Matthew Grant is currently a Bachelor of Arts student at the University of Melbourne, the number 1 university in Australia, and ranked 33 in the world by THE Times Higher Education World University Rankings for 2014-2015.

When Matthew was in High School, he found that he was not achieving the grades needed to get into the University course he wanted (Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne). He procrastinated regularly, was stressed and unmotivated, and constantly forgot what was taught in class. Knowing that he could not get into the course he dreamed of getting into, he spent hours upon hours researching and attending workshops that costed hundreds of dollars on various study techniques that could help improve his grades.

After modifying and implementing these study techniques, Matthew saw a significant increase in his grades and academic performance. When Matthew received his study scores, he found that not only could he get a guaranteed spot at the University of Melbourne, but he also had the score to guarantee a spot in law, commerce and engineering in the top universities in Australia.

With this academic success, Matthew now wants to share the same study techniques with Current School students who are in the same situation that he was in just a few years ago. Matthew wants to create Study Skill courses that are not only of high quality, but are highly affordable and easy to implement; For Matthew wants to see all Students achieve the grades they desire and deserve.
