Study Skills Summer Boot Camp

This week-long scholarly boot camp is designed for students of all levels. We will cover both valuable executive functioning skills (working memory, cognitive flexibility, and self-mastery) as well as basic academic tips and techniques to help you manage your courses. The goal is to discover and exercise logical, practical, and immediately useful study skills.

Over the course of the week, you will: discover how to leverage your personal learning preferences; learn to read smarter, not longer; learn strategies to keep  from getting lost under piles of notes, assignments, tests, and quizzes; master the skills to become critical thinkers; and learn communication strategies to keep from falling behind.

Three sessions of this course will be offered–one in June, one in July, and one in August. For more information contact Clare Sharp — .

Clare Sharp, B.A.

Clare Sharp received her B.A. in Liberal Arts from Wyoming Catholic College, a small Great Books-based college in the middle of the beautiful Wind River mountains.  This education gave her not only a love for classical learning, but also a love for experiential learning – learning through experience and immersion in the beauty of nature. She taught for four years at Great Hearts Academies in San Antonio, Texas, teaching 2nd grade, kindergarten, and 6th grade both as an Assistant Teacher and as a Lead Teacher.  When she is not teaching or learning, she loves spending time with her husband and baby daughter, wrestling with her dogs, playing piano and guitar, reading a good book, and baking yummy food.
