"I had a particular challenging practicum that was becoming so unbearable. I was not getting support from my university and my mentor teacher was going through a personal difficulty where she was disconnected from teaching. I felt like an inconvenience where asking any questions was not ok and I was not getting much support or guidance. I was told I was failing but no one was willing to show me how to improve. I had already experienced a horrible prac in 2020 and I was about to give away my studies due to my mental health, and I just thought I wasn't cut out for teaching, when I saw this course online. OMG! What a difference it made. Rachel's training videos, lesson ideas, instructions and guidance were amazing. I watched her "managing a challenging mentor" modules and I was able to turn the experience around. There is so much support in the program and it filled the gaps that were evident on my prac. I ended up passing with flying colours and to think I could have thrown it all away. I am now in Rachel's full Mentorship program and it is the best investment I have made! I am so grateful I found this course."

"I had 2 really horrible prac experiences that took all my confidence and excitement for teaching. I was absolutely terrified about my next practicum. I have been in Rachel's facebook group and really like her videos and ideas that she shares all the time. I reached out to her and she suggested this course. It is absolutely awesome. It has everything I thought university would give us for our practical experiences! After listening to the training videos, setting up my goals and selecting which behaviour management strategies from Rachel suggestions, I was feeling confident again. The tasks she suggests for getting to know the students is amazing and so simple but really effective. She also taught me how to be more assertive and build my self confidence. I am so grateful to have found Rachel and her programs. If you feel lost like I did on pracs and had terrible experiences, you will be able to turn it around with this course! "

Feel prepared and organised for your upcoming practical experience as a pre-service teacher. Remove the stress and feel confident heading into your teaching experience with the right knowledge, tools and overview to maximise your achievements in your practicums.
"I was so excited to meet my class on prac and pumped to begin my first practicum. The students were great but the culture of the school was horrible. No teachers looked like they enjoyed teaching or wanted to be at school. I really struggled as my happiness seems to irritate the staff. I felt crushed and lost. My confidence dropped big time and I had no idea what to do. A friend recommended Rachel's programs so I had a look at this course as I was on prac. I thought the price was really reasonable, given what it said she would help with. It was exactly what I needed. No rushing through it quickly. I accessed the parts I needed and she helped me to get through that first prac that was just yuck. Rachel is really wise and taught me to be adaptable to my environment and see the gold in the hard stuff! Now I have 3 practicums under my belt and absolutely love teaching. Perspective is everything, Rachel taught me this and it's so true. If you are not being supported on your prac's, then this course is for you!"
