About Logadassen Peruman
Logadassen is from Mauritius, a tiny tropical island in the Indian Ocean, located on the Eastern coast of Madagascar and South Africa. He was born, has grew up and still lives on the island.
As a proactive high school teacher with nearly four decades of teaching experience under his belt, Logadassen has always strived to find solutions to improve the academic performance of his teenage students.
He mentors adolescents who lack motivation to study, while also encouraging them to participate in extracurricular activities. He is currently working with young adults, including young couples, within the community to enhance their awareness on “Positive Discipline and Character Building in the family”.
Logadassen has majored with a double degree in Physics and Education. Moreover, he has a strong interest in Educational Leadership, having spent over 3 years of doing research in this field, as part of his postgraduate degree in Educational Leadership Management with the University of Leicester (UK).
Both his extensive experience as an educator and his research findings demonstrated that many students were willing to perform optimally at school but they failed to understand why they still got lower than expected grades. Many just missed the boat because they could not find what was wrong by themselves. Some even fall in a state of ‘learned helplessness ‘.
As a Head of the Physics Department and later Section Leader in high school, he has had the responsibility to constantly assess and improve students’ learning strategies. Logadassen is passionate about alternative methods of education and he believes that improving the emotional intelligence of students do help them to do well on their academic path.
The Academic Life Coaching(ALC) course was just the toolbox that he needed to repurpose his life to assist students at a different level! His determination to follow the ALC online course, despite the 11-12 hour time difference, was shown by him waking up at 2.30 a.m Mauritian time just in time to attend the 2- hour course, for nearly seven months, then leaving home for work at 6.40 a.m ! He has no regrets!

What is great about Mauritius?
As a former French and then British colony, Mauritius, an Indian Ocean island nation, is known for its beaches, lagoons and reefs. The mountainous interior includes Black River Gorges National Park, with rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails and wildlife. Capital Port Louis has sites such as the Champs de Mars horse track and 18th-century Botanical Gardens. Mauritian Creole, French and English are mostly spoken on the island. While English is the only official language, the lingua franca is Mauritian Creole and the newspapers and television programs are usually in French. The island is a melting pot of cultures with Indian, African, Chinese and French citizens adding to its unique diversity. Hence the food served in most Mauritian homes is a true paradise for the palate and the senses. The Mauritius weather is very pleasant and benefits many hours of bright sunny skies all year round! Population: 1.2 million. Just awesome!!!
