Former Counter-Intelligence Agent Shares “TOP SECRET” STUDY SKILLS Programs:

“on a scale of 10, it was an 11!”

Vincent Chiappetta, Brother Martin High School

MYTH:  GOOD GRADES equals GOOD STUDY!

TRUTH:  Many students graduate from high school without truly learning how to study.  It’s no secret that even though college c o s t s are SKYROCKETING, the s u c c e s s rates are PLUMMETING.  Too many students face more challenging academic courses and struggle because they have never really learned to learn.  This program is designed to give students an edge by giving them tools to learn and perform.

These programs are designed to give students a “users” manual for their minds when it comes to learning. Many students don’t truly learn to study until they reach a challenging level.  Then it might be too late to learn how they “learn”.  We believe the younger a student begins to understand learning, and how they best learn, the sooner they gain an appreciation for learning.  The side effect is that students understand “how” they learn, and can overcome many obstacles that before seemed to be an excuse for NOT learning or performing in school.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. 1. What if my son or daughter doesn’t want to attend?

It comes as no suprise that most students have little interest in attending a “school” related workshop on a Saturday morning.  We understand that many parents strongly encourage their students to attend.  We do not take this committment to their learning lightly,  and will assure you that it will be a worthwhile experience!  Students describe this study skills program as FUN, POWERFUL, and AMAZING!  This is not your average study skills program and while we have fun, we take learning very seriously!

  1. 2. Is there a charge for the parents session?

We highly encourage parents to attend the parent session, there is no charge! We also encourage parents to sit in the back of the student session.  (Please keep in mind, we will be taping the program and have DVD’s available for purchase for a nominal fee, just in case you feel that  your presence may impede your student’s learning.)

  1. 3. What is the “The DEATH OF HAROLD” and can we attend that section of the program?

(Told at the conclusion of the program) We close the program with a TRUE inspirational story called “The DEATH OF HAROLD”.  Ray tells an amazing story of overcoming seemingly impossible odds you don’t want to miss!    We would be happy if you join us for the last half hour of the program.

  1. 4. What type of student should attend this program?

Whether your son or daughter is preparing for college or they desire to achieve strong academic results in high school, there will be benefit for them attending the workshop.  This is the same program we conduct for college students and is beneficial for top students, or those who wish to become top students!

  1. 5. Do we need to bring anything?

We will provide pen, a TOP SECRET Manual, snacks and drinks.  You might want to bring a sweater in case it gets cold in the room.
