Study Skills

This 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 this class, 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.

Allison Gray, B.A.

Allison Gray earned her B.A. at Trinity International University in Chicago, IL, studying intercultural studies, counseling, and social services, and participating in the honors program.  For her senior thesis she examined a theology of beauty, and the relationship between Christianity and the arts, particularly literature.  Allison spent three years at Great Hearts Classical Academies, where she served as a teaching assistant and taught reading interventions to low-tiered students. She has written literature curriculum for Great Hearts, and homeschool curriculum for the Christian Character Formation Project.

Allison lives with her family in southern Arizona, where she still misses the colorful seasons of the Midwest.  She loves sharing her love for books and nature with her children, hiking and reading Lord of the Rings with her husband, crocheting, burying herself in classical literature, and baking bread.
