Free Learning Masterclass: Double Your Memory & Learning Speed
Your one opportunity to gain an unfair learning advantage based on the latest cognitive research.
Are you so preoccupied with constant revision that you lack personal enjoyment time?
Are you frustrated over results that do not reflect the effort you put in?
Do you feel lost when studying and believe there is a better solution?
Join Archer Newton (iCanStudy Senior Learning Coach) and Michael Tsai (Co-founder & CEO) in our upcoming free, purely educational 2.5-hour masterclass workshop to learn how to understand and memorise information twice as fast and fast-forward your journey towards becoming a top-performing student.
Archer will be unpacking the core ingredients to hyper-efficient learning (scientifically proven, of course!) to improve your study outcomes to top your next exams drastically. In this workshop, we will cover:
The roadmap to learning efficiently as a busy student
Common methods of studying that create unnecessary wasted time and effort
The latest evidence-based learning methods to double your memory and learning speed compared to conventional studying methods
Practical session: Interactive session to practice our step-by-step learning system that has been successfully trialled on tens of thousands of students across the world
At the end of the session, we will open to Q&A with Archer and Michael to answer any of your burning questions about anything you’d like to learn more about.
Please note that this workshop will not be teaching “fast hacks” or “quick tips”. These kinds of tips are rarely enough to make a significant difference. Instead, we will be working through the first steps toward creating long-term, sustainable change. All our advice is supported by research where available and backed up by our experience. We will clearly communicate which parts of the techniques are based on research, experience, or both

He maintained a 100 GPA during his final year of high school (the highest possible score), as well as founding and managing 2 businesses, playing in multiple school bands, and maintaining a substantial social life. Since graduating, Archer has spent most of his time (while going through medical school), learning to become an educator and teaching other students how to achieve similar results.
