Starting Over


 with Lisa Oliver

short description:
Encouraging older women to live life to the fullest
long description:
Starting Over is a course specifically designed for older women who have spent most of their lives caring for others, but who are now seeking to inject some more fun and passion into their own lives. The course will help women to understand their personal motivations and to use this information to create exciting goal plans for themselves.

The central theme behind the course is "you can do anything" yet the practical nature of the course means women can tailor their course experience into any area of life they chose - from work, health, home life, creativity, or simply enjoying life.

The course will consist of ten lessons designed to be completed twice weekly. Each student will be given exercises to complete and resources to read, and the work submitted to me will be used to help the students reach their desired outcome.
level of difficulty:

description of :
Learning new things is what keeps me young and having the ability to work with others to help them get more out of life is the main theme in my life. As a teacher you will find me friendly, approachable and easy to work with as we explore the lessons you want to learn.
Teacher's qualifications:
From an academic perspective I have a degree in Business Communication and Psychology. I also have diplomas in Journalism and Counseling. I am the author of seven books ranging in topics from domestic violence to the paranormal, to dealing with autistic children and coping with perimenopause. I also have a strong interest in alternative medicines, art, Wicca and basically living life in general.
's preferred teaching style:
The key point in my work as a teacher is to provide you with the knowledge and skills you are looking for in a way that makes it fun to learn. What I prefer to do is to provide my students with written information for them to read, that we then discuss through a chat function. I provide a lot of resources for most of my courses that are free as part of the course and I offer quick feedback on any written exercises I have asked you to do. I believe in having as much interaction with my students on a one-to-one basis as possible so that the learning process is actually a mutual one.
Some of my courses offered are more counseling and advice giving in nature, and in those situations I prefer the live online option so that you can explain personally the things that you would like help with.
