The Keys to Thriving in School
To thrive in school, you need to manage your mind (e.g., stress, concentration), tasks (what to do), time (when to do it), and – at its center – your Pulls to Action (what's pulling at your attention). Each of these have different strategies and techniques to use at different times.
We created the Academic Trainer to make it as easy as possible for you to use these techniques in your busy life.
You Need an Academic Trainer
Instead of trying to cram tips and tricks into your head, you just need someone to guide you through the actions of being productive and getting eager to do your schoolwork. It needs to be done in a way that’s easy and doesn’t require you to remember a list of steps. What you need is an Academic Trainer.
💪🏼 Fitness Trainers provide just the right amount of action-focused guidance for you to achieve your physical goals. An 📚 Academic Trainer does the same for school and personal goals.
Our online Academic Trainer tools walk you through...
📅 Planning your work for the day, every day
🔥 Finding excitement in boring assignments
🧭 Getting back on track when you find yourself distracted, overwhelmed, or otherwise struggling
🏓 Protecting time for the other activities you want to be doing, whether that’s exercise, hobbies, or spending time with friends
📓 Other essential skills (e.g., note-taking, exam prep) and exam stress
🧠 Thriving with ADHD (if you have it)
What Do the Academic Trainer Tools Look Like?
The Academic Trainer includes:
→ Interactive guides that walk you through daily productivity tasks such as planning your day, managing your Pulls to Action, and getting back on track after distractions.
→ Instructional video and text resources on different topics (e.g., ADHD, note-taking, decision-making)
→ Private discussion forums where you can quickly get the support you need
→ Templates for task, time, and note management
The Academic Trainer is NOT an online course. Those take long and are quickly forgotten. The Academic Trainer quickly gives you the guidance you need, every day that you need it.
This is What Students Have to Say…
"I've tried a lot of different methods for productivity or time management, but nothing seems to really stick for very long. I think the Academic Trainer, because it's interactive and short, worked out a lot of the issues that other productivity systems have. If you're struggling with time management and task management, and particularly if you have ADHD, I think the Academic Trainer can be very helpful."
