Study Skills
Bootcamp for Teenagers

Access to the online toolkit

All participants are given access to the Julie Edwards toolbox for one year. The toolbox provides tips, podcasts, YouTubes, and other resources to help you succeed in your studies.​

Learn how to find information

Many high school and university students struggle with where to find information. During the workshop, we look at various strategies to help find useful information to build essays and reports.​

give presentations a 'wow' factor

Students are required to give presentations throughout the year, and knowing how to make professional-looking presentations is a skill that is not only useful at school but university and at work. The participants in the 'Bootcamp' learn how to create compelling presentations.

time management

Participants are introduced to various ways to plan their assessments over a term.


Knowing how to cite the many sources of information is essential for students. We look at the critical data required to present the citations within assessments and the appropriate software that can make citing the source information, and producing a list of references so much easier.​

using word effectively

There are many tools available to students on the laptops that are not used to present assessments. However, once they learn how to use these tools, the presentation of their assessments can quickly go from satisfactory to 'wow' in minutes.

Various locations

I am holding a number of “Study Skills Bootcamps”  for teenagers in Cairns, Townsville, and Darwin.

The Study Skills Bootcamp can be booked for groups – please contact me for more information.
