Elevate helps students develop proven and effective study habits. Students are often expected to know “how to study”, but rarely are they able to develop best practice study skills on their own. Elevate’s mix of high impact student, faculty and parent workshops help schools create an environment of best practice, leading to lasting behavioral change for students.
Founded in 2001, Elevate has become an award-winning, global provider of study skills programs. Working with over half a million students across the US, the UK, Australia, South Africa, and Singapore, Elevate has developed a proven track record of engaging students, fostering critical thinking skills, and improving student outcomes through an integrated process that works:
Before each program, Elevate surveys the student body and meets with key members of the School Leadership Team, to identify student needs and skill gaps, in order to develop a curriculum that meets each school’s unique needs.view our programs
Elevate’s team of dynamic and engaging presenters come into the school at strategic points across the year to conduct high impact workshops with class-sized groups. Each session is designed to be very interactive, ensuring that students leave each seminar energized and motivated, with a clear understanding of how to effectively put each skill to use.view our programs
Ensure that your study skills program is more than a one-off. Elevate realises that study skills, like any other set of skills, are built through repetition and review. As such, Elevate provides schools with a range of resources that teachers can use to follow-up in their classrooms, ensuring that students use Elevate’s skills consistently enough that they become habit.view our programs
Every student can connect with Elevate’s online learning community, where they can access a range of resources that they will actually use! This includes practice questions, exam walk-through videos, study and subject tips from former top students, exam preparation courses and more.view our programs
Following the first student workshop, Elevate’s experienced trainers run a practical PD session to ensure that all faculty are aware of the skills that have been covered with their students, as well as global best practice for reinforcing each skill in the classroom.view our programs
Elevate uses a data-driven approach in order to analyze and document the levels of behavioral change in the school’s student body. Schools are provided with a user-friendly impact report that evaluates the program’s effectiveness and can be used to measure and communicate a school’s progress towards its improvement goals.view our programs
Q: How long have you been a presenter for?
A: I have been a presenter for 3 years.
Q: What made you want to be a presenter?
A: Having been a tutor for over 5 years, I’ve seen hundreds of students struggle to understand the knowledge given to them in school, simply because they don’t know how to study. I joined Elevate to helps students realise that with the right study strategies and techniques, it is actually possible for them to get outstanding results. Nothing beats the rush of having students leave a workshop motivated, excited and confident that they can overcome the challenges that school brings.
Q: What is your favourite Elevate seminar?
A: My favourite seminar would have to be Time Management. In my experience this is one thing students always find difficult; there is so much work and so little time! Students always seem to laugh when I speak about my own experiences with procrastination and leave the workshop not only understanding why we get distracted, but how to actually overcome procrastination.
Q: What's a memorable experience you had from presenting in a school?
A: I will always remember the time when a student was disrupting the rest of the class and wasn’t paying attention. I ended up getting him involved through one of our interactions. After that, he was so focused and even asked questions for the rest of the session. He came up to me and said “I really didn’t want to come to this initially because I thought it would be boring and a waste of time, but now I’m glad I came. I know exactly how to study and feel motivated to try some of these tips”. It’s moments like this that show me why I love my job.
