Dr Awawdeh had an extensive experience teaching mathematics at a high school level when she made it her mission to find out why students find mathematics too challenging. Her research into mathematics education and cognition gave her the secret sauce for teaching for understanding. After completing her PhD at UNSW, she decided to put the theory into practice and started Global Education Academy.
Dr Awawdeh’s previous experience at UNSW managing and writing International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) mathematics as well as the complex field of large-scale assessments gave her an immeasurable insight into the specific learning needs of students.
She also has extensive experience with writing General Achievement Test (GAT) for mathematics. Teaching mathematics in high schools for more than 25 years instilled in her an appreciation for teaching for UNDERSTANDING.
Global Education Academy (GEA) has evolved as a result of the founder’s, Dr Majeda Awawdeh, passion for teaching, her research into Cognitive Load Theory and the belief that education and knowledge should be shared. In 2011 Global Tutoring was established. Within two years, it evolved into Global Education Academy. As a research-based learning centre, GEA converges research and teaching methods. We put the theory into practice and transform the learning experience.

Dear GEA staff and teachers, I can’t believe Ema’s Year 6 journey is over. The last 2 years were very difficult in many ways and obviously made Ema’s preparation for selective and scholarship exams quite challenging. I have to thank all of the GEA staff and teachers from the bottom of my heart as even though there was a lot of “unknown” in our kids’ lives they made Ema’s study journey so much easier. Clear communication, very approachable staff helping us to navigate with online learning and most of all dedicated teachers helping our kids with their preparation for the exams and overall progress in their studies…
I cannot Thank Global Education Academy enough, I thought by enrolling my son to a private school he is receiving the best education possible. I was so wrong. Since kindergarten, his report was not that great, and I was a super concern, and whenever I raised my concerns with his class teacher I was told not worry, every kid is different and that he was doing well.
After reaching out to Global Education Academy within the first two weeks I could see the difference.
I am not sure what magic spell Kate is using on my son, but it is working! Thank you, Kate, for making my son believe in his ability, I am super confident that he is in good hands. I cannot wait to see his school report.
“Hello, I thought I’d share some positive feedback on my son, Zac, tutoring experience from GEA Kogarah. He thoroughly enjoys his lessons with Ms Caroline each week so much so he looks forward to them. He finds learning fun even being on zoom. I have to say that if it wasn’t for her tutoring “pro-ess” and ability to keep him engaged he would definitely be further behind with the impact of COVID / homeschooling. Please pass on thanks and kudos. Cheers”
“Just so you know yesterday I observed Aidan doing his online tutoring classes and I must say I was impressed. Your platform is much better than what his school is currently using and I actually think he enjoyed the work which is great! He seemed quite focused and engaged with what the class is doing which was good to see.”
