Do you find you’re unable to concentrate for very long? Do you drag your feet when it comes to revision? Or, that you can focus at work or the library, but working from home is impossible?
Well, this concise course will take you through the actionable steps you can take to turn this around, immediately.

Why is this a concise course?
This is a concise course because why would you want to spend 2, 3, 4 hours about learning to study? That’s not productive for you right now. This is why I created a concise course, the lesson material is 30 minutes long and divided into 11 rules, so you can implement productivity skills straight away.

How to use this course?
Listen to the whole course, then choose 1-2 rules to put into action immediately (I recommend implementing with rules 3 and 5 to start). Once you get comfortable with these, then add in another. The aim is to build habits and environmental cues that will help you streamline your brain, but subconsciously, so you can keep yourself focused on the work in front of you.

Course Content
In this concise course I will take you through 11 actionable rules that can help you increase your ability to focus and get work done.

1. Go to the library (if you can)
2. Turn your desk away from relaxation places
3. Use a study lamp** (start here)
4. Get rid of distractions
5. Study in 20-30 minute chunks** (start here)
6. Take regular breaks to reward your studying
7. Intend to learn
8. Learn concepts
9. Use mnemonic devices to learn facts
10. Get enough sleep
11. Eat properly.

Some of these rules may seem like common sense, but the question is: are you doing them? If you aren’t, why not?
In these short videos I take you through the “why” not just the “what.” This is important to help you understand why you are going to put in the effort to build these habits. The end result of productivity is nice, but it’s the work in between that takes the discipline so you can reach your goal.

Private Tutor specialising in English, History & RE
I have been a private tutor since graduating from university in 2014. My academic career began at an international secondary school, I took the International Baccalaureate with Higher Level English, History and Visual Arts and my extended essay discussed whether the church is a building or it’s people. After a gap year, during which I worked for a charity and travelled in India and Europe, I attended the University of Manchester. Upon completion I was awarded a 2:1 in the Study of Religions & Theology.
Tutoring is a personal passion. I enjoy teaching; diving into academic study and showing students how rich it can be. We tackle challenging material unravelling its intricacies then analysing its ideas. The techniques I teach my students are tried and tested methods I’ve used for the last 10 years.
Through my lessons all students make improvements. One student in particular made massive improvements. She was studying for a her GCSEs and struggling. Her History and Religion marks were stuck at 56%. After 6 months of lessons she jumped to a massive 85% in her GCSE mocks! Needless to say, she, her parents and I were very happy!
