Effective studying is a life skill. You can learn how to learn.

Few children learn to study well, and even if they do, they rarely apply it. We solve this problem.

Why I developed this platform. My Story.

As a child, I always felt less smart than the rest. Everyone seemed to get good grades quite easily, but I was studying for a long time and always just got a C, or unfortunately even an F. This was not good for my confidence.

I only learned to learn when I was 21. By consistently applying the right methods well, my grades immediately shot up. There were 4 reasons for this:

  • 1.It wasn't my fault. No one had ever taught me to learn and given me the right tools.
  • 2.It is very easy to learn how to learn very quickly and well.
  • 3.It is very difficult to keep applying new skills without the right help
  • 4.Anyone can do it with the right tools and guidance!

I am proud to say that I have helped and trained more than 200,000 students around the world.

Your child can do better

Less room for error

Many young students study 'in their own way'. They hope for good results, but often in vain. Far to often, they don't understand how best to retain information. With Study Smart, you can be sure that your child is studying the right way. This provides peace and security, both during learning and while taking tests.

Study Faster

Studying effectively is not difficult. By using relatively simple techniques, your child will learn to distinguish main issues from side issues. Also, the material will stick more quickly and they will understand both the relationships and the details more quickly. Learning effectively is a skill, not a talent.

Preparation for the Future

As your child progresses in education, their material becomes more complex. It becomes even more important that they understand how to learn. By already using Study Smart at school and high school, your child will be better prepared for college, or university.

Your child needs the right knowledge and tools

Flashcards, notes and mind-maps

Children learn in many ways, but they often use the wrong techniques. Certain techniques work better than others. With Study Smart, students are optimally supported to use the right techniques and tools so that they learn better.

Clear explanations of the methods

When you have a good understanding of what to do and how to do it, implementation is relatively easy.

Chris explains how to learn in short, fun, and easy to understand videos. Kids love it!

Structure, overview and guidance

The structure in the study tool provides the overview you need. Through automatic reading comprehension, you'll learn to make connections and better separate key and side issues so you're no longer studying ineffectively.

100% sure, 100% remembered

By combining the best methods, your child will learn in the best way.
The system shows how well the materials is memorised by the brain, based on the 'forgetting curve' created by Prof. Ebbinghaus. You can see exactly how well the content in each part of the material is retained.

Follow their progress

As a parent, you can access your child's account.

You can see exactly how well your child knows their subjects, how well your child is progressing in their subjects and much more.

Personal support

Our study coaches provide personalised support when your child has questions about implementing the study tool and the skills, explained and applied to the child's study material.

Students of all ages use Study Smart

High school, college and university students all over the world use Study Smart to master their material, feel confident and achieve better results.

Students use Study Smart to study textbooks, lecture notes, powerpoint slides, and all other types of materials

Study Smart is mostly used for ‘knowledge subjects’ (like history) but it can also be used for languages and math.

Sounds excellent, Chris, but is my child going to do this?

It may be very "new" to your child, but the method is not complex. Using Study Smart, I recommend that you study the first +/- 5 pages of a book (or other study material) with your youngster. This way, you will help your child get started whereafter they can continue alone.

I know I'm not neutral, but I truly believe this way of learning is the greatest educational gift you can give your child. It's 100% worth a try!

Certainly, via the account settings (log in, click on your name at the top right, then on 'account') you can downgrade or cancel with just a few clicks.
You can link 1 parent account to 1 child account. Would you like to register several children? In this case, it is best to register them separately (directly/not linked to an older account), or use another email address.
Everything in the system is personal. A child has their own library, their own progress overviews, their own study settings, their own repetition rhythm, etc. Sharing an account therefore decreases their effectiveness. In addition, sharing an account is not permitted according to our terms and conditions.
The content is exactly the same for all 3 packages, but committing to the service for a longer period of time results in a larger discount.
The knowledge from the workshop applies to all subjects. You can use the study tool for all subjects, but it is best suited for 'knowledge subjects' and languages.
All textbooks with an ISBN are registered in the system. The table of contents of most books is available in the system. If this is not the case, you can easily add material. The study tool teaches you how to create a good summary of your book so that you effectively learn the book. You can easily add the table of contents of all other study material. When material has structure (headings, titles, etc.), you can study it using Study Smart.
To kickstart your child's journey on the way to studying correctly, we recommend that you discover the system together. Make the first flashcards and notes together. This way, you will help your child at the start, allowing them continue alone afterwards. This should take 40-60 minutes max.
Children as yoiung as six can use Study Smart. We also have customers aged 65 and older. When your child is still young, we recommend that you discover the system together and learn the first pages of a study book together.

Some questions you might have

The learning techniques explained in the video workshop are effective for all subjects. Using our study tool, you can learn words, conjugations and translations easily. Of course, you can also learn the theoretical aspects of materials, make summaries, and review using the study tool.
The learning techniques that are explained to you in the Study Smart video workshop work for all subjects. With the study tool, you can study the theoretical parts of textbooks very effectively. This mainly applies to subjects such as chemistry, physics, biology, etc.
As long as your child is motivated to improve their grades, Study Smart works. It offers all the features, tools, and explanations needed for effective studying. Many children find the overview, fun features and repetition methods an enjoyable way of learning because they see themselves mastering the material.
You can cancel a monthly subscription at any time. You can cancel an annual subscription up until to the day of renewal. You can also cancel renewed annual subscription prematurely. In doing so, we will count how many months the renewed account has actively been available in the new term, and multiply this number with the normal monthly fee. The remaining months can be refunded upon request.
It absolutely does! The explanation, overview, structure, reading steps and retention percentages provide a lot of guidance for children with learning difficulties.

Some common misconceptions

This is one of the biggest misconceptions about studying! You can study as hard and as long as you want, but if you're learning inefficiently, you won't understand or remember much of it at all. Only when you start using simple skills and tools will you retain what you have studied.
We love to hear that your child is already getting excellent grades! What our goal is now is to ensure they continue earning those grades. School material becomes increasingly complex, and grades tend to drop significantly from high school to university. By learning efficient and effective study methods, you ensure their grades don’t waver. The Study Smart With Chris study tool is also widely used in higher education.
It makes sense to think this, but it's better to just start now. Your child can just leave the notes where they are (on paper or computer) and continue immediately in Study Smart. For example, if they have already made notes on chapters 1, 2 and 3, just leave them where they are and take notes for chapters 4, 5, etc in Study Smart. They will immediately benefit from all the tools, help and guidance provided by the system.
95% of college students do not use the simplest learning methods. At school, pupils often 'learn to learn', but it is rare that they actually use the most effective techniques. The difference in achievement is made when you constantly apply the right techniques. With Study Smart, this goes without saying. That is why our customers achieve much better grades and make greater leaps in their educational journeys.
