Yr 7 Maths Tutoring

I'm a qualified high school teacher with a science (biology) degree. I have experience teaching junior maths and science in QLD state schools.

I have a wide range of subjects that I can eventually offer but I'm going through a challenging time and I'm new to the group. So, I'd like to start with Yr7 Maths as a starting point.

I'm very approachable and can put students at ease especially if they are shy or lacking in confidence.

I hold a current Queensland College of Teachers Registration which I can provide and I also have a blue card exemption number to provide that allows me to work with children until I receive my physical card.

The current mode I offer is via online tuition. Software Program TBA.

Price involves a pre-tuition catchup session to see what help is needed. This is a good time to provide any specific worksheets or materials you wish me to help your child cover. Also to tell me about any specific learning styles or other related matters so I can prepare for how to cater to those needs.

*Please note state schools have strict conditions on assignments being the students own work so help with these is best taken up with the classroom teacher.

(My Qualifications: -

- Bachelor Science/Bachelor Arts, USQ: majors: Biology, German, Journalism

- Diploma of Learning and Teaching, Highschool, USQ.)

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Large Peace Lillies

Beautiful large green leafy peace littles with large borad leaves. Three plants total. Would love them to go to a good home that will cherish them. They prefer to be inside or protected by a screen as caterpillers like to attack them. These plants have been acustomed to high shade with gentle morning sun which they need.

Swapping Chain - Finds swaps for you

Hello BrisLets community,

Swapping is hard because you have to have what the other person wants and they have to want what you have.  And you have to agree on value.  It is too much work.

With this in mind I went about solving this issue and created the free to use Swapping Chain.  Each person in the group adds up to three items to the group and chooses up to three items from the group.  if someone wants your item and you want someone else's item then you get an exchange match.  

For example, my item will go to Bob, Bob'd goes to Mary, mary's to Sally and so on until someone sends me their item.  

Members of the Swapping Chain create a group and then create different swapping chains.  For BrisLets a Swapping Chain could be "Labour Exchange for food".

If you would like to join the "BrisLets" Swapping Chain group, please visit this link and sign up.  It is a great way to save money and decrease waste.  It is free to use.

Admin Work

I can:

  • help you manage your CES Exchanges,
  • build and maintain WordPress websites,
  • Manage and set up Facebook groups and pages
  • I can do Newsletters, Mailouts and Promotional Material
  • support members and admins.

I have done quite a bit of that over the years.
I did admin work for BrisLETs last year and for Noosa LETS when there was no one locally.


I have a keyboard, and some IT skills and I have retired from a long career in management and social service.

You can pay me in units if you want but usually, it’s a pretty quick job for exchanges that need help and I have time and a commitment to LETS

  • I can do any of the LETS admin tasks for you and quite a bit more.
  • I can point you to ways you and your team can learn to do these tasks.
  • I can help you if you get stuck.

Personal Advocacy

people find it hard to have their rights and opinions respected. It is sometimes useful to have a person with the right skills and knowledge to support you. Sometimes you just need to be pointed in the right direction, and sometimes it's good to have someone walk with you

An advocate

I worked for many years in various teaching, management and advocacy roles. I am quite good at advocacy.

I am happy to support you as a peer advocate.

  • help you sort out the issues,
  • find resources,
  • discuss options, without pressuring you,
  • write the letters,
  • attend meetings and talk to people with you.

I am NOT a professional advocate, I am not insured, and I work for 30 units an hour and I don't make decisions on your behalf, there is no warranty.

If I think you are wrong, I will honestly say so. I will support you in getting your rights but I won't support you in using systems for mistreating others.

Some of the situations where people might use my advocacy are interactions with government departments like Services Australia (Centrelink), Department of Housing, NDIS, and Health and Aging. I can help you prepare consumer complaints and follow up on refunds and warranties.
I can support you with computer fraud but mostly that is changing your passwords and referring the issue to the appropriate authorities.

Sometimes all it takes is to make a phonecall

I am neither a lawyer, an accountant, a union official, a doctor or a tax expert but we can find you one if you need one.
We might even be able to find you a specialist advocate at the right price.

Organisations usually require that you fill out a form appointing me as your advocate before they will talk with me. As much as possible I will never talk about you, without you.

Usually, I would encourage you NOT to employ me.
Self Advocacy is the best kind of Advocacy because you learn how to support yourself.

I offer a free 1/4-hour consultation to LETS members 0434 764 082 and there are free resources and links on this site.

Spinal Flow Treatment

Spinal Flow is a gentle treatment that assists the body to awaken it's inate ability to heal its self by creating an energy flow.
The flowing energy through the body helps to unblock trauma caused from either physical, chemical or psychological.
There are several access points on the body where light pressure is applied to start the flow and bring the energy through the body.
The main access points worked on are the sacrum and the cranial points which  basically reconnect the brain and spine together again.
This awakens the central nervous system to communicate with the rest of the body to release and heal past traumas.
Treatments usually only take 15-30 mins each. Everybody is different and it may bring up lots of emotions depending on the trauma that's being released so it's best to do it slowly and gradually hence the shorter treatment times.
First treatment will need a consultation prior.
All treatments are a mobile service.
I also offer natural beauty therapy, aromatherapy, energy frequency healing and I have a couple of Healy devices for hire which work on Nikola Tesla's healing frequency work.
U60 for initial consultation and treatment.
U50 for 1/2 hr or add U20 per extra 1/2 hr  and $15 + depending on travel distance to cover fuel costs.
