About Me

I am highly qualified, with over 40 years of experience in teaching, counselling and research. I specialise in helping students with learning difficulties, through a unique combination of holistic tutoring and psychotherapy principles.
I have vast experience in tutoring for the HSC and International Baccalaureate level I, and many of my students keep coming back to me during their uni days for help and support.
My focus has always been on catering for the individual student in a holistic way. As such I believe that I offer a rare combination of being able to combine my educational and psychotherapeutical skills. In incorporating these, I can identify the strengths and weaknesses of students and tailor one-on-one tutoring/counselling sessions to aid in developing their potential and maximizing their results.

If you believe that I could help you or your child, please contact me to arrange a short consultation.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Michele Vuaran has phenomenally impacted my learning and assisted in the growth of my mental health. She is currently helping me to achieve my IB diploma with flying colours in History and English. She has been able to understand me on a deep, emotional level, which allows us to have meaningful conversations. This has allowed me to understand myself better and improve my mental state (which) I have not been able to achieve with any other counsellor and I am eternally grateful for her wisdom.

Furthermore, she has dramatically increased my English and History marks due to her ability to proofread my essays and teach me new skills along the way. Without her counselling and teaching skills, I would be an extremely different person and I cannot thank her enough. I am looking forward to continuing my schooling career with her.


Michele (Vuaran) has been a constant support throughout my University studies for over the past 4 years and has offered me tutoring in my degree at ACU (Bachelor of Education in Primary and Early Childhood).

During this period of my studies which had been very stressful and at times I have felt extremely anxious. Michele with her knowledge and past experience in teaching and counselling has directed me back on the right path with her good listening skills, which made me feel very comfortable…. She showed great empathy, compassion and honest feedback.

Michele has made herself constantly available over the past 4 years…. giving me guidance in all areas of my studies. I have found Michele to be very approachable with constructive feedback over these years, which has made me more confident in exceling in my abilities. I feel that with Michele’s guidance and feedback I have achieved high level results.


Michele Vuaran helped me with HSC Advanced English and Modern History during my HSC year. She read over draft essays correcting mistakes and helped me identify where I could make stronger points. She also helped me develop an understanding on topics I was struggling with.

Michele taught me more about academic writing to improve and strengthen my essays. Often after spending an hour with Michele, I left feeling motivated and encouraged to improve and do more the next time I saw her.


I contacted Michele Vuaran (some months ago) when I came to the realisation that I needed professional help to reduce my anxiety levels.

Michele gave me many strategies including mindfulness techniques to help lower my anxiety levels and deal with stressful personal and work situations.

Michele is a deeply caring and genuine person who was fully invested in improving the quality of my life.

I would highly recommend Michele for anyone in a similar situation.
