Teaching Style

This includes pre-lesson resources so you can learn even faster. Julia has a big focus on safety, awareness of your surroundings and following the road rules. The lessons can be intensive or you can take a more relaxed & slower approach. Julia can cater to whatever your needs are. If you would like to learn quickly, Julia has a 10 lesson mini package that will cover all the basics in a set defined timetable and you will know what you will do in each lesson right from the start.


Julia’s style is to explain things as clearly and simply as possible and in plenty of time, that way you can prepare early and reduce the effects of surprises. Julia can answer all your driving questions. Her goal is for you to learn as much as you can as as soon as you can and become the best and safest driver that you can be. Julia will try to make your lessons interesting, informative and fun.


Julia has been trained in both advanced & defensive driving techniques and has extensive experience teaching a wide range of students including:

  • University & High School students

Driving Techniques

One of Julia’s big specialities is teaching Reverse Parallel Parking. She can show you in just 10-15 minutes how to park anywhere, driving any vehicle (not just a driving school car), in any space even if the road curves and even if there are trees in between. You can use this “easy method” in whatever vehicle you or your family may have. Most people are surprised at how EASY Reverse Parking becomes.


Julia also specialises in teaching:

  • Lane Changing, Merging in Traffic
  • managing confusing Busy Intersections
  • Roundabouts
  • Driving Test Preparation
  • City & Freeway Driving and Night & Wet Weather driving.


Julia can explain all these topics easily and quickly. Julia prides herself in making the most difficult tasks SIMPLE. If this is your very first driving lesson or driving attempt Julia can get you started on the correct path so then you won’t need to unlearn bad habits.


For any enquiries you may send me a message.

*Due to the confined small environment of the car, we ask please in advance if you are able to PLEASE NOT:

  • wear any perfumes
  • colognes
  • fragrances
  • body sprays
  • strong smelling deodorants etc.

Because most of them can be quite intense especially on hot days even in tiny doses and they give others in the car headaches, stick to the seatbelt, soak into the car upholstery & can hang around for up to a week. Driving testers also complain that they can’t breathe & it also affects other students.

Freedom, Independence, Opportunities

Driving Benefits

Having a drivers licence can mean:

  • having a job or getting a better one
  • the ability to travel more freely
  • do your groceries
  • go to the shop
  • visit friends
  • start a new hobby or do a sport, etc.

Being able to drive yourself whenever and wherever you chose means you don’t need to rely on anyone to give you a lift or have to deal with the vargaries of needing to rely on public transport. When you can drive yourself you have FREEDOM, INDEPENDENCE and OPPORTUNITIES that you don’t otherwise have.

Other things Julia offer

Julia offers a variety of lesson packages in either her brand new automatic Dual Control Hybrid Toyota Corolla or your own car. Whatever driving skills you need to master, Julia can help.

If you would like to learn manual, Julia can train you in your car.

Julia’s school is also child friendly. If you have a child car seat you are most welcome to bring your child on your lesson.

I picked Julia because I don't think anyone could be a more reluctant and anxious learner than me. Her website said nervous learners were catered for, and from the beginning of the first lesson I could see that she was ready and willing to be patient, and encouraging enough to match my (low!) level of confidence. Having never been in the driver's seat before and getting past middle-aged, I needed all the support I could get, and Julia delivered. I have no hesitation recommending her for any learner needing to go from zero experience to safely driving in Sydney traffic.

Love Julia. She really made me feel at ease and was so accommodating to my preferred learning style. She's personable, kind and really good at explaining manoeuvres. She always listened to me and really felt like my partner in this process. Got my licence first time.

I haven’t driven for a long time so I booked a refresher lesson with Julia. She was extremely patient with me and a fantastic teacher! She made sure to reassure me when practicing my parking skills. I definitely recommend her.

Highly recommend Julia as best driving instructor in the Eastern Suburbs and so much better than my other instructor. I am actually looking forward to driving manual now. I wasn't like that after my first lesson with the other instructor. He made me feel so bad that it turned me off from learning manual. But with Julia, I actually want to keep practicing. And I'm actually more confident to sit next to my son for him to practice too. Win win for all 👍🏻 Julia has amazing patience and teaches the right way before you even start driving. Her explanations and guidance is really helpful for someone who has anxiety and great help for my son who has autism. Don’t go to cheap driving instructors. They will just waste your time and money. Julia is worth every dollar. Thank you Julia for providing both my son and I the confidence to drive manual. All the very best to you x
