I create independent learners who become the top academic achievers in their school in 30 to 60 days. I teach time-tested tools that have been taught across 33 universities, including Cambridge and LSE. The skills cover reading, memory and study techniques. Each of 30 tools can be taught in two to three minutes. The memory techniques take a bit longer (30 minutes) but work immediately. The study techniques remove all the stress from study time, and cut study time from 25% to 60%.
Each tool is introduced in a logical order, and can be observed in an online setting. There are also quick, concise videos on each tool available on a website. Besides personal attention there are also daily webinars my students (and their parents) may attend.
I am a reading & learning specialist. I developed a course which helps dyslexics overcome their poor reading skills. Since 2009, the UK government has funded my SuperReading course for all dyslexic university students. It is the only course they fund (through the DSA) because all graduates become better readers than any non-dyslexic. These skills work brilliantly from age 10 and older. I have also taught at Apple, IBM, HP, Sony, AMD, RBS, the NHS, the MoD, GCHQ, Philips and two dozen other large companies.
I have been working as a trainer/coach/tutor (group and personal) since 1988. I am most happy when helping others to succeed. I am currently working as an associate trainer with several companies and taking business through my own company.
In 1995 I launched my SuperReading Program while living in Silicon Valley. My first big company was HP. They trialled the program, and immediately ordered three more courses. They ordered back-to-back courses for 9 years until I moved to the UK. During those nine years I also taught at IBM, Apple, AMD, Sony, Cisco, Pfizer, Fujitsu, Sun Microsystems and many more.
In the UK I taught courses at LloydsTSB, ASDA, Barclays, Royal Bank of Scotland, GCHQ, Practical Law Company, London School of Economics, The MoD, LSE and the London University City Law School. My SuperReading course has been taught at more than 25 universities in the UK, including Cambridge, LSBU and Royal Holloway. The Italians have translated the entire program and are taking it through their university system, high schools and dyslexia centres.
In 2009, Student Finance England began funding SuperReading for all dyslexic university students in the UK. It is the only such course they fund. Five independent studies across 33 universities confirm that all dyslexics become better readers than their non-dyslexic peers over a 10-week timeframe.
