Who are We?
We strive to raise our children to believe they can achieve anything and be who they want to be. That success is measured not only by your grades, qualifications or job title but also by who you are as a person and what you have achieved with the opportunities provided—being happy and content with your life and making a difference in other people's lives.
However, we grew up with different beliefs. We grew up believing that good grades were the only thing that mattered. I would argue that we were bright students who studied hard but never achieved 'top' grades. We learned exactly how children do it today, and our parents helped us exactly how parents do these days but without buying summaries. LOL
Because our grades were between 50% - 65%, we believed we were dumb, stupid, and slow, and our self-esteem plummeted. Only years later did we realize that we didn't know how to study and, secondly, did not have the skill to plan, organize and prioritize. The way our parents tried to help us was not what would have worked for us. Amazingly today, it is still the same reason children struggle.

FYI we are also the owners of Biolink Brain Training. We have branches across South Africa. At our centres, we teach and develop cognitive and executive function skills for students, and these skills form the foundation of learning.
Not Just Another Study Methods Course
Academic success depends mainly on a learner's ability to apply proper study skills, methods and techniques and then develop these skills into a habit of studying more productively and independently.
Common mistakes PARENTS make
Trying to teach your child how YOU studied. Your way might not work for your child. Does this cause conflict between you?
BUY summaries or MAKE the summaries for your child. It is very difficult to understand the thought process of the person that made the summary. The child must UNDERSTAND the material's content to make sense of the summaries.
Help them study. The parent will help their child by asking questions, definitions etc., and the child must repeat the answer till it's remembered. The problem is that the child learns like a parrot, and remembering the information is very hard. The reason: they don't have a clear understanding of the content.
Common mistakes CHILDREN make
Waiting for Mom & Dad to help them learn.
They read the material repeatedly and hope to remember the information - like a parrot.
Rewrite material - they make summaries by simply rewriting the material. The problem is that they spend so much time rewriting the content but still need to learn and try to remember.
They don't fully grasp certain concepts - again, they try and remember the work like a parrot.
If you can relate to any of the above scenarios, we want you to know that we understand entirely.
As parents, we understand the daily demands and challenges our children experience in school. Lack of time, homework, reports, assignments, complicated and difficult schoolwork, busy schedules, extramural activities, etc., are all challenges they face daily.
We have been teaching study skills & techniques for the last 11 years, have identified the exact problem areas our children struggle with and developed the solution to help our kids achieve success. Each child is different and should ultimately develop their own learning style for it to become a habit.

What makes this Course Unique?
This study method course aims to teach learners new study methods and techniques to learn more efficiently and retain material for extended periods. The goal is to develop these skills, become a habit and ultimately save themselves hours of study time.
"Wouldn't that be great?"
We developed a learning proses with steps where children know exactly where to start and what to do, so they can comprehend the content before making any summaries.
They can recall information BEFORE writing and making summaries, dramatically reducing study time while retaining the information for longer.
The ability of any learner to study successfully depends to a great extent on their fundamental study skills, i.e. their ability to concentrate, to perceive correctly and accurately, and to remember what has been perceived.
WE PRACTISE, PRACTISE AND PRACTISE
The best way to identify which method works best for your child is to practise all the different methods and see which one works best for your child currently.
WE TEACH ALL THE METHODS
As your child goes through school, with more subjects etc., they need to learn how to use both the left & right side of the brain to study different subjects. The brain is wonderful, and these SKILLS can be taught and practised.
As your child enters Grade 4 and beyond, they will increasingly rely on executive function skills like planning, organisation, and analysis. However, many children struggle with these skills because they have not yet fully developed. This can lead to difficulties with homework, study time, and academic performance. That's why our study methods course goes beyond just teaching study skills - we also provide expert guidance on developing executive function skills that will help your child succeed in all areas of their academic life.
Retaining information is crucial for academic success, as exams are designed to test what your child has learned from classroom instruction and self-study. Our course includes a variety of memory and summary techniques to choose from By practicing these techniques and developing executive function skills, your child will be equipped to stay on top of their homework, manage their study time effectively, and achieve their academic goals. Don't miss out on this essential opportunity - enroll your child in our study methods course today!
