Student Success

Typically, when I’m choosing a topic for my blog, it’s most often about travel or some other interesting event my wife Trisha and I have recently experienced. This time I want to share something very personal I believe could be very useful for the young people in your lives.

As some of you may know, I’m a retired college professor. Coming from a wonderful family background of midwestern farmers, formal academic training was not in abundance. I enjoyed learning but was not a very good student. Fortunately, over time I sought out a number of experts, was able to learn many valuable study skills,, and went on to create several of my own. Academically successful, I earned my B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. As a college professor, I developed numerous study skills courses in which I helped students learn the “secrets” for student success. Over the years I’ve been contracted to teach these courses for numerous notable colleges, universities, and technical schools.

Recently, I’ve condensed and published my materials in a workbook to help guide students from High School through College. It’s titled The Secrets of Student Success Workbook and is available on our website.

Simply go to “Shop,” click on the book, and at checkout type in the code “friends and family” for a $5 discount.
