A Wizards Guide to Study Skills

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, February 15, 2018 / -- Do kids really like to learn? Yes, it’s natural to want to know more! So why is it that they experience frustration and don’t always succeed? Why are standardized scores down? The answer is in giving kids the right tools and teaching them better, more self-directed strategies. Perhaps the best answer would be to show them “The Wizard’s Way.”
Renowned educator Irene J Hartzell, who has over 30 years of diverse experience in teaching and counseling, has created a book called A Wizards Guide to Study Skills. While it is aimed at middle schoolers, the skills it teaches will have value for students throughout high school and beyond.

From how to handle stress and homework, to how to improve reading speed, to becoming more focused and organized, Hartzell’s book offers all the tricks. It is also packed with whimsical photos of kids wearing coned hats and holding wands, and wizard-friendly artwork like castles and owls. It’s all part of its kid-friendly nature, and the reason that the children who reviewed it during development all loved it so much.

A Wizard’s Guide to Study Skills uses an innovative, knowledge-centered approach, based on research findings about human learning (some of which Harztell was involved with early on in her career.) She has a BA in Psychology and an MA in Counseling Psychology, as well as a PhD in Counseling Psychology, which she was awarded at the University of Oregon. She now lives in Seattle WA, and can connect remotely with interested parents and other educators.

So, just what can students derive from this guide? They will have the practical tools to study better and take tests without stress. They can take charge of their own learning and make things happen. They can learn to deal with the homework matrix. They will understand and increase reading speed. They will even become better at managing time, doing large projects, and loving tough subjects like math. Children will be better prepared for STEM subjects and future schooling and careers.

The book is available on as a Kindle E-Book or Print-On Demand soft cover. Hartzell hopes parents and teachers listening out there will pick up a copy. All they’ll have to do is show it to the child and the rest will be, well, magical.

CUTV News will feature Irene J. Hartzell, educational psychologist and author in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on February 19 at 3:00pm EST.
