Meet Bron

Bron’s goal is to inspire you to write the essays you’re capable of writing, but can’t yet see. She has a natural ability to quickly identify where you’re struggling and give you the tools and strategies to create immediate change. 

With a double degree in social work and social science, Bron escaped overseas and found herself working and studying internationally, in search of the perfect career. 

Having worked at the University of Sydney in public health research, on a local council in community and youth development, as the manager of a women’s health centre, and as a researcher on a variety of social research projects in the United States and Australia, Bron decided it was time to start her own business.

Now with her days spent tutoring, editing, running workshops and providing free online support to students through the Research Den, she has become an expert in teaching essay writing. In any spare time she provides research consultancy and lecturing in VET and tertiary settings.

Author of The Night Before Essay Planner (Fairfax Books) and the High School Essay Planner (Fairfax Books), she has also written and published articles in several international academic journals. 

Bron’s casual and open personality alongside her dynamic approach to tutoring and lecturing has earned the respect of her students and colleagues. In 2009 she won the University of Newcastle Leadership Award ($10,000) and the Asia-Pacific Entrepreneur Award ($1000).
