Ian Powell·Someone who has learnt how to learn
Founder of New Paradigm Education and The Genius Tree, I have been working in the Arts and Education for over 25 years. My principle claim is having learned how to learn: I have taken that ability and applied it to diverse activities including writing, publishing, graphic design, event organisation, music, art, sport and languages (French & Spanish). Teaching Maths, French, English and Music, I have worked with large groups and private students, coaching people to develop their skills with ease and most importantly, fun. I have a low tolerance for boredom and I love to share my inspiration for life generally.

Pricing information


My experience is an educational activity and the 14-day cooling-off period under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 therefore applies. After the 14 day period my standard policy will apply.

No refunds are given except in the case of a cancellation by the Mentor.

Sorry, previous experience of time wasters suggests that a level of commitment is required. No refunds given for any sessions missed or cancelled. This is a group experience which greatly improves when a shared level of interest mutually feeds the discussions and boosts the outcome for everyone concerned.
