This course is the difference between amazing grades and failure. I took every lesson I learned over several semesters of college and distilled them all into this package. Included in this course are 15+ videos that go over all potential roadblocks to a perfect GPA and how to avoid them. In addition, this course includes several worksheets for students to fill out, further personalizing the course to each student that takes it. This course is meant to be completed throughout a college semester at regular intervals. After several videos and worksheets are completed at the beginning of a semester, students should watch and fill out a sheet every single week to keep them on track to the exceptional grades that they want. Take this course if you want to see drastic GPA boost in a short period of time.
After this lecture, students will know exactly how to take notes for their classes. This video explains the modified Cornell note system I created and shows students how to personalize it.
After this lecture, students will know how to create a 'time map' that outlines their weekly schedule. I also explain how the schedule should be crafted specifically to maximize efficiency.
In this quick lesson, I explain a few pitfalls that prevent students from getting the grades that they want. By the end of this video, students will learn how to spend their study time as effectively as possible.
After this lecture, students will know the time-tested rules for where to study for their classes. These general rules ensure that students make the most out of each hour of studying.
This lecture will teach students how to create and work towards several main semester goals. In the video, I explain the importance of several main semester goals and why you shouldn't have too many or too few.
By the end of this video, students will learn to ask themselves some extremely important questions (included in the worksheet). Students will review their class handouts/syllabus and examine what exactly they should spend their time on while studying for each particular class.
After this video, students will learn answers to common questions that occur after the first week of following Successmap. They will also establish the habit of a weekly 'calibration' session over the next several weeks of the semester.
This video should only be watched if a large emergency occurs some time during the semester (illness, family obligations, etc.) Students will learn how to navigate their schedule around any crisis that could potentially derail a successful semester.
Students should watch this video and fill out the worksheet before skipping any class lectures. this will ensure that this decision will not hurt students' chances of earning their desired grades.
After this lecture, students will learn time-tested practices for getting great grades on their exams.
After this lecture, students will learn the formula for writing amazing class papers.
In this video, I offer compelling methods to avoid procrastination. Some of these are specific to students in the Successmap course and will only apply to them.
After viewing this lecture, students will gain an extremely potent tool to improve grades. The worksheet will be filled out after every exam to reach and maintain optimal performance.
Make sure to fill out this worksheet every week during the first few weeks of your semester. Consistently asking yourself the right questions is what separates the good students from 4.0 students. After watching this video, students will be introduced to the early semester calibration worksheet and are strongly encouraged to spend 15-30 minutes per week to fill out the form improve their performance for the next week.
This video should be watched every week after the halfway point of a semester. After watching this video, students will receive another worksheet to be filled out every week. Once again, this will ask questions relevant to that point in a semester and help students focus their efforts towards finishing the semester strong.
This video concludes all the previous lectures and congratulates students for completing a full semester using the SuccessMap student coaching trainer.
My background in college comes from my two years as a Pre-Dental student at the University of Minnesota. After failing a class during my first semester, I decided to spend a great deal of time learning how to study for my college classes. After reading every book on the subject and hundreds of hours of trial and error, I finally created a concise program that teaches students exactly what it takes to get amazing grades in college.
