Hear from One of our Parents

Our parents were tired of arguing with their kids about assignments. They knew their students could perform better with a little structure and reliable processes. Our parents could see what was missing, but their child was resistant, creating frustration and tension on both sides.  

Every parent wants their child to succeed, but many don’t know how to help when they struggle.  Our parents have learned to preserve sanity and improve relationships.  The Effective Student™ Method simplifies what a student needs to be successful; engaging them in their own learning, working smarter, not harder.
