Paul Rivas, of Smith Rivas Academic Coaching & Consulting, is the leading study skills teacher in the metro DC area. He inspires students to seek more than they think is possible, teaches them how to achieve it, and pushes them toward peak performance.
As Paul says, “If you have to ‘study’, you’re doing it wrong!” Smith Rivas Academic Coaching & Consulting students learn to go to class with a purpose, take better notes, and review their material regularly so that they never have to study.
Since study skills per se is not our area of expertise, I asked him if I could share the information about his upcoming programs with my audience. I think what he offers will speak to many of you!
