you abandon all your study methods. You could complement your methods with some modifications that will make them more effective. This results in you/your child(ren) getting greater results.

Who should be / can be on the consultation call?

I encourage the person who is going to be coached to be on the consultation call. If you are a homeschooler and you feel your child(ren) is/can’t handle the call on their own, then feel free to join in. Sometimes, parents prefer to discuss sensitive/delicate concerns with me in the absence of their child. This may require scheduling two separate calls, one with the child(ren) and one without them. Please let me know if this is your preference when scheduling the initial consultation call.

What guarantees can I get?

If after our first session, we find that we don’t work well together, you’ll receive a full refund.

 

Do you have a referral system for friends?

I encourage you to refer friends. If your referral becomes a client, you’ll receive 50% off your next coaching session. If you refer two friends who become paying clients, you get your next session free. Be sure to remind your friend to mention you when they become a client, so I can give you your discount. Unfortunately, you’re not able to transfer your discounts/free sessions to other parents/students or trade them in for other services/products.

Do you ever offer any discounts?

My prices already give great value for money. However, from time to time, I do offer special discounts for special occasions. I also offer discounts for referrals that become paying clients. If you feel unable to invest at this time, I suggest that you refer to the considerable amount of free material I have created on my website and blog.

 

With whom do I work?

I am based in the UK, but also have experience teaching, coaching, and working in the US with:

  • Current law students to enhance their study strategies,
  • Legal professionals who want to advance their career,
  • Homeschooling parents who want to help boost their child(ren) grades/confidence, and
  • Homeschooled children of all ages.

What if after starting a package, I wanted to change to another one?

If after beginning a package, you wanted more or less help than you anticipated when you began, you may switch to another package and I’ll adjust your payment accordingly.

100% satisfaction, no obligation

Consultation calls are designed for us to get to know each other a bit better. This conversation establishes your needs and expectations so I can determine how I can help you, or if we need not proceed.

After the 20-minute call, if either of us feels we’re not a good fit for each other, then we can terminate ties before a financial commitment is made.

I work with students/learners globally via Zoom video call.
