Exciting 5 dimentional and accelerated learning practice – and Workshops coming up in Bristol!

Hi, I’m Tanya.

My dream is to see every child on the planet receive free high quality education. I want to empower children and adults so that they understand accelerated learning and how to bring out the best in students.

Children represent the future, they are amazing teachers and incredibly inspiring.

Education is very important, if we get it right we can resolve all the issues facing humanity.

I love the idea of children learning about how to grow food, how energy works and how to teach each other.

Pay it Forward is a big part of my life, I write blog posts for www.pifexperience.org about paying it forward with education.

By sharing their lives, the children begin to realize the importance of caring for their classmates.”
