Homework & Schoolwork Are Exasperating…
for You and Your Child!
- “I forgot my books at school!”
- “I did my homework, but now I can’t find it.”
- “I forgot we had to do that for homework.”
- “It takes me forever to do homework.”
- “I do horrible on tests!”
- “My back hurts from carrying so many folders and notebooks.”
What If Your Child Could Get Better Grades… in Less Time?
The reality is that schools are not teaching our students how to learn or organize. There are a simple set of skills –built on a model of extreme simplicity—that will transform school challenges into success.
When Students Don’t Have These Skills, They Struggle!
“I was getting C’s and D’s. Now I am getting A’s and B’s! I learned how to be organized and how to study…it has made such a difference!”
-Katie H., 11th Grade Student
For some students, the struggle begins in elementary school. For others, the struggle doesn’t kick in until college; 50% of high school “honor” students struggle to pass classes in college.
Employers are desperate for these skills. In the workplace, they are called “soft skills.” In education, we know them as “study skills.” Dozens of employer surveys consistently show that these skills are seriously IN DEMAND! The more information and technology changes, the more these skills are needed.
These life-long skills not only serve students in the workplace, they dramatically improve performance in school, too…
- Study skills increase graduation rates by 7x! A study published by Ohio State University confirmed that study skills make a big difference in school; study skills increased graduation rates by 600%!
- SOAR® Study Skills raises GPAs by ONE FULL POINT! A school in Utah found that the average GPA of their entire student body rose by one full point after adding SOAR® to their curriculum.
“I wish these books were available when I was a sixth grader! I think they are great.”
-Ryan D., Middle School Teacher
“This Sounds Like a Lot of Work!”
In reality, these strategies are very simple and empowering.
However, like most of us parents, you probably have a child that doesn’t want to listen or take “homework advice” from you. If that’s the case, take a look at our School Success Kit or ADHD School Success Kit with supplies and videos that take all of the pressure off of you.
There’s a “New” Way to Approach Learning & Organizing!
School, homework, and learning should not be an exercise in misery! The problem is that students are never taught how to apply strategy to schoolwork. Yet, students know how to use strategies to play sports, video games, manipulate their parents and teachers…
Students love “strategy!” At SOAR®, we have compiled simple strategies, compatible with how the brain works.
Verified to Be “Student-Friendly”
All of our strategies are filtered through our three criteria for being “student-friendly”:
First, strategies must be effective. Obviously!
Second, strategies must be efficient. Let’s face it, students are human and human-beings have a natural aversion to things that are complicated and time-consuming.
Finally, strategies must apply across content areas to avoid confusion! There are many study skills that are useful techniques, but we only selected or developed strategies that apply across content areas so that students will clearly understand the appropriate times/settings to use the strategies. This approach empowers students to confidently take more responsibility for their own work and develop a more strategic approach to all of their learning.

The teachers loved the book and ‘did not want it to end.’ We think this book will help our students be more successful and has offered our students a foundation to goal setting and organizational skills that they will build on for the rest of their education. Thanks so much!”
