Mike Raven has over 30 years teaching experience. He also has other skills and qualifications in scientific research (PhD), financial analysis (Grad Dip) and professional investigation.

For more than 15 years he has researched and developed courses - covering a multitude of skills, habits and behaviors - to help students of all ages become better learners. All courses are evidence based.

Underlying all of these courses are three important areas - brain science (cognitive neuroscience), philosophy and psychology. As a business he ran the Student Help Centre.

Today he is semi-retired and living in the mountain ranges west of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

While enjoying the hobby-farm lifestyle he in his spare time manages this blog - happy to share his knowledge and experiences with those wishing to become more successful learners and achievers.

Any question you may want to ask on the skills, habits and behaviors of learning are welcome.
