Study Skills: Improve Your Ability to Focus and Concentrate
Focus and concentration can be horribly challenging, but really they are skills you can hone and improve. This class teaches concrete techniques and simple habits that train your brain to behave when you need it to.
It's simple: students with good focusing skills learn more in less time. They remember better and feel more engaged with the material. They enjoy learning more because they don't find it as frustrating, dreary, and unending. But most students struggle with concentration.

Other students feel overloaded and overwhelmed - but there are ways to work more efficiently and effectively! I'm excited to share these tips, tricks, habits, and techniques with my students.
