Our Vision... A world where everyone meets their true potential of being happy, healthy, successful & satisfied.

BRAIN-BASED TEACHING & LEARNING THROUGH WELL-BEING
with international educational presenters
​'The Mind-Brain Lady' & 'The Mindful Man'

Take your school to the next level with this cutting-edge, school-wide initiative.
Our educational training is designed to boost the well-being & academic success of every single student, to improve pedagogical practices & staff well-being, and to engage parents as ​effective partners in their children's ​learning journey.
And, it’s all based on the latest in educational neuroscience & psychology.

We teach the brain-science behind staff & student well-being, and its direct impact on teaching & learning. 

We ​show s​tudents year 1-12, teachers and parents how to link ​cutting-edge brain-science & psychology with education - in real, practical ways, ​to​ make teaching & learning enjoyable, engaging, easier and as effective as possible.

Staff and Student Well-Being

It's simple - and it works.

Instead of focusing on what we don't want, we focus more on what we do want - so you can do the same!

Instead of focusing on staff & student stress - we boost staff & student well-being.
Instead of focusing on bad behaviour - we increase student engagement.
Instead of focusing on bullying - we encourage compassion & kindness.
Instead of focusing on distracted students - we gain student attention and maintain it.
Instead of focusing on lack of effort & motivation - we make learning meaningful & relevant.
Instead of focusing on dealing with disinterested parents - we engage parents as collaborative partners.
Instead of focusing on anxiety - we build student resilience & self-acceptance.
Instead of focusing on low achievement - we improve student memory, thinking & understanding.

And, best of all, we show teachers, students & parents how it's easier than you think to do this too.

This IS the future of schooling; the Mind-Brain Education Revolution has begun!

We believe all teachers, students & parents deserve this training - especially those considered 'disadvantaged'.
We aim to help young people realise & reach their incredible true potential, regardless of their circumstances.
And, we are extremely passionate about, and experienced in, all of the above!

Question: Why has this not been done before now??”Teacher, New Zealand, 2019

Our training provides schools with simple, practical tools, techniques, pedagogical practices & knowledge to improve staff & student well-being AND teaching & learning simultaneously.

"I highly recommend Tammy-Anne and Todd's presentation for both staff and students.
Tammy-Anne has summarised complex concepts from neuroscience into a format that all can understand and enjoy. Our students were highly engaged in the sessions, and their learnings from
'The Mind-Brain Lady' & 'The Mindful Man' will set them up for life-long learning."

WE'RE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY 100% OF PRINCIPALS WHO HAVE BOOKED US ACROSS AUSTRALIA & NZ

Excellent presentation tailored to our specific needs! Tammy-Anne is an enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable educator in her field and exudes passion as she delivers her content…. We will definitely have Tammy-Anne back to deliver more content in the future!

​"Tammy-Anne is an exceptional teacher and workshop presenter for sure! She is very smart, creative and enthusiastic. She has great ability to communicate complex mind-brain concepts at a level that can be absorbed by anyone. And she is an excellent listener making her a pleasure to work with. I have been present at her professional development workshops and programs - she gets an A+ from me and from everyone who attends. You can trust that she will deliver very professional, dynamic presentations for teachers, students and parents. I commend her to you, 100%!"

"The BRAIN is central to all LEARNING that we do –
so if we’re in the business of LEARNING –
doesn’t it make sense that we know how the BRAIN learns best?"

When our brains are in a state of stress, we literally cannot teach or learn as effectively as possible.
When our brains are 'happy and healthy', only then can we meet our incredible true potential.

We explain how to reduce major factors that cause teacher, parent & student stress, at the same time as increasing teacher effectiveness, parental engagement & student academic learning & well-being outcomes – all based on cutting-edge brain-science & psychology.

It turns out that the detrimental effects of 'stress' on both staff & student brains are largely the same, and using a clever application of brain-science & psychology to education, we can apply the same solutions to both staff & students equally – often simultaneously!

When we as teachers use these cutting-edge pedagogical practices & evidence-based solutions to improve staff & student well-being,  we  improve both our ability to teach and the ability of our students to learn successfully.

The research is clear; a young person's education is enhanced when they - and their parents & teachers - have a clear understanding of how a student's brain works, learns & grows best - and when we all use this knowledge in our daily teaching & learning practice. 

This is the future of Education – now!

We use a UNIQUE evidence-based approach...

The Australian Student Well-Being Framework

  • We do not separate Teaching & Learning from Well-Being; rather we explain how they are interconnected and provide practical, proven research-based pedagogical strategies to boost staff & student well-being, teaching & learning simultaneously.
  • This is NOT a program. This is NOT a weekly lesson. This is TRAINING in a world-leading, research-based, holistic APPROACH to brain-based pedagogical practices and student empowerment that boosts well-being AND teaching & learning success in every subject, every lesson and every year level - every day, for every school community.
  • Our training and workshops are for Teachers, Students Yr 1 – 12 & Parents, because when the Whole-School Community is on the same page – that’s when the biggest benefits are experienced.
  • We help students and teachers realise & reach their incredible TRUE potential, using our unique, evidence-based 'Holistic Approach to Educational Neuroscience'; an approach at the forefront of the future in education, supported by recommendations from the OECD’s Centre for Educational Research & Innovation (CERI) & The Australian Student Well-Being Framework.
  • We remove the complexity & mystery surrounding OUR MIND & BRAIN; the part of our body which is so crucial & fundamental to our very existence (and of course, to well-being, teaching & learning) - empowering everyone with the knowledge of what’s going on inside their own brains, minds and bodies when they learn, think, feel, move and act - and the strategies & benefits of improving well-being. 
  • With a combined 13 years of teaching experience, including Tammy-Anne's 8 years of using this exact approach in primary and secondary classrooms, we certainly know it works to make teaching & learning more effective, easier and enjoyable while boosting staff & student well-being.
