I was experiencing teacher burnout 21 years ago and then I discovered OptimaLearning! I have used OptimaLearning techniques and music to teach foreign languages, for teacher training and in my college courses. The students are remarkably more engaged in the learning process and I find myself eager to enter the classroom.

Students of all ages from pre-school to high school and college, teachers of all subject matter areas from special education to gifted programs, and parents have dramatically improved memory, comprehension and creativity. They have eliminated boredom from their work and made learning and teaching exciting and fun.

To study for the exam to sell securities I used the OptimaLearning Self-Instruction model. It helped me to organize my studies, gave me tremendous endurance (I studied seventeen hours at a time with enthusiasm) improved significantly my comprehension and retention and most of all enabled me to conquer the wall-of-fear associated with the securities business. It transformed this fear into creative and productive energy.
—G.C., Redding, California

I appreciated your comments on making my storytelling sessions as Hans Christian Andersen into an OptimaLearning experience. I have utilized your suggestions many times since then and found it to work well with involving the children even more. Last week a friend came to see my Andersen show for the first time and commented on how well I involved the children, "Much like I imagine H. C. would have done", he said.
