About Us

Our Academic Coaching team from left to right; Karlee, Jessi (owner) and Tom!

 Steponafish Academic Coaching is a locally owned and operated family business that began in October 2011 when Jessica, our Director and academic coach, more affectionately known as 'Jessi', found that many school students and working families in the Port Stephens area needed a little extra help. Steponafish Academic Coaching  is proud to be the recipient of the 2012 Port Stephens Examiner Small Business Award.

'Learning through learning' is the motto that drives those associated with Steponafish Academic Coaching. Our coaches learn just as much as the students we work with hence creating an integrated, inclusive and positive learning environment.

Our business' unique name is a tribute to our company director's family, who inspired and motivated her to embark on the wonderful journey of working with and educating children.
