Benjamin’s fascination with learning skills began while he was in high school, when he discovered the benefits of speed reading, memory training, and note-taking. He immersed himself in the field, exploring and experimenting with various techniques and courses.
In college, Benjamin had the opportunity to teach study skills to high school students, preparing them to handle college-level work. He witnessed first-hand the benefits of such training as he observed students accelerating their degrees. One student in particular completed his Bachelor’s degree before his 18th birthday. Benjamin himself managed to accelerate his education, completing his business degree on his 20th birthday without debt, grants, or scholarships.
After college, Benjamin continued to explore learning strategies. Gradually, he realized that although there was a plethora of information and products about learning, there still seemed to be a lack of structure. He could not find one comprehensive, step-by-step learning system and felt that many courses were too long and complicated to be useful for the full-time student or professional.
As an avid learner, Benjamin felt compelled to find solutions and began to experiment with his own learning system, which culminated with the launch of The Way of the Learner, an organization dedicated to equipping students and professionals with transformational learning techniques. Its aim is to find innovative ways to integrate proven learning principles into easy-to-learn, comprehensive systems.
