BUILDING BRILLIANT MINDS! Unlock The Brain's True Potential For Better Learning Skills with our Unique STUDY METHODS course.
Do you feel like this?
You're feeling stuck as a parent, unsure of how to support your child's test and exam preparations.
Homework and study sessions always lead to conflicts and frustration in your household.
Evenings are consumed by the struggle to catch up on homework, leaving you, and your child drained.
Your child's self-esteem is suffering, and they often use derogatory terms like "dumb" or "stupid."
Despite all the effort, your child's academic performance doesn't reflect their hard work.
The study techniques and summaries you've tried before just don't seem to work for your child.
Money spent on buying summaries is wasted and unhelpful.
You're struggling to teach your child to become an independent learner.
You're on the verge of giving up and need help with your child's studying.
You're in desperate need of support to help your child succeed in their studies.
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.
Determined to make a change and equip students with essential study skills, we embarked on a mission to create a course that would demystify the art of studying. Over the years, we continuously improved and adapted our techniques, ensuring they were accessible and effective for students as young as grade 4.
Our course has evolved, but our core mission has remained the same: to empower every child, regardless of their background or learning style, with the skills to become independent learners. Because that's what it's all about—learning how to learn.
We've witnessed the same struggles we once faced in today's students and parents. The frustration, the overwhelm, the sense of helplessness. But we're here to change that narrative. We've seen the impact of our course firsthand as we've presented it to groups of eager learners over the years.
And now, we're thrilled to take the next step in our journey. Our course is available online, accessible to students and parents worldwide. We've also have dedicated BIOLINK agents to help spread the knowledge and techniques we've developed. Our goal is simple: to let every child know they can acquire the invaluable skill of becoming an independent learner.
Studying isn't a mystery; it's a step-by-step process, and we've broken it down into an easily understandable framework. It's all about learning unique skills and putting them together in a way that makes sense to each student.
To parents, we want to convey a vital message: investing in your child's learning journey at an early age is an investment in their future independence. By teaching them these skills now, you're paving the way for them to become self-reliant, confident learners who can tackle any challenge that comes their way.
We're excited about the impact our course has had and will continue to have on young minds.
Not just "ANOTHER" Study Methods Course
We promise success if implemented
Proven Track Record
Targeted Age Group
Our course boasts a proven track record over the past 12 years, delivered in group settings, and presented at schools
Have you ever wondered why many children tend to procrastinate when it comes to studying? The answer lies in their struggle to initiate their study journey because they don't know what to do or where to start.
Developing Executive Function Skills
We specifically designed this course for children aged 9 to 15, as it concentrates on subjects where direct study efforts significantly affect grades – what we refer to as 'bum in the seat subjects.' However, the Executive Function Skills component applies to students aged 9 and above. Here, we empower learners to set goals, effectively manage their time, and enhance their organisational skills. We firmly believe that introducing study techniques and skills to children at a young age establishes the groundwork for their future independence.
As your child progresses into Grade 4 and beyond, executive function skills like planning, organisation, and analysis become increasingly essential. Our course not only teaches study skills but also imparts expert guidance on nurturing these skills, ensuring your child's success in all academic areas.
Support Beyond the Course
We go the extra mile by providing post-course support at our Centre's to reinforce the skills learned and help your child achieve their academic goals.
Memory and Summary Techniques:
Retaining information is pivotal for academic triumph, as exams and tests assess what your child has learned. Our course includes a range of memory and summary techniques to choose from. With consistent practice and the development of executive function skills, your child will effectively manage homework, study time, and ultimately achieve their academic aspirations.
If there is no agent in you're area you can enroll you're child in our online course. Here you have access lifetime access to study materials.
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 until 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.

A must do course
With a dark cloud hanging over me, I walked into the room, but these 2 Free Staters brightened up my day and my child's day... they don't make empty promises, it's all proven that same day. My child walked out with confidence, because he no longer saw himself as "dumb"... he realised he could tackle everything on his own. MUST DO COURSE....it’s an eye opener. It helped Johanco to see his schoolwork in a completely different light. MARIANNE & JOHANCO VAN ZYL

We left with a concrete plan.
We had the pleasure of attending the workshop, and it was truly a remarkable experience. The insights I gained were invaluable, as they seamlessly connected various aspects for me. One aspect I particularly enjoyed was the taking meaningful notes during the class. One of the standout strategies we learned was effective time management. The workshop was exceptionally well-organized and, surprisingly, a lot of fun. It felt like we not only gained knowledge but also left with a concrete plan in hand. The relaxed atmosphere created by the presenter was incredible, making the learning process enjoyable. I wholeheartedly recommend this workshop to anyone seeking the tools their children will need to become independent in school. It's an absolute must-attend, and I am confident that you will find it as enriching as I did. ANJA & AMORE
