Power Study Skills: Tools for Student Success

Our Power Study Skills curriculum provides students in grades 6-12 with essential study skills needed to succeed in middle school and high school courses. Founder and instructor, Susan Santucci, is a study skills expert and author with a Master’s degree from Harvard and more than 20 years teaching experience.

This course is based on the groundbreaking concepts of Carol Dweck’s bestselling book Mindset. Dweck, a professor at Stanford University, is one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of motivation and learning. Her research shows that teaching students how their brains learn and remember helps them achieve far more than if they received simple tutoring in study skills or academic subjects alone.

Students who complete our programs:

  • Develop a “growth mindset,” so that they think of their intelligence not as a fixed quality but as a muscle to be developed.
  • Increase their motivation to learn
  • Want to work harder
  • Persist through difficulty.
  • Improve their study skills
  • Earn higher grades

Topics addressed in the course include:

  • Focused instruction on how the brain learns and strategies for improving memory.
  • Getting organized and time management.
  • How to improve memory.
  • Mastering textbook material and increasing reading speed.
  • Test preparation and test-taking skills.
  • Note-taking from lectures
  • Strategies for answering multiple choice, true-false, and matching questions.
  • Taking essay exams.

We're eager to serve you and we look forward to hearing from you

I just had to write you and tell you that Lacey is doing awesome and has straight A's! Thank you for everything. If I hadn't found you, and you hadn't identified her ADHD and sent us to the Tridas Center, I'm sure we wouldn't be here right now. Hope you are having a great day and feel good about the difference you made in a young girl’s life.
