Guidance Counselling at EISB / AA

This year I will continue to meet with our older students (MYP 4 / Grade 9 and above) to discuss their next academic steps; that is, what comes after EISB/AA?

I am also happy to help students with various other academic-related issues they may be having such as poor time-management, organization, study habits, etc.

The following provides a list of what students may seek help for:

  • Understanding university requirements, scholarships, application procedures, admissions, etc.
  • Learning more about universities in general, volunteer programs, internships, etc.
  • Learning to write effective motivation letters for university applications
  • Exploring their goals, interests, career ideas, personal ambitions, etc.
  • Learning more about themselves (e.g., personality types, learning styles, etc.)
  • Choosing their courses (for the IB DP and for university, etc.)
  • Using BridgeU, an online platform designed for university preparation
  • Dealing with academic problems (issues with projects, time management, studying, etc.)
  • Discussing anything related to their next steps (What comes after EISB?)

Students are free to drop by my office (Room 314) during my open hours (see image below for office hours), or they may make an appointment with me via email or in-person.

Parents, you are also welcome to contact me should you wish to discuss anything related to your child’s academic future, university preparation, etc.

More recently I've lived in cities such as Halifax, Canada; Maastricht, Netherlands; Phnom Penh, Cambodia; Seoul, South Korea; Incheon, South Korea; Victoria, Canada; Enschede, Netherlands; and now Bratislava, Slovakia!
