Study Smarter, Achieve More. Essential Study Techniques Every Student Should Know.
If you're at college or university, or you're starting shortly, then our 1 To 1 Essential Study Skills Program will show you how to read faster, remember more and achieve your best possible results. Which will make your college or university experience more enjoyable and less stressful! Delivered in person by Australian Memory Record Breaker Chris Lyons, this 1 To 1 Program will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to study much more efficiently and effectively.
Focused on three key areas - Memory Techniques, Speed Reading and Effective Note-taking - you'll learn how to absorb new information quickly and easily using powerful study techniques most university students are never ever shown. What's more, Gloo 1 To 1 Programs are fun, fast and effective!
You can take this 1 To 1 University Study Skills Program from anywhere in Australia using Zoom. In Sydney? You can also do the Program face-to-face at Gloo in Balmain or directly in your home.
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 9.30am to 4pm, start time can be flexible. 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 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.
If you live in Sydney, this Program can be done face-to-face at Gloo in Balmain. It can also be delivered directly in your home within the Sydney metropolitan area at no extra charge if done in one session.
Not in Sydney? The Program can also be done live online from the comfort of your home using Zoom, which means you simply need a computer or tablet with a webcam and microphone and a broadband internet connection in order to take part. See the FAQ below for more details.
