Elizabeth Goh isn’t a fan of writing about herself in third-person, even if she loves writing. Elizabeth decided she didn’t get enough English, History or Legal Studies at Abbotsleigh School for her own HSC in 2010 so she came back to help others survive it with Art of Smart Education. She’s since done a mish-mash of things with her life which includes studying a Bachelor of Arts (Politics and International Relations) with a Bachelor of Laws at Macquarie University, working for NSW Parliament, and writing about writing.

Claire Santhaseelan loves English and Biology mostly because she had brilliant teachers in those subjects, and became a coach with Art of Smart over 3 years ago to help other students develop that same passion. She finished her Bachelor of Advanced Science (Biological Sciences) and Honours at UNSW last year and is studying a Master of Teaching degree at USYD to become a secondary science teacher. She wants to study English at university too at some point so that she can be an awesome English/Science teacher and show students that you can love both equally.
