Smart Study

If your school orders 50+ copies of the book, ‘Brainpower Smart Study’ @ $27 AUD each, it includes one 3-hour workshop at a mutually convenient date. The workshop can either be to your students whether a small group or whole school event, or to teachers only as in-service training. 

After the introductory session:

Keep the books as a teacher resource to use. Year after year, using our Lesson Plan and PowerPoint slideshow, your teachers can introduce next year’s students to the 8-step method. Kindle eBook downloads also available to students.

We encourage one or more teachers be nominated to sit in on the workshop so in subsequent years they can deliver the same workshop.

Travel within Australia: If outside metropolitan Sydney, Australia, may include car travel or air travel in addition, depending on location and date. (Ask about Nina Sunday’s travel schedule; she may be in your state – or country – in the near future.)
