Katie Jones

Katie Jones  is known as Australia’s ‘Grade Transformation Expert’ due to her amazing success in catapulting students’ grades in exams and assessments.

With over 14 years experience in the UK and Australia as an external exam marker, scrutiny panel member, assessment moderator and national award-winning teacher, she’s dedicated herself to helping students master ‘all things exams’.

Her extensive experience across multiple exam boards means Katie knows EXACTLY what examiners and assessors are looking for and how this can sometimes differ to the ways that students learn information in class and homework.

This is why she works with high school and college students through her online services including the Exam Mastery program for schools, webinar student workshops, and study coaching membership program, plus as a casual relief teacher to keep herself in the classroom too, to help them ‘show they know’ their stuff when it comes to exams and assessment.

Katie is the expert in transforming students’ grades and confidence, so they achieve best possible results, feel in control of their study and enjoy the journey along the way
