If you are a parent who wants to become actively involved in your child’s education then the book ‘7 Ways You Can Help Your Child Overcome Homework & Study Problems’ is just what you need to ensure you have some of the key skills and strategies required to turn your child into an independent learner who will be able to excel at school and beyond.

We have decided to make an electronic version of the Book available to you for FREE because we are concerned that many teachers and parents seem to be very confused about what is really involved in educating children so they can become competent and independent learners.

When we talk to parents who get us to tutor their children, we find their misconceptions about learning have often meant that they have spent years trying to fix the symptoms of the problems rather than the causes – and had little or no success. And every month that goes by without getting the underlying problems fixed means their child gets further and further behind, and much more stressed.

You will be able to enhance your child’s learning ability quite significantly by following the suggestions in the Book.

If you run into problems you can’t deal with, the Book will at least have helped you to isolate the skills your child is lacking. This will enable you to work out the sort of outside help you need to overcome his/her problems. If you decide to use our educational services, we are able to provide expert diagnosis and individual tutoring for you child, and parenting support for yourself. This can be done at our office in Adelaide (South Australia), or live over the internet anywhere in the world.

By the way, if you would prefer a printed copy of the book it is available from our office for $37.00)
