Awakening & Cultivating Potenial

Academic Tutors

Recent advances in neuroscience are highlighting connections between emotion, social functioning, and decision-making that have the potential to revolutionize our understanding of the role of affect in education.
In particular, the neurobiological evidence suggests that the aspects of cognition that we recruit most heavily in schools, namely learning, attention, memory, decision making, and social functioning, are both profoundly affected by and subsumed within the processes of emotion.
In essence, those that are more highly attuned to self and other do better in school and enjoy greater levels of fulfillment and joy in their personal lives.


We support parents and primary caregivers of children diagnosed with autism. You can allocate your autism funding toward academic tutoring and academic strategy sessions. We work with your child at a personalised level to cultivate academic success and confidence in their lives. As parents our greatest wish is to raise a happy, healthy, confident and fully capable human being. 

All Age Levels

Practical, pragmatic and easy to implement methods of self-awareness and academic strategies. Clarifying your personal ways of learning is an important step in becoming a successful student. As science and math educators we know much about one’s physiology and how we can get unstuck from negative patterns that dampen the joy and academic confidence in our lives. 

Academic Advocacy

We work with and support families with neurotypical children as well as developmentally challenged children, adolescents and young adults. Our specialty is academic advocacy where we liaison between you, your child and the school or university. Advocacy is specifically curtailed to your family needs. 

Online Academic Tutoring

One of the great advantages of our service is that we come to you! Either we meet online, which is efficient and easy or we offer the convenience of this specialised tutoring in the comfort of your own home.
