Our mission

It is not a secret that education is broken. Please ask yourself:

  1. How much of what I learned in school and university I still remember?
  2. If the amount of time and money spent at school/university was used on something else, what could I achieve?
  3. What percentage of learning was life changing, exciting or simply interesting?
  4. Should I learn something new in real life, to which extent my academic knowledge will help me?
  5. To which extent the teachers were mentor and role models, and to which extent a computer could do a better job?

If you are frustrated, you are in a good company. We were frustrated as well. In fact, we were frustrated enough to find, compile and invent a whole new set of tools that upgrade the learning experience at school and in real life.

These are the most common fallacies preventing our progress towards better education and self-education:

  1. Passively and mindlessly following the teacher. This is our automatic response from the earliest stages of education. It is the most ineffective learning method you see everywhere. If you do not personalize the material you will forget it. If you do not generate deep understanding, you will not know how to use it. If you do not research about the material you will not be able to ask good questions. Effective education is active, creative, deeply personal.
  2. Using grit to fight boredom. If education is boring, this means you should change your perspective. Our learning methodology is highly visual – creative and entertaining, we constantly ask questions trying to build up curiosity, we try to generate a dialogue with the author in our heads. Creativity is the weapon of choice to fight boredom and learn better.
  3. The slower we learn, the better we remember. Repeating the same material at slow rate generates information hunger and your brain will probably phase out. There is an optimal learning speed, which is actually quite fast, usually faster than we talk. There are also scientifically sound methods to optimize repetitions of content. Fast learning is not only fun, it is also more productive both in terms of how fast we learn and in terms of how much we remember.
  4. Waiting for some magic to happen. Learning involves a great deal of work. If this work is properly organized it is a very pleasurable and rewarding experience, yet it is a major effort. No skill can be properly mastered until we train it for a sufficiently long time in many different situations. In most cases, the progress is gradual, with occasional lapses and mistakes. Rigorous training is required for successful learning.

The key that opens the study-skills universe is our imagination. We can visualize and connect information read more

A unified framework of advanced courses

There are new advanced courses on Thinkific. These courses are a great investment for everybody in terms of time, money and return on investment. Since the courses span over multiple subjects and dozens of hours of video, I need to provide a framework unifying the ideas and coordinating the efforts. This is my first attempt to do so.

Timeframe

The original keytostudy exercises were developed by Anna around 2001 when she was only 19 years old, but only around 2010 the training was reduced from the extreme read more

Student testimonies

“My classes with Anna were brilliant. I really learned how to learn and grasp difficult concepts quickly. Something I thought I’ll never be able to do. My only regret is, I didn’t have class my Anna sooner. “

Below are some testimonies of real students from 1:1 with Anna. I selected students randomly, and their responses were spontaneous. You can see the real name and the first letter of the surname. I decided not to fix grammar or change anything to let the people speak read more

One on one coaching with Anna vs other resources

Once a year, we emphasize the role of 1:1 training with Anna. As every year we are asked to explain the advantages of coaching over video courses, I will give it another try,

What is the added value?

The 1:1 with Anna is something pretty unique. Literally, this is the best we can offer. The success rate without 1:1 is often below 60%, as people tend to misunderstand and make mistakes.  The one on one training allows Anna to perform very accurate diagnostic, checking your focus, your eye motion, the distribution of the read more

Why are keytostudy courses different?

You can take many great courses. Why buy the keytostudy courses on thinkific? I am finally in a position to provide a good answer.

Personal support

You can write me [email protected] and I will personally support you. Please do not write me with the materials of other people. I am not supporting Jonathan Levi’s or Anthony Methivier’s courses.

Do not think that I am a marketing genius like Jonathan or a great teacher like Anthony. I am an engineer before everything else. I create tools that are practical read more

Why you need one on one with Anna

One on one with Anna over Skype is the best and most exclusive product we offer. In my mind, all of you are heroes simply because it requires a lot of courage and dedication to change yourself in a profound way. Yet even heroes need help, and here we come to your aid.

I will offer several reasons why 1:1 with Anna are so coveted:

  • There are more than 100,000 superlearners and only one Anna for all of them. Nobody else was qualified for 1:1 training for good reasons.
  • People are different, and sometimes all of us make mistakes. Only a highly experienced trainer can detect small mistakes well before they grow into huge issues.
  • Some methods are tested in 1:1 sessions, so you get access to the most updated methodology, and can even ask me to write a post just for you.
  • Anna is the source, the brains and the heart behind our speedreading methodology. With Anna you do not just learn how to read better, but also get inspired to work hard to improve your reading.
  • Some subjects, including legal, medical and accounting, require some different accents than generic speedreading. Only Anna has enough experience with all kinds of students to provide these minor accents.
  • While we may want very similar things, our priorities are very different. The optimal methodology needs to be adapted accordingly.

The main problem we need to deal with are people who can read quite fast, but do not remember what they read. Like Woody Allen said: “I took a speed-reading course read more

Understanding of similarity of machine learning and human super-learning allowed Lev to learn immense amounts of knowledge in many technological and cognitive subjects. Immediately afterwards Lev opened a consulting company, which offers its services to highly skilled individuals, agile startups and technological giants like Samsung.
