About This Class

Learn to harness your ADHD superpowers and start earning grades that match your ACTUAL potential and intellect (without sacrificing your mental health 8 sanity)!

Award-winning medical school professor, author and psychotherapist Alina Kislenko MA RP, who has ADHD herself and specializes in it (so....she gets it) takes you through cutting edge, research-supported methods and counter-intuitive approaches that you've likely never tried before. AND, you get to learn all this in short little videos while laughing along with Alina's absurd analogies, dark sense of humour, and fun graphics (she'll do anything to help you learn, including embarrassing herself and the ones she loves :p).

Alina herself went from almost failing out of undergrad to graduating in the top of her class from her graduate studies and wants to show you how you can too!

These methods come from her own successful experience improving her grades (and her husband's, who also has ADHD) as well as lessons learned from her thousands of clients during the decade that she's been obsessed with this field.

In This Course, You'll Learn How To:

  • Predict The 3 Parts of Most Exams (& The ADHD Way To Study For Them!)

  • Convert Your Learning From Bottom Up To Top Down

  • Why ADHDers Learn Differently & How to FINALLY Harness Our Intellect  (Including a short neurobiology lesson!)

  • Apply Quick Tricks Right Away To See A Boost In Your Grades

  • Learn Relationships Between Concepts, The ADHD Way

  • Memorize anything, including ADHD-friendly memorization tricks

  • Do The Super Student Method

  • Avoid & Recover From The Dreaded Slide (The Cause Of Most Of Our Pain)

  • Tame The Last Minute Monster (And All About The Cordrenaline Effect that Causes It)

  • Start (and finish!) Anything Boring & Get It In ON TIME!

  • How to Start the Semester Off Right

  • Recognize Your Procrastination Type & Prevent Episodes

  • Self-Advocate & Access Accommodations and grants

The videos in this course were filmed all over the world while Alina was travelling for international advocacy work, including Bali, Cuba, Quebec, and Italy, which adds a bit of extra oomph to the course!

This course was made for us ADHDers, but would do wonders to anyone's grades!
