"Why isn't my studying working anymore?!"
Hi, I'm Yvonne, and I said that a LOT!
My goal is to help students with their study habits and mindset to improve the effectiveness of their studies and exam performance
I struggled through my qualification journey, and I only discovered WHY this was much later. I want to help you earlier
Hello future finance professional,
You’re a determined and passionate student. You are dedicated and committed to your studies and your career goals. You’ve sacrificed a lot for your goals, and believe in investing in your future.
You study hard, balancing your time between work, life and your studies. As you progress through your studies, you’re increasingly finding that the study habits you’ve always used successfully don’t seem to be as effective anymore. You’re putting in more hours, and getting less out of them.
This is especially challenging for you if you’ve done well academically in the past. What has changed?! What does this mean?
You’ve tried to work harder, to follow the advice of those around you, and somehow you still struggle with time management, procrastination, the motivation to study when you’re not doing well, finishing the syllabus, getting to tutorials, and your results just don’t seem to be they used to be. How do you improve this?
If you’re honest with yourself, there’s also a lot of fear. Fear of failure, fear that perhaps you’re not smart enough for this, that perhaps you should be studying something else.
Something needs to change. You need effective study habits, and you desperately want to get rid of those fears and that uncertainty.
You need to find a new approach.
I’m Yvonne, and I’ve been there. I’ve felt that stress and anxiety about reaching my goals.
I was an over-achiever at school, but in later years of my degree and postgrad qualification, I couldn’t understand why I was studying harder than ever, and getting worse results. I was doing what I’d always done, and it wasn’t working anymore! I was afraid that I’d never pass and never achieve my academic goals. I thought perhaps I wasn’t as smart as everyone thought I was.
After qualifying, and lecturing students at all levels who were just like me, I discovered a life-changing concept and started incorporating it into my subjects’ teaching with great success.
I later created an online Study Coaching course (independent of subjects and academic content) to help students all over to understand their challenges and improve their studies.
My work is based on Prof Carol Dweck’s work on Fixed and Growth Mindsets.
By helping you understand your mindset, and how it DIRECTLY impacts your study habits, your beliefs about studying and your everyday life, I can help you improve your studies, and improve your anxiety and stress… without more Accounting lectures!
a little behind-the-scenes
We currently live in Montenegro. We love travelling, and we work online, so we have location-neutrality.
We focus on building our own business and developing our entrepreneurial skills. I believe these skills are so crucial for students, as we realise that we need to take greater responsibility for our careers and financial situations.
Montenegro is stunning. You can see more of it and the lifestyle we’ve worked so hard to create on my instagram account
