How to Get Better Grades with Less Time Studying
If you want to get better grades while still having a social life and time to do the things you love, then this letter will show you how.
Dear Fellow Student,
If you’re like most students, you wish you didn’t have to study so much.
Studying takes a lot of time, time that could be spent on other things like friends, family and getting a job.
Fortunately for you, you’re probably doing quite a few things wrong.
Here’s the thing: you have your study habits and you like to do things certain ways. Some ways work better than others, but you’ve probably never taken an in-depth look at the way you study.
If you did, you’d probably realize you could do a lot more in a lot less time.
I was just like you
I was in the same boat as you for a good chunk of my schooling, right up through high school. I did dual-enrollment at my local college and, though I did manage to balance things out pretty well, school still took up a lot of my time.
A lot more than I wanted.
And then I left for the seminary.
Yup. For two years, I attended a seminary and studied to become a priest.
And while I was there, we were so busy that I had very little time for studying. Procrastination was suddenly no longer an option. If I procrastinated on anything, I was done for.
Suddenly I had to “figure out” how to study. I started doing some research. I looked at how I studied … how I read, how I took notes, how I studied for tests. How to get as much as I could out of the limited time that I had.
I won’t say that my academics instantly became completely effortless, because they didn’t.
I will say that I became a lot more efficient at learning and retaining information.
And then, one day, my already-limited study time dropped even more.
See … I was a skinny, nerdy, awkward guy. I mean, I still am, but that’s beside the point. The point is that my superiors accurately noticed that I needed to grow as a human being more than grow in academics.
So I was called in and sat down and told, “I want to see you in the common room every day, and I don’t want to see you studying.”
That’s right – I was forbidden from studying.
It would be the ultimate test of what I’d learned.
Now, I’ll admit that I did still study, but it was only about 15 minutes a day, tops.
I spent a lot more time hanging out and doing other things I loved. And I did end up growing as a human, too, so it ended up being a good thing for me.
And my academics?
At the end of my time there, I left with a GPA of 3.94.
How did I manage to do it? It’s not because I’m super intelligent or anything like that.
It’s because I learned how to study, how to get good grades while still having time for doing other things.
I’m finally sharing my secrets
Today, I’d like to share with you the secrets of my success as a student.
And, now that I’m a teacher myself (high school English!), I can tell you some secrets from that side of the classroom, too.
Have you ever wondered how to get more out of each and every class you take?
Or how to read a book and remember it?
Or maybe the best way to make your teachers like you without being a suck-up?
You’ll get all that information and more in the
Study Penguin Newsletter
My goal for you?
Get good grades while spending less time studying.
Could you keep plugging away at school like you are now and get good results? Sure you could.
But ask yourself this question:
Are your study habits dragging down the rest of your life?
Let’s face it: school is important, but it’s not the purpose of your existence. The point of school is to give you a basis for lifelong learning, to teach you how to learn.
And the quicker you learn the best ways to learn, the smoother your school and life will be.
Do you want to become a star student?
Do you want to blow through your assignments?
Do you want to spend less time studying and have more time for more important things?
If so, then the Study Penguin Newsletter is for you!
Back in the seminary, I was assigned as a tutor. Later on, I worked as a tutor on my own. Nowadays, I teach high school English.
Through all this time, I’ve seen so many students make so many mistakes and sabotage themselves.

Anyway, here’s the deal:
The Study Penguin Newsletter is just $14 per month. That’s it.
There are no refunds on subscriptions, but you can cancel any time (for any reason).
Fact is, this newsletter is not for everyone.
If you’ve gone through my free “How to Plan, Write and Edit a 10-page Paper in 1 Week with No Stress” email course, you’ll know that success only comes through work.
I can teach you how to work smarter and quicker, but there’s really no way to completely get around working at all.
The Study Penguin Newsletter is NOT for people who don’t care about grades and just want to pass their classes with a minimum of work … or for people who don’t want to take notes or do the basics (like writing down assignment due dates) … or for people who think they can learn a secret trick that will get them As in all their classes within the next week.
If that’s you, then you’re wasting your time. Close this page and go do something else.

If you’re not ready to do some work to actually implement what you’ll learn, then you should not subscribe.
