Nikki Wates

I’m Nikki, and I’ve been working in the field of Study Methodology for over a decade. During this time, and through my own experience as an Occupational Therapy student at the University of Cape Town I have come to understand the needs of learners when it comes to studying and succeeding.

It has become so apparent that although the volumes of content seem to increase each year (forcing learners to condense weeks and months of learning into a single exam), the skills required to do this are often missing. School tells you WHAT to learn, but often they don’t tell you HOW to do it. Through school workshops, parent involvement and a great series of workbooks we have helped countless learners from Grade 4 up to university level to gain a better understanding of how their individual brains like to retain and recall information.

Oh, I’m also a mom to twins who are just about to enter the school system. I love how much they play and feel kids should be able to play for as long as possible. Let’s learn together how to study smartly, so that you can stress less and play more!
