This is the ultimate resource for students.

Are you looking for something to do this summer for yourself or your child that will hep you prepare for the school year? Do you need help with organization, test taking skills, speed reading or ending procrastination? The study skills webinar is for you. We have 8 videos to guide you or your student through our study skills bootcamp and help them get ready for school or get ahead mid-year.

“I bought this for my daughter and watched it first myself and then with her. There is a lot of information, we are planning on watching it again before next semester. The second time I watched it I was able to talk to my daughter about some of the tips, which was great. It was actually a fun way for us to bond and I was even able to use some of the free gifts as an adult like the list maker and how to tackle big projects…a WAY better investment than camp!”

Active Reading Example: Here we show you how to outline as you read and is our precursor to speed reading. We have a passage highlighted and filled out for you to see how this process works in action.

Analyzing an Event Graph: This graph is helpful for visual learners (covered in Video 8) and can be used for writing papers as well as active reading when learning about events. In this graph we split events (great for History, Science and English) into sections so they can be applied to essays for broad questions and multiple choice for details.

Book Shell Template: This is a must have for English classes. Do you have trouble getting the main ideas of books? Or how about remembering books you read at the beginning of the year on the final? This shell will help you keep track of what you read and is great to print and keep in your binders.

Checklist for Tests: This is a comprehensive list of all of the things students should do before a test to help them be prepared. We cover many of the methods of test-taking in Video 7 and ways to study for each type of learner.

Cornell Sheet: In Video 5, we discuss the different types of note-taking and how to apply these to each subject. We discuss the Cornell System as a way of taking notes and here we have given you the free Cornell sheet to practice.

Foreign Language Shortcuts: Have trouble making those pesky accent marks? Here is a keyboard guide to getting them right.

Most Popular Words: We use these for practice memorizing and for any foreign language. This can be great to review before finals, to keep up with a language over a vacation or just as extra. Make sure you know the 500 most popular words in your foreign language and you will be set for verbal, audio and reading comprehension in foreign languages.

Grade Tracking Sheet: Many times student’s bad grades sneak up on them. We have given you a free grade-tracking sheet to put in binders for each class to log your grades. You can catch teacher’s mistakes as well!

Reading Exercise 1 and 2

Review Paper Graph: When learning to write papers in Video 6, learning to breakdown the parts of a review paper or an event is essential. In this lesson we cover the 4 types of papers, how to outline and research them and how to write conclusions and introductions. This graph breaks down one type of paper in another format. Feel free to print and use for each paper.

Roots: If you plan on taking any form of standardized test and are not in Latin, this worksheet is for you. Learning basic Latin Roots are great for building vocabulary and learning words.
