Taking the mystery out of how to  excel in high school and college!

The number one goal I have when I work with high school and college students is to elevate their success and confidence in every class they take
My passion is  to   STOP    the cycle of frustration and stress students feel trying to figure out how to get or maintain the grades they  want on their own. 

Unfortunately, students are usually   told  "what to"   learn   but   not shown    "how to" learn
Learning "how to" learn starts with understanding how your brain learns best. Then you can easily decide which strategies, tools or techniques to apply. 
You also learn how to be actively engaged while you study, which increases your awareness - in "real time" - what you know versus what you don't know

This insight allows you to plan highly productive study sessions so you know when you are ready for the test.

Every student deserves the opportunity to learn how to study efficiently and effectively

A key component that help students prioritize how they spend their time and increase their productivity is establishing routines and habits
That success provides the spark of confidence which helps them continue to take purposeful action. 

It gets even better, because increased confidence naturally leads to higher motivation !

Once students know what to do to be  successful... they can choose success.

The secret is taking the first step!

You will implement habits and routines to increase your productivity and get work done on time (or even in advance!).

As you implement what you are learning you will naturally build confidence. 

You will get results with less stress.

This personalized guidance is specifically designed to meet the individual needs of your junior high, high school or college student. 

I work 1-on-1 with students, developing their ability to learn and remember more in less time. They also learn how to put systems, habits and routines in place to get things done and measure progress. This works for any student, whether they are struggling or simply looking to take current performance to the next level. 

Content and length of the program is customized, generally ranging from 6 to 18 weeks.  Simply send me an email letting me know you are interested; there is no charge for the first call.
