 How Is The Program Structured?

For your convenience, you can choose between two formats each of which covers the same material, whether done online or face-to-face:

  OPTION A: 1 Day Program. Delivered in 1 day, usually from 0930 to 1630 or from 1000 to 1700. Perfect if you want to cover all the material in the shortest possible time and in just one go.

  OPTION B: 2 Session Program. Delivered in two 3.5 hour sessions, ideally one week apart. Ideal if you find two shorter, separate sessions more convenient.

With both options, the program is broken up in to a number of short modules each of which covers one or several key strategies or techniques. These progressively build on each other and regular short breaks are taken to maintain attention and focus. In this way, it is possible to easily absorb and learn the techniques covered whether done in one go or two shorter, separate sessions. 1 Day Program Discount: As less preparation time is required when the program is done all in one go a $100 discount applies to the 1 Day Program option.

  Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to some frequently-asked questions about this program. If you have other questions before you register for your Gloo 1 To 1 Program, feel free to call us on 02 9089 8892.

1. When Do The Sessions Take Place?

Available all year round and at a time to suit you, this combined Memory/Speed Reading Program can be taken on weekdays, Saturdays or selected Sundays. Face-to-face sessions at Gloo in Sydney take place during the daytime. Online sessions take place during the daytime plus are also available on selected weekday evenings.

2. Where Do The Face-To-Face Sessions Take Place?

Face-to-face sessions take place in Balmain in Sydney's Inner West which is 5km or 10 minutes from Sydney CBD Google map. Face-to-face sessions take place during the daytime. Alternatively, programs can also be delivered at your home or place of work within the Sydney metropolitan area at no extra charge if done in one session.

Not in Sydney or prefer not to travel? You can also take this training as an online program from the comfort and convenience of your home or office, see next two questions for details.

3. How Does The Online Program Option Work?

For Online Programs we use a web-based training delivery platform which enables us to share video and audio in real time. So it is similar to a face-to-face session just done via computer or tablet and over the internet. The platform also allows us to share documents and you are able to view the supporting PowerPoints we use as we progress through the training. For online programs you simply need broadband internet access plus a computer or tablet with webcam and microphone.

4. Is There Any Difference Between Online And Face-To-Face Programs?

Both options are live, one to one training and cover exactly the same ideas, techniques and content. Some people prefer to learn face-to-face in the same room and so this is a good choice if you are based in (or can travel to) Sydney. Online Programs offer more flexibility in terms of scheduling and can also save on travel time and costs. Both options work well, cover the same material and achieve the same results.

5. Is It Possible To Take The Program With Someone Else?

Yes, you can take this program with up to two additional people at the same time. The cost for each additional person is $200 including GST. So if you take the 1 Day Program at the current special rate with a friend or colleague the total cost is $695 + $200 = $895, equivalent to c$450 each, a saving of over $400 per person compared to the normal individual 1 Day Program price.

6. Is This Program Suitable For Students?

Learning how to study effectively is crucial to academic success. For this reason, we offer separate 1 To 1 Programs specifically tailored to the needs of students:

  Essential Study Skills For High School Students

  Essential Study Skills For University Students

For high school students we also run a special Essential Study Skills 1 Day Workshop at various times throughout the year in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra.
